What is more fun that bicycling around a new place? You can discover the lay of the land and get around and see sights much more easily than on foot, but without the expense of taxis or renting a car. Voyagers often bring along a bike, but they can be bulky to store. A great option is a folding bike, like the new folding bikes from a company called SwissBike.
From the press release: SwissBike announces the launch of a new line of bicycles bearing the SwissBike brand. These full-size, high-performance bikes fold in half for easy storage or transport using a patented technology originally developed to allow military paratroopers to airdrop with a mountain bike.
The SwissBike is perfect for cyclists who demand the performance of a full-size mountain bike, but also need the convenience of folding for travel, commuting and storage. SwissBikes are unique as they combine elegant design and precision engineering to provide cyclists a high level of convience without sacrificing performance.
There are three models of SwissBike. The SwissBike XO is the flagship model, sporting the Sram XO drive train and Montague’s patent pending CLIX™ wheel release system, (see www.clixqr.com). This model is made in Switzerland at the foot of the Alps, and can climb any mountain or tackle any trail with ease. The XO has an MSRP of $1,995. For those who like the folding feature but are on a budget, the LX (MSRP $795) and the TX (MSRP $645) offer the same Swiss knife-like folding with Shimano’s 24-speed and 21-speed drive trains and Montague’s patent pending CLIX™ wheel release system.
“The SwissBike range of bikes offers a great ride for all levels of riders,” said Jonathan Vandenberg, sales manager for the SwissBike. “The patented folding technology found in the SwissBike provides the cyclist with improved performance, convenience and safety. At the same time these bikes are fun, healthy and good for the environment.”
SwissBike is a division of the Montague Corporation which is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is dedicated to advancing cycling through the development of inventive technologies that provide its customers with an unprecedented combination of safety, performance and convenience.
