I just found this interesting new e-bike. It’s called the DYU Smart Bike D1, and is created by the F-Wheel Company. This little electric bike offers an innovative approach to transport in gridlocked cities. It looks great, and has a cruising function, integrated front and rear lights. Weighing in at just 26 pounds (12 kg) with an aluminum alloy frame, you can carry it with one hand! It pairs up a 250-watt brushless motor with a 36 V battery. With its own app and numerous smart functions, is billed as safe and practical for commuting use.
Clearly this electric bike is designed for commuting purposes. It is purely about transport, as it does not offer pedals. On the other hand, you can use it to get part of the way to work, and then carry it with one hand onto the train! Or even drive to a parking spot, then pull the bike out of the trunk to travel the rest of the way to your destination. If you want transport options in a small package, with a unique look, this one is well worth a good hard look.
You can see this e-bike in action in this video.
The bike is just 40 inches (1020 mm) long and 37 inches (940 mm) high. That is pretty small!
You can see the size of this e-bike here, in the context of a fairly small person.
As you can see in the photo below, the handlebars fold down for compact storage, making this a great e-bike for those living in condos.
And due to its tiny size, you can throw it in the trunk and take it along on your travels!
The DYU Smart Bike D1 is paired up with its own DYU app, which shows you important metrics such as power, speed, and mileage, right on your phone. It also finds your bike!
You can set a cruising speed between 20 and 30 km/per hour. (That’s 12 and 19 miles per hour!)
The cruise function is controlled from the handlebars.
I have not yet had the opportunity to try this brand new e-bike. However, it looks like a product that will find a niche. If you are interested in stylish transport options, check this one out. You can find the F-Wheel company on this website.
