Ride. Fold. Repeat. The electronic foldable bike of the future, the Smacircle S1, allows owners to use a compact, easily foldable form of transportation.

According to techstartups.com, the       eBike weighs 15.4 pounds and its base is composed of carbon fiber, which compared to common aluminum alloy frames is 33 percent lighter and 10 times stronger.

The eBike is folded in five steps. Once folded, it measures 7.5 inches wide by 19 inches long. Its small size makes it easy to move and store.

The Smacircle S1 can support 250 pounds and has a maximum speed of 12.5 mph at a 15-degree angle. The eBike is powered by an Advanced Brushless DC Motor. According to theguardian.com, the Smacircle S1 has embedded electronic brakes. They stop the eBike in four meters at its fastest speed. Furthermore, the eBike is completely street legal, because of its low speed.

The eBike also has electronic features including a built in Samsung Lithium Ion Battery, which recharges the bike in two and a half hours after the initial 5.8 ampere-hour life. The Smacircle S1 has Bluetooth, a USB charging port, a smart lock, a mobile phone holder, an adjustable handle and saddle, and safety lights for night rides.

The Smacircle S1 is accompanied by a Smart Smacircle App. According to smacircle.com, the app allows users to lock and unlock the eBike, adjust the light and speed, and monitor the battery life. It also monitors the average and max speeds during the trip. It can be downloaded in the Google Play Store or App Store.

The Smacircle S1 retails for $1,499. It includes many tech-savvy features and is easy to use and carry.   The eBike unfolded a new possibility of foldable and electronic technology.
