DYU S2 Mini Foldable E-Bike Review
Most ebikes I've tested are really bulky and not suitable for small spaces， it's difficult to carry them to public transportation or take it to places in your car chunk.The DYU S2 is a mini e-bike that could meet the demands.
The DYU S2 came pre-assembled out of the box. Basically, I just needed to install the seat post and pedals before my first ride.
It was in really good condition， there was just a small crack on the plastic body， but this doesn't affect operations. the bike includes fenders， front light tail light， and a kickstand， so you don't need to buy anything else to start riding it.
this is probably the smallest e-bike I've ever used, my recent e-bike came with 12-inch wheels while this one has just 10-inch wheels.
I am just 5 foot 7 tall, but it already looked tiny for me, even when i set it at the maximum seat height. my 7-year-old daughter could sit comfortably on the bike.
therefore if you are taller and bigger than me, you should consider it carefully before making the purchase.
I really like its compact size, I can fold the handle post down and lower the seat post. then it can easily fit into any car chunk.
there are just a few controls on the handlebar, you can find a light switch a horn, a power button, and a right twist grip. there is also an led display showing the current battery level.
the DYU S2 obviously is not designed to use without an electric assistant. this is a single-speed with low gearing. so it's very slow when you just use pedals to move forward. you should always turn on the model and then ride the bike in full throttle, or payload assistant mode. I use the bike in full throttle mode.
most of the time and the pedals are just like footrests for me, riding the DYU is actually much more comfortable than I expected DYU bike uses a double shock reducing system, including a suspension seat post and thick tires.
it can smooth out rough terrain pretty well, so I can ride it on paved roads for more than 30 minutes without feeling significant discomfort besides the 240-watt model is good enough for me, as I mostly ride on flat roads and clamp some low inclines.
the battery could last more than 20 miles for normal usage, now let's check our pros and cons:
good battery life
not suitable for big riders
slow speed with our motor
Overall the DYU s2 can't impress me as an e-bike, but is a great alternative to e-scooters and is still compact while being much more stable and comfortable. so we can ride it for a longer period of time. I'd highly recommend the e-bike for its affordable price.
