Folding bicycles are particularly popular with commuters who transport their bikes over long distances by train or car so that they’ll have a fast and flexible mobility option once they reach their destination. The underlying concept of the Fiiz folding bike rules out systemic weaknesses such as small wheels or an insufficiently rigid frame: it has 26-inch wheels and a classic diamond frame that’s rigid enough even for the most energetic riders. Rather than being concealed, the division of the frame is accentuated as a key element of the design. The bike is equipped with a belt drive, a two-speed kick shift hub with a coaster brake and a disc brake on the front wheel. It weighs in at approx. 12 kilograms, can be folded without tools and then pushed along effortlessly because the wheels run parallel to one another.
Although folding the bike takes a little practice, the design has come up with a solution that breaks new ground. The bike is extremely easy to manoeuvre in its folded state and provides a riding experience with all the advantages of a conventional city bike. A good approach.
