The Best Electric Foldable Bike eelo 1885 Review from Bike Radar

Here we have a folding electric bike that a) doesn’t cost the earth and b) won’t require Herculean muscle to move it around.

Okay, so coming in at 14.81kg/32.6lbs it’s hardly a lightweight, but it’s nearly 2kg/4.4lbs lighter than the lightest motorised Brompton. That’s partially down to its alloy frame and finishing kit, but the Eelo’s dinky 14-inch wheels and tyres must also be a factor.

As well as providing the usual pedal assistance that most e-bikes do, the Eelo has a trigger at the handlebar that directs the bike's rear wheel motor to deliver power right up to its 15.5mph cut off — no pedalling required.

Apparently its 36v LG branded lithium battery pack takes up to six hours to charge and will then go on to deliver a healthy range of up to 49 miles (79km). You even get a front light and mudguards.

Let's be honest, it almost looks too good to be true. We’ll be giving it a good go during the New Year to find out if that is the case.
