Folding bikes can be pretty great for city living, so it’s always exciting to see a new folding bike hit the market. The new Tyson folding e-bike from Heybike made its debut at CES 2023 earlier this month, and it has a neat, unique look.
One of the standout features of the Heybike Tyson is its unibody magnesium-alloy frame. Not only does it give the e-bike a sleek look, but it also makes for a strong frame. Heybike claims that it is the first folding bike in its category to offer a powerful 750-watt motor on a unibody design. The fat tires and full suspension would make it a good option for multi-terrain riding.
When it comes to foldability, the Tyson can collapse down to a compact 41 x 23 x 30 inches, making it fairly easy to lug around on buses, trains, or even in the trunk of your car. However, at 77 lbs, it’s a pretty hefty beast, so maybe practice your curls first.
The Tyson offers five levels of pedal assist to customize your ride. It also has a thumb throttle to let the 750W hub motor do the work instead of pedaling. The Shimano groupset provides seven gears for ultimate ride flexibility. The 720 Wh battery can get you up to 55 miles per charge.
In addition to those technical features, the Tyson also comes with a host of accessories such as integrated lighting in the front and back, full fenders, and a rear rack that can hold up to 120 lbs of cargo.
Heybike hasn’t yet revealed pricing or availability for the Tyson, but we’re excited to learn more.
