04 Oct DAHON Taking Pre-orders for 35th Anniversary Bike
World leader in folding bikes, DAHON, has announced that its 35th Anniversary bike the CURL i8 is now available for advance orders. Strictly limited to a run of 500 and priced at $1,780, interested riders can reserve theirs with a 10% deposit between July 1st and August 31st 2017. DAHON instructs fans to the Curl i8 waiting list and await contact by a DAHON representative.
The CURL i8 features 3-point folding in a hydroformed Dalloy frame with oversized rectangular tubes, as well rear wheel flip-fold. Double down-tubes approach a front triangle and the unique V-shaped coupling between the front and rear triangles turns the bike into a hard-tail. Furthermore, an extra-large head-tube and handlepost are combined with DAHON’s inverted fork stem to provide even more strength and stiffness for steady steering and efficient pedaling. Proper respect is given to structural physics to furnish the much-needed stiffness, durability and safety, far exceeding all safety standards for regular bikes. The removable pedals are stronger and more compact than anything in the league. There is even a roller rack for easy wheeling when folded. With eight speeds in an internal hub gear, the CURL offers great range whilst remaining low-maintenance. A telescopic handlebar post and seat post allow for ergonomic adjustment for riders up to 190cm and 150kg.
The CURL i8 is a limited edition model, with 500 bikes up for grabs globally. This folder boasts great range and agility thanks to 8 speeds in a Shimano hub, and a flaming red paint job. Taking the uniqueness even further, DAHON fans that reserve this model can have a copy of their signature laser etched onto the bike, making it a real one of a kind bicycle to treasure for many years. In order to meet the manufacturing deadline, customers will need to send their signature to DAHON in electronic format by September 15th 2017. Those interested in a particular number in the series are welcome to request it, and DAHON will make every effort to reserve it, but can not guarantee to secure the preferred number.
Customers who are interested in this 35th Anniversary DAHON can pre-register and arrange to pay a 10% deposit to secure their personalized CURL (Please note all deposits are non-refundable).
