The Dillenger Explorer is one of our entry level folding electric bikes featuring a Shimano six speed gear set, folding frame and handlebars, removable and lockable battery, pedal assist and LED battery level indicator. It's one of most practical e-bikes and is designed with our commuter customers in mind. A custom made pannier rack means you can easily transport cargo with you on your way to work. The explorer folds away in only seconds without any tools to fit neatly into the back of a car, on public transport or into storage. The Explorer arrives to you door with everything you need (bike, charger, tools). It's one of our easiest bikes to use and is priced very competitively.

Product Description


20 Inches of practical

Are you looking for an electric folding bike that doesn't feel or look like a clown bike? 20" wheels are a good compromise between rolling smoothness and compactness. Smaller than 20" and you will start to feel every detail of every bump in the road. Larger than 20" and you will be limited to where the bike will fit when folded. The combination of these factors make the Explorer one of the most practical electric bikes in our range. Many customers have purchased the Explorer just because the size is more manageable when riding, not just because it can collapse into a smaller size.

All Rounder

Need to pop down to the shops? You can take advantage of the heavy duty rear pannier rack by purchasing our custom designed pannier bags (sold separately). Do you ride public transport to work? The Explorer electric folding bike is the perfect travel enhancement, jump off the bus, unfold the bike – you will be at work in no time! If you get to a hill, no problem! The combination of the geared hub motor and the Shimano 6 speed gear set will make all those daunting hills easily manageable.

Geared hub motor torque

Geared hub motors have become the most common drive system on quality electric bikes for good reason. They're silent, reliable, maintenance free and produce an excellent amount of torque whilst being compliant to 'street legal' electric bike laws. The geared hub motor is perfectly ideal for folding electric bikes because the motor takes up no extra room and doesn't get in the way of folding the bike. The Explorer's geared hub motor will provide power to get up those annoying hills, or to power you ahead when carrying a full load of groceries. It's the perfect companion!

Save Money

Saving money is one of the great benefits when it comes to buying an e-bike. Yet it becomes a fallacy if the bike costs more than your last car! That's why we continuously sell out of our Explorer line. This model delivers the same reliability of a much more expensive model but is reasonably priced, making it a win-win! Why spend your hard-earned money on parking and fuel? The Explorer is a very realistic replacement for your car. With our 12Ah sealed lead acid battery providing an excellent range over any terrain, this folding electric bike is the smart choice when it comes to transport alternatives.

What it says on the tinReview by Jeremy
Functions as Described
Overall Rating
I have had the Explorer for a month now and it has changed the way I think of cycling. For trips to town it is better than driving as it is quicker and no problems about parking. Although generally I am very happy with the bike, I'm not crazy about the range, much less than anticipated and the weight.

A good commuting tool -it is a shame that the UK weather is not a little more co-operative! (Posted on 24/08/2015)

Good bike for the priceReview by Yvonne Scouller

Overall Rating
This is a good bike for the price. The front wheel brake needs to be used with caution. Heavy to lift into a car boot but removing the battery makes it more manageable for anyone who isn’t strong. (Posted on 22/03/2015)

I just got a unit in Umina Beach, NSW and got not much cash left to buy a car. Explorer is the best choice for me to solve my travelling of 2km to work every day. In addition, I also like to cycle to the beach during my off days, so Explorer is my best friend now! (Posted on 30/07/2014)
Great for exploring country townsReview by Marja Parker

Overall Rating
Hi, my wife and I purchased a couple of Dillenger Explorers to use when we take our motor home to tour our fabulous country. We found them great for exploring country towns and because we bought a spare battery for each bike found that a quick changeover and longer kilometres were made possible. Thanks heaps Dillenger!

Easy parking at shopping centresReview by Wolfgang Kuhle

Overall Rating
The reason why I like the Electric bike is the freedom it offers me to be able to travel around with the minimum of fuss. Easy parking at shopping centres and you see so much more from a bike than when you are sitting in a car.
