What is the right folding e-bike for you?
Accolmile, ADO A20F and ENGWE EP2 PRO
Today I want to do a quick side-by-side comparison of these three folding fat bikes. The Accolmile, the ADO A20F, and the ENGWE EP-2 Pro.
If you want to know more about each bike, this channel has a dedicated video review of these three bikes.
Before we get started, I’m not going to make this video to decide which folding electric bike is best for you. We’ll do a side-by-side comparison of the three e-bikes, discussing their key elements, frame size, and a few other features.
Then you can decide which folding electric bike is right for you.
These are all fat-tire foldable bikes that share very similar designs and components but are actually very different from each other.
Let’s start with the hub motor. Accolmile comes with BAFANG 48V, 750W 80Newton-meter motor, 45km/h top speed when unlocked.
The ADO A20F comes with a 36V, 250W unbranded motor with a peak power of 500W. The top speed when unlocked is 35 km/h.
The ENGWE EP-2 Pro also comes with a 48V, 750W, unbranded motor and has no torque value listed. The top sleep is 41 Km/h.
Both the Accolmile and Engwe have 750W motors, but the Accolmile hub has more torque.
Good for some, push bumps may be bad for others, and the Engwe motor is more subtle and offers an easier driving experience.
The ADO A20F motor is smaller and more subtle. It makes for a very easy and comfortable ride.
Let’s go to the battery. The three models share the same battery compartment and battery case design, but are not the same size and are not compatible with each other.
They are removable and can be charged on the bike or elsewhere.
Accolmile comes with a Samsung 48V, 14.5Ah battery and has the largest battery compartment.
The Engwe comes with an unbranded 48V, 12.8Ah battery and the battery compartment is the same as the ADO A20F. The ADO comes with an unbranded 36V 10.4Ah battery.
It is a well-known fact that the larger the battery capacity, the longer the cruising range, but the performance of the motor must also be considered.
So, there is a huge battle here.
What makes them so similar? Frame design!
If three bikes weren’t sided, you might think they were all the same, but they’re not. Quite different actually.
The Accolmile bike is bigger than the others. It has a rear suspension and a much larger battery compartment than the others.

The EP-2 Pro is very similar to the Accolmile, but smaller and without rear suspension.
The A20F is the smallest, has no rear suspension, and is the lightest one.
There are many adjustments in saddle and handlebar height, Therefore, it fits almost all riders.
The lack of rear suspension is well compensated by fat tires.
When transporting these bikes in a car, it’s important to consider their folded size. They’re definitely not small, and they’re not highly portable.
All three models come with 20″ x 4 all-terrain tires that provide excellent grip and a stable ride. Accolmile comes with regular spoked wheels and the two other bikes come with aluminum alloy rims.
The spoke wheels are easy to keep and the one-piece wheels are maintenance-free. They have very similar handlebars and all fold in the same way with the same settings.
The Engwe and ADO come with a half-twist throttle and the Accolmile with a thumb throttle.
The Accolmile is the only model without cruise control which is very comfortable.
The display also varies greatly from bike to bike. Accolmile features a large color LCD display for easy access to key settings.
Engwe comes with a monochrome display, and adjusting settings isn’t difficult.
ADO comes with a small monochrome display. Settings can be very difficult to manage, but this is the smallest and most discreet display.
About the brakes…
The Accolmile comes with Tektro hydraulic brakes, and the Engwe and ADO come with Zoom mechanical brakes.
The front suspension is “ok” on all three models. Accolmile front forks offer stiffness and rebound adjustment, the EP-2 Pro has two levels of adjustment, locked or unlocked, and the ADO has no adjustments.
The quality of these 3 bikes is very good. The main difference between them is the price.
Accolmile cost $1,800, the ADO A20F $1,120 and the Engwe EP-2 Pro $999,99
That’s all for today.
I hope this video helps you in your purchasing decision.
I would love to know what you think of these bikes, and if you have any questions you know what to do!
