25 Reasons To/Not to Buy Hiboy P10 Folding Electric Bike

First of all, the Hiboy P10 folding electric bike is a budget bike from which you should not expect miracles. This electric bike is characterized by quite good workmanship, which implies a compact, foldable design and overall weight of 35 lbs. In fact, it’s not really fully foldable bike, but more collapsible as it overlaps only the steering rod, and the seat is height-adjustable. However, it is quite enough to easily pack it in the trunk of a car because its dimensions are extremely small (39.3 x 35.4 x 19.6 inches).

The entire construction of the Hiboy P10 electric bike stands on 12-inch pneumatic tires. Pay special attention here. Although some point out that this model has off-road capabilities it does not. This is a classic commuter or urban electric bike intended primarily for flat terrains. If you live in an area with frequent uphills and downhills this bike is not for you. In that case, you could choose Ecotric Hammer, Ecotric Lark, Gotrax EBE2 etc. Small 12-inch wheels just can’t easily overcome off-road terrains with stones, various cracks, etc. On the other hand, in urban environments, on asphalt, concrete and bike paths, this small electric bike will easily push through city and it is an ideal last mile option.

The performance of the Hiboy P10 electric bike is not bad at all. It has a fairly powerful 350 W motor that allows you to accelerate to a top speed of 15.5 mph. The maximum range of this model is 18 miles on a single charge when using throttle only mode, which is quite enough for a small commuter e-bike. But, if you use pedal assist mode, which I definitely advise you, then up to 31 miles can be covered on a single charge. Although this bike also has pedal only mode, I do not recommend using it. The reason for this is the fact that Hiboy P10 is a single gear bike and pedaling with such small wheels and pedals is a real torture.

The starting price of the Hiboy P10 e-bike is only $469 and that is why this is a very popular model. Also, thanks to numerous discounts the price is often lower than the starting price (check the price here). In this review I will give you 25 reasons why you should/should not buy this e-bike. The list of reasons was made based on a customers’ reviews and their opinions, ie their experiences with this model. So let’s start.
