Himiway C1 Kids Electric Bike Review: A Fun and Affordable Ride for Your Little Ones

If you’re looking for a way to spoil your child (or grandchild!) with a fun and exciting electric vehicle, you might want to check out the Himiway C1 Kids Electric Bike. This is a new product from Himiway, a well-known Chinese-based ebike brand that offers some interesting and affordable models for adults. The C1 is their first attempt at creating a kid-friendly electric bike that resembles more of a moped or a scooter than a traditional bike. In this review, we’ll go over the features, performance, and price of the C1, and compare it with a similar product from Super 73, the K1D.

Himiway C1 Video Review


The Himiway C1 is designed for kids aged 4 to 12 years old, with a height range of 3’3″ to 4’9″ and a weight capacity of 165 lbs. On the lower end, our 4-year-old couldn’t quite get his feet down at 42″ so pay special attention to whether this will fit your child.

It has a 350 W motor that can reach speeds of up to 15 mph, and a 36V 10Ah battery that can last for up to 50 miles on a single charge. In reality, you should expect less than that especially with an older child riding at higher speeds.

The battery is removable and has a display that shows the current charge level. The C1 also has a display on the handlebar that shows the speed, battery level, and power mode. There are three power modes to choose from, with different top speeds of 7, 13, and 15 mph.

The C1 has a single rear hydraulic disc brake with a motor cut-off feature, and a thumb throttle on the right side. The C1 has a rigid front fork, 16″ by 3″ wide street tires with tubes, a bolt-on front axle, and a sturdy kickstand. It also comes with a BMX-style handlebar with a pad, a bell, a duck accessory, and a moto-style seat that flares out in the rear. The C1 is available in five colors: cyan, bluish gray, white, coral, and black.

C1 Performance

The Himiway C1 is a fun and easy ride for kids who want to experience the thrill of an electric vehicle. The C1 has a decent amount of power and torque, and can climb hills without any problem. It even beat a 48V 500 watt motor in our hill climb test.

The C1 is also very stable and balanced, thanks to the wide tires and the low center of gravity. The C1 is not too fast or too slow, provided your child has experience on a balance bike or pedal bike.

And the power modes allow the kids to adjust the speed according to their comfort and skill level. Some throttle training may be necessary for kids that are unfamiliar. The C1 is also very quiet and smooth, and the single rear hydraulic brake is responsive and effective.

Price, Shipping & Assembly

The Himiway C1 is priced at $799, which is a fair and reasonable price for a kid’s electric bike. This is a niche market after all. For price comparison, check out the Lectric XP Lite which has just a slightly larger battery and also has a 300 watt motor.

Himiway includes free shipping and a two-year warranty from Himiway. You can also use our link and discount code to save some extra cash and support Ebike Escape. Pegs come included and pre-installed (no pedals here!) and assembly requires attaching the front handlebars.

Comparison: Himiway C1 vs Super 73 K1D

The Himiway C1 is not the only kid’s electric bike on the market. There is also the Super 73 K1D, which is a similar product from a popular American-based ebike brand. The K1D has a 750 watt direct drive motor that can reach speeds of up to 15 mph, and a 32V 2.9Ah battery that can last for up to 90-120 minutes on a single charge. Compared to the C1, the K1D has a twist throttle, regenerative braking, and off-road tires. The K1D has a weight capacity of just 75 lbs, and is designed for kids aged 4 to 8 years old. The K1D is priced at $995, which is $200 more than the Himiway C1.

So, which one is better? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. The K1D on paper has a more powerful motor, but is also lower voltage, and has a more off-road vibe. The C1 has a battery three times the size and thus a much longer range. Plus, a more street-friendly style thanks to the tires. Overall, the K1D is more expensive than the C1, but it also has a more premium brand name.

Ultimately, both the C1 and the K1D are great options for kids who want to have fun on an electric bike. They both have their pros and cons, and they both offer a different riding experience. Full disclosure: we have not tested out the Super 73 K1D but feel the Himiway C1 offers more value for the price.


The Himiway C1 is a fun and affordable kid’s electric bike that offers a lot of features, performance, and value. The C1 is easy to ride, stable, and powerful, and can handle different terrains and hills. The C1 has a good range and battery life, and a simple and intuitive display and throttle.

The C1 is a great way to introduce your kids to the world of electric vehicles, and to spoil them with a unique and exciting gift.
