Features & Spotlights

The reason why Rattan Pinus has become one of the most ideal folding Ebikes under $2000 is not without cause. In addition to Rattan's meticulous customer service and a warranty period of up to 2 years, Pinus also possesses some charming and irresistible features.


Dual Battery Availability--Max Range Up To 150 Miles

The default battery of Rattan Pinus is 20AH, with this big capacity battery, the range can be maximized up to 80 miles with the lowest pas level under pedal assist. However, that's not all. On the frame of Rattan Pinus, there is a row of screw holes that allows for the installation of an additional device inside the controller box. By doing so, it becomes possible to add another high-capacity 20Ah battery on top of the existing one, effectively doubling the range. Although this will increase the weight of the bike, it's not a simple equation of 1+1=2. It's like doubling your happiness, taking you to even further places. Going further means more unknown territories, and the mysterious often drives the spirit of exploration. With this feature, it is the perfect bike for riders who enjoy long-range ride without stopping the bike for charging.


Torque Sensor--Enhancing To Another Higher Level Of Riding Experience

One of the criteria to determine whether an ebike is more advanced is whether it is equipped with a torque sensor. An ebike with a torque sensor can elevate your riding experience to another level.


What Is Torque Sensor? How It Works?

It is a crucial component in modern electric bicycles. It measures the amount of  effort applied by the rider to the pedals and converts the input into an electrical signal.

Here`s a step-by-step breakdown of its operation:


  1. Force Detection:When the rider pedals, the torque sensor measures the amount of force or torque applied.
  2. Signal Conversion:The sensor converts this mechanical force into an electrical signal. The signal`s strength is directly proportional to the amount of force applied.
  3. Data Transmission:This electrical signal is transmitted to the eBike`s controller.
  4. Motor Assistance Adjustment:The controller processes the signal and adjusts the power output of the motor accordingly. The harder the rider pedals, the more assistance the motor provides, creating a smoother riding experience.

Why Torque Sensor Ebike Is Better?

  1. Smooth and Natural Ride: Torque sensors ensure that motor assistance is proportional to the rider`s effort, providing a more natural and intuitive riding experience.
  2. Efficiency:By delivering power based on the rider`s pedaling force, torque sensors help in optimizing battery usage, extending the eBike`s range.
  3. Enhanced Control:Riders can enjoy better control and responsiveness, especially when starting from a stop or climbing hills.
  4. Improved Safety:The gradual and proportional assistance reduces the chances of sudden surges in power, enhancing overall riding safety.

In summary, torque sensors play a vital role in modern eBikes by ensuring that motor assistance aligns closely with the rider`s effort, resulting in a smoother, more efficient, and enjoyable ride.


Samsung Battery Cells--Extended Cycles And Higher Efficiency


Samsung battery cells are known for their high quality and reliability. They utilize advanced materials and manufacturing processes, resulting in superior energy density, discharge efficiency, and charging speed. This means that, for the same size and weight, Samsung battery cells can provide more energy, extending the range of the electric bike.


Charge Cycles

For instance, a typical ebike battery cell might degrade to 70% of its original capacity after 500 charge cycles. In contrast, a Samsung battery cell might still retain over 80% of its capacity after 1000 charge cycles under the same usage conditions. This difference becomes especially apparent over long-term use, meaning that ebikes with Samsung battery cells will require battery replacements less frequently, thus reducing maintenance costs.


4.5A Fast And Smart Charger--Saving Most Time And Guard For Safety

Rattan Pinus comes with a 4.5A fast smart charger, which significantly reduces the charging time and enhances charging safety. For example, with Pinus' high-capacity 20Ah battery, using a 2A charger would take around 10 hours to fully charge the battery. With a 3A charger, the charging time would be around 6-7 hours. However, with the 4.5A charger, the battery can be fully charged in just 4-5 hours. Additionally, the smart charger offers several advantages to ensure safety. It can monitor the charging status of the battery and automatically stop charging when the battery is full. Moreover, it features functions such as overcurrent protection, overvoltage protection, overheating protection, and short circuit prevention.


Folding Mechanism--Saving Space And Easy To Carry

If you live in a small apartment, finding space for a full-sized bike can be a challenge. A folding ebike solves this problem effortlessly. When folded, it can fit into tight spaces like closets, under desks, or even in a corner of your room. This space-saving feature makes it ideal for city dwellers who need to maximize every square inch of their living area.


The compact size of a folded ebike allows for seamless integration with public transportation. You can easily carry it onto trains, buses, or subways without occupying too much space or violating transport rules. This hybrid approach to commuting – combining cycling with public transport – can significantly reduce your overall travel time and offer greater flexibility.


The ease of carrying a folding ebike makes it a perfect companion for travel. Whether you`re going on a road trip, flying to another city, or simply taking a weekend getaway, a folding ebike can be easily packed in your car trunk or checked in as luggage. This means you can enjoy cycling adventures wherever you go, without the hassle of renting bikes or relying on local transportation options.
