Hummingbird really pushed the boundaries of what compact, folding bikes could be when they released what was the lightest model in the world. The model weighed just 6.9 Kg. They are set to do the same thing again in the world of folding e-bikes with the Hummingbird Electric.
Working in partnership with Prodrive, their entry into the folding e-bike market weighs just 10.3 Kg, making it the lightest-in-class at the moment.
Don’t let the compact and lightweight nature of this bike fool you though, because it has a 250 watt motor with a higher power to weight ratio than any other bike on the market. It is capable of achieving a comfortable 25 kph on its 160 lithium-ion battery which enables you to ride for a maximum of 30 km.
Another huge selling point of this e-bike is the fact that charging the battery only takes 2.5 hours. This negates the need for an additional battery to be carried around by a rider.
With the motor, battery and everything else that powers the bike hidden in the hub of the rear wheel, it has a slick and slim-line look.
They are currently taking orders at the moment, so if you have a cool 4 and a half grand to spend, and want a more eco-friendly way to get to and from work, check the Hummingbird Electric out!CHECK IT OUT
