What should I look for in a folding electric bike?
‘Are folding e-bikes worth it?’ is one of the most common questions we get asked when it comes to folding electric bikes.
One of the main benefits of a folding e-bike is its small dimensions. As they fold away, they are effective space-savers versus normal e-bikes, so it’s worth checking out the folded dimensions to ensure it can stash away where you need it to.
You can find e-bikes that fold in the middle on a hinge, or in a compound manner that tucks both the front and rear wheels away.
Just like ordinary e-bikes, ensure that the motor and battery are suited to you and give you the best folding electric bike for you, offering enough power and range to make your ride easy. The great thing about folding e-bikes is that they tend to weigh less than full size e-bikes, making them easier to carry up stairs.
Even better for some, you don’t need to book them onto public transport either because they fit in luggage racks and are considered luggage when folded.
