The Quella ELECTRIC Varsity range maintains a vintage retro design with a revolutionary electric motor. The motor and battery fit neatly inside the rear hub in a handsome, stainless steel plated body that enables partial re-charging whilst you ride – say goodbye to sweaty rides (if you want to!). You can arrive at work fresh as a daisy or regulate the power to have a great workout.

Our 'Courier' range utilises bull horn style bars which suit a more sports/aggressive riding style.  If you prefer are more upright/easy riding style then check-out our 'Classic' model with riser style handlebars.

Our electric hub has 4 power levels –

  1. No assist (manual riding)
  2. Eco mode – Pedal assist with maximum distance (50/60km) from one charge.
  3. Turbo – Maximum pedal assistance up to 25km/h with a maximum power of 250W.
  4. Turbo Custom – Create your own Pedelec power mode! You can change 2 parameters: the amount of BOOST the motor gives you at low speed and the overall amount of ASSISTANCE factor of the motor.


There is no need for tax, insurance or a licence as this innovative motor is compliant with EAPC law.

Bluetooth technology links the hub to your phone so you manage your hub settings through an app. The hub incorporates a regenerative KERS (Kinetic Energy Recuperation System) braking system, similar technology as used in Formula One engines, energy is converted to recharge and power the battery whilst back-pedalling and simultaneously slowing the bicycle down.

Extremely lightweight the Quella e-bike starts at just 13.9kg for our 51 and 54cm frames and 15.2kg for our 58 and 61cm frames.

Our eye-catching Varsity Edinburgh is named after Scotland’s most prestigious university town.  This single speed bike is painted with an attractive stone grey frame, evocative of Edinburgh’s famous stone architecture.

Stunning bike!

I have recently purchased a Quella Cambridge e-bike and couldn’t be happier!
The frame and aesthetic is so light and refined that you would never guess it is an assisted bike. I have already used on hills and it feels like riding on a flat surface.
Moreover, they go above and beyond with customer care, so couldn’t recommend it more!

Since I met Chris to test drive my brand new Quella Electric bike, I knew that I was in safe hands- Quella is a helpful, friendly and customer-focused company who are knowledgable about their product. Customer support is 10/10, I've been in touch to order mudguards, ask questions about the operation of my bike- and they're always happy to help. I'm delighted with my choice in bike and company. Thanks***

Brilliant black Friday deal, very fast postage and good service. Items are wonderful and as described on the web site. Second purchase from *** where my son purchased a lovely bike which arrived in perfect condition and on time. A nice and easy web site to navigate with a vast array of items to choose from

Exceptionally pleased with my new ebike from Quella 😁 when I first glanced eyes on her at the London cycle show I knew she was the one. Lovely guys took my order and committed to deliver in a few days. Arrived, unpacked, easy and quick to assemble and she rides like a dream. 1 week on and no issues just plenty of envious cyclist and passer bys who love the look and style. Bike came with a remote but sadly I cannot get it to fit on the wide handle bars but not a major issue.

I've bought a couple of bikes and an e-bike conversion kit from Quella and the bikes are excellent. More than that, their service is outstanding. Well worth a call on any matter, they will sort you out.
