Speed D7

Supplied in Obsidian Black, not blue as pictured

Riding a bike has never been this fun. The Speed combines sporty performance with terrific value. The frame is hand-welded from custom-drawn 4130 chromoly Sonus tubing and incorporates six different patented technologies, resulting in what is probably our stiffest frame. This is where the Dahon range starts, and it is a pretty impressive start, at that. Sleek, simple and excellent value - just what most people want in a folding bike.

SuperLite 4130 chromoly frame is strong, light and responsive

Forged aluminum Radius Telescope adjustable handlepost adapts to all riders and riding styles

Patented DFS technology for a fast and easy 15 second fold


D3: BioLogic™ PostPump - high capacity floor pump integrated inside the seat post


D3: SRAM 3 speed coaster hub


D7: The Dahon Neos rear derailleur delivers crisp, fast shifting and best in class ground clearance


Magnetix™ latch system holds the bike together when folded

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.
