Folding E-Bikes vs Regular E-Bikes

Do you know the biggest difference between a folding electric bike and regular one?

There are so many models available in the market, so it's kind of hard to decide which to choose. That's why we want to share with you some information about the differences between a folding electric bike vs a regular model.

Folding vs Regular Electric Bikes

The main difference between folding and regular electric bikes is simply how they fold.

Folding bikes have hinges that allow them to be folded up so they can be easily stored or transported.

Regular electric bikes don't need to be folded up, but instead come with a locking mechanism that keeps them from moving when not in use.

The first is that folding electric bikes are designed to be portable, so they fold into a smaller size. This makes them easier to carry around and store when not in use. They also take less space on the road, which makes them more convenient for people who live in crowded cities or have limited space at home.


Another difference is that folding electric bikes have smaller batteries than regular electric bikes and usually cannot go as far per charge. This means they may not be as useful for long trips or longer commutes, but they are great for short errands around town where you don't need to go very far or very fast.


Folding electric bikes also tend to be lighter than regular electric bikes because of their smaller batteries and frames made from aluminum or carbon fiber instead of steel or titanium like regular bicycles have.

In addition, folding electric bikes often have lower top speeds than regular bicycles so they don't require as much power from their motors, which can help keep costs down somewhat too!

Folding bikes tend to be shorter than regular electric bikes. They fit easily in small spaces like closets or under desks at work/schools/colleges etc...This makes them perfect for commuters who want something lightweight that's easy to store when not using it!


When choosing between a regular bike and a folding electric bike, there are several things to take into consideration. Hopefully, this article has helped you make a better buying decision, as you now know all about the main differences between a folding e-bike vs regular e-bike.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).

Typically the standard FREE shipping (which has full online track and trace) takes anywhere from 7 to 40 days, depending on your country. We also offer an expedited shipping service for a low fee of $4.95. Please see the shipping page for more detailed info.
