The Wonders of Folding Electric Bicycles
Nov 21, 2022
There are many types of electric bicycles but folding electric bikes are very competitive in the marketplace. Although the foldability of the frame affects the stability and riding speed compared with the non-folding model at the same price, its portable and multi-functional application still wins the favor of many riders. This article chooses Cyrusher's latest Bandit to help you explore the magic of the folding electric bicycle.
The Bandit is the latest fold-up electric bike from Cyrusher. The model follows the frame structure of the previous model and optimizes it to make it more portable.
Why did we choose a folding ebike
Save the storage place
One of the main reasons is that folding electric bicycles can save a lot of storage space. It is very portable to carry or store.
The convenience of riding a folding bicycle.
The riding advantage of a folding electric bicycle is that it can be stored and unfolded at will. It can be brought into an elevator and driven directly into the office.
There is no doubt that there are many commuters among the customers of folding electric bicycles. This is because, for commuters, folding models can not only offer transportation convenience but also save parking time and can be stored directly under an office desk. And, you don't have to detour to the parking lot to find your vehicle when you get off work. It also provides a more efficient riding speed while saving time.
The folding models have another significant advantage over standard electric bicycles, which is security. This is a competitive point in the social environment where the electric bicycle theft rate has recently increased rapidly. The vehicle can be folded for easy storage. So, it is not likely to become a premeditated target for thieves as it avoids being exposed outside and can be stored in a safer place. Its portability makes it easily placed under an office desk or stored in the boot of a vehicle. It takes into account most of the potential storage locations, helping people to store it more conveniently.
The guaranteed quality and performance are cost-effective
Now that you have decided to choose a folding electric bicycle, you must select a model with guaranteed quality. Moreover, due to the folding frame the bicycle will have a certain degree of stability and may offer less power than the standard ebike. If you choose a poor-quality frame structure it may cause accidental injuries during riding.
The Bandit is made of aluminum alloy. Although it has shortcomings in its weight, it provides solid stability for the support of the frame. The frame will not rust with long-term use, prolonging the service life of the ebike. The aluminum alloy frame has good toughness, high strength, is easy to maintain and has a particular shock-absorbing effect, which is very suitable for a folding bicycle. Other materials such as rigid carbon, although stronger, may cause the frame to rust when riding in windy and sunny conditions.
The main components of the power system are the motor and the battery. Generally, the quality of the motor determines whether your electric cycle can climb hills. It’s best to select a motor from a well-known brand that has undergone a better-quality inspection. Bandit chooses the Bafang motor; the original model can provide 750w power support and the limited 250w is used to better comply with European traffic rules. Except for power and speed, the dynamic qualities of the entire vehicle are unaffected.
The battery is the energy supply system of the vehicle. The greater the energy supplied, the easier it is to start the motor and ride. Generally, electric bicycle batteries are divided into two types, lead-acid batteries and lithium batteries. Most of them use lithium batteries, which are lighter and normally weigh about 5kg. These are small in size and can keep a large power capacity on reserve , providing more reliable battery life. The number of charging cycles required by the lithium battery prolongs the battery life. However, the price of lithium batteries will also be higher which is one of the reasons for the high cost of electric bicycles. Bandit is equipped with a 48V17ah high-capacity lithium battery which provides reliable support for your riding. The battery is embedded in the frame to prevent the material from oxidizing by liquids splashing on it. It can be easily disassembled with a key, making it more convenient to charge.
The suspension system is a component that can significantly improve riding comfort on an electric bicycle. In particular, the Bandit is equipped with a full suspension system. The suspension system gives your Bandit the ability to go off-road riding. No matter how complicated the ride is, the reliable configuration of full suspension can smooth out all the bumps , giving you a far comfier ride. This makes a folding bike comparable to standard mountain electric bikes.
Fold-up electric bicycles are different from traditional folding bicycles. Due to the assembly of the functional components, these vehicles will not be as lightweight. And, the heavier the bike, the higher the requirements for braking capacity. Brakes with insufficient braking power can easily lead to road accidents.
Bandit uses 180mm dual hydraulic disc brakes and provides the additional motor cut-off function, ensuring the sensitivity of the brakes and the ability to brake quickly.
Bandit's high-end configuration can help you open up many riding possibilities. Check out the various options below to help you get the most out of your Bandit.
