Although the price of the Prodeco folding electric bike is quite high, it is really worth your money. Prodeco V3 Storm 500 features a very clean, neat and beautiful design that you hardly can see on other electric bikes. This is one of the best electric bikes we have ever reviewed.
5. Dahon Mu Uno
This is the highest rated folding bike on our website till now. However, it is not really a popular bicycle because of its only disadvantage, the price. You will have to pay more than $650 to own the folding bike and a little more for the mudguard. Anyways, this is still a perfect folding bike for city commuters and will always be on my top recommendation. I’m pretty sure you can’t find a folding bike that is more lightweight than this one.
Dahon Vybe C7A is a new bike but it is very well-adopted. It is always in the list of best-sellers since its release in 2013. This is not a surprise because the Vybe C7A has a modern design, it is very portable and priced accordingly.
Schwinn Loop is the lowest-priced bike in the list. You can own the bike for just over $200 and still can enjoy a very good experience of a folding bike. This is a very popular bike thanks to its quality and affordable price. Its only downside is the heavy weight of 33 pounds, however, if you don’t have to carry your bike much, this is really a smart choice.
Many people will be surprised as the Speed Uno is on the list. It is even more popular than its advanced version, the Mu Uno. This could be explained by a very low price of the folding bike and it doesn’t compromise the quality to cut cost. People also love the clean and compact design of this bike. There is no brake cable and one speed seems to be enough for urban commuter.
Dahon Mariner D7 is an unexpected success of Dahon. It has managed to become the best-selling folding bike in the U.S. for a few years. People love this bike because it is very durable, it is water resistant, lightweight, it includes rear rack and fenders, has a very slick design and a superb build quality. For over $500, this is too good to be truth.
