You may have guessed from the name, but our new ARC II is an improved version of our previously very popular ARC folding electric bike. Not only does an electric bike offer the convenience of allowing you to get further, quicker…but this model also neatly folds away to be stored at home, at the office or on public transport. The frame has received the greatest improvement with its more sleek looking design, and the battery is discretely hidden away inside the tubing. Not only does it power the 250W rear motor, but it also has a port for charging mobile devices on the move too! On a full charge you’ll have no issues riding approximately 30-35km which should be more than enough for most commuters and leisure cyclists alike. And, as with all our e-bikes, you can charge the battery on or off the bike.
Dimensions when folded: 90 x 42 x 66cm
We find the 20″ wheel size offers the perfect blend of comfort, stability and speed whilst also being small enough to fold down to an easy to manage size.
All of this, coupled with a fully adjustable, telescopic handlebar stem, 550mm seat post, powerful mechanical disc brakes and a Shimano 6 speed drivetrain we think any Arc to follow this is going to have a lot to live up to!
