This foldable E-bike line has already been well received across Europe. The 2022 models are the “Fiene 500”, “Fiete 500”, and “Henri 500”. These models fold to half their size and weigh only 47 lbs allowing them to be stored at home or in a trunk. In addition to being compact this product line has a range of up to 44 miles, boasts 3 levels of pedal support, and the charging time from empty to full should take 4-6 hours total.
