Why it Matters to be

American Crafted

Becoming ‘American Made’ solidifies Vela as a premier design-focused e-bike brand. Shifting production to Detroit enables us to dramatically improve serviceability, delivering the highest quality product that our customer deserves. We mean it, with a Lifetime Warranty.

Stop on a Dime

Our improved 160mm mechanically actuated hydraulic disc brakes provide unmatched stopping power. The Vento model takes it even further with active regenerative braking, reducing brake wear (by up to 80%) and extending your range by 10-20%.


Vela’s have always been designed around the ability to service and upgrade the bike’s tech components. Our leather panel is accessible, even more with the Vento, to allow trained professionals technicians to service and upgrade the bike’s electronics

Keep your phone handy

With its sleek design, the Vento includes an integrated Grudi, our phone mount. Keeping your device conveniently within reach while you ride. Access navigation, music, and of course, the Vela App with ease. Stay connected and in control.
