Folding bikes have always been commuter-friendly fare, making them ideal for rides around town but not so much for more demanding situations. The MOAR Folding E-Bike changes that.
Like any folding bike, it can collapse into a highly-compact bundle, allowing you to throw it in the boot of the car or a corner of the closet. Unlike them, the darn thing is designed to ride like an adventure bike, allowing you to ride it not just in city streets, but along backcountry trails.
The MOAR Folding E-Bike is fitted with suspension both front and rear, allowing it to provide a smooth ride over the bumpy, uneven trails of backcountry paths, while 26×4-inch fat tires provide excellent traction, regardless of the surface. A chunky frame cut in 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum ensures rugged and lightweight performance, with all wiring integrated in-frame so there’s nothing to catch onto your gear. It comes in two motor options: a 500-watt hub model that pushes riding speed to 25 mph while producing 44 pound-feet of torque; and a 750-watt mid-drive model that pushes it to 28 mph and 118 pound-feet of torque.
Features include an integrated rack in the rear, three options in Shimano gears, an LCD screen on the handlebar, Tektro disc brakes, a 1000-lumen headlight, integrated brake lights and turn signals, and an built-in horn. It comes with three battery options, with the largest one providing 85 miles of pedal-assist riding.
An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for the MOAR Folding E-Bike. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $999.
