The Montague M-E1 is the world’s first full-size performance foldable e-bike. A revolutionary new e-bike designed for both urban riding and trekking, the M-E1 is equipped with a Shimano Steps E6100 mid-drive motor and a Deore drivetrain, and folds in seconds with a single quick release.
With full size 700c wheels, front suspension, and standard components, the M-E1 offers the same ride quality as a non-folding e-bike, but can be stored in the closet, train, or car trunk, keeping it safe from theft and out of the elements. Once folded, the bike can be rolled for easy transport.
LOCAL PICKUP: The M-E1 can be purchased online for pickup from your local bike shop. Your bike will be waiting for you fully assembled and ready to ride. Choose the “Local Pickup” option during checkout and we’ll contact you to determine the most convenient shop for pickup. If there’s not a Montague dealer nearby, we can work with any bike shop!

This folding bike with a step-through frame is the most comfortable folding ebike I’ve ridden. It’s hard not to feel impressed when you hop on the M-E1’s saddle. There’s no part of it that feels rickety, unlike some other folding bikes I’ve tested.
Overall, the ride quality and build quality are excellent, making it easily one of the most comfortable folding bikes we’ve yet ridden.
The power kicks in gently and predictably, and there’s plenty of it to get you rolling. The M-E1 flattened every hill we threw at it with aplomb.
Industry-leading folding design allows the bike to become very compact and stay folded without rattling or coming undone.
Most folding ebikes aren’t as comfortable as this one!
The folding e-bike offers the same ride quality as a non-folding e-bike, but with the added benefits of easier storage.
A single quick release allows the frame to fold.
The weight of the bike is supported by the kickstand,
so you don’t need to lift or balance the bike while folding.
A second QR folds the handlebars for an even more compact size.
Why a Folding Bike?
The M-E1 comes equipped with front
and rear lights, full-coverage fenders,
and an integrated rear cargo rack.
3 Pedal Assist Modes
The handlebar mounted display acts as a cycle computer and control unit for the drive system. The LED display provides battery levels and ride data while allowing you to switch between Eco, Normal, and High power assist modes on the fly. An additional walk assist mode makes pushing your bike effortless, even uphill.
Customize and Update with E-Tube
The Shimano E-Tube Project software for PC and iOs/Android allows you to update your drive system’s firmware, customize settings, and get useful information by connecting with your bike through an easy to navigate portal . The E-Tube Ride app turns your smart phone into a cycle computer with route mapping and real-time display of ride data .
