So what do you make of this?!

World’s First

The YikeBike is a world’s first in design, application & technology. Weighing just 10.8kg the YikeBike is the smallest folding electric bike in the world. With the ability to fold up or unfold in just 15 seconds and travel at 23km/hr you will never have to worry about getting to that meeting across town again.

Design Focused

The YikeBike is as versatile in everyday life as it is beautiful. Using the latest construction technology and materials, every component is produced and then tested to ensure maximum durability.

Pure Enjoyment

Riding  has never been more fun. Experience the joy gliding down the street!

Safety Conscious

The YikeBike has been developed with safety in mind. It is the world’s first electric mini farthing to have anti-skid regenerative brakes. That means you can stop with confidence on nearly any surface while charging up the battery for maximum efficiency.

Always visible

The YikeBike advanced LED light system is ON constantly so you can be seen at all times. Turning lights, brake lights, rear lights, turning signals and hazard lights functions are included.

Always Convenient

The YikeBike goes wherever you need to go, folding up to such a small size the YikeBike can be used to extend your commute from a car, train, bus or plane. You’ll never have to worry about locking your investment to a bike rack again, just take the YikeBike with you.

Go Green

The YikeBike is the perfect tool to reduce your carbon footprint and replace it with a very earth friendly tire tread.

Inherently Stable

The YikeBike has been designed to be ridden at speed without having to worry about bumps and potholes. The larger 20” front wheel can safely drive over most bumps and through most potholes, and the rear wheel easily follows.

I’m not sure what I make of it yet, check out the promo video to see it in action:

I like the fact that it packs so small, and I think we got a glimpse of Carbon, the way he shoulders it makes it look pretty light. I wonder how good it is on a cold, wet, Mancunian winter morning in rush hour!?
