The Smacircle S1 brands itself as "the world’s most compact and lightweight ebike" with a form that can be folded to fit into a backpack.

Although many bikes are designed to be lightweight, cost-effective and environmentally friendly methods of transportation, their forms can be still quite cumbersome to store when not in use. The S1 sets itself apart as an electric bike that weighs in at just 15 pounds, yet is capable of reaching speeds of up to over 12 miles per hour. The lithium-ion battery that powers the bike can also be charged quite rapidly in less than three hours, and it also boasts a USB charging port to power one's mobile devices.

The bike also includes other impressive features, such as app connectivity, which allows owners to monitor the battery charge, control the lights and remotely lock or unlock the device.
