The Swagtron EB1 electric bike is a perfect vehicle for tours in the city. Its wheels (14 “front and 12” rear) give it good manoeuvrability to avoid obstacles. With a modern and practical design, they make it the ideal means for short distances because, the battery’s autonomy in a mixed mode of use (pedal and electric assistance), can give you an average between 7 to 9 miles of travel (11.2 to 14.4 km). After that, you will need to recharge the battery if you want to have the electrical assistance again. Similarly, we would like to comment that sometimes, autonomy may be lower, due mainly to driving conditions, such as steep slopes (25 ° maximum) and greater use of the assistance mode.
Swagtron EB1, is certainly aimed at the young public familiarized or not, with the use of the traditional bicycle and to which, it would be very appropriate, to migrate to this new means of transport. It is not a folding electric bicycle because only the handlebar can be retracted to make it easier to transport, either in the trunk of a car or to achieve greater convenience when storing. A detail that is very useful is the USB port available to charge a phone while you have the bike in use.
Regarding the performance, the Swagtron EB1 electric bike has a 250w engine that gives a good performance up to a top speed of 12 mph (19 kph). Being light and with a small rear wheel, the response to acceleration is efficient, so it becomes a very pleasant vehicle and fun to drive. It is important to note that the riding characteristics of the EB1 are oriented to use in the city, for transport over short distances. Maybe an adult of average size feels somewhat uncomfortable and in that sense, options such as EB6, EB7 or EB8 are more appropriate according to the use you want to give.
In relation to safety, the Swagtron EB1 electric bike has a LED front light that at night, very well fulfils the function of illuminating the road, but not very powerful to see details of the pavement. We recommend using an additional LED light if you want a complete vision. Regarding the back, the EB1 has a reflective panel, which will allow the vehicles coming from behind to warn you but, we recommend installing a led/laser light equipment that will give you the peace of mind of always being seen.
The brakes on the Swagtron EB1 are disc in the front and rear wheel and mechanically driven from the handlebar. This combination gives an excellent feeling of control to the cyclist and when activated, the engine is automatically switched off to facilitate braking.

To maximize comfort, Swagtron integrated into the EB1, a “Cruise Control” mode which is automatically activated if it maintains the same speed for about 6 seconds
In summary, the Swagtron EB1 electric bicycle is a perfect means of transport for young people, comfortable and safe to use for short trips inside the city. It does not have the same characteristics as a larger folding electric bike, but it does have what it takes to get it to its destination, be easy to transport in the back of a car and it only needs 2 to 3 hours for a full load. The front and rear disc brakes, the cruising speed for greater comfort, the range of acceptable autonomy for a bicycle for use in the city and a USB port to connect any mobile device would be ideal characteristics so that you can decide to acquire it for a good price.
