The rapid growth of fat-tire folding e-bike is great news for cyclists. As mentioned in my previous reviews, this is a great solution for anyone who wants comfortable ride over long distance and the best thing is that it is small enough to fit in car trunks. I was excited to try the ENGWE Engine Pro 750W e-bike as it seems to be a perfect one based on the design and specifications.

Similar to many other e-bikes, the ENGWE requires some assembling process before you can ride it. However, it won’t take your long. The whole unboxing and assembling process took me less than 30 minutes. Basically, you will just need to take everything out of the box, install the handlepost, handlebar, front wheel, fender, and LED light. I only had one problem during the setup as I installed the handlepost conversely; This makes the cockpit length very short and I always had to sit upright. I only figured it out and fixed it weeks later.
The Engine Pro is quite a heavy and bulky bike. It is foldable but the folded size is quite big and I really don’t want to carry it to public transportation. Carrying the 83-lbs weight around is troublesome for most of us. Having said that, the foldable design is really helpful when you have little space to store the bike or when you need to put it in your car trunk.
Notably, the bike comes with all essential accessories like LED front and rear lights, fenders, a sturdy rear rack, and a beautiful LCD display. I also like the clean design with battery hidden inside the main frame; The battery is still removeable after folding the bike in half.
The ENGWE uses 20-inch fat tires which might create significant rolling resistance. Of course, you can still pedal the bike without using any electric assistance but it will be very slow and exhausting. Fortunately, the torque created by the 750W motor makes any resistance disappeared. Therefore, I always use the bike in pedal-assist mode; There are 5 levels of assists, so you can always find the suitable boost. The 750W hub motor can assist you to reach the maximum speed of 28 mph. And when you get tired, you totally can stop pedaling and press the thumb throttle to get into full-throttle mode.
I’ve ridden a lot of fat-tire e-bike in the last few years and I love them so much. The ENGWE even brings the comfort to the next level with dual suspensions on the front and on the back. The rides were so smooth even when I rode through the woods or on gravel roads. Moreover, I don’t have to worry much about battery life since it could last 50-60 miles in pedal-assist mode.
This seems to be a perfect e-bike for most average consumers. Unfortunately, it suddenly stopped working during my recent ride; I fully recharge the battery but the controller is no longer powered on. I contacted customer service and hopefully they could fix the issue soon.
- Clean design
- Great battery range
- Basic accessories are included
- Comfortable riding
- Reasonable price
- Heavy and bulky
- My controller no longer powers on
Overall, the ENGWE Engine Pro 750W was among the best fat-tire e-bikes I’d ever used until it stopped working. Probably I was unlucky with a defective unit and you can give it a try as it is priced reasonably at around $1,500.
