Xiaomi Unveils The Mi QiCycle - An Electric Powered Bicycle


Xiaomi continues to push the message that it's not just a smartphone
company — it's a technology company. Over the past year the
company has launched various internet-connected devices,
including air purifiers, wearables, rice cookers, and kettles. And it's
latest is A folding electric bicycle , released under Xiaomi's QiCycle


Looking at features and price, the Mi QiCycle Electric Folding Bike
certainly seems like a good deal. For 2,999 yuan (that's around
$455) users get a bike that can assist the rider's pedaling for 45
kilometers on a single charge, and comes with a companion app
that logs your distance, speed, GPS location, calories burned, and
more. The QiCycle also has Shimano three-speed gears, folds down
into a (relatively) compact package that weighs 14.5 kilograms, and
has front and rear lights built into its frame.

It's not clear if the QiCycle Electric Folding Bike is built by Xiaomi's
though. Earlier this year, the company launched the QiCycle R1 — a
non-folding electric bike with similar connected functionality.
However, that bike was developed by startup iRiding (a company
Xiaomi has invested in) and was much pricier, costing around
$3,000. Some outlets have reported that the Electric Folding Bike is
also built by iRiding, and although Xiaomi hasn't confirmed this,
they did say that the bike was built by one of their partner

Either way, this latest bike is designed to appeal to a much broader
market than the R1. Xiaomi is marketing it as the perfect bike for
navigating China's crowded cities, where there are already more
electric bikes than cars on the road. Xiaomi is entering into a busy
market, then, but it's confident it has undercut the competition on
price. The new QiCycle certainly seems like a solid product, even if
it missing the most crucial component for modern bikes: at least
4GB of RAM .
