the ‘sliders‘ foldable bike blends the concepts of a kick scooter and a bicycle to create a ride uniquely suited to the fast-slow urban environment. the design starts with a distinctive frame layout that accommodates both dress and skirts. for convenience, it can be smoothly mounted and dismounted, kicked or pedaled. when finished riding, the ‘slider’ can be quickly folded up for easy transport or tucked away for storage.

  • The clever frame and lovely detailing. All those angles are a bit of a worry though – is the side stand an off the shelf part?
