Blix Vika+ is Perfect for Shorter Riders

The Blix Vika+ may be the easiest ebike I have ever ridden. It is so simple to mount/dismount and ride, it will fit any ebike rider under six foot tall, that includes shorter riders like under five foot! It retails for $1,649 so its on the pricier side for a 500 watt folder but you do get some premium parts and great design for your dollar. But the good news is Blix is having a sale right now so you can get it for less.

“We build every Blix bike with an obsessively high level of attention to details, allowing us to create a utility-friendly ebike with high-performance components for any riding conditions, without sacrificing a visually compelling design.”

It’s definitely a premium design and I’m impress with its parts list. The headline here is that the Vika+ is the most approachable ebike I have ever tested. In my opinion its the ideal ebike for shorter riders.

Th Vika+ features easy to shift gears with a twist of your right hand, allowing you to control your ride by shifting into the lowest gears on steep hills and into the highest gear to pedal in high speeds. No need to fumble with those push button shifters that most ebikes come with.

It’s got pop too. Thanks to its light weight (51 lbs) its very torquey off the line. Perhaps too much so because the front wheel likes to pop up a little off the ground if you lean back too much. But that is basically the only flaw I could find. It folds into one of the smallest packages ever so will be perfect for transporting in your trunk or back seat.

The Vika+ uses a 48V battery with high-quality 18650 cells and 614Wh total capacity that provides up to 45 miles per charge and 25,000 miles of battery lifetime.
