Heybike, a Chinese electric bike manufacturer known for producing compact, practical, and affordable electric bicycles, has just unveiled a new model called the Tyson. This one-piece magnesium-framed e-bike is set to debut at CES 2023 in Las Vegas.
The Tyson is the first folding bicycle in its class to feature a strong 750-watt motor mounted on a unibody frame made of a single piece of magnesium alloy, making it both lightweight and extremely durable.
Heybike’s sales have been on the rise, with an almost 300% increase in the previous year and the brand becoming an Amazon best-seller, ranking third in the e-bike category and first in the adult folding bike category. The Tyson’s release comes at an exciting time for Heybike as it continues to grow in popularity.
“We’re very excited to launch Tyson during CES 2023. We designed this product to give riders the ultimate in aesthetics and convenience while delivering a riding experience like none other. Tyson is not only gorgeous, it’s also strong thanks to the innovative one-piece magnesium alloy construction. As with all Heybike products, riders can feel the superior quality and durability in every aspect of the product. Tyson’s unique frame geometry and folding unibody provide strength and aesthetics while also allowing the bike to be smaller and easier to fit into small spaces.” said William Li, cofounder Heybike
The Heybike Tyson is equipped with a 750W hub-mounted electric motor that can be controlled with a thumb throttle and has five levels of pedal assist. It also has a digital instrument cluster that can be connected to a smartphone via the Heybike Connect app. The bike’s 48V, 15Ah battery pack, which is housed within the magnesium frame, is claimed to have a single-charge range of about 55 miles.
Despite its impressive range and performance capabilities, the Tyson is relatively heavy, weighing 77 lbs. It also has several practical features, including a sturdy rear rack capable of carrying up to 120 lbs of cargo, a front and rear suspension system, 20 x 4-inch fat tires for rough terrain, and front and rear hydraulic disc brakes.
