Driving characteristics of the 20 inch folding e-bike

Today's technically advanced folding bikes have hardly any differences in their riding characteristics compared to modern city bikes. With a 20 inch folding bike you can not only ride on asphalt roads, but also gravel and forest paths.

However, folding bikes with small tires reach their limits on off-road routes or downhill trails. A folding bike with a larger tire profile is more suitable for such tours. However, with a folding bike with a wheel size of 20 inches, you don't have to pedal as often because the gear ratio is specially designed for this. The cadence corresponds to that of larger wheels.

What folding technology do we use for 20 inch folding bikes?

The folding technique for 20-inch folding bikes varies depending on the manufacturer. Usually, small city cars are designed to fold up in a very short time. Engwe folding bikes can be folded up in 3 simple steps in a maximum of 30 seconds.

The folding bike manufacturer, on the other hand, relies on a folding mechanism hidden in the frame tube. With Engwe folding bikes, the handlebars can be folded down, the saddle pushed in and the pedals folded in. This means that the folding bikes can be folded down to a minimal size; an Engwe 20-inch folding bike can even fit on the back seat of a car.

In addition, the X-series features a Shimano 8-speed gear system that ensures smooth and efficient gear changes. This gear system allows riders to effortlessly adapt to different terrain and riding conditions, maximizing both comfort and performance. Additionally, the X-series bikes are equipped with high-quality brakes and a robust frame construction that ensure a safe and stable ride.
