Crosshead, the high performance compact folding bicycle, is launching at the London Bike Show and will soon be taking preorders from their website.

Following 8 years of design and development, Crosshead is about to launch their compact folding bike into the market. With its unique, patented double fold technology it rides and feels like a normal bike yet folds into a compact, handy package. Now entering production, this full size folding bike will transform the industry.

Being a cycling enthusiast all his life, Crosshead founder and designer, Stuart Lambert, realised on a trip to Bruges that most folding bicycles, like the one he purchased, had performance issues and didn’t ride very well. Knowing there was the potential to create something better, he set out design a bike which would satisfy the needs of a demanding cyclist yet still offer the convenience of a compact fold. With the first seeds of a radical idea emerging, the Crosshead project started in 2009. Stuart began sketching and thinking about what was wrong folding bicycles, “I concluded there were too many small commuter folding bike solutions." So he ignored this market and created a bicycle for riders who can ride fast when needed, prioritising performance and rider comfort but also experience the convenience of a compact folder.

The bike has been meticulously developed by British designers and engineers offering a sleek and contemporary design, compact folded package with superb ride-ability. The fold method is unique to Crosshead and easy to achieve once practiced, folding in about 20 seconds. Both the front and rear wheels fold towards each other, ending up side by side with no unsightly catches. With full sized frame geometry, 20 inch wheels, multiple gear and brake options and the ability to fold down to 1/3 of its original size, the Crosshead could be one of the best compact folding bikes on the market. Perfect for multimodal use, it’s small enough to fit on the train or in the boot of the car and is great both commuting and leisure based activities.

The Crosshead Bike is launching at the London Bike Show, which is to be held this February 23-25, 2018, at ExCeL, London. The event is the UK’s largest cycling exhibition and plans to showcase 300 of the best cycling brands. The Crosshead bike will be exhibited at the event to give riders an up-close chance to view and experience the bike.

The Crosshead Bike will soon be available for pre-order:
