With a step-through frame, larger 24” wheels inspired by the famous bikes of Amsterdam, the full-size Glide P8 is easy to fold.

Smooth, effortless, graceful… that’s the dictionary definition of Glide, and it’s the perfect description of this low step through folder. Instead of jumping in the car for that trip to the local café for a baguette and a latte, grab a Glide and cruise the streets in sleek Euro inspired style. Everything you need for a day on the bike is right there with you. A rear rack, SKS fenders, and the brilliant Biologic™ PostPump give you the freedom to take your full sized bike anywhere. The train, the bus… the choices are as limitless as the places the Glide can take you.

We have built this model for those of you who need a folding bike but prefer the ride of large wheel bikes.  The enclosed hub gears are always a boon on folding bikes when they are lifted in and out of other modes of transport, as the system is cleaner and the chain won't fall off the sprockets.  Please remember however that due to the larger wheel size they are inevitably bigger in size than Brompton  and a bit bigger than Dahon and Tern 20" Wheel folding bikes, though compared to most 26" wheel folders proportionally they are remarkably compact.
