Easy folding, stable and light-weight
The vertical technology folding allows this bicycle to straight away roll into a folded position without any added effort. This also means that you won’t have to lift the bike making it easy to manage. The folding frame is structured on smaller wheels compared to other Dahon bikes making the process faster and easier.
It has an inbuilt guide wheel which means the bike can conveniently be pushed around, almost like a cart. This tiny wheel inside also keeps the folded bike steady and in one place. On top of that, the Dalloy aluminum frame maintains the overall lightness and strength of the bike.
Top-end mechanisms with a stunning matte finish
The Qix D8 is packed up with excellent mechanisms and accessories. To name a few, it stands on the stout Schwalbe road cruiser tires that are 20” long delivering a strong tempo on the road. The ever amazing 8-Speed derailleur and grip shifters are time-tested and super reliable giving off a premium bike feel.
The entire frame of the bike is covered in durable black paint with a matte finish. This bicycle looks elegant, slim and stylish. The overall structure of the bike is quite stable and lends good control. The riding experience will be fast, smooth and pleasurable.
