SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE:
A best-selling electric bike brand based out of Phoenix, Arizona, Lectric was founded in 2019 by close friends Levi Conlow and Robby Deziel. With a goal of building the world’s most affordable high-quality e-bikes, Lectric has quickly grown into one of today’s most popular electric bike companies.
While other e-bike brands are focused on large, diverse e-bike lineups, Lectric remains hyper-focused on building 20″ folding e-bikes. Fitted with top-notch components, powerful motors, and high-capacity batteries for long-range riding, Lectric’s bikes provide the perfect package of quality, features, and performance.
For 2023, Lectric’s range consists of 7 foldable e-bike models. Featuring stylish designs and a range of color options, these good-looking rides come well-equipped with a rear rack, onboard LED lights, LCD displays, front and rear fenders, mechanical and hydraulic disc brakes, front suspension forks, and more.
Each Lectric electric bicycle arrives fully assembled and is covered by a rock-solid 1-year warranty that covers the rider in the event of a manufacturing defect.

No, none of Lectric's e-bike models come with USB charging ports.
No, Lectric's bikes come with an external charging port that allows riders to charge up their bike without taking out the battery.
No, even though the Long-Range models have a higher battery capacity, the weight of the actual bike is the same. Instead of using bigger (and heavier) batteries in XP 3.0 Long-Range and XP 2.0 Long-Range bikes, Lectric went with an upgraded cell. The result is a bike that can go farther but doesn't make sacrifices when it comes to weight.
Yes, in addition to multiple levels of pedal assistance, Lectric also includes a half-twist throttle that allows riders to ride without any pedaling effort. To engage the throttle, you simply give it a twist, and the bike's motor takes care of the rest. Keep in mind that whenever you're riding in throttle-only mode, it requires a lot more out of the bike's battery, so the max range will be reduced.
Yes, although Lectric's batteries are neatly integrated into the frame, they are removable which is super convenient when it comes to recharging the battery or bringing it inside for cold-weather storage.
Lectric's bikes are fully assembled when shipped, so it'll arrive on your doorstep ready to ride.
