The Verge S8i is the world’s most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It’s designed around a Gates belt drive and Shimano’s 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub. The result is a practically silent super-commuter with no greasy parts or protruding derailleurs, plus a gear range for any incline. The S8i has an extra-long wheelbase and Schwalbe Big Apple tires, so it rolls confidently over any and all potholes. It will get you there quickly, cleanly and most importantly, in style.

The Gates belt drive is the ultimate commuter drive system: it’s clean, light, quiet, and requires zero maintenance.

Clean:  Unlike chain drive systems, the Gates belt drive doesn’t require any grease. It’s always dry and clean—an extra bonus when you’re riding with your nice trousers or squeezing onto a crowded subway.

Light:  The Gates belt, rear sprocket, and front sprocket together weigh less than just the chain it replaces.

Low Noise:  The Gates belt runs silently—always—unlike a chain that needs regular lubrication to run quietly.

Zero Maintenance:  The Gates belt does not stretch (unlike a chain) and will last twice as long. It won’t rust and never needs lubrication—a big plus if you ride in wet, icy weather and roads get salted in the winter.
