Folding electric bikes have become a popular choice over the years. By folding ebike frames in half, you can more easily store them in tight spaces like cabinets and car boots. They also come with powerful electric motors and long-range batteries, so you can ride them further and with less physical strain than a non-electric bike.

The Mars 2.0 1000w ebike is the latest folding electric bike from Heybike. It is an upgrade to the original Mars, with a more powerful electric motor, hydraulic disc brakes, and a higher maximum speed. Let’s see what’s new with the Mars 2.0 and how you can get your hands on one.

Before we dive into the new specifications, let’s cover what has remained the same.

Like the original Mars, the Mars 2.0 is a folding electric bike, which means you can fold the frame in half and store it in various small spaces. The Mars 2.0 also has 20x4” fat tires, which you can ride at low tire pressure to improve traction and impact absorption. Plus, the 600Wh external battery is removable and has a maximum range of 45 miles on a single charge.

In addition, the Mars 2.0 has a hydraulic front fork suspension, which has an adjustable 65mm travel and provides further impact absorption. You also get the same high-quality aluminium alloy frame with fender mounts, a kickstand mount, and a rear rack. A Shimano 7-speed gear system ensures seamless, reliable shifting performance, too.

Simply put, everything that made the original Mars great is here. So, what’s new? The Mars 2.0 offers the following enhancements:

Enhanced Performance: Upgraded 1000w Rear Hub Motor

The most significant enhancement to the Mars 2.0 is the 1000w rear hub motor. Aside from being 250w faster than the original Mars, the new electric motor has a peak output of 1800w and 100Nm of torque. As a result of this performance boost, you can use the pedal assist and throttle to climb steep hills and navigate challenging terrain more easily.

The pedal assist mode ranges from 1-5, where 1 offers the lowest electrical assistance and 5 offers the most. You can apply the throttle at any time, providing a generous acceleration boost. Plus, the front LED display lets you know exactly how fast you’re riding, so you can ride within legal speeding limits.

Greater Stopping Power: Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Another upgrade is the switch from mechanical to hydraulic disc brakes. Unlike mechanical disc brakes, which transfer braking force from the brake lever to the pistons (and then push the brake pads into the rotor) via a steel cable, hydraulic disc brakes transfer braking force via a sealed fluid system.

While mechanical disc brakes are more cost-effective and are simple in design, hydraulic disc brakes offer more precise and responsive stopping power. They give you more control over how you stop. They also do not have a mechanical cable, which is prone to wear when exposed to the elements – especially when mud and dirt enter the mechanical disc brake system.

In terms of service, hydraulic disc brakes are more complicated to maintain, but they require less regular attention than mechanical disc brakes.

Higher Top Speed: Maximum Speed of 32mph

As well as offering fast acceleration, the Heybike Mars 2.0 1000w hub motor electric bike has a maximum speed of 32mph, which is 4mph faster than the original Mars. By using the pedal assist mode and throttle, the increased top speed will make it easier to climb steep hills and preserve your energy by relying less on manual pedaling.

Of course, you should always refer to your local district for rules surrounding ebikes. Most states have a maximum assisted speed limit of 20 to 28mph for electric bikes. For the most enjoyable riding experience, strive for an ideal balance of speed and safety, where you always have enough time to react to your surroundings.

Affordable Price Point

Price is an important deciding factor when shopping for an electric bike. And there are many factors that influence the cost of an ebike, such as material quality and additional features like a rear carry basket. The power of the electric motor and the range of the battery can also influence the price.

Avoid cheap electric bikes that use inferior materials or leave out key features to cut corners. For example, some manufacturers leave out integrated lights to reduce costs. Do yourself a favor and get an ebike that has all you need to ride safely and confidently.

As of this writing, the Heybike Mars 2.0 is available for the low price of $1,099, or for $194/month via Klarna. You also get free shipping, 30-day free trial, and a 2-year warranty. You can also request onsite assembly through a trusted third party for an additional fee.
