The XDS E-City folding is the perfect bike for commuters and those who love to caravan. It’s simple to use, fast and compact to fold and uses a robust Bafang motor to cruise city streets and around town.
The lightweight aluminium frame can be folded down quickly and easily. There’s a folding mechanism halfway at the body and the handlebars fold down too. There’s a stand at the centre that will hold the E-City upright in its fully folded position.
You’ll find the E-City easy to ride, mount and dismount - especially with its low frame.
A rack and full length mudguard set protect against muddy water and keep you dry during your commute.
The E-City’s lithium-ion battery is sourced from Panasonic and not some no-name brand. It’s 2900mAh and 36V that delivers about 104Wh. This delivers enough range for short commutes and cruising around town. It’s also safety tested to strict international standards and Bafang’s software ensures it’s got over-current protection for longevity.
Upfront the Bafang system uses a large LCD display that has very easy to read variables. It shows metrics such as speed (current, maximum and average), trip (trip distance and total distance), battery charge and power assistance (5 levels).
Gears are controlled via a Shimano Altus 7 speed drivetrain. Altus components are reliable and relatively cheap to replace once they wear out. Shifting is performed using a Shimano grip shift mechanism.
