The Basis Osprey Folding Low Step 20" Electric Folding Bike is just what you need when space is an issue yet you still need a machine to get you from A-B without breaking a sweat or the bank account.
Basis Osprey Folding Low Step Electric Folding Bike - a compact yet quick little runabout that can be stored out of the way where space is an issue, yet will still get you about your business. Could you need one for your caravan while camping, or perhaps to get you into town on holiday? Is space an issue for you at home yet you still want a decent commuting machine?
The 13 inch step through frame folds down to half its size when you need to store it, and with the adjustable quick release seat post can fit into a very small space indeed.
Even on the smaller 8.8Ah battery option you shouldn’t be too stretched when it comes to range - you can do up to 30 miles per charge on that option, or up to a whopping 50 on the 14Ah battery. At the office you can remove the battery to charge it, or you can plug the bike in without taking the battery out.
Component wise the Basis ebike has 20” CST tyres, adjustable quick release seatpost, full mudguards, front suspension and alloy V Brakes. A side stand is fitted along with a luggage rack with bungee straps. The bike will be delivered 100% fully assembled. You just need to unfold the pedals, frame and handlebar.
Most of the energy passing through the drivetrain on an e-bike is from you the rider. The Shimano 6 speed gearing system is more than enough for city streets and even the odd country lump when used with the 3 pedal assist functions on the 250 watt power system. Under European regulations speed is limited to 25km/h (15.5mph) so on faster downhill stretches the speed limiter will cut the motor out.
Along with the power settings on the LED display unit there is also a ‘walk assist’ function which gives the rider a burst of power when enabled of 6mph helping the rider upon start up. There is no need to pedal on this setting, limited to 6km (4 mph) in line with EU law for 'on road use'. For countries (eg: Jersey) where limitation of the throttle is not needed please contact us for details.
- This Electric Bike will be SUPPLIED ASSEMBLED complete with charger, and everything you see included.
- Upon arrival, simple attachment of the pedals and the straightening of the handlebar will be required.
