Himiway D5 Zebra Review | A BIG E-Bike With BIG Test Results

What good is any bike if it doesn’t trip properly? So, let’s speak in regards to the elements and options that make up how the Himiway D5 Zebra rides and feels.

First issues first, we should focus on the elephant within the room, that massive ol’ seat.

At first look, this seat resembles extra of a top-secret stealth bomber than it does a bicycle saddle. It’s longer, wider, and thicker than almost any seat we’ve got seen exterior of seaside cruisers and you may say, all of us right here on the workplace have already got a love/hate relationship with it. On one hand, the seat feels super-comfortable when you find yourself cruising on throttle solely. However, when you begin pedaling, the broader entrance finish of the seat edges begin to rub your interior thighs and it’s not the perfect feeling, particularly for a protracted trip. We expect it’s a type of seats that folk will both love or hate relying on their private using model. And, on the intense facet, contact factors like seats, grips, and pedals are tremendous straightforward (and cheap) to swap out for one thing that you simply like higher.

Himiway provides the D5 Zebra in two body choices, a excessive step or a step although. The highstep is rated to suit riders starting from 5’3″ ~ 6′ 5″ whereas the step-through model has just a little extra room because it matches riders starting from 5 ‘1” to six’ 5″.

Up within the cockpit, you might have ergo fake leather-based grips, on the left you might have the push throttle and PAS controls. Within the heart, you might have a full-color show that we expect is very nice wanting and might even be seen properly in direct daylight. The handlebar has no adjustability in stem peak or attain however at 5 ’11, it felt tremendous in all my using and I by no means felt prefer it wanted any changes.

The D5’s entrance suspension fork is a coil spring fork made by TRAMA and has 95mm of journey with a 9x135mm quick-release attachment. General the fork does job of consuming up impacts in your trip and will do most folk fairly properly.

Down under you might have Kenda Krusade knobby tires that we’ve got seen earlier than in our testing and total do job. Understandably, for those who trip this bike on pavement, you should have highway noise from the tires, however that’s to be anticipated.

The 750W motor is mounted within the rear wheel hub and total could be very quiet. As we’ve got referenced a couple of occasions in areas like pace and vary testing, we did discover the torque sensor to be a bit choosy on when it delivers energy and usually has a tough time maintaining with our precise pedaling stress with its energy supply. It’s actually not a deal breaker for us as all torque sensors have a little bit of their very own ‘persona’ and that was simply our ideas on this one. General, for those who put down the stress, the motor kicks on and provides its pedaling help, and for those who want extra, simply bump up your effort.

For these of you who prefer to make your bike as versatile as your route, we expect you’ll recognize the added perks like front-to-back lighting and fenders in addition to the rear rack. It simply provides some practicality for folk who need to maximize the skills of their trip.
