Patented Dalloy Aluminum offers 20% more frame strength than those made of 6061 aluminum.
Double-butted Dalloy tubes are thicker at the ends – where welding takes place and stress is highest – but thinner toward the center to minimize weight.
Invented over 30 years ago by Dahon, has been adopted by many folding bikes on the market. Easy, even lighter, and more compact in 3 steps. By keeping improving the basics of the system, DAHON was able to establish its current position in the market of folding bicycle.
DAHON's proud fusion technology enables the radius handle post to be designed to smoothly connect from the fork to the frame and stem. The coupling system, which is the core of the folding structure, has the highest performance that can be considered as a folding stem by adopting the "InSide ™" locking mechanism that provides strong fixing strength.
Vice Grip latching mechanisms are very, very strong. Thanks to their patented design, they are marvelously easy to operate,with a smooth, ergonomic latch that fits easily in the hand. The hinge pin is of stainless steel and brass bushings buffer moving parts – quality all round.
By increasing the surface area of the conventional quick release lever and using the force of the hand efficiently, the tightening force is improved by about 30%.
A adjustable handle post that can change the handle position up and down with a quick lever provided in the center of the handle post. The groove inside the stem prevents the handle from rotating to the left and right.
Folding bikes need something to hold the wheels together when folded. Our patented and elegant solution is Magnetix, a pair of magnets to keep things in their place.
When a standard 100 mm hub is laced into a 20″ or 16″ rim, it results in a weaker wheel. To remedy this, DAHON pioneered the compact FrontHub: optimized bracing angles are now stronger than comparable 26″ wheels.
