The Xiaomi QiCycle Folding Electric Bike (Black) is everything a folding electric bike should be. It is fairly light at 14.5 kg, e-bikes considered, and it folds down quickly and conveniently to a nice compact size. Above all - it is fun to ride, and this high-tech urban mobility transportation does not break the bank either.
Xiaomi is a Chinese tech giant and is well-known for its smartphones, laptops and other consumer electronics. This bike is brimming with technology, from the torque-sensing pedal assist through to the colour display and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity (via a smartphone app).
On the flat and gentle inclines, the Xiaomi QiCycle Folding Electric Bike provides seamless assist from the torque sensor as soon as you apply force to the pedals. Fitted with both front and rear brakes, the latter being a Shimano IM31 hub brake, you are sure to stop when you need to.
Designed with the urban commuter in mind. The Xiaomi QiCycle is also equipped with front and rear lights, that are adequate for short distance town or city riding. Mi QiCYCLE Electric Folding Bike is your smartest ride on two wheels with its downloadable companion app that gives you real-time ride information.
Whether you’re commuting to work, running errands or enjoying a leisurely ride around town, the Xiaomi Mi QiCYCLE Electric Folding Bike provides a natural, effortless cycling experience. Its practical foldable design allows for easy transportation and storage when not in use.

Smooth, Effortless Cycling
Combining a 250W brushless motor and a TMM torque sensor, the Xiaomi Mi QiCYCLE Electric Folding Bike automatically senses your tread power and outputs the appropriate electrical power to assist cycling. Smooth riding performance on uphill climbs - effortless automatic pedal-assist.
Colour Display | Simple Data Monitoring
Xiaomi QiCycle Folding Electric Bike's colour display not only looks great, but also provides the rider with a lot of data including power output (in watts), tracking your cycling speed, calories burned, distance, power mode control, battery level, vehicle health, and historical user data (cloud).
Please note: In order to set it up you will need to download the QiCycle app from Google Play or the Apple app store, then connect it to the bike using Bluetooth by scanning the QR code which can be found in the settings menu on the display screen itself or the underside of the display unit.
250W Electric Motor
The small and lightweight 250w geared front hub electric motor has a top assisted speed of 12.4mph (20km/h). It produces about 8Nm of torque suitable for urban commuting with electric folding bikes.
Long-lasting 18,650 mAh Battery
The Xiaomi Mi QiCYCLE Bike has a 36v5.8ah 18,650mAh lithium battery pack using high-quality Panasonic cells and is neatly concealed within the frame. This battery lets you travel for a distance of up to 45km on a single charge. For continuous cycling, its battery can be charged while inserted or removed from the bike.
Pedal Assist | TMM Torque sensor
Having a torque sensor on an e-bike in this price range is a huge bonus. Most affordable electric bikes use a cadenced-based pedal-assist where the motor kicks in when the pedals are rotated.
Torque sensors, on the other hand, provide electric assist by measuring the force being applied to the pedals. This provides a very seamless power transition, making the electric motor feel more like an extension of your own pedalling rather than delayed action.
The QiCycle uses a TMM torque sensor that is mounted on a sensor plate on the chainstay, this measures the deflection of the plate caused by the chain force. This, in turn, calculates the pedal torque of the cyclist.
Speedy Ride | Shimano Nexus 3-Speed gear system
Another great feature of this bike is the excellent Shimano Nexus 3 internally-geared rear hub. The Mi QiCYCLE Bike offers 3 different speeds, with its highest setting reaching up to 20km per hour, so you can enjoy riding casually around your neighbourhood or zoom across busy streets.
More common derailleur gears are not suited to folding bikes, as they are prone to getting damaged easily. An internally geared system negates the need for an external derailleur.
Others benefits of an internally geared hub are you can change gear when stationary (something you cannot do with regular gears) and they are virtually maintenance-free.
Please Note: Each state and territory in Australia has a different set of rules and regulations pertaining to the usage of e-scooters and e-boards (including where e-scooters and e-boards can legally be used and whether e-scooters and e-boards need to be registered with the relevant road traffic authority).
Any user of this product must ensure that that they check and abide by their local by-laws and use responsibly.
- Ride with caution and always wear a helmet and protective gear when riding your e-scooter or e-board.
