The ease of a bike that folds down origami-style to fit under your desk, RV, or into a small place is difficult to match. There is a solid reason why electric foldable bikes are becoming more and more common in urban areas, on buses, trains, and in office buildings and campers. A folding electric bike can make your camping trip a lot more exciting.
Meet the Vtuvia Antelope puts all types of laziness justifications to rest, as it allows them to enjoy the excitement of being out and about, particularly younger children who tend to spend more time at home. And upon receiving the all-new Antelope folding electric bike from Vtuvia, our test team put it into some testing phases for a while. The Antelope tries to maximize the potential of an electric fat bike with a folding mechanism. So, here’s our impression and thoughts on the Vtuvia Antelope.
VTUVIA SX20 Folding Fat Tire E-Bike
Vtuvia comes with a strong focus on producing affordable, rugged all-terrain electric bikes. That’s exactly what you should expect from the Vtuvia Antelope.

At first impression, it’s clear that Vtuvia understands the importance of comfort and convenience. Because of this, this bike is available in a low-step-through model that is height-friendly. The concept here is straightforward: riding a bike should be enjoyable, and getting on one should not be difficult. And we didn’t face any troubles either.
Being powered by a 750-watt brushless motor with a 6-speed pedal assist, this e-bike maximizes endless possibilities. And the Antelope provided us with an excellent reason to escape everything and begin pedaling. When we put the Antelope on trial, it could travel at the highest speed of 35 kph when ascending and descending slopes in the cities. This bike goes one step further to become an excellent commuter e-bike, demonstrating its continued adaptability.
There are only a few e-bikes as versatile as the Antelope. During its testing period, we found the traits of the fat tires more realistic and practical than gimmicks. We also found these tires damn functional for utility. And not to mention, even when we rode the bike on uneven trails, the entire ride was more stable because of its tire and excellent ground control.
With a large payload capacity of 120 kg, carrying loads was a piece of cake on this e-bike. And despite having a straight and tidy body by default, the optional rack and basket can be fitted for better functionality and to carry enormous loads. Speaking of utility, this e-bike could fold practically in half and fit neatly into a truck, bus, or subway is simply too good of a deal to pass up. In fact, the Antelope seemed like a real catch when it came to finding a parking solution for the city. All you have to do was fold it up and keep it inside our house or office.
The Antelope is a fantastic commuter due to its comfortable riding for longer routes and adequate power delivery. And Antelope is a total city lad, as we could travel 70 kilometers, thanks to its 6-speed pedal assist, and 40 kilometers on full electricity.
Taking a closer look at its body, we discovered a dependable LG 48-volt battery that was cleverly concealed behind the step-through frame. What a fantastic and sensible way to use the 6061 aluminum frame.
It also features Logan Hydraulic Disc Brakes truly astounded us; every time we applied the brakes, they knew when to stop and hold on to the ground. As a result, riders gain more confidence in their ability to brake precisely and make the bold decision to travel further, maybe even in the wilderness. You would be impressed with Vtuvia’s compliance with these substantial brakes, which have the carrying ability for firm braking even with heavy weight.
Lastly, let’s round up this review with the looks as Italians do. These VTUVIA SX20 Folding Fat Tire E-Bike, which comes in three eye-catching colors, Shiny red, green, and Silver, are inspired by the Italian heritage and roots of Vtuvia. And that was everything in our review of the Vtuvia Antelope.
