6061 T6 aluminium frame—lightweight, dynamic and sturdy.
The very simple, patented lateral folding system means it takes up very little space: at home, at the office, in the boot of a car or in a camper... you'll forget your bike is even there.
Once folded, the size of the bike is reduced by two thirds, and a locking system on the frame and stem keep the bike folded and make it easy to move and transport.
Thanks to a 7-speed Shimano SIS, the Hoptown 500 easily adapts to most gradients.
The Shimano Revo-Shift grip shifter is ergonomic and precise.
Metres of development: 2.96m / 5.90m.
Steel V-brake and callipers guarantee effective and progressive braking.
Hi-ten steel fork for greater durability.
