Show Description

A folding bike is superb for multi-modal commuting: it stores in your closet, packs up for your train ride and stashes under your desk at work. Cruise it to a party and when it's time to leave, tuck it under your arm and grab a taxi home. You can even toss it in the car when you're heading out camping. The Origami outrides ordinary folders with superior hinging and a stiff frame that neither flexes nor creaks. Internal hub gearing reduces grease transfer whether you’re riding it or carrying it. Built-in fenders ensure rain won’t slow you down, and 24in. wheels mean you can keep riding comfortably for longer.

  • Centre hinge allows lightweight 6061 aluminum frame to fold back on itself.
  • Tern V-brakes are powerful and easy to maintain.
  • Adjusts to fit riders from 147 to 195cm (4ft. 10in. to 6ft. 3in.) supports a max weight of 115kg (254lb.).
  • 7-speed internal hub allows rider to change gears whether pedalling or not. Gear range suits most city riding.
  • For transport, seat post telescopes into the frame, handlebars telescope and fold flat, and pedals fold against the crank.
  • 24 in. wheels are designed to improve comfort and handling while keeping small dimensions.
  • 24 x 2.0 in. tires provide plenty of cushioning.
  • Folded size is approximately 39 x 86 x 84 cm.
  • Integral rear rack keeps packs and cargo off your back.
  • Note: Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC bike shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
