Presto Lite

Price: £499.00  



The Presto is the lightest, most portable, and best riding folding commuter bike on the market. It weighs only 9 kilos (19.8 lbs.) and folds to the size of a small shopping bag that disappears under bus and train seats. The Presto incorporates six patented Dahon technologies and the result is a small wheel bike that rides as well as a large wheel bike. And we haven't skimped on features that commuters demand, like a maintenance-free SRAM 3 speed gear hub, powerful, all-weather V brakes, mudguards for weather protection, and even a kickstand so you have both hands free when you stop for a coffee on the way to work. Oh yes, and we offer this all for a price that ordinary commuters can afford.

Light weight design makes the Presto very easy to handle, even when carrying the bike through a train station, lifting it aboard a bus, or carrying it up a flight of stairs.

Super compact - folds small enough to fit anywhere: under a bus seat, in a storage locker, in the trunk of a car or under your desk

BioLogic™ II frame geometry - the result of 25 years of evolution and refinement. BioLogic™ II geometry delivers stability and handling in a small wheel bike that is second to none.

Fast folding - 15 seconds

Magnetix™ latch holds the bike neatly together when folded
