DYU smart bike V1 review – Compact ebike with powerful performance

dyu smart electric bike v1 lightweight foldable

Seriously speaking, I am a girl with a fairly simple life. I go to work every day, buy groceries occasionally at night, and go shopping with friends on weekends. Although my life is boring, it’s pretty happy, but one thing recently caused me a headache—— The company has moved. Originally, there was a direct bus from home to the company, which was quite convenient. Although the new office location is not far away, I need to transfer trains, and after getting off the bus, still need to go a long way, so I thought, should I buy an ebike? After all, walking in winter is okay, but in summer I really get sunburned.

Then I went to buy it, my requirements are quite simple, small, light, good-looking, and enough battery life. After all, girls’ pursuit of beauty is endless~ soon, I determined my goal: DYU V1 smart bike. The main reason is: it looks good! Good-looking things are generally not too bad, right? But after I got it, I found out that it actually has more than just appearance. I’ll tell more about it today~

1. Good looking appearance

I don’t know how others are, at least for me, I would not consider the unsightly things. After all, the ebike is also a second face, and the bulk heavy ones are not suitable for me. At this point, the DYU V1 smart bike is still very satisfying to me. It is small and exquisite, and its simple lines are very urban.

When shopping, I especially chose this red and black color. Red represents passion and black represents restrained. It has always been a match I like very much. In fact, there are really a lot of mini-electric bikes on the market, but their appearance is as impressive as DYU V1, which really doesn’t fit me. By the way, the DYU V1 is fully compliant with most traffic regulations on the world, and it can be licensed. I only remembered this after my friend reminded me. Otherwise, I bought an ebike but couldn’t get the license, which would be very daunting.

Simply compare it with the products on the market and you will know that no matter where it is parked, it is undoubtedly the most shining star. I myself like the minimalist style design. The European geometric lines of the DYU V1 just touched my heart. Not only is it beautiful, but the V-shaped triangle design can also bear more weight. This is why I decided to buy in an instant.

2. Compact body with powerful performance

Although it is a micro electric bike, the power and endurance of the DYU V1 are not small at all. The built-in 36V brushless motor and FOC vector controller are very smooth both in starting and stopping. You may not believe it. When I started to trottle it to the end, sometimes I would be shaken by it, but it may also be that I am too light. After all, 158cm and 81 kg are very thin among girls.

In terms of battery life, I have not actually tested it, because it is equipped with a large extended-range lithium battery. The official data is that it can last 60 kilometers in the power-assisted state (this will be discussed later). From my actual use, it is also the same, I go to work for about 6 kilometers one way, 12 kilometers a day, plus occasionally to buy food and eat a meal, 15 kilometers a day, which is about four days or so, which is very durable. Coupled with the BMS intelligent battery management system, the theoretical life of the battery has reached about 5 years, which is very worry-free.

3. Handlebar design and riding style

As a miniature electric bike, DYU V1 has no extra design on the handlebars, it is very simple, but it has all the functions it should have. The simple straight handle is made of high-strength materials. In addition to the front and rear brakes, there are simple operation buttons on the left and right sides. It is very convenient to use, at least I never use it in a mass.

The biggest feature of the DYU V1 is a variety of riding modes. In addition to the power button on the right handlebar, we can also choose three different modes of travel.

1. Self-pedaling riding: go out directly like a bicycle. Because the body is small and light, you will not feel tired. Not only can you exercise, you can also ride home when there is no electricity.

2. Power-assisted riding: The smart sensor system will output half of the pedaling force, making pedaling easier and more labor-saving, while the cruising range is longer, reaching 60 kilometers. This is also my favorite way of traveling.

3. Pure electric riding: full power up, the power will appear instantly after the handlebar is twisted, giving you a free and enjoyable travel experience.

The left handlebar can adjust the light, or press the horn to remind the front to pay attention. Finally, I have to mention the sense of grip of the DYU V1. It is really the most comfortable electric bikes I have used. It will not slip, and will not be sore after a long time. It is very suitable for girls.

 

4. comfortable riding experience

I believe that people who often ride ebikes deeply experience the feeling of pain in their buttocks after sitting for a long time. This is caused by poor seat design or materials. The seat of the DYU V1 has been widened and thickened. It is made of high-elastic cotton core and has four layers of padding. It is very soft and fits the curve of the hips well. I rode for outings on weekends. , About 20 kilometers back and forth, still did not feel sore butt.

Shock absorption has always been an important indicator of the comfort of electric vehicles. The whole DYU V1 has multiple shock absorption designs, and a high-elastic shock absorber spring under the body structure reduces the discomfort caused by the ups and downs of the body.

There is also an independent shock absorbing system at the bottom of the front handlebar, which is quite satisfactory in the face of various road conditions and potholes. With the aluminum alloy body, the shock absorption is very satisfactory to me. Because the subway is under construction near my home, the road conditions are really worrying. There are ditches and ridges everywhere. Fortunately, DYU V1 takes this into consideration. The lightweight body and excellent shock absorption make the entire ride very comfortable.

5. colorful lighting design

Many people, including me, forget to turn on the lights when riding an ebike at night, but since I saw someone hit a wall while riding a bike, I changed my attitude. Really, it hurts all the time. In order to make driving at night safer, DYU V1 uses a combination of multiple high-brightness LED lights. The front light board looks small, but in fact the brightness is very impressive, and it is very power-saving, which can protect itself well in dim environments.

In addition to the front lights, the rear brake lights of the DYU V1 are also very interesting. When you pinch the brakes, the LED lights at the rear will instantly turn on. Not only the brightness is high, but also a small beam is formed, which is more conspicuous and avoid the ebike from behind collided. Not to mention other things, this appearance made me very convinced.

6. Compact body and easy to carry

When I bought the ebike, I fully considered the size of the ebike. In addition to being light, it should be easy to carry and transport. Because my house does not have a garage, I usually need to put it in the elevator and take it upstairs to charge. , That’s kind of troublesome. Fortunately, the DYU V1 uses a lightweight folding design, the handlebars can be bent and stored, reducing the space occupied.

The body length of the DYU V1 is only one meter, and it can be easily ridden in the elevator. After the handlebars are folded, it can even be easily put into the trunk of the car, which is very convenient when going out for fun.

Even the small pedals can be folded, and I really admire the designer’s ability to handle details

7. Better safety

In recent years, electric bike accidents have emerged in an endless stream. Many of them are caused by the braking system of the ebike. So after getting the bike, I tried it out and found that the front and rear brakes of the DYU V1 are very good & responsive. Also because of its light weight, the vehicle can be completely stopped within an extreme time to ensure the safety of the rider.

When parking, you can also use the remote control to lock the ebike with one button to completely lock the motor to avoid anyone take it away secretly. When the vehicle is touched by a person, an intelligent alarm will be issued, which is safer and more reliable.

8. Cycling experience and summary

Every time I meet friends, they will ask me about this ebike. It is more than enough for commuting and shopping for groceries and shopping. It does not need to be charged every day; the shock absorption is good, the sitting feeling is comfortable, and there is no worry about fatigue after long riding. For me, it fully met all my needs.
