gocycle's GX electric bicycle fully folds in under 10 seconds

folding in under 10 seconds, the gocycle ‘GX’ is the latest and fastest compacting electric bicycle in the UK-based brand’s range. once folded, the design forms a compact package that can be simply wheeled along and stored in small spaces. it is perfect for commuting in cities where a short cycle is needed before or after a train journey into the office.

our new GX model compliments our current range, remaining true to our gocycle DNA of stylish, lightweight, no compromises design – and fun – in a package that has been carefully designed to enhance the lives of urban commuters explained richard thorpe, designer of gocycle. ‘the GX’s fast-folding, compact, structure combined with the fact you can wheel it along once stowed gives it unrivalled versatility and usability. it really is the perfect companion for daily commuting and for helping people to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle in our cities.’



the fast-folding of the gocycle ‘GX’ is achieved thanks to a front frame, which was developed using hydroformed aluminum technology, and both their patented magnesium cleandrive system and pitstopwheels. to further its capabilities, it features new weather tyres to perform with enhanced grip and puncture resistance. as well torque sensing, direct mechanical shifting and an integrated LED battery fuel gauge are housed within the oversized handlebar. the fully-integrated battery can also be removed for charging and in case of any maintenance needed.



officially launching in spring 2019, the design is available in a choice of three colors: electric blue, matt black or white with a black cleandrive.
