Himiway has been committed to the research and production of electric bicycles for more than 10 years. During that time, the structure of the bike and the coordination of various parts and components have been changed several times.

The earliest fat-tire bikes date back to the 1980s, when they were loved by free-riding enthusiasts who rode mountain bikes on the sand and snow! In 1986, French engineer Jean Naud used Michelin to customize special tires for him and he rode through the Sahara desert. Almost at the same time, the dirtbike race, which was held immediately after the famous Edita Rode Alaska toboggan race, aroused the enthusiasm of many cycling athletes. Fans have modified their equipment to make the bike more suitable for riding in the snow. At the same time, sand dune cyclists in New Mexico, USA began producing snow bikes equipped with large-diameter tires and rode all the way to Alaska in the 1990s. In 2005, a company called Surly bikes in Minnesota produced a wagon named Pugsley, which was the first mass-produced fat tire bicycle. Its designer Dave Gray explained the design concept of this bike: "A suitable for sports, wilderness adventure, mountain biking, agricultural or industrial production use, hunting, fishing, foraging, electric motor-driven riding, commuting, mountain biking and all-terrain bikes for camping."

Therefore, in a strict sense, the fat tire bike has existed for a long time. Only in recent years, it has returned to people's attention and people are starting to really be familiarized with it again. Fat tires are the most promising market segment in the bicycle industry. Outdoor Magazine calls it the hottest trend in cycling, and compares it to human-powered wild transportation, with the fat tire's anti-slipping technology.
