The IZIP E3 Compact folding electric bike is a road ready e-bike that can transform into an easily portable or store-able bike.
The IZIP E3 Compact frame is made by Dahon, a well known folding bike brand. The frame is constructed with large aluminum tubing.
This is the mid frame quick release that allows the Compact to be folded in half.
This is the stem/mast quick release that allows the handlebars to be folded down and to the side to move the handlebars out of the way.

Compact and portable.
The Compact comes with a 250 watt geared front hub motor.
The rear rack houses the 36 volt 8.8 ah lithium ion battery and controller. Rack bags can be added to carry items around during your commute to work or when running errands around town.
The battery charging port is located on the back of the battery. Simply plug in the charger cable and plug the charger into a normal wall outlet.
The battery can be locked into the rack for security or removed for charging/storage in another location.

Keeping it simple. The Compact has a 1 speed to minimize clutter, weight, and maintenance.

The Compact has both throttle and pedal assist settings. The throttle mode allows you to add as much assist as you want; pedaling or not. The pedal assist mode adds up to 50% of the total power and you can add more by twisting the throttle for maximum assist, but you need to keep pedaling.

Review Note: Each company pays a fee for a review on Electric Bike Report because of the considerable amount of time that it takes to provide an in-depth review of each eBike. A lot of time is spent on the full range test with distance & elevation profile, the wide variety of detailed pictures, in-depth video, and the write up with the specifications, ride characteristics, pros, cons, and overall thoughts. The reviews on Electric Bike Report are focused on providing you with a detailed “virtual” look at each eBike to help you determine if it is the eBike for you or not.
