A Fifield Best-Seller!
Already into its 3rd generation, the Fifield Jetty 4.0 is a top-notch folding bike that has proven Fifield’s quality and performance in all areas. The Jetty 4.0 packs many features for safety, power assist settings, and last but not least – glow in the dark frame! Backing you up in the dark further with front and rear lights, the Jetty has it all! Let’s take a closer look at all the specs and more details of Fifield’s Jetty 4.0 below.
First and most noticeable feature is the lightweight of only 40lbs. Especially for a 350W being a bit larger, the weight is still lower than most folders in the Jetty 4.0’s class. You can pack the Jetty anywhere you go in the car, securely keep it in your apartment, or any other tight space that the Jetty can slide into. In 10 seconds or less, you will have your bike folded back out into position to ride away wherever you please! Also included rear rack lets you take your groceries or lunch out for the day.
Lately Fold up types have been catching my eye for my soon to happen trip back to Thailand and abroad since it’s so light and transportable. I will follow up with an article in the future regarding how this works because many people want to know about battery legalities overseas and all that jazz. This article will be updated with a link to that new article when it is available as soon as possible.
GLOW IN THE DARK FRAME – And Tires Too!
My favorite safety feature of the Jetty 4.0 is the glow in the dark frame. WHAT? That’s right! You and your sweet ass will be visible 100% in all directions for other road users and pedestrians at night and through tunnels that obstruct sunlight. This is a cool feature that may be seen as “Shiny” to thieves and no-do-gooders so I personally would take this bike with me inside and out everywhere I go.
A plus to the Jetty 4.0 is the included Front and Rear LED light, this compliments the bike in a way that makes it look like something from a sci-fi novel or movie. Asides from cool looks, your visibility is also increased for 360 degree coverage shining a reliable illuminated presence on the road. That’s not all, the Kenda tires are also reflective and grip the road confidently. What more could be done to this bike, besides mounting an aircraft light onto it?
For even better safety and visibility at night, wear a reflective vest that is lightweight and doesn’t over encumber you. Check out my helpful article on Lights and Reflectors here for more safety tips and how to best utilize your lights for maximum effectiveness during the night.
Strong 350W Motor
Most folding bikes use a 250 Watt Motor to compensate for weight and bulkiness. Your Jetty 4.0 here packs a more powerful yet just as compact 350 Watt Rear Hub Motor which will throw you surprisingly up the road to a top speed of 20 miles or 32 kilometers per hour! This is the speed limit for E- bikes here in British Columbia, so you can rock all the power of a regular size E-Bike with all the transportable features of a folding type. In the States and other countries, your speed may be higher!
Samsung 36V 10.4 Ah Lithium Battery
The power plant for the 350W Motor is a Samsung 36V 10.4Ah Battery. This type will give the rider a maximum range with assist up to 30 – 45 miles or 48 – 72 kilometers. That’s the regular range you would be getting with a regular E-bike like the Fifield Seaside! When using the throttle on the Jetty, this range will be affected depending on the amount of time the throttle is used, rider weight, wind, etc.
For smooth derailleur operation and optimal performance is the Shimano Tourney SIS 8-Speed Gears. It has the shifter on the right side as usual and is a twist operated type. Use your wrist to adjust to the level you want on the hills and flats.
Smart Power-Assist Settings
Fifield’s Jetty 4.0 is mounted with a BM5S King Meter LCD Display that tunes your assist setting to 3 different levels – low, medium and high. It also will display you speed, remaining range / charge, and operates the rear and front light. This can be later set up with an optional USB charge port.
Another note about the motor is it’s incredibly silent operation. E-Bikes are quiet already, whereas the Jetty 4.0 Is almost unidentifiable as an E-Bike compared to a regular folding bicycle. The only difference is how you hilarious you will look when flying up a hill on such a small bike! And always wear a helmet, the torque can be surprising for some people and catch you off-guard!
Mechanical Tektro Disc Brakes
For reliable stopping and maneuverability, the Jetty 4.0 is equipped with Mechanical Tektro Disc Brakes that take on all weather and temperatures. Being in its 3rd generation, the Jetty also set up with internal gearing for protection from the occasional fall or mishap when a friend is trying it for example.
Backed by a 2 Year Warranty!
With a history of reliability and proven quality, the only thing that could make the Jetty 4.0 even a better deal is the 2 Year Warranty. Fifield got it right in the first gen, I love seeing companies that outdo themselves in terms of customer approach ability regarding price and warranty.

Fifield didn’t miss a beat on this one – the Jetty 4.0 outclasses most of its competitors for the amazing attention to details regarding not just its safety features, but also in terms of power to weight ratio and the incredible range you get out of the juicy Samsung Lithium Battery! Kudos to Fifield for such care and the improvements made to each generation making it even better than the last.
The Jetty gets a Radical rating of 100/100, this is the most loaded fold up bike I have ever seen! The only thing that one would maybe consider as “missing” since it’s so packed is a USB charge port (An optional feature which would have been nice, but oh well). Still, worthy of the 100/100 rating nonetheless.
