EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

The clean and striking IF Mode is aimed at commuters may have not considered cycling or folding bikes to be an option. IF Mode avoids oily chains, complex tube with hidden dirt traps and the clutter of traditional bicycle features. It can be used by city commuters who do not want to change their appearance into 'bicycle warriors'.

IF Mode offers a single-action, automatic 5-second fold. No tools are needed and no parts need to be removed. The technology is based on a patented 3-dimensional 4-Bar link that automatically guides the wheels to come together when folding. IF Mode can be rolled along. As well as being wheelable when folded.
