Himiway A7 Pro Review: Full Suspension and Then Some

The Himiway A7 Pro is a whole lot of ebike. At $2399, this is a premium-priced commuter ebike, packed with features and name-brand components and available in five colors.

Full suspension makes this weighty 77 lb step-thru comfortable and the dropper seatpost, enables quick adjustment for a range of rider sizes above 5’5″. And it has the capacity to carry up to 300lb.

Keeping Up The Suspension

There’s an adaptable SR Suntour X1 32 air suspension front fork, featuring a lockout dial, rebound adjustment, and even Boost spacing for increased strength. The suspension allows up 120mm of travel. You’ll want a shock pump to dial in the suspension for your weight (or have a bike shop assist) but overall, this is a high-quality suspension fork which was great to see.

Although the rear suspension is not a familiar brand, it’s still a fully adjustable air suspension, enhancing comfort. What’s unique here is not necessarily that it’s a full suspension electric bike, but that Himiway managed to still make it a step-thru frame, meaning it’s more accessible to get on and off.

Through axles at the front and rear are sturdier than quick releases and ensure a precision fit for the wheels. Himiway equipped the A7 Pro with street tires from Chao Yang, 27.5”x2.4” with reflective sidewalls.

Better Brakes and Shifter

Quality Shimano MT200 hydraulic brakes are paired with Shimano RT26 180mm rotors. And the Shimano Alivio 9-speed trigger shifter with matching derailleur are enhanced components too.

An 11-34 tooth Shimano cassette, with 44 tooth single-sided metal chainring at the front complete the set. A shift sensor, which cuts motor power with every gear change, is a necessary addition to extend the life of the drivetrain.

Power Points

The mid-drive, Ananda M100, motor carries the Himiway mark and provides 500W of power, all transmitted via the gears and chain. It is activated by a 48V, 14.4Ah battery, which can be charged on or off the bike, using an included 2A charger. Ananda isn’t a brand we’ve tested out before but it functioned as expected. Certainly more power than the 36V mid-drives we often see but not overpowering either. Our first-person riding footage demonstrates this further.

A torque sensor amplifies human effort and there are five levels of Pedal Assist and a walk mode. The Himiway A7 Pro includes a throttle, which has a fixed upper speed limit of 20 mph. It ships as a Class 2 ebike, peaking at 20mph, but this setting can be boosted to Class 3 and 28mph via advanced settings in the Display.

The bright Bigstone M300C-TFT Display is sleekly integrated into the stem, controlled by generous buttons to the left. It’s easy to cycle through all ride-essential information including power, time, odometer, and trip data.    

Additional Features

An adjustable stem enhances rider comfort, along with a slight sweep to the handlebars and ergonomic, locking grips. In the cockpit you’ll also find the thumb throttle, Shimano brake levers, with automatic cutoff, and a bell.

Cabling is nicely tucked into the stem, where the 48V Buchel front light is also mounted. A rear light is elegantly integrated into the rear rack and functions as a brake light too. The rear rack is built to carry 55lb and comes with Himiway straps, as well as being compatible with MIK gear.

As well as metal fenders and pedals, there’s also an Abus-branded rear wheel lock and kickstand. The seat is also from the reliable Sella Royale range, but it might be worth considering more padding, though it is a generous width.


The Himiway A7 Pro justifies a step up to the $2000 plus market with quality components and a well tempered mid-drive motor and Shimano components throughout. Full air suspension is notable, especially for a step-thru and really mitigates the bulk of this cleanly designed ebike. Be careful though, once you go full-suspension, you’ll never go back.

It’s also refreshing to see Himiway develop models like the A7 Pro, C5 and C3 which are unlike anything else on the market.
