As the conventional fuel are getting expensive and thus the relative’s transportation as well. Therefore, mankind is adopting the new transportation trends that are smart and Eco-friendly as well. Besides that the urbanization in metropolitan is causing a headache for the frequent city traveler as well. Thus, people are using alternative means of traveling and e-bikes are popular phenomena these days. There are many companies who are promising with best-bikes but Flit-16 folding e-bike is the smart choice.
Earlier this year, General Motors launched its first folding e-bikes. And now former Jaguar Land Rover engineer Dave Henderson has unveiled the Flit-16.
Flit-16 Folding e-Bike
The Flit-16 folding e-bike has been 3 years in development and already undergone testing by hundreds of riders and industry experts.
“Our vision was to make an electric folding bike that feels great to ride, whilst keeping the convenience of a compact commuter bike,” said officials. “Using my background as an automotive engineer, I focused on the e-bike’s geometry to give a comfortable and responsive ride, perfect for city journeys.”
Talking about the bike, the FLIT-16 offers both a riding and folding experience that are broadly on par with the market leader. On the other hand, talking about its aspect, its rear light does double duty. It performs as a brake light and has been integrated into the e-bike’s heat-treated 6000 series aluminum alloy frame as well. That and the front fixed light can both controlled using the handlebar display, which also shows battery level, pedal-assist mode and ride data.
Besides that the e-bike is with USB charging port for topping up mobile devices too, and is Bluetooth compatible. The Flit-16’s folding mechanism goes from ride-ready to fold down for transport in 10 seconds – around the same time as the latest Go-cycle. In folded mode it measures 728 mm long and 632 mm high (28.6 x 24.8 in), and users can roll it along on its wheels.
While, coming to the power of electric motor, there’s a 250 WH Li-Ion battery pack. It is built into the frame that should be good for around 30 miles (50 km) per charge. And the 220 W Bafang rear hub motor assists the leg-pumping efforts of the rider up to 15.5 mph (25 km/h). Other than this, this e-bike offers five levels of assistance as well.
