Best Lightweight Affordable Ebikes: All Under 1,600 and 50 lbs!
It’s not surprising that ebikes are going to be heavier than traditional bikes. The added components such as the motor and battery are the two biggest factors when it comes to weight. Many bikes we see here at Ebike Escape are in the 65-75 lb range! That can be a lot of weight when trying to load it onto a bike rack! Heavier ebikes can also feel bulkier and unruly when riding, especially when you are not super comfortable on a bike.
If you want a lighter electric bike that is easier to manage, there are still ebikes that can fit the bill. Here is our list of the best lightweight and affordable ebikes!
Benefits of a lighter weight ebike
The two lightest ebikes on our list are only 33 lbs! With a lighter ebike, you will be giving up some power. Lighter-weight ebikes tend to have small batteries and/or smaller motors. They tend to be bikes designed for city riding with thinner tires and sleek appearances. Many of these bikes don’t include extras such as fenders or kickstands as a way to minimize weight.
As technology improves we will see lighter and lighter ebikes. Currently, some of the lightest ebikes are sub 30 lbs! That is even lighter than many traditional bikes but they will come with a price to match! Our review today will cover affordable and lightweight ebikes. If weight is more critical than price consider this list.
Without further ado, let’s get started with the best lightweight, but affordable electric bikes!
Ride1Up Roadster V2 at 33lbs: Tied for lightest ebike on our list
Let’s start with one of the lightest weight bikes of our lineup, Ride1Up’s Roadster V2 at only 33 lbs! It has a clean and simple design with a concealed battery. It is a quiet bike and it would be easy to mistake this ebike for a traditional bike. The Roadster V2 is priced at 1,095.
The frame comes in two sizes, 52 cm (for riders 5’3″-5’8″) and 58 cm (for riders 5’8″-6’3″). The weight capacity for the Ride1Up Roadster V2 is 300 lbs. Color options are pretty conservative and include burgundy, black, gray and silver.
There is a 350-watt nominal motor that peaks at 500 watts. This is a pretty average motor for a lightweight affordable ebike. The battery is a 36V, 7Ah battery with an advertised range of 20-30 miles. It has a compact LCD screen and 5 levels of pedal assist but no throttle. This is a class 3 ebike with a top speed of 24 mph with pedal assist.
The Roadster V2 is a single-speed with a Toptrans belt drive, it features Tektro R315 Dual Pivot rim brakes. Generally, it comes with Kenda Kwest 700cx28 road tires however there is an option for a gravel bike version. The gravel version of the V2 comes with larger tires and disc brakes for 1,245. The bigger tires will provide a bit more stability on looser surfaces and more confidence while stopping in any weather conditions. The Roadster V2 gravel is unquestionably the most affordable gravel ebike on the market. This bike is clean, simple, and LIGHT.
Ride1Up Core-5 at 49lbs: Powerful motor and large battery
In addition to the Roadster V2, Ride1Up has the Core-5 as another lightweight bike. This ebike is only 100 more than the Roadster V2, coming in at 1,195. It is offered in both a high step and step-through frame, both of which weigh in at 49 lbs.
For the extra 16 lbs, you get a significantly bigger motor at 750 watts and a bigger 48V, 10.4 Ah battery. This is both the biggest battery and the biggest motor on our list. The range is claimed to be 25-45 miles per charge, a big upgrade compared to the Roadster. Compared to the Roadster V2, which is a single-speed and no throttle, the Core-5 has a 7-speed Shimano shifter and derailleur and a thumb throttle. With a max speed of 28 mph with pedal assist and 20 mph with the throttle, the Core-5 comes shipped as a class 3 ebike. It has 5 pedal assist levels with a cadence sensor.
The step-through frame should fit riders from 5′ up to 6’1″ while the high-step fits riders from 5’6″ to 6’4″. The color options for the Core-5 include azure blue (shown above), mint, and midnight grey. Both lightweight Ride1Up bikes sport a 300 lbs payload capacity.
The Core-5 has Tektro mechanical brakes paired with 160 mm rotors. The tires are Kenda Kwick Seven 5 27.5″ x 2.2″ which are perfect for riding on pavement and perhaps even some hard packed gravel. Another perk you get for the extra 16 lbs compared to the Roadster V2, is a bright headlight that runs off the main battery. This bike does a great job of maximizing affordability while maintaining quality on the parts that matter. This bike does have a kickstand, but does not come with fenders. Fenders and a rear rack are available for purchase directly from Ride1Up.
Propella Mini at 33 lbs: Small wheels and only 799!
Propella has a host of ebikes that fall into the lightweight and affordable categories. These ebikes include their Mini, the SS, the 7S, and the 9S PRO! This is a great company for this type of bike!
The lightest ebike Propella offers is the Mini. It is currently only 799! That makes it one of the most affordable ebikes on this list as well as tied for the lightest! It has a high-step traditional appearing frame. It is ideal for riders between 5’2″ and 5’10” and the stand-over height is 22″. The bike has smaller tires than a typical bike, they are only 20″ x 1.75″. This makes the bike, small and nimble. It is perfect to fit into small living spaces or vehicles. The small wheels also mean this bike has increased climbing power and can handle hills with up to a 10% incline.
This super light, single-speed ebike comes with a 250-watt Bafang hub motor with a peak output of 400 watts. It includes a 36V 7Ah battery, made with Samsung cells. The company advertises a 20-35 mile range with pedal assist. There is an option to buy an extra battery if you need more range on any of the Propella bikes. This is a class 1 ebike with a top speed of 18 mph and no throttle. There are 5 levels of pedal assist available and it uses a cadence sensor. The Propella Mini has Shimano mechanical disc brakes. It has a matte black frame and blue rims. For a light ebike currently selling for less than 800, this is tough to beat!
The Propella SS comes in just a couple of pounds heavier than the mini at 35 lbs and comes in at just 999. Just like the Mini, it is a high-step, single-speed, class 1 ebike. It has the same battery and motor, but a slightly longer range of 20-40 miles. It also has the same LCD and Shimano mechanical disc brakes.
The main thing that differentiates the SS from the Mini is the tires and wheels. While the Mini has 20″ x 1.75″ tires which are small and nimble, the SS has 700 c X 35 wheels giving it a more traditional look. The standover height is about an inch higher at 23″ and the rider height range is a little taller going from 5’4″-6’2″.
Gearing between the SS and Mini is also a little different. The SS has 46T front chainring with a 16T rear freewheel, while the Mini has a 52T front chainring but the same 16T rear freewheel.
Next up on the Propella lightweight ebike lineup is the Propella 7S. The price bumps up to 1,199 and the bike comes in at 37 lbs. This increased weight on this bike comes from the upgrade from single-speed to a Shimano Altus 7-speed shifter and derailleur. This offers a lot more options to allow the rider to power up hills with a combination of pedaling and pedal assist.
Many of the other features of the 7S are similar to the Mini and SS models. It has the same battery, motor, LCD display, and brakes. Like the other Propella ebikes, the 7S is a class 1 ebike. The 7S has same 46T front chainring as the SS as well as the same standover height and ideal rider height.
Check out our full review here.
Propella 9S PRO
The final Propella bike is the Propella 9S PRO coming in at 41 lbs and selling for 1,599. There are a ton of upgrades on the 9S compared to the other Propella ebikes. It has a larger Bafang rear hub motor at 350-watts with a peak of 500w. The battery is still 36V but bumps up to 10Ah. Even with a more powerful motor and bigger battery, this bike remains a class 1 ebike. As the name insinuates, the 9S is a 9-speed ebike and features a Shimano drivetrain.
The frame is also a high step with a slightly higher standover height of 23.6″. It is meant for slightly taller riders with an ideal height range of 5’5″-6’2″. The brakes get upgraded from the mechanical brakes on lighter models to hydraulic disc brakes with 160 mm rotors. With this ebike you get bigger 27.5″ x 2″ tires which should be able to handle some gravel and light off-road riding. This bike is bigger and more robust than the other Propella ebikes but still weighs in well under 50 lbs.
Lectric XP Lite at 49 lbs-A folding ebike for only 799!
Moving on from Propella, next we have a Lectric ebike. Lectric is a well-loved company and is known to have a great mix of quality and affordability. Their XP Lite is no exception. Along with the Propella Mini, the XP Lite shares the title for the most affordable lightweight bike on the Ebike Escape list coming in at only 799! Like all Lectric bikes, the XP Lite is a folding bike that ships fully assembled. The frame only comes in one size but fits a huge range of rider heights from 4’8″ to 6’2″. While the height range is generous, the weight capacity is only 250 lbs which could be limiting for some riders. Color options include classic black, arctic white, sandstorm, and electric blue. There is no front suspension on the XP lite, but you could easily add a suspension seat post for more comfort.
The motor is a 300-watt nominal and peaks at 720 watts. The battery is 48V, 7.8Ah (374.4-watt hours) and you can buy a second battery to have on hand if needed. The range on a single battery is 40 miles in pedal assist 1 and 15 miles in throttle only. The XP Lite is a single-speed ebike with 0-5 levels of pedal assist and has a cadence sensor. It has the same LCD display as the rest of the bikes on Lectric’s lineup. The XP Lite is a class 2 ebike with a top speed of 20 mph with pedal assist or throttle.
This bike has mechanical disc brakes with 160 mm rotors. The tires are 20′ x 2.4″ and have a tread pattern capable of handling some light off-road riding. It includes integrated front and tail lights, which aren’t always a given in such an affordable and light ebike.
This is a great bike for its price, weight, and size. It comes fully assembled and is easy to fold up and pack away for travel. It can handle some light hills, but due to the smaller battery and motor, it is not recommended to be trying to climb mountains with this bike.
Aventon Soltera at 41-43lbs with a mid-step option and bright frame colors
The Aventon Soltera gives you the option of a single-speed at 41 lbs and 1,199 or the 7-speed at 43 lbs and 1,299. It is a lightweight and agile bike. You have plenty of choice for size and color allowing for a wide range of rider heights and color preferences. They offer a high-step and what they call a step-through though I would consider it more of a mid-step. The smallest frame Aventon offers is the mid-step small/medium, ideal for riders as short as 4’11. And the largest frame offered is the high-step Large, which is ideal for riders up to 6’4″. The weight capacity of the Soltera is 300 lbs. Color options vary depending on which frame and drivetrain you choose but include fun options such as seafoam green, salmon pink, moonrock grey, onyx black, azure blue, and citrine.
Regardless of the drivetrain or frame design you choose, all the Aventon Soltera bikes come with a 350-watt rear hub motor. The battery is 36 V, 9.6 Ah (338.4-watt hours), and is integrated nicely into the bottom of the frame. The estimated range in ideal conditions is 41 miles. The display is a color LCD screen with app sync functionality. This is the same display Aventon offers on their more expensive bikes. This is a class 2 ebike with a max speed of 20 mph It has both pedal assist and a throttle. You also have the option of disconnecting the throttle to make this a class 1 ebike.
The brakes on the 7-speed drivetrain model are mechanical disc brakes with 160 mm rotors. While the single-speed Soltera has Tektro Caliper rim brakes. Both versions of this bike have thin Kendra 700 c x 35 x road tires but no quick release. This bike is one of the few to include integrated front and rear lights. The rear lights are nicely integrated into the frame and illuminate when the brakes are applied. In such an affordable and light ebike this is a stand-out feature both on paper and on the road.
Aventon Pace 350 at 49 lbs with a cruiser type frame and step-through option
The Aventon Pace 350 just skirts under our weight limit coming in at 49 lbs and is priced at 1,399. This bike is similar to Aventon’s Soltera with a few notable differences. The Soltera is a more traditional road bike whereas the Pace 350 is more of an up-right cruiser-style bike. The Pace 350 is offered in both a high-step and a true step-through. Between the two different frame styles, there are various frame sizes that fit a wide range of riders from 4’11” to 6’4″. Colors are mostly neutral, however they do also have plum purple.
The Aventon Pace 350 has a larger battery than the Soltera coming in at 36V and 11.6Ah battery (410.4-watt hours). The tires on the Pace are larger at 27.5″ x 2.2″. Other features including the display, pedal assist, throttle, max speed, brakes, and lights are similar to the Soltera.
Vvolt Alpha at 44-46 lbs and fits a huge range of rider heights
Our final ebike to make the list is the Vvolt Alpha and Alpha S (the step-through version) currently selling at 1,399.
The variance in weight is due to differences in frame size. Both the Alpha and the Alpha S come in a S/M and L/XL frames, covering an ideal rider height range from 4’9″ to 6’4″. This is the shortest rider height on this list! Standover height on the S/M frame on the Alpha S is only 27″ and is up to 32″ on the larger L/XL for the Alpha. The colors are pretty basic and come in chalk white and slate.
The Vvolt Alpha and Alpha S feature a 350-watt rear hub motor with a 375-watt hour battery. The estimated range on this class 1 ebike is 20-40 miles per charge in ideal conditions. It has the normal 5 levels of pedal assist plus a walk mode. The LCD display offers Bluetooth pairing and app functionality.
The Vvolt is a single-speed bike with hydraulic disc brakes and 160 mm rotors. One unique feature of the Vvolt ebikes is a drive belt rather than a chain. The belt is a Gates CDN belt, which should last for thousands of miles and is a lower maintenance alternative to a bike chain. It can be especially helpful if you are riding in areas with lots of sand or debris.
There are some great options out there for affordable lightweight ebikes! The two lightest bikes on our lineup are the Ride1Up Roadster V2 and the Propella Mini both coming in at 33 lbs. The Roadster is a class 3 with a throttle while the Mini is a class 1. Aside from sharing the title for the lightest ebike on our list, the Mini also ties in for the most affordable ebike currently listed for only 799. The Lectric XP Lite is the other ebike coming in at only 799, what a deal! The Lectric XP Lite is the only folding bike on today’s lineup.
As far as the company with the most options in this category, Propella really leads the pack with 4 options, the Mini, the SS, the 7S, and the 9S PRO. The SS has larger tires than the Mini though both are single speeds. The 7S is a 7-speed, and the 9S is 9 speeds. The 9S PRO also has a bigger motor, battery, and tires than the rest of the Propella ebikes. Propella batteries also charge fast-under 3 hours!
If you are looking for power, the Ride1Up Core-5 has not only the biggest motor on the list by far, 750 watts, but it also has the biggest battery with total watt-hours at just under 500.
For rider height range, the Vvolt Alpha and Alpha S really shine with a huge rider height range going from 4’9″ all the way up to 6’4″. It is also the only bike on the lineup offering a drive belt instead of a chain. The frames are offered in high-step or step-through options.
Aventon also offers a great height range on both the Soltera and the Pace 350 fitting riders from 4’11” to 6’4″. The main difference between the Soltera and the Pace 350 is that the Soltera is a more traditional road bike style with a more forward riding position and thin tires. The Pace 350 is a cruiser style with a more upright position and wider tires. Both the Soltera and Pace350 come in high-step options with the Soltera offering a mid-step and the Pace 350 offering a step-through.

Best Folding Electric Bikes of 2023: Elevate Your Urban Commutes
E-bikes of all types have had a huge growth in popularity and improvement in technology in the past few years. Folding bikes, including folding electric bikes, have also seen a jump in use.
This is because they are a convenient mode of transport for commuters or cyclists who need to transport and store their bicycles more easily.
With folding electric bicycles, you have the power to take on longer commutes without breaking a sweat, reliably bring your bike on any public transit, and fold it up easily to store it at the office or in your home.
The best folding electric bike will fold quickly and securely, be relatively lightweight, be comfortable to ride, and come fully equipped for urban commuting. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the differences we see between models.
Quick Folding Electric Bikes Buying Guide
Tire width: Fat vs Standard
Folding fat bikes and regular folding e-Bikes are both popular choices with their own distinct advantages. The reason that fat-tire folding e-Bikes are so popular is that these bikes are the most versatile and comfortable.
A folding fat-tire electric bike has the ability to go on or off-road, maintains excellent traction and control in all terrains and weather conditions, and is super-comfy because the large tires absorb almost all of the road vibrations.
Non-electric folding bike vs a conventional folding bike
Whether you choose electric or not depends on your needs and capabilities as a cyclist.
A motor and battery will allow you to commute without effort, especially if there’s a throttle. This is an excellent choice for long or difficult commutes. E-bikes also allow you to easily transport cargo such as a loaded pannier rack without noticing the extra weight.
Folding electric bikes for adults are great for those with injuries or who find it difficult to ride regularly and want to be able to without limitations.
Belt vs chain folding e-Bikes
A belt-drive electric folding bike for adults is a premium system because it requires virtually no maintenance, lasts a long time, doesn’t require grease, and is silent when running compared to a chain drive.
Suspension vs rigid
The type of fork that comes on your folding e-bike greatly affects the comfort when riding on rough terrain. A suspension fork will absorb more shocks and bumps, allowing you to comfortably ride off-road without experiencing fatigue from vibrations.
Additionally, because you have a motor for power, the loss of performance and speed from suspension is almost canceled out.
Internal gearing vs derailleur
Internal hub gearing is common on e-bikes because it requires very little maintenance compared to a derailleur. It has less exposed parts which reduces wear and tear.
These types of hubs usually can’t get as wide a gear range as a derailleur, but this is pretty much irrelevant as you are powered mostly by the motor on an e-bike.

What to think of full suspension folding electric bikes?
Full suspension on a folding e-bike is a little excessive. In general, this type of bike is uses for urban riding, commuting, or light trail rides. To do this well, all you need is fat tires and/or front fork suspension to absorb the bumps you encounter.
Additionally, a folding e-bike usually won’t have the correct geometry to tackle tough mountain descents and singletrack.
What to think of cheap folding electric bikes?
For cyclists who need a bike for light usage and short trips, without the need to go off-road or carry heavy cargo, a cheap folding e-bike should be able to meet those needs.
For heavier usage or more difficult riding conditions like off-roading or tough gradients, a cheap e-bike might not work effectively or be durable enough.
Electric Bike Classifications
Most folding fat tire electric bikes are Class 1, which means the pedal assistance works up to 20mph. However, there are also Class 2 and 3. They are categorized as follows:
- Class 1: Top speed 20mph
- Class 2: Top speed 20mph Throttle 20mph
- Class 3: Top speed 28mph Throttle 20mph
Hub drive vs mid-drive
Hub drive motors are the cheapest type. They are heavier and are generally found in the rear wheel axle. They power the rear wheel independently of the drivetrain and thus are not as efficient, especially in their power delivery or smoothness.
Mid-drive motors are the premium choice. They are more expensive, lighter, and are found in between the pedals. This location improves the center of gravity. These motors work by powering the drivetrain, delivering a smooth and efficient power output.
Spoke vs cast wheels on a folding bike
Spoke wheels are the premium option. They are more durable and perform better than cast wheels. Cast wheels are found on cheaper models. They require less maintenance and are lightweight, but also less durable.

Third Place! Folding E-Bike with Longest Range
MSRP: 1,400 Wheels: 20″ x 4″ Features: Fenders, a kickstand, lights, 750W motor, 615Wh battery, disc brakes, front suspension
Engwe EP-2 Pro is a solid choice both for urban commuters and off-roading enthusiasts.
This folding electric bike comes with 20 x 4″ wheels and tires that don’t provide the most stability on trails, but definitely don’t lack grip due to their width. Therefore, they’re best suited for bumpy city streets, but you can also take them onto light trails, gravel, and dirt roads.
We gave Engwe EP-2 Pro the podium place because it packs decent components in a good-looking package that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
When it comes to electronics, Engwe equipped EP-2 Pro with a 750W rear hub motor and a respectable 615 Wh battery. This setup translates to a 28 MPH top speed and a 50 mile maximum range. Ride it in one of the five PAS levels or use the throttle to get maximum power straight away.

Folding the bike is easy as well, you just need to fold the frame in half and collapse the handlebars, which doesn’t take more than 20 seconds. After that, you can store or transport EP-2 Pro without any issues.
Affordable Fat-Tire Foldable E-Bike with Suspension
MSRP: 1,499 Wheels: 20″ x 4″ Features: Wide tires, easy folding mechanism, disc brakes, powerful motor, wide and thin display, suspension
Aventon Sinch is one of the most affordable choices on our list. But don’t let that fool you, this folding e-bike hides some nice surprises that you’ll like when you take it for a ride.
Aventon Sinch is propelled by a 500W rear hub motor that’s powered by a huge 672Wh battery. You can control these electronics with a big backlit LCD display that resembles a smartphone in design and size.
This is a Class 2 e-bike with pedal-assistance, throttle, and a 20 MPH maximum assisted speed. It combines 4″ tires with a suspension fork to let you make off-road detours without second thoughts.
You also get a 7-speed Shimano drivetrain and mechanical disc brakes, so Sinch is ready to ride up steep hills and descend even steeper hills.
This bike offers five levels of assist, plus a throttle. If you use them smartly, you can get up to 40 miles of range out of the battery.
Though Aventon Sinch folds quickly and completely, the folded dimensions are not super compact because of the wide 4″ wheels—41″ L / 23″ W / 31″ H. Plus, the bike is not ultra-light at 68 lbs.
However, if you’re fine with the higher weight and larger dimensions, Sinch will save you money and do all the things more expensive folding e-bikes do.

What Should I Look For in a Folding Electric Bike?
You might have experience with buying bicycles, but purchasing a folding electric bike is a bit more challenging. In addition to all the standard features you need to consider, you should also think about the electric components and the folding mechanism.
The folded dimensions should be small enough to fit your car’s trunk or the storage space in your apartment. Most models nowadays have easy-to-use folding mechanisms, so that shouldn’t be an issue.
A good folding electric bike should be compact, light, practical, and easy to fold.
Next, you should think about the motor and the battery. If you live somewhere hilly or windy, you should get a more powerful motor and a bigger battery. Also, choose between a hub and a mid-drive motor. The former is cheaper, but the latter is more stable because of better weight distribution.
If it often rains in your area, consider better-quality hydraulic disc brakes as well.
We’d also recommend paying attention to the wheels and tires. Big wheels are more stable, but they increase the bike’s folded dimensions. If you plan to ride off-road, choose a folding fat-tire electric bike, such as RadMini or Aventon Sinch.
In the end, look for a bike that you will find practical to use every day and that will thus significantly improve the quality of your life.
Looking for different kinds of electric bikes? Take a look at our list of best electric bikes.
What to Keep in Mind About Motors?
For practical purposes, most folding e-bikes come with hub motors. However, there are some exceptions, including a few models on our list, that have mid-drive motors.
The reason why hub motors are the go-to choice for electric mini bikes compared to other types is the lack of space. Folding electric bicycles are small, compact, and need to remain that way to fold small. If you add a mid-drive motor, folding will not be impossible, but it takes more engineering to develop an efficient folding mechanism.
Hub motors can be placed in the front or in the rear wheel. But in most cases, you’ll see hub motors in the rear wheel, as this is a much better solution.
Front-wheel hub motors are cheaper to install, but they have a few disadvantages. Namely, they affect the bike’s handling and don’t offer as much traction.
When riding a bike, most of the rider’s weight is on the rear wheel, so the tire has plenty of grip and won’t skid if you apply a lot of torque. On the other hand, the front wheel might spin out if the motor is too powerful and there’s not enough weight keeping the tire in contact with the ground.
Of all the available options, mid-drive motors are usually the most powerful and offer the best riding experience. They provide assistance directly through the pedals, so you have a good feel of how much of your own power you need to apply.
But in addition to the motor placement, you also need to think about power—watts and torque.
Watts—Is There Such a Thing as Enough?
If we assume that Watts=Power is correct, we can conclude that the more Watts your foldable electric bike has, the better. But that’s not completely true for a folding electric bike. Due to smaller wheels, you don’t need that much power to feel like you’re getting somewhere. Too much power can even be dangerous as the small-diameter wheels are not as stable as larger ones.
The majority of bikes on our list have either 250W or 750W motors, but there are a few 500W models as well. The wattage depends on the amount of assistance you require, but it also depends on your country’s e-bike laws. For example, in the UK, e-bikes are allowed to have 250W; in the EU, e-bikes can have up to 500W motors; in the US, e-bikes are limited to 750W.
But wattage is not the only metric you should be worried about. You should also consider the torque. A 500W motor with 40Nm or 80Nm of torque is not the same. torque means that the motor will have more immediate power, climb better, and offer faster acceleration.
Keep in mind that more Watts and more torque does not translate to a higher maximum assisted speed. Most folding e-bikes are Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes and are thus limited to between 15–20 MPH. The only exception is Class 3 e-bikes or speed-pedelecs, which can go up to 28 MPH. But these are rare in the folding world.
As a rule of thumb, if you are a heavier individual or you live somewhere hilly, you should look for a motor with more power. A 250W motor with little torque might struggle to pull you up a steep hill.
Which Wheel Size Is the Best?
Wheel size is one of the main considerations when choosing the best folding electric bike for you. The smaller the wheel, the more compact the bike will be when folded. However, small wheels come with some limitations, especially when it comes to the terrain they can conquer.
Most electric mini bikes have 20″ wheels, including the models on our list. This wheel size offers a good compromise between practicality, stability, and rolling efficiency.
If you want, you can go even smaller and choose 16″ wheels, but keep in mind that you’re limiting yourself to the choice of terrain you can ride on. Such small wheels won’t feel stable on pretty much anything but completely smooth city streets. Also, they don’t roll over bumps and rocks as easily, so comfort is affected as well.
Small wheels mean that you will have to pedal a bit more to reach a certain speed. But that is not a big problem considering you’ll be getting assistance from the motor.
Those who don’t want to compromise on speed and pedaling efficiency can choose a folding bike with full-size, 700C wheels. But keep in mind that such bikes don’t fold down as small as models with smaller wheels. Thus, storage and mobility become bigger challenges.
To sum, if you’re uncertain, go for 20″ wheels. They’re the gold standard when it comes to folding electric bicycles, as they combine the best of both worlds.

Why Did We Select These Foldable Electric Bikes?
To put it in simple terms, we chose to include these bikes on our list because they provide the most value for the money.
We’ve thoroughly analyzed each of the bikes you see below and compared them to dozens of other choices to find the best buys.
While doing our research and compiling the list, we focused on the most important features, such as power, range, folded size, build quality, weight, and appearance.
The result is a list of the seven best folding electric bikes that should fit the needs of most types of cyclists out there.
Check out some of the most frequently asked questions about folding electric bikes below.
What is the best folding electric bike?
The best folding electric bike is the one that meets your needs the best. If you need a model with fat tires, Rad Power RadMini is a good choice. If you want the lightest and the smallest folding e-bike, Brompton Electric is the logical choice. When choosing, make sure to consider their features and your needs.
What is the lightest folding electric bike?
Brompton Electric is one of the lightest folding electric bikes on the market. With the battery included, the 2-speed model weighs just 36.6 lbs. Without the battery, Brompton Electric weighs just 30 lbs. The 6-speed model is approximately 2 lbs. heavier, which is still very light.
Are folding e-bikes fast?
Most folding e-bikes are Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes, which means their maximum assisted speed is 20 mph. You can go faster than that by pedaling on your own, but electric mini bikes are not as fast as regular bikes due to small-diameter wheels. Still, they are far from slow and you can easily achieve a ~17 mph average speed.
Are folding e-bike worth it?
If you live in a big city or in a small house or apartment, a folding electric bike is an excellent choice. These are small bicycles that can squeeze through tight spaces, you can carry them on trains and buses, and you can easily store them in a corner of your home.
How do I choose an electric folding bike?
When choosing the best electric folding bike, you need to consider your needs and priorities. Consider how much power and range you need from the electric system, how tiny you want the folding bike to be, and whether or not you need any accessories.
How to fold an electric bike?
Folding an electric bike is a simple process, usually taking just a few seconds. However, different manufacturers have different designs and guidelines, so it’s better to see the manufacturer’s info first.
In general, folding bikes fold down from the frame, handlebars, and sometimes even the rear wheel. Pedals usually fold down too, and saddles can go down to make the bundle more compact.
However, as we said, manufacturers have a set of guidelines for folding down their bikes, so checking them should be the first step.
Can I take my folding electric bike on a plane?
Electric bikes are generally not allowed on planes because of the batteries. However, if the battery is removed, the bike is safe to be taken on a plane.
What are the disadvantages of folding bikes?
While folding bikes are a great option for commuters, they still come with some downsides. The most prominent being the weight of the bike and the weight limit. Smaller frames can usually not hold that much weight, and to turn things around, heavier electric folding bikes are heavier to carry around.
Another possible downside is control. While smaller wheels come in handy in most situations, they can be harder to control at times. Paired with narrow handlebars, it can be a struggle at times.
When it comes to urban and multi-modal commuting, nothing beats a folding electric bike. They are easy to use, store, or carry around. Plus, the electric motor enables you to ride faster and go further, even if you haven’t ridden a bike in years.
However, choosing the right folding e-bike can be a daunting task for laymen, which is why we’ve created this guide. We comprised our list by including high-quality, tried, and true choices, so you won’t make a mistake whichever you choose.

What to Measure
Your “bike inseam”.- or inside leg length.- is the distance between your body where it sits on your bike saddle and the ground. This will typically be an inch or two longer than the length of your trousers, but you’ll want to measure to be sure. You’ll use this number on the chart to get a feel for how the different models will fit you.
How to Measure
Wearing your regular riding shoes and with your back to the wall, stand with your feet spread so there is about 7 inches between them. this is about the distance apart your feet would be when straddling a bike with your feet on
Place a hardcover book against the wall with the spine of the book facing upward. Slide the book upwards towards your groin until it is solidly against your body. This may be a bit awkward, but is way more comfortable.- and safer!- than trying to ride a bike that is too big.
If you have a buddy helping you, get them to measure from the floor to the top of the book spine while you hold the book in place. If you’re going it alone, carefully hold the book in place and measure from the ground to the top of the book spine.
