SPOTLIGHT: STRIDA CARBON FOLDING BIKE
WON TAIWAN EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2015
COMMUTER AND FOLDING BIKES CONTINUE TO BE THE CATEGORY
TO SHOWCASE INNOVATIVE BICYCLE DESIGNS
Bicycles used for sport purposes generally focus their design efforts on functional parts of the bicycles. With augmentations on the functions and performance over form, sports bicycles generally retain much of their tried and tested product specifications, making minor tweaks for improving performance over the years. The same could not be said for urban commuter or leisure bikes. These bikes has seen much evolution and experimentation in their designs. Strida bikes, though not the latest addition to the urban bike ranks, are still turning heads with their unique design in both form and function. They bagged another Taiwan Excellence Award in 2015.
The latest folding bike from Strida has a carbon frame, and it was named as a winner of the 2015 Taiwan Excellence Awards.
With a unique triangular frame designed for an erect riding position and best-in-class visibility, the Strida folding bike is designs as a classy and effortless way of getting around the city. Weighing in at just 8 kilograms, the Strida is all about elegance. In addition to its carbon frame, the bike uses a Kevlar greaseless belt drive system instead of the regular chain and gears. The unique belt transmission eliminates the problems of chain slips and grease.
The Strida can be effortlessly folded up in under 5 seconds, thanks to the bike’s specially designed structure and magnetic components. When folded, Strida bikes can be hanged in a closet or placed underneath a desk. The bike takes up very little room since its frame consists of only three tubes.
