Comfort is a very important factor when buying an electric bike for commuting, especially a folding one. Thankfully NCM have built this e-bike with commuters in mind and every whim has been catered for. The excellent Selle Royal gel saddle will offer enough comfort for most people, and the overall design of the bike allows for a very relaxed riding position. The handlebar grips are ergonomically designed and importantly there is a small suspension fork at the front, that will help smooth out the lumps and bumps in the road, and even facilitate some light trail riding – this really is a very versatile little bike!
The 36v 250w geared rear hub motor is not only incredibly durable, but also provides the rider with excellent levels of power when needed. The compact electric motor is fitted discreetly into the 20″ rear wheel, so as not to interfere with the folding process.
A 36v 14ah Lithium battery pack fits conveniently behind the seat. Again, this design is perfect for bikes of this type, and doesn’t interfere when folding. It is unusual to find such a powerful battery on a folding electric bike at this price point. With a total energy capacity of 504Wh you can achieve a range of 25 miles based on the 20Wh per mile average power consumption figure. If you are frugal with your power usage, NCM declared a range of up to 60 miles is achievable in ECO mode. At E-ridez we think that a realistic range to expect would be in the region of 30-40 miles.
The battery also comes with a handy USB charging port for mobile devices.
