The Blaupunkt Fiete is a nice small folding bike. When the shipment arrived, it was noticeable how much lighter it was from other folding bikes we have reviewed. Overall first impressions of the Fiete are that it is a well made, quality ebike.
Along with a quality finish, the Fiete is easy to fold and unfold. Folding and unfolding the bike is simple, just a few steps and you can get the bike ready to ride, or ready for storage. Also, weighing 47 lbs, it is easy enough to lift into a taller vehicle with ease. It also packs down small to take up less space. You can also purchase an optional Blaupunkt rolling case to put the bike in for transportation.
In addition to holding easily, it has a small wheel on the bottom bracket area which helps with storage of the bike to not damage the frame. The fiat is pretty quick for its size. It’s 350w motor can get you going to a nice speed relatively fast in the higher pedal assist modes. Moreover, the twist throttle is nice to get you going, and then you can pedal to stay at the speed you would like. The Fiete handles well for its smaller size, the front wheel sits far enough out from under the handlebars to create a more stable ride. Along with the other features, the Fiete comes with fenders to help block debris from getting on you.
Lastly, the Fiete is fully UL certified. This is great for peace of mind as well as for those who live in cities that require a UL certified bike. Being this is a smaller bike it may be stored in peoples houses or vehicles, it’s good to know the bike is UL certified.
