The Dillenger Explorer is a folding electric bike with a six speed Shimano gear set. Folding away in less than 10 seconds, the Explorer has been proven popular amongst professional commuters to supplement their public transport to work.




Six Speed

Are you looking for an electric folding bike that is a little bigger than our 16” Cheetah? Then our 20” Explorer is for you. We have designed this bike with 20” wheels and a six-speed Shimano gear set for those of you that want to add a little cycling to your journey and mix in some great exercise – But still like some pedal assist for those troublesome hills or just cruising about.

All Rounder

Need to pop down to the shops? No problem, just install the pannier bags (sold separately) on the custom pannier rack and you are on your way. Do you ride public transport to work? The Explorer electric folding bike is the perfect travel enhancement, jump off the bus, unfold the bike – you will be at work in no time!


The Explorer, designed with larger wheels than the 16” Cheetah, provides a great level of rolling smoothness in comparison. Paired with the whisper quiet rear hub motor, internally geared for more torque – the Dillenger Explorer is so much fun; you will not want to drive anywhere again. We are sure it is one of the best folding electric bikes around, especially at this price.

Save Money

Do not spend your hard-earned money on parking and fuel. The Explorer is a very realistic replacement for your car. With our upgraded 12Ah sealed lead acid battery giving you an extended range of up to 50 km and a top speed of up to 15.5 mph, this folding electric bike is the smart choice when it comes to transport alternatives.

What it says on the tinReview by Jeremy

Overall Rating
I have had the Explorer for a month now and it has changed the way I think of cycling. For trips to town it is better than driving as it is quicker and no problems about parking. Although generally I am very happy with the bike, I'm not crazy about the range, much less than anticipated and the weight.

A good commuting tool -it is a shame that the UK weather is not a little more co-operative! (Posted on 8/24/2015)

Good bike for the priceReview by Yvonne Scouller

This is a good bike for the price. The front wheel brake needs to be used with caution. Heavy to lift into a car boot but removing the battery makes it more manageable for anyone who isn’t strong. (Posted on 3/22/2015)

I just got a unit in Umina Beach, NSW and got not much cash left to buy a car. Explorer is the best choice for me to solve my travelling of 2km to work every day. In addition, I also like to cycle to the beach during my off days, so Explorer is my best friend now! (Posted on 7/30/2014)
Great for exploring country townsReview by Marja Parker

Hi, my wife and I purchased a couple of Dillenger Explorers to use when we take our motor home to tour our fabulous country. We found them great for exploring country towns and because we bought a spare battery for each bike found that a quick changeover and longer kilometres were made possible. Thanks heaps Dillenger!

Easy parking at shopping centresReview by Wolfgang Kuhle

The reason why I like the Electric bike is the freedom it offers me to be able to travel around with the minimum of fuss. Easy parking at shopping centres and you see so much more from a bike than when you are sitting in a car.
