“THE ONE is not just another electric folding bike. We have created the ultimate experience for riders by making an electric bike that is light, compact, durable, flexible and affordable. At only 12.5 kg, THE ONE is currently the lightest folding electric bike on the market. It contains more than 20 patents, is only 25 cm wide when folded, folds in less than 10 seconds and boasts many more cool features! Our custom-built, 250W high speed hub motor weighs 65% of a conventional motor, at only 2 kg.”
“THE ONE’s folding mechanism is quick and easy, making it perfect for everyday use! Foldable in less than 10 seconds to a compact width of just 25 cm, and makes it ideal for your go-to choice for your commute (folded dimensions: 25 x 64 x 76.5 cm). Its compact size is made possible because of its single-sided fork technology and a patented magnetic system that makes the two wheels stick tightly and firmly together. Compact and sturdy when folded, THE ONE can be conveniently carried, just like a briefcase!”
