Cyclamatic CX2 Electric Foldaway Bicycle with Lithium-Ion Battery Review

The Cyclamatic CX2 Bicycle Electric Foldaway Bike comes with fairly good quality components that should last a long time with good maintenance. The bike weighs in at about 51 pounds which is pretty heavy for a folding bike, but it folds to a size of 24 x 34 x 32 inches; compatible enough for any daily commuter. Lets take a closer look with our Cyclamatic CX2 Electric Foldaway Bicycle with Lithium-Ion Battery Review.

The 20-inch wheels are fairly fat tires that make for a pretty natural feeling ride. The folding mechanism has a sturdy hinge that feels like it won’t snap or unlatch even in the roughest terrains. The folding action extends to the pedals which fold up to save some extra inch of storage space. All this makes the bike a great choice for commuters who wish to bring it with them on the train, or bus.

The 250-watt motor may not be terribly powerful, but it’s capable of hitting top speeds of 13-15 miles per hour on a flat surface with partial pedaling. The bike is advertised at 30 miles of range, but you are likely to get slightly less than that depending on the terrain and slopes.  You have the choice of how much work you want to do using various operational modes.

You can use it as a bike with no electric assist at all or choose a partial electric assist mode to amplify your own efforts. It, however, doesn’t have fully automatic electric mode - some degree of peddling is always required. The Cyclamatic CX2 is ideal for commuters, travelers and those with minimal storage. The improved version includes a new more powerful brushless motor, a 6-speed gear system, a new upgraded battery, and improved reliability.

The steel frame, quick-shift gears, and strong v-brakes offers all the qualities of a premium bike with the added benefits of a quick and easy compact folding mechanism and three pedal assist modes. Overall this is a very good bike in this price range and I recommend it to anyone who needs a dependable e-bike that saves both space and money.
