Smacircle's folding e-bike has crazy transformative designSmacircle, the crowdfunded electric bike from China, folds down small enough to fit in a big backpack.
[MUSIC] Hey guys, we're here with the Smacycle foldable ebike at CES. It's an eight pound, foldable ebike with five steps you can fold it up so that it's about 19 inches long. It's small enough to fit into a backpack. You ride it by using a throttle on your right hand And a brake on your left hand one. I rode it, I found that throwing my feet onto the ground was my most reliable way of braking. But as you get used to it you start to get a feel for using the throttle, using the brake. And being able to control yourself as you're driving along. It's very sensitive, when you throttle you feel yourself move forward very fast. If you don't this is not something where you want to vroom, vroom. But when you're not in a hallway, when you're on the open road, it might be something you could get up to 20 kilometers an hour. It can handle people that are up to 200 pounds. And with a two to four hour charge you can go 20 kilometers. Small Circle funded itself through Indiegogo. Backers of the bicycle are gonna get before the Chinese But, in the US, if you want to buy it striaght out ��� it will be avlaible after the Chinese New Year.
