The Tyson is a Class 3 fat tire folding electric bike starting at $1699. Built with a magnesium frame, the Tyson has a unique frame design with full suspension and an impressive load capacity.
Power is delivered from the 750w rear hub motor and a 48v 15Ah battery. By way of pedaling or the thumb throttle, the Tyson has a max pedal assist speed of 28mph. With a 4-5 hour charge time for a complete charge, the Tyson has a 4A charger to quickly get you back out and riding.
Adding to the looks and providing traction are 20×4″ fat tires mounted to mag wheels. The wheels provide stiffness and rigidity for rough terrain while helping to keep the weight down.
Much the same as many of the bikes seen in the HeyBike lineup, the Tyson has hydraulic disc brakes and a Shimano 7-speed. Where the Tyson is different from the rest of the folding bikes from HeyBike is the full suspension design.
Up front there is a spring fork that has preload adjustment and a dampener adjustment. In the rear the Tyson uses an air shock, allowing you to adjust the pressure for optimum riding comfort.
The HeyBike Tyson has a total weight of 77lbs and a max load capacity of 400lbs. Mounting points can be found on the frame for racks and other accessories.
Safety and tech features found on the Tyson include smartphone connectivity with GPS tracking, Autolock and Antitheft features amongst many other readouts and customization.
There is a decently bright headlight and taillight. The taillight functions as a brake light as well and has turn signals built in.
