For starters, the ride is quite good for a small folding bike. The 16"wheels lets it collapse down into a small transportable package. 16"wheels also aren’t known for creating the smoothest of rides. And although there’s no front suspension on the Swagtron EB7 Plus, you do get rear suspension to help smooth out bumps that the 16" wheels struggle with.
The little 350 W motor has its limits, but the small wheel size means bigger torque, and that torque is noticeable. The bike gets up to speed fairly quickly on throttle alone and can actually climb some smaller hills without dropping much speed. The EB7 Plus boasts a throttle-only range of up to 19 miles, however riders can take it even further with pedal-assist mode and add a few extra miles to their journey.
This excellent ebike boasts a 36V lithium-ion battery that takes just 3-4 hours to charge from empty; a great alternative to other similarly priced e-bikes that take 12+ hours. One of the extra features about the hidden battery is it's actually removable. Meaning it can be swapped for a fresh battery if you want to go on longer rides.
This fully folding electric bike offers a waterproof rating of IPX4. This means that the battery, electricals and interior circuitry are protected against moderate sustained water splashes, but is not waterproof. So while the Swagtron EB7 isn’t perfect, there’s a lot to love. It’s a quick, torquey little e-bike that is nimble enough for slicing and dicing in the city, but can fold small enough to be easily carried onto a subway train or stashed under your desk.
Overall, we feel that the Swagtron EB7 Plus is a great, cost-effective pick for commuters and ebike enthusiasts everywhere.
