Heybike Mars

Heybike Mars Electric Bike

Electric bikes have been taking over the cities since the pandemic, and it seems like you can't turn your head without seeing ebikes all over the city streets. With the explosion in popularity, new manufacturers have entered the market to try to address the ballooning costs of premium ebikes.
While the top-end manufacturers have created some incredible, innovative products, the prices can get out of hand and be inaccessible to many would-be riders. Enter Heybike Mars, an affordable solution to get started with a daily urban commuter e-bike.
We're going to take a look at the specs of the Mars and see how it compares with other options in the ebike market to help you decide if the affordability is worth it, or if you're better off going for a more premium option.

10 Reasons to Buy the G4

  • The extremely attractive price point.
  • A good range for an urban ebike.
  • Shimano 7-speed gearing is perfect for urban riding.
  • Dual front light and braking indicator.
  • Easy and highly compact folding bike design.
  • USB charging port for on-the-go device charging.
  • Integrated rear racks and additional carrying accessories (if desired) to increase bike storage capacity.
  • Powerful motor for a seamless level of pedal assistance.
  • Fat tire ebike design for unparalleled grip on city streets.
  • Removable battery, which can help lighten the load a little when carrying or transporting the bike.

3 Reasons Not to Buy the G4

  • Relatively heavy for an urban commuter ebike.
  • While the parts comprising the G4 are perfectly adequate, they don't exactly deliver the premium performance that many expect from a new ebike.
  • Subpar battery life and range.

Bottom Line

The Heybike Mars has some great features to love, although it's far from the best-performing ebike on the market. That being said, it has power, stability, and precision when cruising through the city streets. If you've been looking for an entry point into the ebike market, Mars is a good choice to test the waters.
