The Heybike Mars is one of the most popular e-Bike models Heybike offers, with 30% of Heybike users now Mars enthusiasts and riders. This is likely thanks to the Mars design easily accommodating users whether they want to ride down a section of muddy trails, take their bike off-road or cycle across a sandy beachfront. Now the upgraded version, Mars 2.0, has been redesigned to offer what customers’ evolving demands include such as increased motor power, longer battery life and shorter charging time, hydraulic suspension and even easier foldability.
The Mars 2.0 also provides users with the amount of traction needed to take on corners at a faster speed without any risk of slipping or sliding. This folding all-terrain e-Bike is built for adventure, with 20-inch x 4-inch fat tires, improving shock absorption, and giving better stability, and suspension off-road. It is also lightweight – making it perfect for carrying upstairs or throwing it into the back of your car or truck to take on vacation with you. Besides these, it also comes with a new DIY Pegboard on the back seat that allows you to decide what and how to carry on your ride.
As an upgrade to the original Mars, the $1,199 price point is exceptional value for the extra capacity and new speed class (3 instead of 2) of the Mars 2.0. The original Heybike Mars had a maximum speed of 20 mph, but the upgraded Mars 2.0 can travel up to 28 mph, getting you to where you need to be quicker, but without sacrificing safety.
Mars 2.0 can travel up to 45 miles per charge (PAS mode) on a single charge. Its removable 48V/12w.5A battery comes with a 54.6V/2A charger, giving you full power in less than 6 hours. While the Mars e-Bike had a 500W Hub Motor, the Mars 2.0 now has a 750W Hub Motor, for better handling and resistance, that can reach up to 1200W.
