Easily tackles a range of terrain
Comfortable and irons out road bumps
Folds away for simple storage
Very poor quality
My wife bought a pair of these in late 2019 for us to enjoy caravanning. Sadly this didn't happen, however i did try and use mine during the pandemic.
This is my first ebike and it is a huge disappointment.
I was cycling around 50k a week, but this in no longer possible. Last week the battery deteriorated so now I can only get 5k between charges, which now take all night.
Also the build quality is extremely poor. 4 spokes have broken, for no reason, both brake cables have snapped, and several times the front disk brake just locks up and won't come on.
My old bike is over 20 years old and i have never had these problems.

I'm impressed with my Leitner
I should really give my SuperT 4.5 stars because it's a great bike over all. So easy and fun to ride.
I bought this bike to be my only transport while I cruise on my yacht and needed a folding bike that I can store below, out of the weather and salt spray. I spen quitet some time researching folding e-bike options and ended up with my heart set on a Lietner. I discovered however that fully folded (with the handlebars down) it would be too wide to fit through my companion-way and doors. Aiming to resolve this problem I sent a number of emails...

Pretty Good and then...
The bike frame is heavy and therefore strong and sturdy. It runs well enough, although the gearing is a little light so it is very easy to pedal to the point where your pedalling is doing nothing at all. Good if you want to exert very little energy, but a little frustrating if you want to be able to have 'pedal assisted' power.
The bits and pieces (mudflaps, brakes, gears) are all a bit noisy clicking and crunching, but OK.
The worst part is the replacement battery - my battery died after a couple of years and will cost me nearly $AUD700 to replace. Whoa! That's half of what the bike cost me brand new. That is like buying a car and replacing the engine every couple of years.

This bike deals with all terrain from very rough bike tracks to off road. The dual suspension irons out all the bumps, and the various levels of pedal assist flattens out all the hills. We caravan a lot and its folding ability means that it fits neatly in the back of our SUV. I upgraded to the 16A/h battery and I consistently get well over 100km from each charge. The zero assist option really helps here as I use that for flat or downhill runs.

Suits us perfectly..
My husband and I purchased 2 Super T's so we can fold up and take away with us on holidays in our caravan. We are very impressed with the quality of the bikes. They were easy to assemble and look very "smik". We have not ridden bikes for years so once we got our "bike legs" back the pedal assist was magic. We would definitely recommend these bikes to anyone wanting to purchase folding bikes.

Excellent bike at a great value price!
Pedal assist is silky smooth. The dual suspension makes riding very comfortable. The build quality in general is really high. My flatmates responses were who needs a car! I went with the 10 amp hour battery and it was still about 80% after 6km ride with full pedal assist.

Didn't last 3 years
This bike deserves ZERO stars.
Firstly how did this lump of crap win an award?
I have been cycling for around 30 years and I have NEVER had such an inadequate inferior troublesome bike. I have had $50 gumtree bikes that outperform this piece of junk. I have years of experience building and maintaining bikes. And if you follow the leitner recommended maintenance schedule your bike is done for. I have gone above and beyond to keep this piece of crap running but ultimately the bike went in the skip at the end of October. 2 years and 7 months aft...er purchase. My daily commute is 4.8k to work. 1 decent hill, so mostly low and medium assist, until the hill climb up to work. When I got the bike 45-50k on the battery no problem. This lasted for around 18 months then the battery just went off a cliff. The range dropped to 5k, so I could (just) get to work, then dropped to 3k range making this bike absolutely useless. His crappy bike only has 500 cycles on its battery, much inferior to the majority of other ebikes that are 800-1000+ recharge cycles. Also at $400 and up for a replacement battery they are a rip off. Similar batteries for competitor bikes are less than half that price.

Having trouble getting up hills
Can someone tell me if this a usual problem I find myself getting off and having to walk up a steeper hill and throttle not helping either have I got a dodgy one?

Great electric bike
Picked up my bike on Friday, had a play on it Saturday and I am well pleased. An excellent bicycle. Wouldn’t hesitate buying another one later on. Will by one for my wife when they have smaller ones next year.
Purchased in July 2020.
Easy to put together and maintain. Charge twice per week and ride 15km per day on flat. Has kept me sane during lockdown. After sales service has been fast and amazing.

A second update on my SuperT.
Leitner would never have offered me any sort of guarantee if they'd known how I was going to treat my eBike and I have to say it is still performing brilliantly.
Bush tracks and rocky terrain, up hill and down dale, and no shortage of bingles, tangles and oopsies. It's lost a bit of bark, and so have I, but except for a few punctures, broken spokes and a torn seat we're both still doing fine.
(I admit it's no mudlark but sand, gravel and bulldust are a walk in the park.)
Certainly I'm not suggesting anyone take their Leitner way past a...ny intended specifications on reasonable use or wear and tear, as I continue to do, but I can promise that if I break this one I'll be buying another the same day. It's a beaut piece of machinery with excellent back-up service and I continue to recommend it.

A Great Bike
This is a great bike as it is a folding model so that I can use it when I go on holidays with my caravan or just riding around town shopping etc.It also has the added advantage of battery assist too make riding more enjoyable.
Purchased in April 2020 at Leitner for $1,352.00.
Had a problem and Leitner came through
I bought 2 of these bikes for my wife and myself. The black one was great but had a few problems with the red one. The support people at Leitner were very response and resolved my issues. I judge a company not by when things go right but by how they respond when things go wrong. And Leitner came through.

Easy to ride and as been a great help for me. It is amazing to ride great help for me going up hills. Thank you for all the help and returned phone calls and emails you have given me.

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Wayne - Oregon, USA
I spent month's reviewing 20 inch folding ebikes for trail riding in Oregon's desert's. I wanted full suspension, 2 inch tires rather than power-robbing "fatties", strong power for climbing (reasonably) sized hills with fenders/rack/lights and a realistic warrantee (Leitner's is 1 year) And, I wanted an affordable price.
Leitner's Super "T" does this!
Power was my most important ingredient for an ebike for trail riding. From studying them I learned that "watts" doesn't equal power - amps do (check the ebike power calculations online). Wat...ts equals "distance". So if your riding further than 25 miles get a 750+ watt battery. Leithner's 350 watts (650 max) rode me up a 5% hill on a paved golf-cart trail in second gear with the throttle maxed. I wasn't peddling hard, and seated! I weigh 209LBS. The #1 US advertised 20 inch foldable ebike with 500 watts (max- they don't tell you that) is $1600.00. Other compatible ebikes here are $1700 - $2500. I wanted fenders/lights/rack too? Nope, not standard equipment not even a kick-stand with others! Cup holder, NO! The Leitner comes with those except a cup holder that I added. Leitner service, there's that too. I broke a leaver since this "Neanderthal" didn't read the directions before I assembled it. I contacted Leitner and paid for the part, (my bad - not theirs). The headlight operations instructions were printed incorrectly. Before the bike arrived in two day's (!) I had a corrected copy of the light operations with a follow up email to confirm that the lights worked.
Purchased in January 2020.
A great bike
I did a lot of research and decided the the Leitner Super T was the best choice. I received it promptly last week and it is more than I had hoped for. It assembled easily. I had a problem figuring out how to turn the lights on and found I had not read the email with supplemental instructions. A small plastic part was cracked during shipping but in working condition. I received a replacement part within 4 days of my call to Leitner. The information and communication from Leitner is excellent. The features and specifications of the Super T ...is superior to other bikes I looked at especially considering a great price. I let a friend ride it and he was amazed how nice it was. I will be buying a Liselle this spring for my wife. We will be taking it on a cross country trip in our motor home . We are 68 years young! I do not think i have ever written a product review before but felt compelled to do so based on my satisfaction with the product.

The most fun I've had in years
I've done several good rides on the bike now and it's been fantastic. I used to be a "get to the end of the street and give up" cyclist but now I have the confidence to go wherever I want, knowing I'll be able to get back without too much effort. It arrived mostly set up and was easy enough to put together, but I still took it to the local bike shop for a once-over (since I don't know anything about bikes). It fits into the boot of my Kia Rio neatly. The 10A battery has been good; when it runs out it doesn't just stop cold. I got 38km the other...day - I weigh about 85kg and climbed nearly 150m, and the ride time was 2.5 hours. However, I decided I wanted the 16A battery, and larger wheels for when I'm riding places from home, and so I have just bought a brand new Venice as well. It arrived in 2 days - their courier company is great. Things I love on the Super T: - enormous seat - dual suspension: bumps aren't uncomfortable! - disc brakes: never had these before and boy do they work well. - adjustability - I'm far more confident in traffic now that I can use a throttle to get myself going rather than having to worry about having my feet in the right place at the right time to shoot off at the lights. Pedal assist kicks in quickly so it's really just that start. - easy controls

Researched for 2 years b4 we brought
Very happy with purchase.
Pickup from Depot - easy, great assistance. both cartons fit into my hatchback.
My son easily put both together.
After decades for me(10 yrs for my son)
We are riding 3/7 days a week-15km round trip today, using low assistance as needed. Feel improving in health and fitness while having fun.
My son enjoys.
Happily surprised how much look forward to riding and accomplishing so much more exploring where we can ride.
We ride on bike paths, dirt tracks and enjoy the dual suspension.

A great electric bike at a great price level
I waited to write this review until i had spent quite a bit of time using the bike. I can say after 750km in the first three months it has been a great experience overall. I initially had an issue with the brakes assembly but Leitner helped me out in getting the part replaced by a local shop quite easily. Since then i have ridden it to work mainly around 8km each way. The bike has been great, i arrive work without being sweaty which is the main reason i wanted to go electric. It allows me to get some supplemental exercise, not be on public tran...sport and arrive to work quicker! I usually recharge after about 50KM of riding in high mode, i pedal all the time and quite fast as i like to max out the speed on this thing. It's been great, very comfortable, brakes well, power is good on the motor and it tackles most hills with ease. Only suggestion i would have for the next model is that the gearing is too short, when using high power mode you either have to pedal SUPER fast or you peddling doesn't really add much push as it's reached the end of it's use by about 30km/h. Taller gearing would alleviate any issues i have with this bike. Would reccomend this to anyone as it's $500 cheaper than equivalent E-bikes on the market.
You little Ripper
Great bike, took it for my first ride today, easy to fold up for carrying in my car, also I have a medical condition and found it easy to ride with pedal assist or using the throttle, I am looking forward to many more rides as being a photographer I now can go to places that was not accessible before.
Questions & Answers
What is the distance from the top of the pedal at its lowest point to the top of the seat ?
It varies from 60-70cm depending on the seat height
I would NOT recommend this bike.
It’s is terrible quality, after sales care is nonexistent, and replacements are exorbitantly expensive. $400 for a new battery, $300 fir a new wheel.

I have a Super T that was purchased in November 2020.When riding there is a high pitched clicking sound coming from the back wheel.I have adjusted the De Railer but the noise is still there.I think it is the spokes so I have inspected them and none are loose.Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so what is the remedy.
Thanks for your message.
