10 Best Folding Electric Bikes In 2024 – Reviews & Buyer’s Guide

Just about a year ago, my friend suggested I get a folding electric bike which I could carry with me while on public transport and then ride on it to the office. I can’t thank him enough for that “life-saving” idea! Since then I’ve rarely been late to the office. Not only is my lovely bike faster and eco-friendly, but it also allows me to enjoy enough time to hit the gym in between.

Last month I took my e-bike to Arizona for a friendly trip. I just folded and carried it in the trunk of the SUV. Off-road riding was surprisingly fun, and I didn’t expect it to go uphill that smooth. I found it pretty easy to maintain too.

However, you need to make a considerable investment since they come with high-performance motors, long-lasting batteries, robust tires, and durable frames. Also, never forget that the market is littered with so many options to choose from.

Here we’ve come up with a list of today’s best folding electric bikes along with a free comprehensive buying guide for you. Carefully go through the reviews to choose your perfect folding e-bike!

Best Folding Electric Bike Reviews

1 Tern Vektron S10

Tern Vektron S10

Why It Stands Out to Us

The Tern Vektron S10 is an excellent folding bike for urban commuting and recreational use. It has a strong frame and quality components that makes it both reliable and comfortable.

With a step-through design, adjustable Seatpost, and handlebar, the bike is easily accessible to most riders. The bike can also be stacked vertically to save storage space.

Despite the unusual look, the build quality on the Tern Vektron S10 is really impressive for an e-bike that can be folded in half in under 10 seconds!

It’s not easy to make a good folding bike, and it’s not easy to make a good e-bike. However, The long heritage of making folding bikes, and advanced research have allowed tren to come up with the best of both worlds.

Our Experience With the Tern Vektron S10

Build Quality

A sturdy and lightweight Hydroformed 7005 Aluminum Alloy frame and high-quality components provided a stable and smooth ride for our testers. Among the testers, one was my granny (5’7”) who enjoyed the ride so much that she decided she needed one for herself!

But that doesn’t mean this bike is only for seniors. That’s one of the beauties of this amazingly versatile bike. This folding electric bike features an almost universal frame.

With just two quick-release clamps in the telescopic seat post and the handlebar, Both me and my granny could share the same bike! The bike can support riders from 4’10” – 6’5” in height.

We also found that the bike was easy to assemble and ride, and it felt very solid while on the road. The 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain provided ample gear options, and the hydraulic Deore disc brakes provided enough stopping power in all types of weather.

The frame is stiff enough to provide plenty of stability, while the wheels and tires deliver a smooth ride. Similarly, components like the drivetrain, brakes, and tires are all high-quality.


The drivetrain is powered by a 400 Wh Bosch PowerPack battery, which provides plenty of range for commuting and recreational riding. The battery can be easily removed from the bike frame and charged at home or on the go.

The battery powers the motor and the digital Purion display. It is mounted below the rear cargo rack, which lowered the center of gravity, making the ride feel more solid and the battery protected.

The 4 amp smart charger charged the battery relatively quicker, from 0% to 100% in 3 hrs 20 mins. We were able to cover around 30-32 miles, spending half the charge, which isn’t bad but could be better, considering the price.


The Tern Vektron S10 is the one and only electric folding bike in North America that’s powered by a Bosch performance motor. With a 65 Nm Torque, the motor was able to reach a maximum speed of 23-25 mph on our test drive.

The bike is powered by a quiet Bosch Active Line Plus motor, which provided plenty of power and torque to get us up hills with ease. The shifting was also smooth and consistent.

There are 4 power modes available: Turbo, Sport, Tour, and Eco for different terrains. The tires were superbly shock-absorbent. The integrated speed sensor automatically detected the current speed and adjusted the level of assistance, which felt nice.

We found that this system worked very well during our test rides, as we always felt in control regardless of the terrain or conditions.


This is where the Tern Vektron S10 shines the most. With an incredibly sturdy design, this lightweight bike can be folded into half (technically, 3 parts ) in under 10 seconds!

We traveled with this bike on a boat, the trunk of our sedan, a bus, the subway, and an RV with absolutely no issues. Getting the bike into the sedan’s trunk seemed difficult, but once we removed the wheels, the rest became a cakewalk.

The bike can also be placed in an upright position, which saves a lot of space when the bike is folded. As the bike weighs under 50 lbs, it’s comparatively easier to carry and transport.

The strong frame can carry around 275 lbs of load altogether, which also seemed impressive.


  • The wide range of luggage-carrying options makes the bike perfect for commuting
  • It’s really easy and practical to stack up the bike vertically in city condos
  • The saddle is comfortable on short rides

What We Didn’t Like

  • The battery capacity should’ve been larger
  • The outside wiring provides easy access but exposes the wires to the elements
  • The paddles are subpar and don’t provide much comfort. I had to swap mine.

Who is it Great for?

The Tern Vektron S10 is one of the best touring bikes for you if you:

  • Are a senior or recreational rider
  • Want to cruise around the city
  • Need some extra power in your wheels
  • Occasionally go on short, off-road trips
  • Are looking for a regular commuting option
  • Need to transport your bike wherever you go

2 Luna Eclipse

RINKMO FEB-S1 Folding Electric Bike

Why It Stands Out to Us

If you’re looking for an e-bike with BMX aesthetics, the Luna Ecplise is the perfect e-bike for you. We fell in love with the bike at first sight. Once we rode it, it became our new favorite in no time.

The bike provided the feel of riding an MTB on the streets. With a powerful motor, large battery, and high-quality belt drive, all of our rides were smooth and fun.

The fat tires can take on any city road and even moderate trails effortlessly. The seating position was very comfortable, and the bike is easy to fold too. However, to fold it completely, you’ll need to loosen the bolts on the handlebar.

We had no issues climbing uphill or descending, even in wet weather. The charging time is a bit long, we recommend that you use a better charger.

We enjoyed the BMX feel over city streets. With a cool outlook, high-quality components, and more-than-satisfactory performance, the Luna Eclipse is a great folding electric bike for city commuting.

Our Experience With the Luna Eclipse

Build Quality

As I’ve mentioned earlier, the Luna Eclipse delivers a “BMX vibe.” Once you get close, you’ll notice that, unlike BMX bikes, the Chifa saddle in the Eclipse is meant for your pedaling comfort.

However, if you’re a big rider like me, you would want to swap the seat with a more comfortable one, but that’s just me. A friend of mine (5’4”) felt a little uncomfortable as she couldn’t flat foot on this bike.

With a durable aluminum alloy frame and 20” fat tires, the bike is designed to carry heavy loads and provide good comfort and maneuverability over a wide range of surfaces. Our one performed brilliantly over grass, concrete, and light grovels; even in the rain.

However, the small treads on the low-resistance fat tires don’t work well on mud. So be careful about taking your Eclipse off-road, especially in wet weather.


The Luna Eclipse is equipped with a powerful 48V battery to drive the motor, the drivetrain, and the display. The battery is concealed in the downtube and can be charged inside or outside the bike using the same port.

After riding the bike for about 20-22 miles on level 2 pedal assist, I still had more than 50% charge left on my bike, which is really great for my regular commute.

The 6-hour charging time was too much for me, so I opted for a faster 5A charger. Luna could’ve made it much easier by simply providing a USB charging port on the battery. Hopefully, they’ll update their future models.


This bike comes with a 500W Bafang Hub Motor, which helped me to reach a maximum speed of 25 mph. The compact motor, combined with the high-quality belt drive, provided a smooth riding experience.

Although Luna claims their motor to be noiseless, it isn’t. There is a faint noise, which increases as you increase the speed. However, the noise is lower than most other alternatives on the market.

The motor is coupled with a double-power controller. I was worried that the motor might overheat but felt relieved facing no issue over 3 months of regular commuting. The bike performed better than I expected.


In our opinion, there is room for improvement here. The point of a folding bike is to have enough portability to carry it around or store it in a short amount of space. The bike weighs around 55 lbs, making it a bit hard for carrying around.

The wide handlebars made controlling the bike easier, but it also made squeezing between cars a bit difficult. To fold the bike completely, we had to loosen the bolts in the stem, which was anything but convenient.


  • The BBSHD chainring works like a charm
  • The bike attracts a lot of attention
  • The pedals can also be folded in half
  • The assembly part was pretty straightforward

What We Didn’t Like

  • A USB port on the battery would be much appreciated
  • With a 55 lbs weight, the bike is relatively on the heavier side
  • A more powerful charger should’ve been included in the packaging

Who is it Great for

The Luna Eclipse is one of the best touring bikes for you if you:

  • Want to cruise around the city
  • A better quality drivetrain in your e-bike

3 ECOTRIC 20″ New Fat Tire Folding Electric Bike (Best Overall)

ECOTRIC 20inch New Fat Tire Folding Electric Bike

If you prefer a fat tire e-bike, ECOTRIC 20″ is exactly what you are looking for. It’s a great choice for getting around your neighborhood or for your daily commutes.

This folding ebike has a powerful 500W geared motor that’s usually seen in more expensive models. We think this feature makes it stand out from all e-bikes within its price range. It comes with a 36V li-ion battery that offers a mile range of 18-23 miles at a maximum speed of 20Mph.

Additionally, its removable battery allows you to remove and charge it anywhere at your convenience. It takes around 6-8 hours to get fully charged. We loved the battery power since it lasted for about two and a half hours on level ground.

We also enjoyed ECOTRIC 20″s ability to tackle all types of terrain. It has 7-speed gears that make it a great e-bike for riding off-road or mountain biking. You can ride over mud, snow, and sand with its anti-skid fat tires. What’s more, it has an outrage braking-system that provides you safety and solid control.

You can use this e-bike in two modes – pedal assist and throttle. You can easily switch between the modes. For propelling the bike forward, simply twist its throttle.

The easy folding experience was an appealing feature to us although we found it a bit heavier compared to others. It may feel heavy to carry around too but its space saving design lets you store it in small spaces. Overall, ECOTRIC 20″ is comfortable and strongly built that always ensures a smooth riding experience.

4 SWAGTRON SwagCycle EB-5 Pro (Great Value for Money)

We were pretty impressed with such a battery life. It also takes only 4-5 hours to get fully charged.

SwagCycle EB-5 is equipped with the SWAGTRON Autoguard technology that makes sure the motor instantly disconnects once you apply the brake. This is one of the amazing features of this e-bike that we absolutely loved. With such a great safety feature, you can confidently ride on this bike through the busy city roads.

The ergonomic design with its well-built seat and handlebars ensures your comfort and ease of use. But the seat height might not be comfortable enough for the tall riders. However, we didn’t find anything negative with its build quality. In fact, we found this bike one of the sturdiest in its class.

It comes with a 250-watt motor that produces less power compared to the other electric bikes we’ve reviewed so far, but you can expect long years of good service. Besides, its 36-volt removable battery lasts long enough and takes a decent 4-6 hour charging time.

You can go around 15 miles on a single charge with e-bike mode whereas the assisted bicycle mode lets you go up to a distance of 30 miles.

Best Folding Electric Bike [A Comprehensive Buying Guide]

Folding Electric Bike Buying Guide

1. Build Quality

Your electric bike needs to have a sturdy frame. You’ll be able to use the bike in different settings if it has a robust build. It will also last long. Make sure your bike is made from materials like stainless steel or aluminum that will help the bike maintain its natural look and you’ll also be able to use it in rainy and snowy seasons since it’ll be rust-and corrosion-resistant.

2. Motor

The motor of an E-bike comes mounted either on the crank drive or the wheel hub. How much wattage and voltage you get on your electric bike is an important factor. The more watts and volts, the better it is for your bike.

3. Crank Drive

Crank drive motors replace the cranksets of bikes by directly delivering power to the chain or belt. These motors maintain the optimal RPM even on steep-climbs.

4. Hub Drive

Hub drive is the most common type of motor for electric bikes. It easily fits on an e-bike and is relatively cheaper than the crank type. It’ll be easier for you to maintain a hub drive motor as well.

5. Weight

It’s extremely important that your bike is lightweight. A heavyweight bike can make you uncomfortable, especially if you’re over 50 years old. The ideal weight of your e-bike should be between 10-20 kg.

6. Battery

Today’s feature-rich models often come with built-in batteries. Make sure the battery has a large capacity that you can use for long hours. It should also take less time to get fully charged.

7. Tires

The tires of your bike should be durable and convenient. If you want to use your e-bike off road, make sure it has puncture-resistant tires. These tires are usually thicker and robust.

You may also prefer collapsible tires to save space and carry your vehicle around. For snowy areas, you should get studded tires. They won’t slip on the snow and you’ll get a smooth ride with better traction.

8. Braking System

The braking system has a crucial role in ensuring safety that must disengage the motor instantly after you apply the brake. Get a bike with an anti-lock brake for preventing the wheels from locking and maintain contact with the ground when you apply the brake.

9. Bike’s Stem

The stem connects the handlebars to your steer tube. A bike’s stem should be adjustable to ensure the appropriate height for the rider. You can adjust the height to your comfort and prevent your back from getting hurt.

10. Comfort

Your comfort is the most important thing when riding an electric bike. Before making an order, have a test drive to make sure you are comfortable enough with your preferred choice.

11. Distance Coverage

It’s important how much distance your bike can cover. With more distance coverage, you can have a longer ride with your bike.

12. Propulsion

The electric motor of an e-bike assists in your pedal propulsion. You don’t need to pedal entirely by yourself since a powerful motor will help enhance your propulsion.

13. Accessories

When riding a bike, you need the essential accessories like helmets, water, gloves, glasses, lights, padded pants, and so on. Make sure your bike can accommodate enough accessories that you need during a ride.

12. Reliability

Whether you get a budget folding electric bike or a high-end one, check the quality of its tires, battery, disc brakes, and build material. Talk with the previous buyers or go through online reviews to see how reliable it is.

13. Power Source

The power of an electric bike is one of the most important things to consider. You can save your time and have a longer ride with a more powerful motor and battery. So, check which bike offers you the best power. Mostly, you’ll get a decent electric bike with a 15A motor and 36V battery.

14. Warranty & Client Support

Your electric bike should be backed by a minimum one-year warranty from the manufacturer. It should cover all malfunctions that may occur during the warranty period. Moreover, you should expect to get free client support from the manufacturer.

15. Budget

Nowadays the price of an electric bike ranges between $500 to $8000 or even more. It depends on the quality and technical arrangements of the bike.

Care & Maintenance Tips

Your folding eBike requires maintenance just like a regular bike so you can get the most out of it. Here are some tips for you to ensure your bike’s optimum functionality and longevity.

  • Keep your bike out of direct sunlight. This could decrease the function of the battery and shorten its lifespan.
  • Charge the battery timely until it’s full.
  • Turn off the power before you clean the vehicle and make sure water doesn’t reach the port.
  • Use soapy water with a soft cloth for the cleaning session. Never use a jet washer or a high-pressure water gun.
  • You can use an old toothbrush to clean the chain and cassette. Always apply a layer of lube after you dry the chain.
  • When the tires have insufficient air pressure, inflate them until they both have equal air pressure.
  • Clean your battery connectors with an alcohol-based cleaning agent.
  • Use an air duster to clean the display and the controller.
  • Always check for wear on your brake pads before each ride.

eBike Riding & Safety Tips

  • Always wear a helmet. You better use a full-face helmet for better protection.
  • Check the proper fit of your bike before each ride.
  • Fast speed is always risky. You can install a speedometer to keep an eye on your speed.
  • Wear glasses to protect your eyes.
  • Add lights on your bike and use them to see clearly at night and alert others on the road of your presence. You can even use a light on your helmet.
  • You can outfit your bike with a horn and a bell to warn other riders.
  • Wear appropriate clothing, shoes, and gloves.
  • Never ride against the traffic. Always follow traffic rules.
  • Remember to keep your tires fully inflated.

Q. 1: Do you have to pedal an ebike?

Ans: Though an e-bike with a throttle doesn’t require pedaling, you still need to pedal it when you go up long, steep hills. But you don’t need to pedal hard. An electric motor only assists your pedaling – it doesn’t replace it.

Q. 2: How fast does a 1000w electric bike go?

Ans: A 1000w electric bike can go up to 30mph. However, according to the US federal laws, the power of your motor should not reach more than 750w. A 750w e-bike can go up to 25 mph.

Q. 3: What is the range I can get from a single charge?

Ans: It depends on whether you pedal or only use a throttle. The level of assist you use contributes to the range as well. On a single charge, you can expect 22-50 miles with a relaxed pedaling. Some advanced e-bikes can go even farther. Your size and battery capacity also impacts the range.

Q. 4: How much of my own carbon footprint will I be able to reduce if I use an e-bike instead of a car?

Ans: In states that depend on wind and hydropower, the carbon footprint of more than 60 e-bikes is likely to equal the carbon footprint of a gasoline car. On the other hand, in states which are dependent on coal, the amount can be around 20-30 e-bikes against one car. This means you really will be able to reduce your carbon footprint with an ebike.

Q. 5: Can I ride an e-bike as a regular bike without the electric power?

Ans: Yes, you can. You might want to only pedal on a level surface or use only the power while going up hills. You can easily switch back and forth. You can manually turn off the battery.

Q. 6: What makes a good electric bike?

Ans: It all depends on your needs and preferences. For climbing up a hill, an e-bike with a high-torque hub motor or a mid drive motor system might be the best. On the other hand, for riding long distances, an e-bike with a 400 watt per hour battery will be good enough for you. You can even find the best ebike conversion kit for sale and attach it to your regular bicycle and save money.

As a kid I inherited the love for mountain bikes from my father who used to ride for weeks through the Colorado trail in the city of Denver. He had his gang, and I followed pretty much the same track.

Later on, my interest in biking grew more after joining the Enduro race back in 2013. My buddies and I also participated in the Downhill racing for the third consecutive year, and it’s been an amazing experience.
