Cutting-Edge Bicycle Technology

 

Due to popular demand, we're bringing back the 8H bike with even more high-tech refinements in this 2018 version.The 8H model is on the leading edge of biking technologies. It has the Gates CDX belt drive system and a Shimano Nexus 8sp hub. The drive train is rust-proof and won't stretch or slip as you change gears (this is particularly useful for boaters). This belt system is tried-and-tested technology more commonly found in motorcycles. 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.

You won’t experience the headaches that often occur with a metal chain, and low lying derailleur. You’ll be free of damage from dirt and grime with the completely sealed internal hub of the Nexus 8-speed gear.

The newest model includes a disc front hub, 60T front CDX chain ring, 22T cog, and a suspension option that 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. And you never have to clean the drive train. Being enclosed in a completely sealed and maintenance-free setting, the 8H gives you a great riding experience without having to worry about 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 teamed 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 head tube bag (this makes the lives of commuters using the 8H much easier), a headset that is integrated into the head tube, and additional mini-bar ends and high-rise handlebars (this gives the rider a customized the fit without interfering with the fold).

We also upgraded the frame quick release, the folding pedals, and the stem on the new 8H.

The fact that you'll never find a bike with a Gates CDX carbon drive belt paired with the Shimano Nexus 8sp hub for under $2000, the 8H is a steal at $999. Whether you're a boater, Rver, or commuter, the 8H is a cutting-edge folding bike model that you'll definitely love.

Well Made!

I have so far ridden for just a couple of miles to the local bike shop to get the brakes adjusted. I like the sturdy feel of the ride and the range of gearing, although changing up requires rather too much effort. I dread having to take off the rear wheel though - and the local bike shop doesn't have any experience in hub gears and doesn't want to learn. The fold is quick and easy, although not particularly small. Nevertheless, the bike appears to be well made and built to last, so I am looking forward to many years of fun.

Wonderful

We brought the bikes with us to Florida, and they've been wonderful. Smooth, quiet, comfortable. Thanks!
