Back in June this year, Xiaomi launched its first foldable electric bike. Called QiCycle, the bike is part of the aforementioned Mi Ecosystem. The smart cycle flaunts a lightweight aluminium frame and weighs around 13.5Kg.
Xiaomi’s QiCycle comes with a longitudinal folding design. This helps in easy storage of the bike once it’s folded. The bike is equipped with TMM torque sensing technology, which senses the amount of effort put in by the rider on the pedal and provides appropriate power for a comfortable ride.
The bike uses a 250W-36V high-speed motor, enabling easy rides even on steep slopes. Having a maximum speed of 20km/h, the cycle has a smart meter which allows different riding speeds to be set.
The electric cycle incorporates an intelligent motion data monitoring feature that keeps track of speed, mileage, dynamic power and calories burnt while riding. All the data is shown on a 1.8-inch display mounted on the bike. This data can also be synced to smartphones via Bluetooth.
Xioami QiCycle uses Shimano gear shift technology with three modes – easy, standard and fast. The bike is backed by a Panasonic 18,650mAh battery with BMS battery management technology. Xiaomi claims that the bike can go up to 45km on a single charge, and its battery takes around 3 hours to get fully charged.
