The VELLO bike combines both sophisticated functionality and aesthetic appeal. It is a compact and manoeuvrable folding bicycle developed for urban mobility designed to master short and long distances easily. The 20” wheels allow for speedy handling, perfect for the city where many stop-and-go moves are part of one’s everyday commute. With its unique folding mechanism, it can be easily folded to half its size within seconds and then conveniently wheeled along. Its robust, unisex chrome-moly steel frame, as well as the specially designed magnet- and rear suspension system that also includes the folding mechanism, helps to ideally smoothen the ride on bumpy streets. Emerging as a contemporary and highly sophisticated reinterpretation of a folding bike, it presents the user with a and graceful design that leaves a lasting impression.
