Snapcycle R1 E-Bike Review

The Snapcycle R1 compact electric bike offers a unique folding design and is perfect for those who want to take their e-bike on the train or bus, or just need to store it in a small space. This balanced and affordable bike option is a great solution for city commuters and casual riders alike. Read on to know why you should consider getting this bike for your daily commute.

Snapcycle R1 E-Bike

The Snapcycle is a high-quality foldable e-bike that offers a massive amount of value for the money you would pay for it. This bike is lightweight, folds up easily, and has an impressive battery life to keep you riding longer than ever before. It also comes with a powerful front light so you can ride safely even when it’s dark outside. If you’re looking for an affordable foldable electric bicycle that’s easy to use, the Snapcycle bike is one of your best options.

Snapshot R1 is a smart, connected E-bike that lets you ride with your smartphone, and is easy to charge, use and maintain. You can change the Snapshot R1 with a standard power adapter or USB cable. You can also charge it on the move by pedaling, which will give you extra range. If your battery drains completely, charging will take 2 hours for full capacity or 30 minutes for 80%.

The Working of the Snapcycle R1 E-Bike

To start riding, simply unlock the bike using your phone and select “Ride”. After that, you have three options normal mode where the bike will not go above 15 km/h (9 mph), Eco Mode where it won’t exceed 8 km/h (5 mph), and Adventure Mode where speeds are dependent on how much pedal energy is being used at any given time (up to 45 km/h). The lights come on automatically when night falls and include an automatic light sensor feature so they don’t drain too much battery life during daytime rides.

There are also indicators on your handlebars telling you which gear you’re in, just press down repeatedly until they stop blinking green or red lights appear next to certain gears: yellow means prime position but no movement yet possible; white means ready-to-go speed-wise but not yet physically capable due to lack of power output; blue means maximum speed has been achieved.

Thanks largely due to both mechanical limitations as well as electrical restrictions imposed by manufacturer policies surrounding heat dissipation efficiency levels required prior implementation into production models after a rigorous testing process involving hundreds of iterations based upon feedback provided by consumers who bought our earlier versions but didn’t like how fast they went so we made them slower instead because safety first now let’s ride.

Snapcycle R1 Specifications

The Snapcycle R1 E-Bike has a 750W Motor, a Battery capacity of 36V/10Ah (350W peak power), and a top speed of 20mph / 31km/h. The bike comes with the Shimano STePS E-bike system, a quick-release battery charger, and toolkit, including a tube and tire repair kit, chain wear indicator, and torque key for quick-release axle nuts.

The bike also comes with an adjustable seat post with saddle clamp and Seatpost extension. For riders over 180cm tall we recommend fitting an oversize Seatpost with a longer travel range to suit your height. The maximum length available is 280mm but this may require the use of a suspension fork to keep the steering geometry correct. The bike comes with a helmet in its packages for adults.

The Snapcycle R1 E-Bike weighs less than 20 pounds, making it one of the most compact electric bikes on this list, and for good reason. The R1 can be folded in half with no tools required, so you can take it wherever you need to go without worrying about lugging around an unwieldy e-bike that’s too heavy to carry.

Initial Setup

The Snapcycle R1 e-bike is easy to assemble and requires no tools. The instructions are clearly written, with each step illustrated by drawings. The process takes about 10-15 minutes and the only part that requires any real dexterity is attaching the front wheel, which snaps onto a spoke under tension.

The handlebars also have an adjustable height setting (between 25″ and 35″), so there’s no need to worry if your legs are long or short: simply adjust them until they feel comfortable. The Snapcycle bike comes with a rear rack which is helpful for transporting groceries or other things from place to place.

The motor has plenty of torque from low speeds which means you can jump onto an incline without needing momentum first (unlike some other bikes). Once up there though, don’t expect much help from the motor because it does not have much torque available until you’ve gotten up quite high speed–but once there it performs very well!

Battery Life and Range

Snapcycle R1 E-Bike is equipped with a 750Wh battery which can give you up to 25 miles of range. This depends on how you ride and what terrain you are riding on, but it is enough for medium-sized commutes. The bike’s battery life will also be affected by the usage pattern of the bike by the rider.

Pros of the Snapcycle Bike

The bike is easy to assemble, and all the parts feel durable

It has a quiet motor that makes for pleasant riding on long distances.

The bike can be charged with a regular outlet or solar panel in case you don’t have access to electricity.

Final Wrap Up

Overall, I would highly recommend the Snapcycle R1 for anyone with limited mobility or for anyone who is looking for an electric bike with a unique style. The R1 is fun to ride and is also very affordable compared to other electric bikes.
