Populo Curve comes with 20x2.2 inches (~50.8 x 5.6 cm) tires, suitable for both flat and even roads, but also for some off-road adventures.
Larger tires would help the bike absorb rough trails even better, but 20x2.2 inches tires handle rough terrain acceptably well and allow the unit to be folded in a very small package.

Adjustable seat and handlebars make the ride comfortable for users from 5' to 6'1" (152.5 - 185.5 cm).

The bike comes with a battery charger that requires ~4 hours to recharge it completely.
To increase the safety of the rider, the bike comes with front and rear lights and mechanical disc brakes on both wheels.
