Folding electric bikes like the ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike sit comfortably between the best electric mountain bikes and the best electric bike with throttle. After all, 20mph isn’t anything to sneeze at when you can hit those speeds with just throttle, no pedal assist needed. You’ll definitely blow through 40 miles in no time.
The ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike isn’t a stranger to power; it has 350 reasons thanks to its 350W motor, providing 20mph top speed, with a suspension fork to absorb terrain.

Aviation grade aluminum alloy is the choice of building material for the ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike. It’s lightweight, durable, and strong. And since this is a folding e bike, you can unhinge two locations to reduce the overall bulk of the bike for easy storage and transportation. More importantly, the high-strength professional front suspension fork is great for absorbing bumps along the way, and preventing the rider from bucking.
Even for a 350W hub motor, it’s still surprising to see 20mph register on the helpful LCD display, just 3 miles short of the Addmotor Motan Electric Bike. And the ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike can reach those speeds with and without pedal assist.
Speaking of pedal assist, if you want to reach the maximum miles per charge, which is 40 miles, you’ll have to do some work. The lithium battery does have an e bike mode, which lets the bike do the work, but it will shave a few miles off, bringing it down to 20-30 miles, similar to the Cyclamatic Power Plus CX1 Electric Mountain Bike.
The ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike doesn’t have many on-demand safety features. Its front and rear mechanical disc brakes have good stopping power, even in sketchy weather, but not quite like hydraulic disc brakes. There’s a headlamp, but it isn’t very bright. It does have a detachable battery, preventing theft.
Folding bikes like the ANCHEER Electric Bike reviewed here, do sacrifice features to keep pricing low. We can understand that, and the bike still has plenty to offer. So, who is this bike for? If you’re inexperienced in the art of mountain biking, or you’re on a tight budget, this bike is for you. Experienced riders should examine the NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike.
Despite a few shortcomings, like a dim headlamp, the ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike is still a solid beginner’s mountain bike. It has a 20mph top speed with high-strength professional front suspension fork, which is ideal for sporty moments. And the removable lithium battery is a necessary feature for commuters.
