Although RF350 is technically a bicycle care should be taken when riding it or any other electric motor powered vehicle. You should treat your new transporter with respect, never underestimating it’s power potential. We advise that new riders always start on the lowest pedal assist mode until they are entirely at ease with the transporters acceleration, braking and maneuverability. This transporter has been built to provide you with years of fun commute, please keep your safety and that of others a priority.
Always use bicycle lanes where available. If none are available you must conform to all traffic laws that apply to other motor powered vehicles.
Always wear an ASTM and CPSC certified helmet when riding. Make sure that the chin strap is attached before your ride and follow the helmet manufactures instructions for proper use and fit. In many Provinces or States the wear of a helmet on e-bikes is mandatory.
Make sure to always wear shoes that have good traction on the pedals or pegs and will stay on your feet at higher speeds.
Squeeze the hand brake levers to ensure there is positive braking action before starting your ride. We recommend parking on flat surfaces. If however you must park on an incline, make sure to park your transporter perpendicular to the road with the back wheel leaning against the sidewalk, same as motorcycles.
Make sure you are sitting on your e-bike with your hands on the hand grips before engaging the throttle and keep hands on hand grips when riding. Beginners should always start on the lowest power assist mode until familiarized with the RF350.

What our customers think
I drive a mini cooper and was finding it difficult to install and uninstall the bike rack every time I wanted to go for a ride. This foldable e-bike has solved my problem. It is a real treat.
Moose Jaw, SK
Riding the RF350 is mad fun! I am really taking advantage of my new found mobility. I live in an area with a lot of hills so I was always reluctant to ride far, fearing I wouldn’t have the endurance to get back home. These days are long gone. Thanks Merkava
I was debating between the RF350 and the FatFold500 Fat e-bike. Although there was a slight increase in price I chose the FatFold500 because I needed that extra juice and fat off road tires for my mountain treks. I absolutely love it, it is so quiet and so efficient.
Otterburn Park, QC
My husband and I have been living in our RV for over 9 months now traveling across Canada. We used to haul two heavy motorcycles in the back for our trips into towns. Now with these foldable e-bikes we feel so much lighter and nimble. I would definitely recommend it.
Space is very limited in our 1 bedroom apartment and having no storage unit it was virtually impossible to keep a high value bicycle as leaving it outside, tied to a bike rack wasn’t something we wanted to do. These two babies fit snuggly in our closet. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
I just received my MK500-Foldable Fat e-bike. Just in time for winter. Only used it a couple of times during our first snowfalls. The tires perform great and the motor has some real pep. I have the feeling this is going to be a fun winter.
