BIKES - Glide P8




Glide P8




Smooth, effortless, graceful… that’s the dictionary definition of Glide, and it’s the perfect description of our newest low step through folder. Instead of jumping in the car for that trip to the local café for a baguette and a latte, grab a Glide and cruise the streets in sleek Euro inspired style. Everything you need for a day (and night) on the bike is right there with you. A rear rack, SKS fenders, dynamo hub powering a powerful Hella front light and the brilliant new Biologic™ PostPump give you the freedom to take your full sized bike anywhere. The train, the bus… the choices are as limitless as the places the Glide can take you.

Custom-drawn Sonus 7005 aluminum frame tubing with patented Rebar technology, Lattice forged hinge and forged drop-outs

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.
