The color scheme claims to capture “the calming essence of sunsets on the West Coast of the US” according to Heybike execs.

Horizon Specs

The Horizon is equipped with 24″ x 4″ tires, providing riders with optimal traction and stability on all types of terrain.

  • Motor: 48V/750W hub motor (peak power 1200W) for a smooth and effortless ride, whether you’re cruising on flat ground or tackling steep hills.
  • The Horst-Link suspension system further enhances the riding experience by absorbing shocks and bumps along the way.
  • The Horizon comes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes.

Not only does the Horizon come with high-performance brakes, but the integrated tail light features a turn signal light and brake light, ensuring that riders are visible to others on the road. Moreover, the front adaptive headlights automatically adjust to provide optimal lighting while riding at night or in low-light conditions.

Convenience is important for riders, which is why the Horizon comes standard with a foldable design, for easy storage and transport. Its compact folding size of 49.2×23.6×31.5 inches allows it to fit in smaller spaces such as car trunks or public transportation. The lightweight frame of only 79 lbs also makes it easy to carry upstairs or load into a car or truck.

The Horizon’s battery capacity of 48 V/14.4 Ah provides riders with a range of 55 miles in pedal-assist mode and 30 miles in pure electric mode. And with fast-charging technology, the battery can be fully charged in just 3–4 hours using the included 54.6V/4A charger. Riders can stay connected and monitor their riding status through the Heybike app, available for both iOS and Android devices.
