MODE / Folding bicycle

MODE
MODE

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The clean and striking MODE is aimed at commuters that may have not considered cycling or folding bikes as an option. MODE avoids oily chains, complex tubes with hidden dirt traps, and the clutter of traditional bike features. Commuters, who do not want to change their appearance into “bicycle warriors”, can use it. MODE features IF (Integrated Folding) technology that offers a single-action, automatic fold that requires no tools or removal of parts. IF technology is based on a patented 3-dimensional 4-Bar linkage that automatically guides the wheels together when folding. Once folded, MODE rolls along in a convenient wheelable package.
