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. The train, the bus… the choices are as limitless as the places the Glide can take you. Fitted with a rear rack, Lights and SKS mudguards.  

We have built this model for those of you who need a folding bike but prefer the ride of large wheel bikes, and wish to sit very upright.  Built with an even longer handlepost than normal, and can be extended even further with the telescopic section if required.  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.
