Torrot Citysurfer - Fold/Compact Very Good, Easy Good

A Spanish high-flyer in fresh Superman blue. It surprised with plenty of power and solid handling on all of the test routes. “Very Good” in the Folding and Compact product group.

A folding pedelec with clean lines, and with its fresh colours it won the sympathy of many of the test riders. Weighing just 21.1 kg, but still with very stable ride characteristics, it scored well with the test riders even at 50 km/h downhill. The compact Bafang rear wheel hub motor does sterling work, and on the touring route it achieved an exceptional U-factor of 2.04. For such a compact bike its values for the Hills section, at 1.89, and for the City route, at 1.43, are more than good! The drive system is of the distinctly audible type, although it was rated by the test riders as acceptable. Compromises in the control system are also excusable by the price: the rotation sensor means that the cut-in and cut-out of the motor is somewhat abrupt. But operating the bike is intuitive and self-explanatory. A carrier rack, available as an optional accessory for 59.99 Euro, was fitted to our test bike. Available to fit it are a top case and even a child seat, although you should keep an eye on the maximum rated payload of 99.9 kg.
