once again combining foremost functionality with contemporary design, the new MINI folding bike provides a flexible, comfortable and stylish means of getting around. introducing an all-new mechanism, the bicycle’s high-quality aluminum frame can be collapsed and unfolded again in a matter of seconds. this allows it to be quickly and easily downsized into its space-saving form and loaded into any car boot or even a bag.

whilst weighing less than 11kg, the MINI folding bike’s frame is paired with a padded leather saddle, eight gears and 20-inch wheels to deliver a comfortable ride. furthermore, the teflonO-coated chain protects against rusting and stubborn dirt, while front and rear mudguards shield the rider. the seat itself and the handlebar grips, which adorn cognac-colored leather, complement the matt dark gray body of the two-wheeler, as well its silver-colored accents. in a different image than its energetic and dynamic lime green predecessor, the design characterizes a more modern look.
