When it comes to choosing your first electric bike, the one thing that you will definitely want to think about is the amount of power that it has to offer. There are so many different ebikes on the market right now and some of them are very powerful indeed. You don’t want something that is too powerful, but you also don’t want something that lacks too much power either.
In order to help make your task easier, we have tested and reviewed plenty of the most popular electric bikes on the market so that we can give you a clear idea of what to expect from each one. The bike that we are going to be reviewing for you today is the DAPHOME FIIDO D2 Ebike. Please read on for more.
Features: Aluminium Alloy Frame – 30-50km Range – 25kmh Maximum Speed – 16 Inch Wheels – Foldable – Front LED Light – 19.5kg
To start off with, we’re going to talk a little about the design of this electric bike. First of all, one thing that we did notice is that this bike is quite small in comparison to some of the others that we have tested in the past. The first thing that we noticed when we took a closer look at the bike was how remarkably lightweight the frame is.
Although it is lightweight, we didn’t feel that the bike was flimsy at all. In fact, the entire frame felt solid. Once it was all assembled, we were ready to put it through its paces to see what it had to offer. First of all, we felt that the bike was fairly comfortable to ride. Obviously it isn’t going to be as comfortable as your higher end models, but it isn’t uncomfortable either.
One of the things that we did notice during our ride was that this electric bike is very well suited to riding around busy areas because it is so small; it is much easier to weave through traffic and pedestrians without causing any problems. However, the wheels on the bike are quite small at only 18 inches which makes rough terrains a little bit of a challenge.
Something that is worth pointing out is that we definitely felt that the bike lacked a little in terms of power and it did seem to struggle a bit with steeper inclines. However, there are plenty of nice features to take advantage of such as the fact that the bike is foldable and it has a nice LED light at the front for riding in the dark.
Whilst we wouldn’t recommend this bike for riding trails or bumpy terrains, we would definitely recommend it if you work in the city and you want something that is small but powerful enough to manage your daily commute.
