Swagtron’s swagcycle combines a compact design with a longer than average range and manageable weight to make it the best e-bike for around $500.
It weighs 37 pounds because of its small size and aluminum alloy frame, which makes the foldable bike incredibly easy to carry.
Swagtron also smartly designed a handle on top of the foldable bike that makes it easier to pick up after folding in half via the hinge on top of the bike.
The EB-5 has a surprising amount of power for its small compact size. It lacks multiple gears and only has a single power assist speed, but it’s 250-watt rear mounted motor is capable of reaching brisk top speeds of 15 miles per hour while ascending inclines of up to 30 degrees. This makes it an efficient urban bike that is suitable for a long range journey.
With the removable battery and large range of adjustment, the Swagtron is able to use a 36-volt 7.5 amp hours lithium-ion battery that will allow it to travel up to 15.5 miles on only 1 charge.
The Swagtron also has a 5-point safety belt and fits most riders due to its wide range of adjustable seats and handlebars.
