By analyzing existing concepts in the field of Folding Mechanisms there is significant room for improvement with regard to function and operational aspects of the Urban Folding Bicycle in daily use. Next to their complexity they mostly assume technical knowledge to manage a number of levers. flex`s approach is to facilitate the handling for the user with a sophisticated folding mechanism integrated into the frame. By pulling up on the saddle, the flexible reinforcements integrated into the frame tighten up and fix the frame. This mechanism gives its user a more efficient, faster handling to fold and unfold the bike.
