Xiaomi has today launched a new bicycle aimed at urban commuters. It is not only electrically powered, but also boasts a foldable design, which will be a boon in cities strapped for space. The Qicycle Electric Folding Bike is priced at 2,999 Yuan (Rs 30,700 approximately), and it will be available in China. As with the IoT products in Xiaomi’s portfolio, there’s currently no word on whether Xiaomi plans to launch the bike anywhere else in the world.   Also Read - Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 series in works, may ship with 22.5W fast charger in the box

xiaomi-foldable-cycle-launch-3One of the talking points is the bike’s portability. Barring the main beam and the tyres (obviously!) the whole bike can be folded to a size that can fit into a hatchbacks’ trunk. In fact, the cycle only weighs 13.5kg, so it shouldn’t be too heavy to pick up either. Also Read - Redmi K30S with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, triple rear cameras launched

xiaomi-foldable-cycle-launch-2As for the cycling mechanism, the folding bike is electrically powered. A 250W 36V high-speed motor with torque-sensing capabilities will assist the pedaling action. It can sense how much effort you are putting into pedaling, and automatically assist with just enough power. The motor is backed by 20 Panasonic batteries, each with 2,900mAh capacity. Xiaomi says that the battery is good enough to survive up to 45km on a single charge. Also Read - Redmi K30S could be a Xiaomi Mi 10T with a new name, suggest leaks

xiaomi-foldable-cycle-launch-4Being a part of Xiaomi’s IoT ecosystem, it is not surprising that the bike has smart capabilities. One will be able to connect the bike to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The app will calculate the speed, mileage, distance covered, as well as fitness-related stats like the amount of calories burnt. One will also be able to choose from three riding modes — Economic, balance or strength. The three modes will determine how the electric motor assists the rider.

The bike has been developed by Taiwan-based QiCycle, a company backed by Xiaomi. The company was also responsible for developing the QiCycle R1 earlier this year. The smart cycle aimed at professional athletes is priced at 19,999 Yuan or Rs 204,700 approximately.
