Even if the weather outside doesn’t make me think of riding a bike or a scooter, it doesn’t mean that I can’t keep up with what’s still appearing in the offers of Chinese stores in terms of alternative means of transport. That’s why I recently found in the Geekbuying.com offer a competitor for the Fiido M1 or even the Fiido M1 Pro.
With a trunk on the back and a mudguard on both wheels, the Engwe EP-2 seems to be the right bike for cochlear rides or shopping. It can be used both in rainy weather and in the snow, thanks to the 20-inch wide wheels. They not only offer extra stability and safety, but can also serve as cushioning, making the bike ideal for mountainous or slightly rugged areas.
For extra comfort, the bike also has a suspension on the front wheel. Although it is a foldable bike, the Engwe EP-2 is not a bike that you fold too often. Maybe once, when you want to store it for a longer period of time, otherwise, due to the rather heavy weight (32 kilograms), folding can be quite cumbersome even for a man. An advantage is that the battery is removable, so the bike does not have to go up to the 5th floor to be charged, it can be kept outside and the battery can be charged in the house.
Like the rest of the bikes in this price segment, the Engwe EP-2 has 3 modes of use: assisted (the engine helps you pedal easier), fully electric (the bike becomes a moped) and manual (used as a regular bike). The transmission consists of a single-blade gear, plus a Shimano Shimano 7-speed gearbox. The brakes are mechanical, on the disc.
In terms of performance, the Engwe EP-2 integrates a powerful 500W motor in the rear wheel, which helps the bike reach a top speed of up to 38 km/h when used in full electric mode. The range promised by the manufacturer is 40-45 kilometers (used in electric mode), or 70-80 kilometers (when used in power mode). The battery has a capacity of 12.5Ah and a full charge should not last more than 5 hours.
In terms of features we can mention the generous screen on the handlebars (where information is displayed on battery capacity, autonomy or speed in real time), stop plus LED headlight, but also the electric horn.
Well, the price for the Engwe EP-2 is pretty good when compared to the Fiido M1 which has no mudguards or trunk, and the engine is only 250W. During this period we find it at Geekbuying.com with the price of $999 using the discount coupon. It is delivered from Poland, in 3-5 working days, by express courier, without any additional fees.
