BIKES - Curve SL




Curve SL

Price £649.99



...lunch rides to that great new café.
...a morning commute to work.
...taking on the subway.
...weekend rides around Central Park.

The Curve SL does everything you’d expect as the top-of-the-line Dahon commuter bike: it folds in seconds, weighs next to nothing, and folds small enough to fit into a shopping bag. But where it really shines is how well it rides. BioLogic™ II frame geometry is reassuringly stable. A custom Shimano Nexus 8 Premium hub provides all the gears you’re likely to need on a commute. And custom Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires are fast, smooth and easy to accelerate. Slip a Curve SL into an El bolso and you’ll be instantly mobile, anytime, anywhere.

Patented new V-Clamp frame hinge is strong, durable and easy to operate.

The Kore saddle and post combination is light, comfortable, and offers twice as much fore/aft adjustability.

MKS QR pedals are precision manufactured in Japan and super easy to operate.



Dahon Special Edition Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires are light, fast rolling, and have a layer of Kevlar for puncture resistance.



Ergon grips are the most comfortable grips on the market.

FREE TUNE-UP - a £30 value!

Dahon requires all of their bikes to be checked and adjusted by a trained bicycle mechanic before riding.
This activates the warranty and you can then upgrade to a lifetime warranty simply by sending the warranty card in.
Without this service, you'd have to bring your bike down to the local bike shop for a tune up before riding and you'd get charged up to £30.
We offer this service for free, so when you get your bike from us, all you have to do is unfold it and you can start riding.

*Note: These are Dahons standard model specifications. We do our best to ensure that the specifications listed here accurately reflect the exact parts found on our delivered bikes. However, component changes do occur for various reasons and there may be brief delays on site updates. Dahon reserve the right to make component changes without prior notification, which may cause discrepancies with the information listed on the web.
