Xiaomi has always been releasing unique products outside its smartphone business, so it doesn’t really come off as much of a surprise when the company announced that it launched a smart bike. Yes, you read that right. Xiaomi has just launched the Mi QiCYCLE, a smart, folding electric bike designed for today’s innovative setting.
The 124.7 x 92.8 x 55.6 cm electric bicycle comes with a weight of only 14.5 kg and can be folded up to the dimensions 100,0 x 65,0 x 45,0 cm . The E-Bike fits well into the trunk, for example. Do not go wrong, if you miss the parking problem of the city center and a little further away. When looking at the technical data, however, the biggest shortcoming of the bike is equally noticeable: the stated maximum weight for the load of the bike is only 75 kg. The bike seems to be adapted to Chinese body structures. On the German market, there are certainly fewer people who weigh less than the maximum weight. The Mi QiCYCLE features a unique folding design that works around the main beam. It’s also powered by a Panasonic 18650 Li-ion battery, which is also the same battery that is used by Tesla. The company says that it can travel to 45 kilometers on a single charge.
If you’re keen on stats, the bike can monitor its own statistics such as the speed, your travel distance, the power remaining, dynamic, the calories you’ve burned, and so forth, which you can also read once you connect it to your smartphone. After a charging time of 3 hours, the electric bicycle is ready to bring its driver up to 45 km. A good value for a city bike. This range also depends on the driver’s weight. The closer you get to the maximum weight of 75 kg, the shorter the maximum distance to be reached. The QICYCLE brings it to a speed of 20 km / h and is in terms of speed with it behind the in-house M365 electric scooter. It is to be borne in mind that the speed of more than 6km / h with the Elektroroller officially only on the private ground can be driven. However, electric bicycles are permitted in Germany, the prerequisite is a TÜV seal. This must be approved before hand. Even on the tire size of 7 inches, it can be seen that the electric bicycle is more for city traffic than for mountain rides. The engine power is equivalent to 250W of the motor power of the Xiaomi electric scooter.
