The e20.8 Play is a brand new, BMX-inspired foldable electric bike from British manufacturer Estarli.
The Pro version comes with a rear rack and tyre guards.
It's the perfect blend of functionality and fun, and is essentially an off-road upgrade of the standard e20. It maintains the lightweight practicality and everyday usability of its sister bike – whilst adding more power and thicker, grippier tyres for those looking to add off-piste capability to their city ride or commute.
A slightly more premium option than the e20, the Play features 10Nm more torque (now 50Nm compared to 40Nm in the e20), an 8-speed Shimano drivetrain, all-terrain tyres, carbon front forks and internally routed cables for a sleeker look.
Please Note: All Estarli e20.8s are built by hand, and the lead time on the both the Raw Metal and Sage Green is currently 8-weeks.
Watch our full review of the Estarli e20.8 Play below:
The fast-folding e20.8 Play comes with front and rear lights, a next generation inner rotor hub motor generating 50Nm torque – as well as hydraulic brakes with internally routed cables and magnesium alloy forks.
It weighs 20kg and has all-terrain wheels and tyres, a Shimano 8-speed gear-set and a removable seat-post battery.
When you ride the e20.8 Play, you can feel that it's a serious upgrade on the standard e20, which was already a fantastic bike.
For a bike in a relatively small form factor, it packs a seriously big punch, sailing up steep hills with ease (and that's with a 95kg test rider on the bike).
High-end components such as hydraulic brakes and puncture proof tyres contribute towards a brilliant all-rounder where there are no compromises and no corners cut.
The removable battery adds a level of convenience that means you can charge the battery separately from the rest of the bike. It also means you can easily replace the battery with a new one if you need to (though it's worth noting that since we started stocking Estarli in 2022, they have proven to be one of our most reliable e-bike brands).
Yes this bike is a step up in cost from the e20.7, which is a fantastic bike in its own right, but the upgrades are well worth the extra expenditure.

The jeep camou 2xe has been a game changer. I love riding it. The scooter is fantastic, and the service from Electroheads was great, and the product arrived promptly.

I took a look at the tenways, but I ended up going for a Estarli e28 pro - pretty simliar price and specs.
