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.
