E-bikes: Fiido C21 Pro and C22 Pro unveiled
Just under a week after the beginning of spring, Fiido has presented two new e-bikes. In addition to good hardware, the two models should be able to work excellently with a smartwatch.
Fiido C21 Pro comes with smartwatch
Strictly speaking, the freshly presented e-bikes are two different versions of a new e-bike. While the Fiido C21 Pro comes in the usual frame shape, the C22 Pro is suitable as a low-rider primarily for female users. Apart from the frame shape, there are actually only minor differences. The C22 Pro also has a practical luggage rack at the front. This makes it look a bit like a Dutch bike and should offer enough stowage options for the small purchase in between or the work bag.
Unlike an Urtopia Carbon One (test), for example, neither the Fiido C21 Pro nor the C22 Pro are lightweights. At 17.5 kg, they come in at more of an average weight for e-bikes. It is somewhat annoying that the battery installed in the frame cannot be removed. Thus, you will have to take the bike indoors to charge it. However, this should not be a problem for those who have an outdoor socket anyway. You should not expect any special features in terms of hardware, but rather solid technology. So Fiido relies on a nine-speed transmission with classic derailleur.

The electric motor is located on the hub of the rear wheel. This is probably an M080 from Mivice, which should be able to offer a maximum torque of 40 Nm. The unlock feature of the electric motor is really cool. It can be set so that the motor can only be unlocked with the help of a smartwatch. It is therefore not surprising that the manufacturer Fiido also offers the smart watch directly. Pre-orderers of the Fiido C21 Pro will even get it for free. The Fiido Watch should not only unlock the bike, but also be able to measure the pulse of the wearer, for example.
Price and availability
For now, the Fiido C21 Pro will only be available for purchase in the US. The manufacturer calls an extremely fair MSRP of $1,399. Still in April the first models are to be delivered then already. Whether and when the bikes will also be launched in Germany is still uncertain.
