E-bike manufacturer Sondors has introduced a new fat tire e-bike with 20 inch rims that folds for convenience. The new model breaks into two bike industries that are gaining popularity: e-bikes and fat bikes and combines them into one machine.

Beginning in 2015, Sondors started a crowdfunding campaign where they promised to sell a fat tire e-bike for under $600, which shook up the often pricey e-bike market. After producing several different models, the company has now introduced a groundbreaking e-bike that can be packed up and taken almost anywhere.

The new Sondors Fold X has a 48-volt 14 Ah battery, that more than doubles the range of other bikes, and paired with a 500-watt motor, offers extreme torque, towing capacity and hill-climbing power. The fold model is built for both street and off-road adventures.

The forged aluminum frame is a one-size-fits-most, and weighs in at six pounds – offering a total bike weight of 50 pounds. The bike can reach speeds of up to 20 mph and can be upgraded to a Shimano 7-Speed gear cassette with grip shifter for increased hill-climbing power, further range variation, and greater terrain adaptability.

The bike can also be upgraded to an LCD screen with five levels of electric pedal assist plus added torque for increased hill-climbing power, greater range and further improved towing capacity. The Fold X LCD screen provides a digital display offering accurate battery level, time and distance traveled, as well as outdoor temperature.

The foldable e-bikes range in price from $699-899.
