In 2017 we increased the size  chain wheel on all Axcess Shetland range  so that you can pedal faster, while the full chain guard has been retained.

The new thumb throttle works up to 4mph. and makes it even easier and safe to start off on a hill or in traffic.  When pedaling the thumb throttle will instantly give you full power up to 15.5mph. But if you stop pedaling, the bike will slow to 4mph.

Since 2016 all Axcess range bikes were fitted with new battery technology. The cells in the battery are constructed differently, each cell is smaller and manufactured similarly to a standard dry cell. This provides more concentrated energy in each cell (known as 18650 cells)and improved quality assurance.  The height of the 16 Ah battery has been reduced from 470 mm. to 400 mm and weight reduced by 900 grams.  The reduced height of the 16 Ah battery means that it no longer impedes the lowering of the saddle to the minimum height.

Sturdy, robust, strong and with the same power and drive as full sized Axcess electric bikes the Shetland Folder is a formidable accessory for anyone’s freedom.

Not all folding bikes with this shape frame are the same and the Shetland has been designed to maximize rider comfort and offer a high level of specification. The frame is 2” longer than many similar looking bikes and with the curved handle bar a further 1” is gained. This extra 3” length makes the riding position much more comfortable, while the 2.15” chunky tyres give good grip on paths and tracks.

High quality components have been used – such as the sealed crank bearing between the two pedals, Tektro branded brakes, 3 power pedal assist settings and the thumb throttle. All are designed to improve your riding experience.

The factory have done their part by increasing the maximum recommended rider weight to 120Kg, and developing a “Stepped Controller”. In particular, this means that the bike does not rush off as soon as you start riding. The electronic controller reacts to your needs increasing the power as you pedal faster.

Shetland folds in just a few seconds and will fit easily into the back of your car, motor home or on your boat giving you amazing freedom to explore when you arrive at a new destination. It also stows away easily in a cupboard or under the stairs if you are a bit short of space at home.

A range of accessories are available , including a 16″ wicker basket,which does not impede the folding. Carry bag and various panniers fit well on this bike.

I bought an Axcess Shetland folding bike. It is well finished and well made. The 20″ wheels makes it smaller when folded but still capable of handling rough surfaces. The 2″ wide tyres also make the ride softer and give better grip on loose surfaces. It is easy to get on, and the thumb throttle gives a boost to get you going. Being unfit and overweight and 70 it enables me to go up gentle hills and extends the distances I could travel on foot. On hills of 30ft rise in 300ft or more, I am still limited before I run out of puff. On shallowers slopes there is no problem. For steep slopes I walk the bike (using the thumb throttle). A geared crank drive might be better on steeper hills, but they are more expensive and I hear they can be more difficult to repair. This appears simple, I’m all for keeping it simple. My use of this bike is mainly to travel to a set destination by car and then use it on mainly unsurfaced green lanes for wildlife surveying. It would make a good about town shopper as it comes with a solid rear parcel rack, you can put a lot in their rear double pannier.Overall I am quite happy with it, it does what it is supposed to do.

I recently purchased an Axcess Shetland folding Ebike. It took me a couple of weeks to get used to it but I think it is brilliant. No more walking up hills and it fits easily into the car. Dealer was very helpful.

We unfortunately purchased the wrong size bikes to fit in our motorhome but Access bikes were willing to swap these for foldable versions. Very happy with the bikes and the service.

We purchased two Shetland folding bikes, we are happy with them, I did find it different to get used to at first, my husband rides his to work everyday, his only comment is they are quite heavy to pick up when folded, but we are in our sixties, would recommend to others.

I purchased a Shetland folding electric bike just before Christmas. I have used it frequently and I have been very impressed with it.

Mr M E


Love it! I have a dodgy knee, which can’t put pressure on the pedal, but now I can cycle again, as the bike takes the strain.

Haven’t had the bike for long but great so far. Staff very friendly and welcoming plus six week free service of the bike was a welcome bonus.

Having reached the age of 71, I decided that having retired I would get myself a bike again, and after much thought and also a lot of time on the internet, I decided that an electric bike would suit me better, and also that a folding bike would be useful as I could go places with my bike in the car, without the hassle of removing a wheel each time, also living in a flat a folding bike in It’s bag is a lot less obtrusive. While on the Internet I came across ‘Axcess Electric Bikes’ site, this was not only very helpful, but gave a very wide choice of bikes, both in style and price. I drove up to Honiton to have a look at them for real. On arrival I saw a second-hand bike outside which I really liked, but It was not a folding one and I had to remind myself that I had decided on a folding Bike. On going in The showroom I was greeted by a very friendly lady who as it turned out was very helpful and knowledgeable. There was no pressure to buy and was encouraged to take my time to look at the stock. I decided to buy a New Axcess Shetland and asked to take it with me. The Gent who was working on the bikes in the workshop area, said that he would check it over immediately, and he also demonstrated how it folded and fitted in the bag which I also purchased. I was allowed to take it out for a test ride before purchase. It is a lovely bike, as has a really firm feel to it, and ideal for what I want. Being a folding bike it has a step through frame which I find easier a feature that even my Sister likes. (Come to that she did not want me to take the bike away with me when I visited her.). I use it for shopping, going on photography outings, or just going for a ride. I am still amazed as to how effective the battery assist is. The ratings only go up to very good, but I would rate both the bike and the firm as excellent. Should I decide to buy another Bike in the future, I shall go straight to Axcess Elctric Bikes of Honiton. Since retiring from a very physical job I found my knees were getting stiff, cycling has cured that. Thank You

Very happy with my Shetland electric bike . I spent many hours searching web sites to ensure the bike i bought would not be difficult to get spares for after a few year, especially the battery. Axcess were so helpful and i feel confident that if i had any problems they could sort it. If you are thinking of getting an electric bike you can buy with confidence from this company .

I recently purchased the Axcess Electric Shetland folding bike which fits nicely In the back of my SUV without having to lower the rear seats. It’s an excellent bike and build .. easy to mount and dismount .. perfectly suitable for me as I am now in my mid fifties and appreciate a little assistance nowadays on longer journeys and Inclines , that said It’s a great bike for any adult whatever there age and as they say … It has the power to get you there and back. I have previously owned two other electric cycles of another brand that were hard work to cycle when the power was off even on the flat. I’m pleased to say that this Is not an Issue with the Axcess Electric Bike that you can pedal with ease If and when the power Is not required ..

I'm really enjoying my electric bike it's great to ride. The staff at Honiton axcess bikes are very friendly and helpful.
we are really pleased with our E-life Voyage bikes, and Axcess folks were really helpful
Very helpful staff without being pushy, they are very happy for you to try all bikes until you find the right one for you.For myself this was the Wayfinder bike and it has turned out to be one of the best purchase I have made I love it.I did need to return to have some adjustments made but this was no problem and once again all staff were very helpful. I thought long and hard about an electric bike as people say its cheating but what I did not realise is that you can free pedal also which means you can build your fitness as you wish.Great Buy
