YikeBike – folding electro bike
2010

  YikeBike is an easily folded, taking little space, lightweight, electric bike. It’s a new solution for a city transport and a fresh experiment in design which we consider to be the best of bikes in 2010.

  The YikeBike is electronically limited to 25 kph. It accelerates to top speed in just a few seconds. It’s quite a comfortable speed for moving around the city.

When you need to recharge it – it will take about 20 minutes for 80% charge. A full charge takes 40 mins.

  You don’t need to worry were to park it – you just can fold it - with a bit of practice, folding takes less than 15 seconds and take it with you. The YikeBike weighs around 10.8 kg (23 pounds) with a full battery and air in the tyres. The folded dimensions are 150mm by 600mm by 600mm. The total folded volume is 43 litres. The folded YikeBike is considerably smaller than a typical folding bicycle and the fact that all of the mechanicals are enclosed reduces the risk of marking or staining clothing or furniture.
