The practical folding mechanism and the impeccable handling of Dahon Boost convince in the test. The weak, grumpy unfortunately pedelec motor not.

What we like

  • excellent folding mechanism
  • amazingly comfortable seating position, safe handling, good directional stability

What we do not like

  • weak grumpy motor that is prone to vibrations
  • bad brakes

Pedals and handlebars fold, unlock the main frame and fold – finished. A few manipulations make Dahon bikes a compact, space-saving package for the small city apartment, the trunk or the web. To the Dahon Boost aspedelec to “electrify” the engineers built a Sunstar motor ans bottom bracket and a small battery that can be easily removed and used, behind the seat tube. Visually a successful engagement.

Less impressively presents itself in the test, the engine of the folding pedelec: Under loud vernehmlichem hum and finely vibrant it attracts, tinkers diligently, but without – only approximately heranzureichen to force other pedelec engines in the test – even in the strongest of the three levels of support , It is understandable that the Dahon Boost for driver kg and 85 kg body weight releases. Otherwise makes the lively Bike Fun: Agil, but well controlled, it always remains safely on course. The comfortable saddle is not the small battery – and the good handles invite for longer trips.
