The inventor of 5Links foldable bike is a Japanese dentist who owns a dental practice in the upmarket district of Ginza-Tokyo. As a dentist, he pays attention to safety. Looking at his own folding bike, he discovered that the bicycle's body frame is the main structure supporting the entire weight of the cyclist and the bicycle. This prompted him to design the 5Links foldable bike with unique slidable Handlepost and unibody main frame.
All the magics of folding happens at the slidable Handlepost. Once released from the hinge, the Handlepost slides down as a single piece, bringing the front wheel adjacent to the rear wheel, and the result is a compact folded bike, free-standing on its kickstand.
The unique 5Links design is patented and is well-praised for it ergonomics! Feel free to test out the 5Links bike in our showroom.
