QWIC’s Compact FN7 gets best folding bike 2017 with a score of 77% in the site’s review. “The Compact FN7 has its own brand front wheel motor with rotation sensor. Support is very smooth under all circumstances. Cycling feels safe and secure and the riding position is good. The e-bike has a highly rigid frame. It’s doesn’t have the highest rated fold, but scores best for ride-ability and that’s what it is about. Therefore, the ‘Overall Winner’ of the AD Electric Bike Test 2017 in the category: E-folding bicycle. AD test panel has Qwic Compact FN7 assessed with a 7.7 final mark.

Plus Magazine – Monthly Dutch consumer magazine

Consumers tested 12 electric bikes to an extended test and chose the QWIC Trend series MN7.2 as the best mid-motor bike of 2016, giving it an overall rating of 8.5. “

The QWIC T-MN7.2 gives an excellent ride and feels extremely reliable. The Bafang mid-engine provides smooth yet powerful support. There are five levels of support, but on a flat road the first position is sufficient.
The engine is extremely quiet and the bike is equipped with a suspension fork with lockout and also a suspension seat post. The finish is excellent and they have remembered the details. The handlebars and seat color is right for this bike. Top bike for a very competitive price! ”
