Made exclusively for E-Bikes Direct, the Basis Osprey Folding Low Step 20" Electric Folding Bike is just what you need when space is an issue, yet you still need a machine to get you from A-B without breaking a sweat or the bank account.
Basis Osprey Folding Low Step Electric Folding Bike - a compact yet quick little runabout that can be stored out of the way where space is an issue yet will still get you about your business. Could you need one for your caravan while camping, or perhaps to get you into town on holiday? Is space an issue for you at home yet you still want a decent commuting machine?
The 13-inch step through frame folds down to half its size when you need to store it, and with the adjustable quick release seat post can fit into a very small space indeed.
Even on the smaller 8.8Ah battery option you shouldn’t be too stretched when it comes to range - you can do up to 30 miles per charge on that option, or up to a whopping 50 on the 14Ah battery. At the office you can remove the battery to charge it, or you can plug the bike in without taking the battery out.
Components wise the Basis e-bike has 20” CST tyres, adjustable quick release seat post, full mudguards, front suspension and alloy V Brakes. A side stand is fitted along with a luggage rack with bungee straps. The bike will be delivered 100% fully assembled. You just need to unfold the pedals, frame and handlebar.
Most of the energy passing through the drivetrain on an e-bike is from you the rider. The Shimano 6 speed gearing system is more than enough for city streets and even the odd country lump when used with the 3 pedal assist functions on the 250-watt power system. Under European regulations speed is limited to 25km/h (15.5mph) so on faster downhill stretches the speed limiter will cut the motor out.
Made exclusively for E-Bikes Direct in 2018, refined for 2021/2022. We have been in the business since 2005 and have listened to our customers and learned what they want out of their electric bikes. While we offer this exclusive bike at the best price on the net, no sacrifices have been made on quality in building this electric bike. Designed by the same team that brought you our ultra-popular bestselling e-bikes the Green Edge CS2.

An EAPC can have more than 2 wheels (for example, a tricycle).
If a bike meets the EAPC requirements it’s classed as a normal pedal bike. This means you can ride it on cycle paths and anywhere else pedal bikes are allowed.
Any electric bike that does not meet the EAPC rules is classed as a motorcycle or moped and needs to be registered and taxed. You’ll need a driving licence to ride one and you must wear a crash helmet.
Really loving this bike, it's just what I was after something to give a little help when needed. Great that it folds so I can take it away in the campervan. Great company and fab communication.
The manual for the bike is poor - doesn’t appear to have been proofread, e.g. photo text and numbers don’t always correspond and photos are not clear.
Great 5* service from Esen though, e.g quick and friendly response to queries.
Amazing Service and advice! Thank you so much!
I highly recommend Esen Electric. Sam was more than happy to discuss my personal requirements and helped me choose the best eBike possible.
Over the moon with my electric scooter. Arrived very quickly. Everything i expected and more!
The Eelo foldable electric bike was just what i was looking for. Fast delivery and friendly customer support.
