A new folding electric bike has launched via Kickstarter this week in the form of the FLIT-16, designed by a team based in Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The FLIT-16 equipped with a rechargeable battery integrated into the frame and offers a smooth ride and a quick folding design that allows it to be stored and transported easily. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the next generation folding electric bike created by an ex Jaguar Land Rover engineer.
“We’ve designed it from scratch to be the best in its class: it is not only the best looking folding ebike, but also the best to ride. With the FLIT-16, all of your city journeys will be fast, fun and effortless. This is your chance to be one of the very first to have one. Our unique folding mechanism enhances ride quality: unlike other folding bikes we’ve kept the main frame hinge free to maximise rigidity. Weighing just 14kg, it’s easy to lift your ebike upstairs, or just stop, fold and roll straight onto the train. ”
Earlybird pledges are available from £1,250 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place to certain countries during March 2020.
Features of the FLIT-16 folding electric bike include :
– Travel up to 50km on a single charge, that’s over 3x the average UK cycle commute
– Maximises the rigidity of the frame for the best ride quality
– Keeps the design clean & cool
