English manufacturer KKL presented itselectric folding bike Gocycle GX, which can be folded and removed in just 10 seconds. This makes it particularly suitable, for example, for commuting to work and then placing a two-wheeled friend in an office corner, where he will not take up much space.
Gocycle GX weighs 17.8 kg and has two 20-inch wheels. They touch the ground even when folded, so that the e-bike can be pushed. For safe standing folding bike has a folding stand on two legs.
With a 250-watt engine built into the frontwheel, electric bike can reach speeds of up to 30 km / h. The lithium-ion battery at 13.7 Ah is housed in a frame and is enough for a journey up to 65 km. It can be easily removed for charging, which takes about 7 hours. The battery charge is checked using the display on the steering wheel or in the companion application. Also on board there is a 3-speed Shimano Nexus gearbox and hydraulic brakes on the front and rear wheels. The existing Lockshock rear suspension makes it easier to climb through the curbs and minimizes the shaking of the Gocycle GX from gaps in the road.
A stumbling block to the purchase of a foldingAn electric bike can become its very high cost. Only on pre-order for it is proposed to pay $ 3,300. The first orders must be delivered to buyers in April 2019.
