Rear racks :
Our bikes are compatible with all luggage racks on the market adapted for disc brakes and mounting on the seat stays.

The Courcelles model is only compatible with baskets that attach to the top of the fork.

Yes, you can buy a second battery directly from the configurator. You can also purchase a second charger.


The Courcelles is equipped with an electronic system that effectively combats the risk of theft: 75% of stolen bikes were recovered in less than 2 hours!

When the bike is switched off, a motion detector remains active. If the bike moves, it will emit an initial sound and wake up a GPS.

If the GPS sees that its position is moving, the bike will start beeping continuously. You can choose to receive notifications of these two stages (Motion Detection and Flight Confirmation) directly from the app.

We have developed the application for Android and iOS (Apple) operating systems.

The app is essential for pairing the Voltaire Courcelles and linking it to your account.

Our system then allows you to use it with an NFC badge, without relying on your phone. It's the same technology used for contactless payment: reliable, secure and robust.

In addition to unlocking and switching on your bike, the application allows you to :

  • adjust light intensity,
  • choose the level of motor assistance,
  • add NFC badges to unlock your bike,
  • receive notifications in the event of theft.
