EKOOTER Cylinder Fold Concept eBike

Not going to lie. The only reason we are featuring the EKOOTER Cylinder Fold Concept eBike is because, it looks super cool… when folded down. The EKOOTER’s solid aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum alloy S-Frame folks down into the circular form.

I guess EKOO has the right to claim that EKOOTER is the world’s first cylinder fold concept eBike. In its urban mobility form, it measures 1,100 mm long and 940 mm and it is just 560 mm by 590 mm when collapsed. Now that, is super compact form.

The vehicle weighs just 18 kilograms (39 lbs), or 15 kilograms (35 lbs) for the Light model. EKOOTER is equipped with lights all-round (front, back and brake lights) which is powered separately by a 7 AH removable Samsung battery, good for up to 40 miles per charge (65 km).

It rides on 14-inch tires and has dual brake system for assured stopping. Another sleek feature is the cleverly integrated monitor that display vehicle’s telemetries like battery life and speed.

The monitor kind of melts into the stem of the handlebar which, you wouldn’t have guess until it is powered up.

EKOOTER is driven forth by a 350 W hub motor paired to a Samsung 10.5 Ah battery, good for 62 miles (100 km) on a single charge. The drivetrain has a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h), and could tackle 18-degree gradient with ease and scooter around a person weighing up to 270 lbs (120 kilograms). Finally, rounding up the package is an IP76 rating and an integrated kickstand.
