Which type of electric folding bike is best for you depends on how often and how far you’ll be riding, the type of terrain you’ll ride on, as well as your personal preference. There are a variety of factors to consider when choosing an electric folding bike for yourself, such as weight, power output, range, payload capacity, handling characteristics, braking ability and comfort level.
While there are many different types of electric folding bikes based on the considerations mentioned above, they can broadly be divided into three categories: folding city electric bikes, folding fat tire electric bikes, and folding mountain electric bikes.
Folding city electric bikes, such as the Fiido D11, are designed with a lightweight build and quick-folding design that enables you to store them in a small space when not in use. They are best for people who often need to store their ride in their apartments, RV’s, boats, or anyone who wants to have more flexibility with their transportation options, such as taking their ride on the public transit.
Folding fat tire electric bikes, like the Engwe EP-2 Pro, are best for people who want to take their bikes off the road as well as those who like to have a cushioned and comfortable ride on city bumps and potholes. Folding mountain electric bikes, such as the Cyrusher XF690 Maxs or the Bezior X1500, have larger 26” wheels and are best for those who want to tackle harsh trails and hills.
