A new generation of electric folding bikes will soon come onto the market – the FIIDO D11. Will the electric bike be available for less than $ 500 in 2020? Will it arrive in time to be an alternative to the car? Currently, the new model in China is published on the official FIIDO website. But with multinational electronics giant Xiaomi offering the innovative e-bike, you can bet it will be available everywhere soon.
A powerful electric folding bike
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has got life out of hand. Most people around the world have experienced various economic and logistical problems since the coronavirus outbreak. In addition, it has become quite difficult to travel alone without worrying about safety. However, FIIDO has brought the foldable D11 e-bike for those people who frequently travel around the city to earn a living or have to drive there for occasional and usual tasks. The innovatively developed electric folding bike can also be used as a normal bike to simply stay healthy and fit in difficult times.
The crowd financing platform Indiegogo already presented the electric folding bike worldwide this month. The new practical city bike is well designed and extremely efficient to provide an engaging and intelligent riding experience. It uses environmentally friendly technology and is emission-free with a range of up to 100 km. So this provides an opportunity to redefine the urban cycling experience. The beautiful frame with a weight of only 12.9 kg offers wonderful performance and an extremely long mileage when the battery of the detachable seat tube is fully charged. It is built from aluminum alloy with simple design aesthetics and offers a great driving experience. The ergonomically designed bike is fully suitable for everyday use and offers unlimited possibilities.
Innovative design and technology
The modern minimalist design has given the FIIDO D11 the “Red Dot Award”. When the 36 V 11.6 Ah battery, which is hidden in the bicycle frame, is fully charged, it can cover a distance of 100 km. It is perfectly designed for city cycling with the longest support for driving distances. The FIIDO D11 folding bike has a Shimano 7-speed gearbox and 3 stages in moped mode. There is an LCD screen on the handlebars that shows the charge level of the battery, the distance traveled and the speed. It is not the first e-bike “Folder” presented by FIIDO, but it is certainly the most interesting in terms of value for money.
The aluminum alloy frame, for example, is equipped like a mountain bike with real suspension with shock absorbers on the rear swing arm. In addition, this ensures more comfort even on medium to long distances on bumpy roads, such as those often found in the historic city centers of Italy. The electric folding bike can then be folded into three positions (handlebars, frame and pedals) in a compact configuration made possible by magnetic clips. This enables easy transport or storage in the trunk of a car.
Two great advantages of the FIIDO D11 are the ability to fold it in half, which means that it does not take up much space, and the great mileage of up to 100 km on just one charge. The new D11 e-bike has a battery with a capacity of 10Ah. The cell is hidden in the bicycle frame. As you know, one of the most expensive parts of a bike is the battery, which is why the product is protected. For this reason, the key supplied will be used to pull out the built-in cell. You can take it with you anywhere within 5 seconds after folding. The most important technical data and advantages are summarized again here:
- The 300 W motor offers a fast speed of up to 25 km per hour.
- There are three modes: all-electric mode, bicycle mode and servo drive.
- The 10AH lithium battery enables a range of 30 to 60 km in purely electric mode and a range of 40 to 50 km in Power Assist mode.
- The adjustable seat height and handlebar height also suit different riding styles.
- The alloy element made of aluminum stands for extreme durability, whereby a maximum load of 120 kg is possible.
- The electric folding bike has efficient disc brakes on the front and rear wheels for safer braking when driving.
- It also features a bright LED headlight and taillight for extra safety at night.
- The folding makes the product perfect for easy storage and transportation.
- The e-bike is ideal for city riders, commuters, short trips, shopping and for everyday use.
So the FIIDO D11 will be an inexpensive electric bike that is slated to hit the market in June 2020. The new e-bike offers a great riding experience with an ergonomic design as well as a long service life and variable speed.
