After teasing the world with a first look at its sleek new electric folding e-bike last month, Fiido is now revealing the full specs and componentry for the bike. And the accompanying video is perhaps the most epic launch video of all time – for a folding bike.
Foldable electric bikes aren’t known for their glitz or glamor, but Fiido’s new model breaks shape with a sleek design we’ve seen so far.
Well, almost unlike anything else.
It still builds on the design of Fiido’s previous D11 folding e-bike, which grossed over $ 1 million in its pre-sale campaign last year. But now the Fiido X is following it up with several upgrades and style changes.
You can see the bike in action in the introductory video below, then read the full specifications and pricing information.
Fiido X foldable e-bike specifications
First of all, we just learned that there will actually be two versions of the bike, a Fiido X and a Fiido X Lite.
Both use batteries built into the seat post, with a larger 418 Wh battery in the Fiido X and a half-size 209 Wh battery in the Fiido X Lite.
The bike is an e-bike with pedal assistance and a torque sensor and thus offers an impressive range thanks to the efficient drive method. The Fiido X is listed with a range of 130 km (80 miles) while the Fiido X Lite has a range of 60 km (37 miles).
Both numbers are likely a bit optimistic (a trend in almost all e-bike datasheets), but the assisted propulsion method can get more range than most people would expect from an e-bike.
The torque sensor-based pedal assistance takes the bike up to a top speed of 25 km / h (15.5 mph), which is the top speed for electric bikes in most markets. It is still unclear whether there will be a Class 1 or Class 2 version of the e-bike for the USA that could take advantage of the higher speed limits of 32 km / h in North America.
Both models have 7-speed Shimano gears, magnesium frames with hidden folding mechanisms, key code locks for the batteries, 20-inch CST tires, integrated LED lighting and gear motors at the rear.
The higher-end model will contain hydraulic disc brakes, while the lower-end model will be based on mechanical disc brakes.
The Fiido X has an MSRP of $ 1,999 but will be available for only $ 1,099 during the pre-sale period starting July 13th. The Fiido X Lite will be available for only $ 899 during pre-sale.
These are some of the lowest prices we’ve seen for torque sensor e-bikes.
For those who don’t want to wait for the latest model or are hoping to get an ebike sooner, last year’s D11 model is currently on sale for just $ 999.
