The FOLDTAN M-160 will be available in five colors including white, yellow, olive green, sky blue, and candy red. No doubt, these colors are quite aesthetically pleasing and will suit a wide range of choices. However, the main feature that is keeping everyone buzzing isn’t just about looks. To take this exciting electric bike to another level, Addmotor has introduced a U-shaped handlebar on the Foldtan M-160. The handlebar has a crossbar in the middle that connects the two sides, which makes it more durable and compact for daily riding. This better prevents deformation of the handlebars. It will also improve build quality and provide a superior riding experience without sacrificing performance when loading cargo into the front rack. 
With this exciting new handlebar design, riders can enjoy enhanced comfort, control, and a truly unmatched experience on their everyday rides. Therefore, this innovative design feature truly sets the FOLDTAN M-160 apart from traditional electric bikes. So, it doesn't matter whether you're a daily commuter or just someone who wants better performance in terms of control and comfort, the FOLDTAN M-160 can be your ultimate choice. For further consideration, let's examine how the inclusion of this U-shaped handlebar will improve your daily riding experience by the follwing plus points.


Plus points for U-Shaped Handlebars

First and foremost, the U-shaped handlebar on the FOLDTAN M-160 will provide riders with exceptional stability and control to maintain a firm grip on the bike and ride confidently through various terrains. Unlike typical handlebars, which are usually straight or with a slight curve, the U-shaped handlebar creates a broader base for hand placement, which helps disperse the rider’s weight across the handlebar. With this setup, the chances of losing control, especially when encountering bumps or potholes, are minimal. So, whether you like to ride through paved city roads or rough terrains, the M-160’s handlebars ensure a stable ride like no other.

The U-shaped handlebar is designed ergonomically to provide a smoother ride. In contrast to other designs, the U-shaped handlebar will allow the rider to place their hands more naturally, thereby reducing the need for constant adjustments and minimizing the risk of losing control.  This feature is beneficial when riding around tight corners or making quick maneuvers because riders are able to maintain a steady grip and easily control the bike. Together with Addmotor's 5-inch LCD display attached to the center of the crossbar, you'll have a better idea of your riding, like battery usage, mileage, speed, lighting usage, PAS level, current motor wattage, etc. Therefore, your Foldtan M-160 will make you feel completely in control, no matter how challenging the ride is.

Although the FOLDTAN M-160 excels at comfort and performance, it does not end there. The folding electric bike also has sophistication and style and looks aesthetically pleasing with its U-shaped handlebars on the front. Hence, it is the perfect mix of performance and appearance for all types of riders.
Additionally, the bikes saddle and seat post are adjustable. You can move the saddle forward and backward, and get a perfect position to grab the handlebars. The adjustable seat post can also allow you to change the height of your saddle quickly and easily to pull open the quick-release lever. It allows you to customize the riding posture according to your preference, body type, and riding terrains. This is especially useful if you want to embark on longer trips and equally helpful if you want to use this option for daily commutes or other uses.


Part 2: Introducing the Torque Sensor

Introducing the Torque Sensor
Today's world is characterized by fast-paced commutes, which can be made easier by electric bikes. Different electric bikes have pedal assist systems that provide riders with varying levels of assistance according to their needs. Riding an electric bike with PAS is easy. Once you begin pedaling, the motor will engage so that you can accelerate more quickly. The sensor is the component responsible for sending this signal from the pedal assist to the motor. So as soon as you pedal, the sensors send the signal to engage the motor. The entire process takes mere nanoseconds, so you won't even notice. Generally, there are two main types of e-bike sensors; cadence and torque sensors.

To ensure a long riding range for its riders, the FOLDTAN M-160 comes equipped with a torque sensor to engage the motor. The torque sensor on the M-160 amplifies the pedal input according to the pedal assist system you're riding in. In the simplest case, let's say you are on the lowest PAS mode, which is PAS1. The system will increase your pedaling power by approximately 50%. On the other hand, if you ride in the highest PAS mode, the system can increase your power by about 300%. In other words, the torque sensor measures how much force you're applying to the pedals with a precision strain gauge. As soon as you pedal, the torque sensor sends the signal to your electric bike's control unit, which will calculate the amount of electrical power sent to the motor.

With the change in the amount of force applied to the pedal, the torque sensor will send the signal to the controller. Therefore, you can easily control your electric bike's power and battery usage with the torque sensor on the FOLDTAN M-160. Torque sensors are commonly found on high-end electric bikes but the Addmotor FOLDTAN features this component to make your riding more delicate and smooth.

Torque sensors will give riders a more natural feel when riding the FOLDTAN M-160. With the help of a torque sensor, the M-160 can adjust the motor's assistance to match the rider's pedaling efforts. Therefore, the rider would get the feel of riding a regular bicycle as there's no delay or sudden jolt of power when changing PAS levels. As torque sensors do not exceed or produce a preset amount of output on PAS levels, riders can conserve their battery power and ride longer. Even with a 750W powerful, brushless motor, the FOLDTAN M-160 has an impressive 100+ miles riding range, thanks to this torque sensor. 

Moreover, the Foldtan M-160 still uses Addmotor's EB 2.0 lighting system. This maximizes the safety of your night ride.  To provide you with customizable riding speeds, the M-160 also has 7 levels of PAS mode and half-twist throttle mode. The SHIMANO TOURNEY TY300 Rear 7-Speed Derailleur offers a wide range of gears for different terrains and speeds.

Part 3 Introducing the Hydraulic Brakes

No matter whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or someone just jumping on the bandwagon of electric bikes, the safety and reliability of your electric bike is of paramount importance. Fortunately, Addmotor knows how to deliver on all fronts and elevate electric bikes' performance and safety to new heights. So, the upcoming folding electric bike, FOLDTAN M-160 comes with powerful hydraulic braking system to provide exceptional stopping power and enhance rider’s safety. With the inclusion of hydraulic brakes, the rider can experience an improvement in overall riding quality. This will not only lead to safe rides but also the satisfaction of mind, as they can easily rely on their braking system for an unmatched riding experience.

By utilizing hydraulic fluid to transmit force, the brakes on the M-160 will deliver instant and reliable stopping power to allow the rider to quickly and confidently stop the bike. Moreover, unlike traditional cable-operated brakes, hydraulic brakes also excel in constant performance. Cable stretch and wear can affect the cable-operated brakes as time goes on. But, not the hydraulic brakes, as they offer excellent consistency and predictability to stop your electric bike with ease. This reliability will enhance the rider’s confidence and ensure a smooth and responsive baking experience on the FOLDTAN M-160.

For fast commuting and other errands, the M-160 is one of the agile options out there, so having this sort of reliable braking is a must. Apart from providing much needed safety assurance, the hydraulic brakes also contribute to less fatigue as they can be activated with minimal force. This is because hydraulic brakes utilize fluid pressure to transfer force. Therefore, the rider can brake powerfully, with less effort and fatigue. This can be especially helpful for some elders, as they do not possess the same energy as they used to have. Another plus point of the hydraulic braking system is its quick response. With the precise and instant stopping power of these brakes, you can reduce accidents and collisions. Moreover, hydraulic brakes also require minimal maintenance compared to their counterparts. The hydraulic fluid used in these brakes is sealed within the system, protecting it from external contaminants and reducing frequent adjustments.

Part 4 Introducing the Easy-To-Fold Bike Frame
