5 Advantages of Folding eBikes

One of the best things about Lectric eBikes is that they provide foldable, affordable fun. How does the foldability aspect play into the overall benefits of electric bikes, though? There are countless advantages to folding eBikes, and we're here to tell you why foldable is the way to go! 

From commuters to apartment dwellers to everyone in between - folding eBikes are the best and most cost-effective way to get around efficiently, all while keeping the environment healthy. The advantages to having a folding eBike are endless, but here are the top 5 we think every rider should know! 


Foldable Electric Bikes are More Accessible

Having a folding eBike is convenient for many different lifestyles, but especially those who are always on the go, or tight on space. Individuals living in apartments and townhomes simply have less space than others to store bulky items such as a bicycle. With a folding eBike, they can fold this space-taker in half at the frame, as well as the handlebars! This allows for easy storage under desks, in closets, on balconies, and more. 

Prefer to take your riding adventures outside of your local area? Folding eBikes make that easy! Folded dimensions as small as 36L x 16W x 26H” make throwing your eBike in the back of your car a breeze. They're the perfect size to store in the backseat or trunk of most cars.  


Foldable Electric Bikes are More Secure

A prominent concern surrounding electric bikes and commuting is bike theft. It seems that everyone has heard a story from someone they know getting their bike stolen while they're in their office working, at a cafe, or hitting the gym.

With a folding eBike, you can take your ride inside with you so that it never has to leave your sight! Simply fold up your eBike and take it inside with you! (Warning: People passing by may ask about your awesome ride and where they can get one for themselves... We're simply speaking from experience. 😉)


Foldable Electric Bikes are Low Maintenance

Not only do you not have to worry about losing your bike to theft, but folding eBikes also provide the luxury of indoor storage to prevent damage from the outdoors.

Live in a place with rainy or dusty weather most of the time? Store your eBike inside to prevent rust and grime buildup on your beloved folding eBike!

A common concern with electric bikes is the damage that extremely cold or extremely hot weather can have on components such as the battery, controller, and display. Foldable electric bikes allow for hassle-free indoor storage that will surely keep your eBike in tip-top shape while not in use. 


Transportation is Easier with Foldable Electric Bikes

Commuting in a city typically means using multiple modes of transportation. And after utilizing multiple modes of transportation, a long walk is usually involved to get to your final destination.

With a folding eBike, you can hop on a subway or bus with your eBike by your side, and then unfold and ride to get to the office or store with ease! 


Folding eBikes Promote a Healthy Lifestyle

Foldable eBikes are an easy way for people of all ages to get exercise and access a breath of fresh air that they may not otherwise seek out. For example, it can sometimes be hard to fit in a workout before or after the workday, but using a foldable electric bike to get to the office provides a built-in activity with all of the security and advantages found above! 

Lastly, as people age, they're often on the hunt for any means to "feel like a kid again." Foldable eBikes make finding that feeling easy. All of the convenience factors mentioned above paired with the extra confidence the electric motor provides make for the best carefree fun out there.
