2. It’s easy to fold

You can transform your bike into a neatly folded, easily carried package within a few seconds. Its small size means that it is welcomed on most public transport (even during peak times) and inside buildings for safe storing. Its clever design ensures that mucky parts are kept neatly out of the way. The fold bike can be picked up using the grip on the saddle or towed along effortlessly using the handlebars.

4. It’s built for your safety

We take quality seriously, that is why each folding bike is built by hand by our highly qualified team at our factory in London. The small wheels and responsive handling allow you to get a quick start from stationary and swiftly guide you around potholes and other road obstacles. The upright riding position allows the rider to be fully aware of the traffic around them. For riding at night a range of lighting options can be selected on the bike, from battery powered to hub-dynamos to ensure you are seen.
