Summary:

  • A compact, fat tire electric bike that folds to save space, the suspension fork and larger 4-inch wide tires add comfort and allow it to ride on soft sand and snow if you lower the tire pressure, or you can lockout the fork and raise pressure for efficiency on pavement
  • Only available in one frame size for now, but the handlebar height is adjustable along with the saddle so it can actually fit a wide range of body types, the stand-over height is relatively low and the folding joint is narrow, you get two color choices (black or white) with orange accents
  • Large 160 mm disc brake rotors provide excellent stopping power and control, the 350 watt fatbike-specific geared hub motor is zippy and powerful, both systems benefit from a mechanical advantage because of the smaller diameter 20″ wheel size
  • Some basic parts were chosen to keep the price down including a 6/7-speed Shimano Tourney derailleur with large thumb shifter, non-locking grips, a plastic chain guide, mechanical brakes vs. hydraulic, and stand-alone rear light, but the folding pedals, adjustable kickstand, and integrated headlight are all great

Pros:

  • Fat 4-inch wide tires, a 60 mm spring suspension fork, adjustable-height steering tube, and shortened stem work together to provide more comfort, you can achieve an upright body position that will fit a range of rider body types and the Velo Plush saddle and ergonomic grips feel nice
  • Great aesthetics, the new hydroformed Aluminum alloy frame has an angled top tube for lower stand over height, extra plating gussets where it meets the seat tube and steering tube, and a flattened section behind the seat tube where the battery mounts which provides a sturdier surface
  • Safety is a big consideration for me as a cyclist who rides in the city occasionally (or in new unfamiliar locations, since this is a folding portable model), so I love that this model has been including lights and that the new headlight is extra bright and aimable, the folding pedals also have nice reflectors
  • I love the sturdy Wellgo platform pedals they chose here, many other folding pedals are plastic and offer less surface area and rigidity, the plastic chain guide and steel derailleur guard also keep it running smoothly and protected when folding and unfolding, the chain shouldn’t drop off and you’ll be less likely to get a snag or bend in the derailleur cable and motor power cable
  • The new battery design is awesome, it’s slimmer, can be locked to the frame in an off position to prevent tampering with the display, can be charged on or off the bike, is using energy dense Samsung 35E cells that take up less space and weigh less, and it’s only $499 to replace because the controller unit is separate
  • This folding fat bike has tons of optional accessories that look great and provide massive utility such as wide plastic fenders, reflective pannier bags that fit onto the rear rack, a front platform rack and basket, a phone mount, and a suspension seat post upgrade
  • The display is large and easy to read, it angles slightly to help you reduce glare, and I love that it has a standard sized USB port on the bottom so you can maintain a phone or other portable electronics as you ride, interacting with the display while riding is easy and pretty safe because the button pad is mounted within reach of the left grip
  • This model has upgraded to a high-resolution 12-magnet cadence sensors for all of their second generation models and this makes starting and stopping more predictable, I love that they also included motor inhibitors on both brake levers and that you can disable the throttle with the on/off toggle button near the right grip, I always turn the bike completely off before hopping on or off and folding just to be safe
  • The kickstand is adjustable, has a wide platform at the bottom to keep it from sinking in to soft terrain, and it works pretty well if you’re loading the bike with gear, I love that the front rack is frame-mounted so it won’t interfere with steering or tip the bike sideways when parked like fork mounted racks
  • Both wheels are built with thicker 12 gauge spokes for increased durability and weight capacity on the bike, the official max weight rating is 275 pounds (~125 kilograms) which is outstanding for a folding model
  • The folding points at the steering tube and mid-frame have a two-step lock to ensure that there are no accidental unfolding situations while riding
  • The geared hub motor is zippy and powerful, it gets a big mechanical advantage because of the smaller 20″ wheels and can produce more torque,so the geared motor doesn’t offer regeneration and it does produce some more noise, but it’s more capable at low speeds and can power through snow and soft sand if you bring down the tire PSI to the 5-10 range
  • The rear rack is bolt-on but I like that they color matched it and that it stays out of the way so you can really lower the saddle height if you want and still have a trunk bag!
