Fiido D3 Pro Electric Bike Review: Foldable, Small and Powerful Bike
Fiido D3 Pro is a small yet powerful city bike that offers exceptional range, smooth riding experience, and a few very interesting features. I have a pretty good time with the bike. This is the smallest ever bike that I can ride.
Let’s inspect this cool tech.
In a hurry, read this short overview stating the pros and cons of Fiido D3 Pro.
- Suitable for kids and adults
- Easy to assemble
- Great range and speed
- Built-in air pump
- Weak brakes
- Big Crankset
- Not so portable
- Pedal’s build quality is not good
Fiido D3 Pro – Price
Price is a decisive element for many people; often, the bike costs quite a lot and is out of the range of many folks. But Fiido D3 Pro is a mid-range 600$ electric bike. The price is similar to Mi Scooter Pro, and the performance is better.
So, D3 Pro is an excellent alternative for e-scooters with the huge benefit of being able to pedal the bike when the battery is empty.
Unboxing and Assembly
The unboxing experience is good; the scooter is packed in a thick cardboard box. The pack weighs 20kg, and the size is similar to an electric scooter’s box. Inside, items are well packed up top we have some accessories like pedals and seat. Lifting the cushions will give you the first glimpse of Fiido D3 pro.
The scooter comes pretty much assembled. Firstly, unfold the handlebar and park the bike on the stand. Then screw the pedals, put the saddle in its place and adjust it according to your height. Lastly, adjust the handlebar according to your size; the bike is ready to move.
In the box, we have D3 Pro, charger, adapter, pedal, open spanner, Allen keys and fenders.
Appearance and Build Quality
Fiido D3 Pro is a beautiful electric bike; it is among the best that I have reviewed. It has a mini bike like appearance, but a 188cm tall person like me can easily ride it. There is a white version of the bike, but I would choose black as it perfectly blends with the black cables.
The bike’s design is incredible; it has a solid frame with a beautiful glossy finish and the Fiido logo in its iconic colour. The ergonomic design of the saddle perfectly complements the bike’s appearance. Big crankset is a bit annoying but looks good. Strong tires can be slightly big and thick, but it’s a 600$ bike; we can’t expect more.
The handlebar has quite a lot of controls; we have the acceleration control and brake lever on the right. While on the left side, we have an LED screen, headlight, horn control and the other brake. The screen has two buttons to shift between speed modes.
Overall, the scooter is solid, the aluminium construction is good, and the electric bike will work nicely for a long time. My only concern is the handlebar; it is designed to be lightweight and practical, so don’t stress the handlebar too much. Moreover, the left pedal was faulty as it broke apart after a few days.

Fiido D3 Pro – Features
Fiido D3 Pro is a mid-range high-quality electric bike. The riding experience is fantastic; the range and speed are incredible. Let’s talk about some prominent features of the bike.
The best feature of the bike is the built-in pump. The saddle has a pump, and it is effortless to use. Take out the saddle, unscrew the bottom lid, and a pipe will come out. Pull the tube and attach it to the tire’s valve and start pumping. It is a highly functional and efficient feature; it makes me think why other companies have never thought about it.
A 250W brushless motor powers the bike, which can accelerate up to 32km/h. The power delivery is consistent, and I don’t feel the power is lowered when the battery is low. The uphill performance is also good. Moreover, the range is pretty good as well; Fiido claims that the range is 60km. The battery loses one bar after 10 km, and the total bars are five.
Another great feature is the design. It is so well designed that a full-grown person of 190cm or a kid of 100cm, 120cm can easily and comfortably ride the bike.
Fiido D3 Pro – Performance
Three tasks to do before reviewing the performance; mount the pedals, make sure they are well tightened, check the tire pressure, and charge the battery.
A 250W brushless motor powers the bike, which can accelerate up to 32km/h. The power delivery is consistent, and I don’t feel the power is lowered when the battery is low. The uphill performance is also good. Moreover, the range is pretty good as well; Fiido claims that the range is 60km. The battery loses one bar after 10 km, and the total bars are five. So 60km range is possible with some leg workout is excellent.
The Comfort level is good. Ride is not very smooth because there are no suspensions and the tires are not thick, but the performance is still satisfactory. Moreover, the saddle is soft and well designed; it has a thick layer of foam that absorbs most bumps.
The first safety feature is brakes. I am not quite impressed by the brakes; the metallic pads are electric scooter grade. So, it’s not offering the best braking experience.
The front headlight is pretty good; it is bright. The rear light is under the seat, it’s not very bright but does the job.
D3 Pro is not very portable, mainly because of its tires. Moreover, it weighs more than 17kg, and its length is 125cm.
Fiido D3 Pro – Drawbacks
There are few drawbacks that I found during the test.
- There is no odometer to measure distance.
- A smartphone app can be helpful.
- Broken pedal has raised some questions.
Fiido D3 Pro is an acceptable electric bike considering the price, performance and features. It can be used as a daily driver with a few upgrades like the brakes. D3 Pro can be an excellent alternative for electric scooters because of its better range, comfort and battery endurance.
