how much does this weigh?


12.9KG or 28.5 lbs

By Olivier on July 10, 2023 | STAFF


Where can I get a rear rack compatible with this bike?


Because it is a folding bike, rear racks are not easily installed. I have seen seatpost mounted racks (using a quick release) on these bikes which can be easily removed when you want to fold the bike.

What’s the weight limit?


This Bicycle has a maximum weight capacity of 220lbs.

I have been using it for 1 year, but I started making noise from the fork, I took it to Decathlon, they did it again, but the same noise started again, but the product is generally very good. I haven't ridden anything other than a folding bike for 3-4 years.

Good investment!

Very satisfied with my purchase.

Damn good bike!!

Almost two years and he is amazing!! I do between 40 and 70km per week with it, it is the bike for my commute to work where I take the train with it. No punctures, no complaints at all about the quality!! I maintain it very regularly, I believe it is the key to a folding bike in very good working order.


It is lightweight and does not take up space because it folds, but it is a flimsy product for a country like Turkey, where even bicycle paths have potholes and depressions. I bought it 10 days ago and the rear wheel keeps falling off.


very good

Compatible with any paint

I can use it with my height of 188, as well as a person with a height of 160. Just download and remove the bin. I am enjoying it very much. I used it actively for a while and it added color to my life. Since there is no shock absorber, the road feels a lot, but it is not a problem.

Waste of money

The parts were damaged still decathlon not ready to fix it, they charged for the part on the day 1 of usage. It’s a useless brand and company. Decathlon is not doing a good job in bike segment, many other brands and shops are better than this.

Exactly what I wanted

I'd been after a bike that I could store easy, take on public transport, but also be able to enjoy riding. Brompton's are considered #1 in the folding market, but very expensive. I'd done some research and this bike seemed a good alternative at a reasonable price. I've found it's much better than I thought it would be to ride. I've done 15+ mile days with no issues on different types of terrain (roads, canal paths). Its actually better than a Brompton to ride due to having seven gears (vs three) and bigger wheels (20 inch vs 16 inch). The main drawback is its a bit heavy to carry about and doesn't fold as compact. But it does the job for me and I'd rather sacrifice some of that compactness for a better riding experience.

Decent but flawed experience

I haven't owned a bike since I was a teen (about 12 years ago) and really wanted something to make the commute to work faster and easier. A folding bike made the most sense, I have an upstairs flat and no outdoor storage and also a little car and for these things the bike is great, I can quickly fold it and throw it (gently) into my boot and take it where I like. On flat terrain the bike is zippy, agile and easy to ride. I'm having a lot of fun having a bike I can comfortably hop on and off, take around parks and do some short rides with. After a little learning curve with the twitchyness of using small wheels, the bike performs well in most areas and, once used to it, controls very well allowing for quick tight turns when necessary. The bike is a little heavy after placing some accessories onto it (pannier rack and trunk bag with puncture repair kit and water bottle) but still small enough to make it viable to carry. Pushing this thing around is definitely the way when not riding, this can be a little awkward to control as the bike likes to drift slightly like a shopping trolley. The weight is also another concern with this bike. I bought it with very little knowledge of bikes, nevermind folding bikes and the store assistant didn't give away too much information. I'm a 6'3" (192cm) rider with a large frame and after using this bike a little and reading online I am concerned about my weight and size as a rider for this little bike. Something I wish was clearer on the website and properly explained in store (After a bit of research I'm definitely over the bikes recommended load but it still manages to keep up on flat urban terrain). It is clearly for much shorter and lighter riders, with the way that weight is distributed mostly over the back tyre. The seat post does adjust very well however and does provide good support, feeling a little unbalanced when on some hills, especially when taking off. I did have issues with the seat post dropping steadily with rides and this was fixed by tightening the clamp, but it now feels overtightened and makes the folding a bit less convenient. This brings me to my next point. The bike loses all of its good qualities on hills. The gears are certainly not low enough for this small set of wheels. I never expected a folding bike to be as easy to ride but about 5 to 10 minutes on a 10% incline is enough to destroy my legs and put me out of breath (although I'm sure this works wonders for fitness). I would also say I'm quite disappointed with how little the bike can be customised. For an entry level folding bike, this does the job. It's nothing special but it's fun to ride and very convenient, the build quality seems pretty good but a tad unpolished (alignment of magnets, grip of seat post, weight distribution etc all needs a little reviewing). If you live somewhere flat and are somewhere below 6' and 85kg then this bike is perfect, cheap and comfortable. Anywhere with inclines then think twice.


I recommend it to everybody

Lightweight compact easy to use,…

Light compact easy to use, and for intermodality


The product is light and convenient. Easy to fold and carry. I can put two in the trunk of an SUV. 7 gears is enough. You may have some difficulty on steep slopes, but in general it is useful. I am 187 cm tall. A bit of a bike looks small under me. They already said that we do not recommend over 185 cm when buying. But I bought it anyway because it folded up. From my point of view, I can say that with this product, comfort has taken precedence over appearance.


Very good service from the girl who also speaks Spanish

Tangerine scream

Had a folding bike a few years ago when working in central London. Found I regularly preferred cycling with that for short local trips. As Decathlon Sports had reduced this model decided to get another folder. Not really cycle much yet, but being Decathlon the bike has clever niche features.

A bit heavy

I have no problem folding it up to the 2nd floor, but for someone living on the 5th floor, a lighter bike would be better.
