About the Jetson Haze
The Jetson Haze is a relatively light, affordable folding electric bike that will suit your needs if traveling or commuting. The bike has a small range of 12-15 miles — but it’s more than enough for someone who may commute to work or school from the outskirts of town. For longer rides, you could buy a spare battery to extend the range.
With its small dimensions when folded down (30″x 18″x 28″), it can be kept in a cupboard or in the trunk of your car. The handlebars, frame, and pedals all fold down, as does the seat post.
For occasional use and as an affordable electric bike, the Haze does the job well. Folding small and giving a reasonable range for its size, this is a great machine for its price point and size.
Reasons to Buy
With its great price, the Jetson Haze is a bargain. Similar bikes can cost over $1,000, so the Haze is a great way to test the e-bike waters before jumping in on a more expensive model.
Another important feature of this electric bike is that the battery can be removed. This is useful in reducing the weight of the bike when being carried. It also allows battery charging without the machine being right next to the power socket.
It also comes with a lockable rear wheel that will prevent thieves from riding it — though if it isn’t locked to a secure post, it could still be carried away.
Things to Consider
A bigger battery could offer the rider more range. Having pointed this out, the Haze isn’t comfortable for long-distance rides, and together with the range, this makes it a good occasional-use electric bike.
While Jetson offers you the chance to purchase a second battery to improve range, this costs $129.99. Riders who don’t want to deal with the hassle of changing their battery on the go might be better off putting that money toward a bike with better range, such as the J8 Electric Bike. It comes with double the range — and a lower weight — for just $400 more.
