14 reasons to buy

  • Reviewers compliment the Horizon’s "eye-catching" limited-edition paint scheme.
  • Testers praise the mix of maneuverability, stability, and ride comfort afforded by 24” x 4” tires.
  • This bike features auto-on lights, taillight brake activation, and front and rear turn signals.
  • The Horizon has fenders, a “loud” horn, and a rack rated for 120lb.
  • The 80mm suspension fork has adjustable preload and lockout.
  • A full charge takes only 3 to 4 hours, thanks to the included 4A charger.
  • Experts appreciate the powerful hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Testers say the Horizon provides a very comfortable ride over bumpy terrain.
  • The “great” Heybike app has features like PAS tuning and remote lock and unlock.
  • Heybike states fitment of 5’5” to 6’3”. Testers from 5’1” to 6’3” agree the bike is “comfortable” to ride.
  • Reviewers rave about how carefully the Horizon is packaged for shipping.
  • One tester achieves 25 miles of range at pedal assist level 3; another gets 22 miles riding primarily off-road.
  • When riding, the Horizon hides its heft well, according to reviewers.
  • Reviewers agree the low step-through frame is very approachable.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Experts agree the Horizon’s "heavy" 79.4lb makes it difficult to lift or carry.
  • A reviewer reports pedal assist lag, adding that this increases dependence on the throttle, reducing range.
  • Throttle power is limited to the chosen pedal assist level.
  • One tester questions the utility of a folding mechanism on such a big, heavy bike.
  • Buyers must attach the headlight, fenders, and rack, making assembly more involved than with some e-bikes.

Bottom line

Heybike's Horizon is a folding fat-tire e-bike with full suspension, a 750W motor, and a "stunning" limited-edition paint job. The "butter-smooth" ride, maneuverability, impressive speed, and powerful acceleration wow testers and owners. Reviewers praise the "crisp," powerful braking and hill-climbing performance. The included accessories, Heybike app, and "excellent" off-road traction and stability also score points. The folding frame and handlebars help with storage, but at 79.4lb, most will struggle to lift this bike. Overall, experts and buyers consider the Horizon "great value."

Heybike Horizon Review! The Unique Colored Full-Suspension Folding E-Bike

… one of the most important items I think worth mentioning, not simply just because of our brake issue, is the aftermarket support. Heybike is a Chinese-based company and so is their support, which means that it can be a little bit hit or miss.
