Cutting-Edge Bicycle Technology
Due to popular demand, we're bringing back this popular bike with even more high-tech refinements in its 2018 version. The 8H model is always up-to-date with the latest biking technologies, such as the Gates CDX belt drive and Shimano Nexus 8sp hub. The drivetrain is rust-proof and won't stretch or slip as you change gears, which is perfect for boaters. The belt system is tried-and-tested technology more commonly found in motorcycle, the new belt's rounded carbon fiber teeth are more reliable, easier to maintain and provide a much smoother riding experience.
The Shimano Nexus internal gear hub of the 8H uses a single, handlebar mounted grip shifter that provides super smooth shifting, even at a full stop.
No more headaches from a metal chain, and low lying derailleur. With the completely sealed internal hub of the Nexus 8-speed gear, damage from dirt and grime is the last thing you'll have to worry about.
The newest model comes includes a disc front hub, 60T front CDX chainring & 22T cog, and suspension option which results in a much more comfortable ride. Having no rear derailleur, external shifter, cog, gears or chain means that you don't have to worry about improper shifting or cleaning the drivetrain.
Being enclosed in a completely sealed and maintenance-free setting, the 8H gives you a great riding experience without having to worry about things related to maintenance.
To make riding the 8H even more awesome, we've added lightweight fenders, a durable rack and a kickstand. The top-tier Tektro V brakes with aluminum machined-sidewall rims make stopping the 8H super-fast and smooth.
We've added a water bottle braze-on (the cage is not included), an interface for the headtube bag to make the lives of commuters using the 8H much easier. The headset is integrated into the head tube and additional mini-bar ends and high-rise handlebars give the rider a customized the fit without interfering with the fold.
The frame quick release, folding pedals and stem are also among the upgrades that were added to the new 8H.
With an $849 price tag and the fact that you'll never find a bike a Gates CDX carbon drive belt paired to the Shimano Nexus 8sp hub for under $2000, the 8H is a steal. Whether you're a boater, RVer and commuter, the 8H is a cutting-edge folding bike model that you'll definitely love.
