Fiido ebikes are being hyped by a lot of the electric bike crowd on the internet these days. But are Fiido bikes really any good? I decided to find out for myself.
Fiido make an array of electric bikes and electric scooters that are stylish, futuristic, and urban. Their ebike range includes eMountain bikes, electric utility bikes, and folding ebikes.
Fiido ebikes are distinguishable by their small wheel sizes, which make them inappropriate for a lot of things. However, for city living, short-distance commuting, and going on the train, Fiido ebikes are an interesting option.

Fiido X Folding Electric Bike
[As seen in picture above]
Currently the flagship model, the Fiido X combines a trendy, slick design with top-of-the-range technology.
In particular, the Fiido X folding ebike features a torque sensor rather than the traditional cadence sensor.
This makes riding the Fiido X feel more smooth and more natural because, unlike with other ebike, there is no throttle. The torque sensor measures how hard you are pedalling and smoothly adjusts the amount of power being added by the motor.
In addition, because there is no throttle you need not worry about whether this bike complies with the law regarding throttles in your region.
While the Fiido X is small, the distance it can travel is not. The new Fiido X electric bike can achieve up to 130km (80 miles) on a single charge. For use in the city, the Fiido X battery offers more than enough charge. It takes 7 hours to charge the battery fully.
The frame is made from magnesium alloy and looks rather incredible while also being strong and light.
With a Shimano gear system, hydraulic brakes, and a brushless geared motor, the Fiido X is a high-quality electric bike that will get you to work and back with ease. And since it’s foldable, you’ll be able to take the Fiido X on the train without any additional costs in most places.

The top speed of the Fiido M1 is an impressive 40km per hour (24.8mph). And with a seven-speed derailleur, you’ll be whizzing over pretty much any terrain.
The 20-inch tires are 4 inches wide with deep, anti-skid tread that will give you grip and stability in sand, snow, puddles, and on rock.
As with any eMBT, the Fiido M1 has front and back shock absorbers, making it possible to traverse the roughest terrain in comfort and without damaging the ebike’s frame.
