The perfect combination of human and electric power. Xiaomi QiCYCLE Electric Folding Bike is your smartest ride on two wheels. It’s a smart bike with a companion app that gives you real-time info on every ride you take.
The Xiaomi QiCycle, on the other hand, has a claimed weight of 7.8 kg for the carbon-fiber model, and 14kg for the aluminum version, a weight that could make many people change their minds about this sort of bike.
The battery mounted in the top tube of the Xiaomi QiCycle is a Panasonic 18650 2900mAH Li-ion and it is provided with a Battery Management System (BMS) which maximizes the use of the battery and doesn’t allow for the loss of energy while riding. It can be recharged in three hours and the company claims it will last for 45 km.
The motor is integrated into the front hub and it with a maximum power of 250W (36V). If you choose to ditch the motor, the bicycle can be ridden with a Shimano Nexus 3-gear drivetrain. The motor’s power is guided by a torque measurement method (TMM), which measures the torque applied to the pedal and adjusts the power requested to the motor accordingly. Speed, time, distance, calories consumed and power are also shown by the bike computer mounted on the handlebars.
The bike is equipped with a Shimano three-speed gears but this is not a fast bike. Its maximum speed is just 12.5 mph. Besides, it is not really lightweight, the whole bike weighs nearly 32 lbs although the frame is made of lightweight aluminum. After installing the companion app on your phone, you can also see more info like GPS, bike status or ride stats.
