Himiway Escape by Kaelen Felix for 360 Magazine

Himiway Launches Four New E-bikes

Himiway promises a more exciting fall this year, thanks to the upcoming launch of 4 new cutting-edge electric bikes from the company. Watch livestream here.

Himiway is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its 4 types of brand new e-bike models in January 2022 of next year. The electric bike company recently released the teaser for the upcoming models; even though the teaser doesn’t reveal elaborate details about the bikes yet it has already created a  lot of buzz in the outdoor adventure world. Going by the tradition with other Himiway bikes, the upcoming ones too would be under affordable range,  with prices comfortably ranging between $1,000-under$3,000.

The 4 new Himiway bikes that are slated to be launched in January 2022 are – Softail Supreme E-bike, Multifunctional E-bike, and Premium All-terrain E-bike.

“We are thrilled to share that we will soon be launching 3 types of state-of-the-art new electric bike models come fall. While one of them would be the most innovative model from our lineup ever, another one would be an advanced utility bike that would be handy for your daily affairs. The third one is exclusively designed for outdoor enthusiasts and would make a robust partner for your off-road adventures across all terrains”, stated the leading spokesperson from Himiway.

As per the reports, Softail Supreme and Multifunctional models would be new additions to the company lineup. On the other hand, the Premium All-terrain E-bike is speculated to be the successor of the Himiway’s crowd-favorite Cruiser Electric Fat bike. However, these are just speculations- the Premium All-Terrain version may be a completely new variation for all-terrain electric bikes as well.

The Softail Supreme model stands out as the “most innovative” electric bike ever built by Himiway. Engineered with cutting-edge “first-notch” suspension (especially rear and front, based on softail designation), the bike promises to deliver an all-new experience for the riders. Going by the Himiway teaser, the model would be priced somewhere around $2,099 to say, under $4,000.

The second one, Multifunctional E-bike, is being dubbed as an all-rounder that would make a valuable addition to a busy and active family. From ferrying children to making deliveries to quick grocery shopping sessions, the bike has been designed to handle all. The bike will be $2,099.

The Premium All-terrain Electric Fat Bike is an advanced crossover between mountain and urban electric cruiser. As the name suggests, this model is especially designed for off-road adventures and has been equipped with major required features like, extended battery and incredible speed. The upcoming bike will also impress with its stylish looks. As Himiway hasn’t mentioned about fat tires with this bike, the model is likely to be a completely new model from the company. However, the other descriptions sound very similar to that of the previous Cruiser fat bike from Himiway. In regard to cost, the bike is speculated to come around $1,999.

360 MAGAZINE is an avid fan, and you can check out our very own Vaughn Lowery as a newly appointed ambassador for Himiway here.

DYU RELEASES NEWEST EBIKE

The new DYU R1 20 Inch eBike is the perfect companion for a quick trip to the bodega or a ride around the neighborhood. Sporting an aluminum body and 20-inch tires, DYU’s newest eBike is super lightweight and easy to store. DYU’s new torque sensor is the main feature of this bike, which boosts your pedal strength while riding, facilitating your riding experience: the harder you pedal, the faster it goes. The R1 eBike is perfect for anyone looking for a highly comfortable and effortless ride, as well as anyone just starting to break into the world of electric bikes.

DESIGN

The R1 design is all about flexibility. DYU’s new advanced Lithium-Ion battery sits silently within an adjustable seat, successfully veiling the bike to the external eye. The R1 also features a foldable handle head, making it painless to store in your car, building, or on the subway. The R1 head has two brakes and an LED screen, for which all the wires are neatly fastened together by a sleek black tube, ridding you of messy, unappealing wires in the front of your bike. The back of the bike has a designated space for any bags, groceries, and more commonly, a nice speaker for you to ride in sound and in style. All charging ports and wires are not only very manageable to use and easy to remove, but they are also elegantly placed, making the R1’s curb appeal sleek and simple. The R1 comes in 3 different streamline colors: Black, Green, and Blue. Affiliates of 360 Magazine had the opportunity to test the R1 Black, which was a silky matte, but our team imagines the green and blue colors are just as sleek. The R1 design is all about simplicity and ease.

TECHNOLOGY

The technology in the DYU R1 20 Inch eBike is evolved from previous models. Instead of a throttle, the R1 is solely based on a cutting-edge torque sensor to control your power while pedaling. With a maximum speed of 25 mph, the interior of the bike is a 250W Geared Hub Motor, from which there are 3 different gear speeds. The battery inside the seat is a 36V, 5Ah Lithium-Ion battery which takes about 3-4 hours to charge and has a maximum distance of 25+ miles every charge, making it simple to charge overnight or during the workday. The front and rear wheels also have dual disc brakes that add additional safety when braking. For an even more enjoyable drive, the front wheel has double-spring shock absorbers to allow you to go over bumpy roads without hesitation. The left handlebar is fitted with an LCD Display that shows you your battery usage, speed, and gear mode. The power button is placed on top of the LCD Display. For your midnight snack run, the R1 additionally has a light on the front for visibility. The tech in the R1 makes it useful for both leisure rides as well as those under a time constraint.

PERFORMANCE

For a full-fledged performance test on the capabilities of the newest DYU R1 20 Inch model, affiliates of 360 Magazine took the R1 out in Little Italy in the Bronx. Dating back to the 1850s, Italian immigrants began to move towards Belmont as the Bronx Zoo and the Jerome Park Reservoir were constructed. What resulted was an authentic hub of Italian cuisine and community, a cultural cornerstone of New York City to this day. The terrain around Arthur Avenue has both smooth flat grounds, as well as hills and bumpy roads. 360 Magazine took the R1 on an outing, passed by Full Moon Pizza, enjoyed lunch at Avenue Gyro, during which the R1 remained dependable. Although this eBike could be considered a subtle eBike, we made sharp turns, dodged double parked cars, and went over all the terrain in the area to test out the R1 features and aptness for all scenarios. This eBike is great for brief rides. Riding the R1, there is no problem in controlling the frame and the brakes were extremely receptive, so riding in the street with cars is no problem. However, it became clear to 360 Magazine that this bike is for leisure rides only, or maybe for your Abuela to go to the store and back. At first gear, if pedaling at a casual pace on flat ground, the R1 goes about 11 mph. At second gear, 14 mph. Finally, at third gear (considered to be the fastest) it only reaches about 16-17 mph. If you’d like to go faster and break the 20mph mark, consider going downhill or pedaling extra hard. Moreover, attempting to go faster by pedaling standing up feels like you will fall forward due to the size of the tires and the height of the handlebars. Yet, the DYU R1 20 Inch model is the perfect neighborhood-friendly eBike. DYU checked off every box for the comfortability of the R1. Enjoy a super straightforward to handle and lightweight eBike that does not go too fast but beats walking in both style and convenience.

ERGONOMICS X ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The R1 is a part of a bigger movement, along with all DYUs electric bikes. The DYU company is made up of staff from former high-tech enterprises like Huawei, Baidu, Mindray and more, so it is expected that their electric bikes will both be high quality and great for the environment! The eBikes have a high efficiency, featuring zero-emissions. By lowering their owner’s carbon footprint, having long-lasting batteries, and featuring fast charging times, their eBikes make a positive impact to our roadways and feature a green way to have fun!

In New York City, the other most common electric bike that is purely pedal assist are the electric Citi Bikes that have stations all over the city. Being a much bigger bike with big wheels and only one gear speed, those bikes are more suited for long distance and speedy travel. The R1 is perfect to take on the subway downtown for a ride through the West Village or a stroll in Washington Square Park; a mode of short-distance transport.

SAFETY

While riding the R1, it is certain you will get some swiveling heads in the neighborhood as you cruise through to your deli, but don’t be blinded by admirers. Priced at $999 and currently on sale for $849, you will want to make sure that your eBike is safe from theft. Although it does not come with any Smart App features, nor an anti-theft system, it does include a lock for the back wheel and the seat (which is important because the battery is within the seat) as prevention features. Therefore, without additional safety features, as an owner you want to make sure that you are consciously keeping the bike out of sketchy areas and out of clear sight. Don’t always leave your bike in the same place, use a good lock like a Kryptonite Folding Lock, and even use multiple locks on different parts of the bike. Anchor your bike down to objects that are more durable than the bike frame itself. Your first choice, however, should always try to bring the R1 inside.

Overall, the DYU R1 20 Inch Electric Bike is most suited for those looking for a very casual bike; not anything to go long distance and back quickly, but something for a brisk excursion through your neighborhood – perhaps a means of getting groceries and coming back home. This eBike is also appropriate for anyone of an older age wanting something that helps them move around with ease but is not too powerful that they lose control and injure themselves. Pick up a new DYU R1 20 Inch model here.

GoTrax Emerge Electric Bike

GoTrax has recently unveiled its 2021 electric bike series. With enhanced durability and power—and the same affordability customers love and expect—GoTrax provides an even more incredible e-bike selection than ever. 360 Magazine had the opportunity to test ride GoTrax’s newest model, the GoTrax Emerge Electric Bike 26”, on the reopened, bustling streets of New York.

360 Magazine took the Emerge for an exhilarating evening cruise through the Bronx and by the Lincoln Center, during which we clawed around sharp turns in Central Park with dexterous stability. If you’re in New York City, consider taking advantage of the public bike paths on summer nights.

The Emerge electric bike is a batmobile for commuters in a concrete jungle. With shock-absorbent, wear-resistant tires, this model is perfect for smooth city cruising. With the powerful 350w read-drive motor, this e-bike packs robust torque for unimpeded riding. As such, the Emerge can also handle rugged, uneven mountain terrain.

GoTrax offers electric transportation solutions that are becoming increasingly popular in today’s personal transportation-dependent society. Especially in the time of many being wary of public transportation, e-bikes provide a practical solution and sustainable alternative to traditional travel. Environmentally friendly and efficient, this bike is essential for active, ecologically conscious cyclists. With an auto hibernation function that goes into effect after 10 minutes of standby, the Emerge helps cyclists conserve energy.

All of GoTrax’s products are certified to UL safety standards, and the company understands the importance of ensured safety, ferocious performance, and high-quality design.

Design

Available in a sleek black or vibrant teal color, the streamlined design of this e-bike has major curb appeal and competitive performance ability. The fatigue and fracture-resistant 6061 aluminum alloy frame makes for an ultra-durable bike body.

Weighing in at 53.9lbs, this vehicle is sturdy, but also easily lightweight and transportable. The vehicle’s product dimensions are 68.5” x 25.6” x 42.9”. Further, this e-bike has an IPX4 waterproof rating, so riders can travel in any weather condition.

The Emerge has a maximum payload of up to 265lbs. However, the bike’s smaller frame was designed for optimal use with smaller, shorter riders. The compact design of this e-bike makes for effortless maneuvering and cornering.

Technology

Access all your digital needs in fingertips’ reach during your ride with the e-bike’s digital LED display. With an integrated power switch, battery indicator, front headlight, and gear switch, riders have complete control behind the wheel.

GoTrax knows that customers crave convenience, so the company made sure to prioritize such on their newest commuter bike model. On the handlebars, next to the digital display, riders can also access the bell, hand brakes, throttle, and three-speed level settings effortlessly.

Durability

The Emerge bike is equipped with mighty, sturdy 26” tires. These pneumonic rubber tires have tenacious grip, which is helpful when riding on rugged or slippery surfaces. They can even endure light potholes.

Further, these heavy-duty tires are shock absorbent and wear-resistant. Compared to regular tires, they provide a faster ride with less drag.

Performance

Cruise all day in your new favorite e-bike, thanks to its 36V, 7.5aH battery capacity. Once fully charged, the Emerge can transport riders up to 26 miles using pedal assist, and 16.7 miles on pure electric mode. Riders need not wait long after their cruise to keep going, as the high-capacity battery recharges in just 4-6 hours. This quick charge provides a long-life cycle for extended bike trips or unpredictable travel situations. Conveniently, the battery is removable and comes with a built-in lock, so riders need not worry about it becoming lost or stolen. Simply use the enclosed key and lift the battery for removal.

If you’re looking for even more power, look no further than the Emerge’s 250w brushless gear motor. This powerful motor can provide speeds of up to 20mph, delivering riders to their destinations in a breeze.

Ramp up your ride with the e-bike’s convenient hand throttle brake. The Emerge packs in major brawn and power, allowing riders to effortlessly climb hills with up to 14-degree inclines.

When it’s time to take a pause, the Emerge comes with a dual disc brake and an electric, anti-lock braking system. The Shimano professional 7-speed transmission system guarantees user control while on the go. This top-of-the-line transmission system ensures a comfortable and controlled cruise. Once stopped, the e-bike’s installed kickstand ensures proper, upright storage.

Safety

With its horn and illuminating LED headlamp, the Emerge e-bike is a safe option for nighttime rides. Extra LED lights can be attached to the bike’s front and back for increased nighttime visibility.

For users looking for aid while cruising, the Emerge has an assisted bicycle mode for long travels. Assist mode allows riders to avoid zero starting, frequent braking, and aids in driving against the wind.

Other modes include pure electric mode and normal bike. Riders can adjust the vehicle to their exact specification with the three gear speeds: 1 gear (8.7mph), 2 gear (14.3mph), and 3 gear (19.8mph.)

360 Magazine recommends checking that the brake system is properly functioning before use. Be sure to review the e-bike’s safety warnings.

Ergonomics × Additional Features

Compared to other bikes in its category, such as the Swagtron EB7 commuter e-bike, the Emerge has a larger battery capacity, faster speed capability, and larger tires. Further, the Emerge is trendier than other e-bikes, with its Samsung battery sleekly camouflaged inside the bike’s body. As such, GoTrax’s newest Emerge model leaves other electric bikes in the dust. While the Emerge is similar to GoTrax’s earlier Alpha XL model, the Emerge stands out as the clear choice for smaller and shorter riders.

The Emerge Electric Bike comes modestly priced, at the cost of $699.99. Upon purchase, orders are generally processed in 24 hours and shipped out in 3-5 business days,

We’re sure you’ll love the Emerge e-bike as much as us, but if you’re not satisfied, GoTrax offers a 30-day return and 90-day warranty. Furthermore, for additional purchases, customers can add on a 2-year or 3-year warranty plan. Consider giving your new, shiny e-bike a name upon purchase.

Agile × Easy to Assemble

Note that while the bike arrives 95% assembled, customers still have to finish assembly manually or should seek assembly service. Cyclists looking for aid in constructing their e-bike should call Velofix– a mobile bike shop with many locations across the United States. For those on the East Coast, Cycle Haus is another trustworthy option for mobile e-bike repair. On the West Coast, Hoopty Bikes Mobile Bike Repair offers 24/7, mobile bike services. Once their e-bike is put together, riders are to be cruising in style wherever they journey on the GoTrax Emerge Electric Bike.

F-wheel A5 Electric Bike

By: Heather Skovlund x Vaughn Lowery

The F-wheel A5 electric bike has all the perks to an e-bike that you could dream of having while headed to your destination. It sports 14-inch wheels, an ergonomically designed frame, seating for adults and kids, and is easy to maneuver and store tight spaces with its folding capabilities. While you’re likely to see tons of these types of e-bikes zipping around just about any city in China, it’s a fairly extraordinary e-bike in the US. 

Curb Appeal

Affiliates of 360 Magazine had the opportunity to test the capability of the F-wheel A5 e-bike. The A5 is sleek and holds a trendy appearance with its 14-inch wheels and minimalist aluminum alloy frame. The A5 is designed for dense urban living with its durability, upgraded seat, and back seat perfect for transporting cargo (with bungee cords) or even a second person/child. The F-wheel is available in three colors: black, red, and white. This sleek e-bike is available in F-wheel A5 Standard as well as F-wheel A5 Deluxe. To customize the look of your new ride, look no further than Gabe Majalca, mastermind of Good Vibe Gliders for an enhanced flare.

Performance

With the amazing durability of the F-wheel A5, you will be able to sightsee in style and go shopping on a whim. The powerful 350W 48V motor will get you to your destination with ease with a max speed of 25KM/H. The F-wheel runs on a 7.5AH battery that is portable and removable, which is fantastic for charging. The added suspensions work nicely for a smoother ride with a noticeable difference in the seat post suspension. The acceleration is powerful, it has been reviewed at around 500W continuous and up to 750W peak for speeds. There are three different riding modes with the A5: Pure Electric Mode, Boost Mode, and Manpower Mode. The F-wheel A5 Deluxe is equipped with a LG lithium battery with a capacity of up to 21AH, with a BMS battery management system to help battery life up to 180KM.

Technology

As previously mentioned, the A5 has three different riding modes. The first, Pure Electric Mode, allows you to ride with no cycling of the pedals. The second, Boost Mode, allows you to pedal with an assist from the power source. Lastly, Manpower Mode, enables you to ride like a human-powered bicycle – no need to power on. There is a power display and real-time speed display in addition to the different modes offered: eco, medium and high. The A5 comes with two keys as well as two fobs to easily start the e-bike up. There is also an extra removable battery. The front and rear brakes work well as well as the front lights and taillights. There is a light on the back of the bike that lights up “EBIKE” which adds a subtle touch of flare to the bike. This e-bike is low maintenance without a derailleur or gears. The 14-inch tires are in a mag wheel – there are no spokes that need to be tuned or that will break. The F-wheel A5 weighs 22.5KG and easily folds up for easier transportation such as when you’re heading into an elevator, riding the Amtrack, climbing stairs or simply placing the e-bike in your apartment. Just simply fold the handlebars down, fold the frame in the front, fold the pedals down, remove the seat and you’re set. There are also sensors on the A5 to notify you if someone or something is too close the bike along with a lock on the battery.

Competition

Competition is very limited with the sleek improvements of the F-wheel A5 electric bike (formally DYU Smart Electric Bike D3). Priced at $700 and worth every cent. The closest competitor is the EB7 Elite Commuter from Swagtron. The next competitor would be the Flido D25 Folding Electric Commuter Bike. The electric bike trend has been on the rise due to communities embracing the go “green” activity. A review left on DYU’s website from Clayton Kent states that the A5 is the “perfect commuter bike enduring at least 70 NYC blocks a day” as well as “it has saved me a lot of money not having to use the train”. With the new improvements to the design and overall functionality to the F-wheel A5 electric bike, it is sure to be the front runner for delivery workers, professionals, and kids at heart.

Himiway Escape by Kaelen Felix for 360 Magazine

Himiway Escape

By: Emily Bunn and Vaughn Lowery

Himiway knows that their customers require comfort, capability, and fun when looking for a new eBike. The company knowingly advertises: “Kids prefer toys, grown-ups desire power, and elders need support.” Fortunately, their new model of the 2021 Himiway Escape is a moped-style electric bike that provides user-compatible customizations to bikers of any age.

Himiway offers an approachable, non-intimidating way to ride for all of its users–the only thing that will be difficult is deciding when to stop. The Himiway Escape emphasizes both form and function, absorbing impact while providing a controlled biking experience–and looks good while doing it.

The Himiway is the love child of American grit and Asian electronic bike innovation. The company’s founder, Mike Magaruh, has always had a passion for biking and improving his vehicle’s parts to create a more well-oiled machine. In college, Mike travelled to China and was inspired by the popularity of electric bikes. Taking inspiration from South Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese, and Chinese bike innovations, combined with the American desire for all-terrain vehicles, Mike created the first Himiway Cruiser in his own garage in California. When Mike tried riding his bike for the first time, he felt like a tough guy– and who tougher, or more American, than Ernest Hemingway? From that moment, the Himiway title was born and as they say, the rest is history.

Curb Appeal

With a sleek, matte black exterior and satin finish-accoutered with white accents-the Himiway Escape looks sophisticated, capable, and elite. The high quality, no-slip, double-stitched, PU leather handlebar grips provide a touch of sophistication and rugged elegance to the eBike. Without these handlebar grips the wooden handles of the bike can cause splinters, so we recommend this purchase for the best Himiway experience.

Design

Outshined by the sleek, attractive exterior, one of the hidden aspects of the Escape’s design is its invisible battery (here at 360 Magazine, we used a Samsung battery), which sits flush within the side frame of the bike’s body. The battery takes 6-7hrs to charge and can be charged while attachment or while released and unlocked. It has a total battery capacity of 672Wh, and lasts for 45+ miles per charge. Additionally, the Himiway Escape is installed with an integrated, automatic brake light and a large, bright 48V LED headlight, so users can bike safely any time of day. Another notable safety feature of the bike includes the half twist throttle on the handlebars. This throttle prevents accidental activation, protecting users from any possible harm.

The Escape’s pedals have been installed with a dual sided, aluminum crankset. These crankset guards enforce that the bike’s chains stay in place, even when traveling over mountainous topography. The low to the ground design of the pedals makes getting onto the eBike easy. Once users are seated on the Escape, the comfort of the seat’s large, wide design becomes immediately apparent.

One of the most fun features of the Himiway Escape include the rear rack installed on the back of the bike. This rack can also function as an extra seat, so you can bring a friend along for the adventure! If you’re looking for more storage, Himiway offers an optional basket on the front of the bike for purchase for $89.

Technology 

One of the most high-tech and helpful features of the Himiway is it’s large LCD display panel between the bike’s handlebars. Positioned at the precise angle to making checking information quick and easily accessible while riding, the LCD display provides battery capacity, an odometer, speedometer, and a wattmeter. If you’re on a long cruise and run out of phone battery needed to access your route, the display also includes USB charging capabilities.

The pedal assist level power adjustment is one of the most luxurious features of the Himiway Escape. This function lets users program their pedal assist settings, and customize the amount of power delivered in each setting. This eBike of the future provides user-curated experiences that make your travels more enjoyable. As they say, it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.

Customization

The LCD display panel is customizable, and with modification users can increase the bike’s maximum speed to 28mph, from an original maximum speed of only 22mph. In order to access this top speed, press the plus and minus buttons simultaneously to enter the menu. Once on the menu, press and hold the add and minus button again. Another menu screen should show up with a large “P” on the top of the screen, above four zeros. From here, use the plus and minus buttons to type 0-5-1-0. Use the “I” button to submit the digits.

After that, another the bike screen will enter another menu with a large “LS” on the top section, above “23 inches” on the bottom of the screen. You can also use the plus and minus buttons to change decrease this number to your preferred wheel height. After that, press enter again.

From there, the LCD display screen should show a large another “LS” above the number 90. It is on this menu that users can customize the bike’s speed limit. (While the Himiway cannot reach 90mph, it is the highest value on the speed limit menu.)

To exit these menus and return to the main screen, press and hold the “I” button. For further customization and assembly instruction, check out this review from JoelsterG4K’s Youtube channel.

Durability 

Designed with a 6061-aluminum frame, the Himiway eBike is built to endure all the journeys you will take together. With a 330lbs payload capacity, you can pile on the fun with no worries to weigh you down. Designed to decrease the cumulated pressure of both the bike and its rider, the Escape’s 20”X4” Kenda Fat Tires provides tenacious grip and traction on difficult riding surfaces. Kenda Tires are made for performance, and are designed with a reflective white strip so you can ride safely, no matter what time of day. The full suspension design on the bike allows users to be insulated from the impact of rough or rocky terrain, and provides a comfortable riding experience.

Additionally, the Himiway comes with an ultra-sturdy, pre-assembled kickstand. However, we recommend two people to assemble to Himiway, and encourage taking a visit to your local eBike store to double check its assembly.

Performance 

The Shimano 750W brushless, geared hub motor and 7 speed gear shift system allows users acceleration and power while riding the Himiway Escape, up to a maximum speed of 22mph. The Escape’s motor has a max torque of 80Nm, so bikers are able to take on any terrain effortlessly.

Riders can fluidly switch cog sizes to aid riding whatever path suits your personal journey. With over 45mi per charge, the Himiway is perfect for short trips to the store, or long cruises along scenic stretches. The charger is designed on the side of the vehicle, sleekly hidden away until you need it.

When you get to wherever the wind takes you, or if you just need a break, the Himiway Escape’s 180mm hydraulic disc brakes, paired with a full suspension system, allow users to stop at a moment’s notice. The aluminum alloy comfort-grip break levers, with a motor cut off switch, allow for maximum control while riding.

Ergonomics x Additional Features

Compared to other bikes in its category, such as the Rad Power Bikes Radrunner or the Super73 S1, the Himiway Escape shines with its dual suspension system and hydraulic front shocks. These capabilities provide for a much smoother ride than other comparable moped eBikes. Another popular eBike, the Juiced Scorpion, falls flat next to the Escape when considering the Escape’s cheaper price point and more lightweight design.

Modestly priced (and currently on-sale) at a price point of $1,599, the Himiway Escape is the perfect new toy for all outdoor enthusiasts. Upon purchase, the bike also comes with many free, included accessories such as the Himiway Escape rear rack, 16 in 1 multi-function bike repair tool (which includes a Socket Hex Wrench 8/9/10/mm, Slotted Screwdriver, Phillips Screwdriver, Socket Extension Rod, Solid Wrench 8/10/15/mm, Hex Key Wrench 2/2.5/3/4/5/6mm, and Spoke Wrench), full fenders made from durable PVC and stainless steel, and a Himiway bike cap. If you’re in the market for more bike customizations, we recommend you purchase a Bluetooth enabled Tile to keep track of your bike in case of emergency, battery operated horn, cellphone holder, and folding lock–all of which are available on Amazon.

This e-bike is the perfect travel companion, eagerly waiting to join you on all your adventures.

Safety

Once you have your Himiway Escape, you’re sure to get some admirational stares as you cruise in style. However, with an amazing eBike comes great responsibility. In order to make sure you’re keeping your Himiway Escape safe from theft or harm’s way, make sure you’re being extra cognizant to not leave your bike in shady areas that are large hives of bike theft activity. Switch up where you leave you bike so thieves can’t notice your commuting patterns to set up a targeted attack, and utilize multiple bike locks. You can even lock individual parts of your eBike to the bike itself. Further, by anchoring your Himiway to objects stronger than your bike’s frame, and ensuring that the way your lock passes through the bike requires the most effort and damage to be removed, you can deter most criminals looking to avoid a complicated robbery. Further, the parking in well-lit areas lessens the chance of theft since thieves don’t like to be seen in the spotlight. Better yet, bring your bike inside with you if your destination allows.
