The very unique Hank Direct Bike folding bike has removed the need for troubles associated with using a chain and uses a direct drive bike pedal mechanism to propel the bike along rather than the age old sprocket chain system.
The bike has been created by Korean manufacturer Bygen and uses levers that transfer power from the pedals to the rear wheel directly. As well as using a very unique way of folding or rather collapsing the bike down for storage and transportation.
According to Bygen the bike creator the removal of variations in chain tension results in a 7-8 percent increase in pedalling power. Watch the video below to learn more about the direct drive folding bike and see it in action.
