We have been intrigued by this folding bike concept since it started seeking backers on Kickstarter. It seems that there is this ongoing competition around the world to produce the best and fastest folding bike.
Although Brompton Bicycle dominates the folding bike market for the smallest fold that doesn’t stop everyone else from trying to unseat the leader.
SU18 (the 18 stands for 18-inch wheels) is touted as having a revolutionary folding mechanism that allows the SU18 to be folded and unfolded in less than 5 seconds.
While the frame does involve a number of hinges we do wonder how the frame will hold up over time.
Watch the video below to understand the folding concept.
There was a recent update in the campaign on January 1, 2023, for backers only. We hope this frame is near production and can become available to the general public this year.
