The world's lightest folding bike, according to the company that makes it, went into production in Banbury. Engineered by Prodrive, Hummingbird weighs just 6.9 kg and has a simple three-step folding system that allows the bike to be folded in just five seconds.
The lightweight carbon frame is made by Prodrive Composites in Milton Keynes and is available in four colours with each frame being individually numbered. The Carbon Edition features a beautiful visual carbon frame with the carbon herringbone weave pattern clearly visible through the lacquer.
The bike’s frame went through stringent testing using the latest computer engineering software in its design phase.
Prodrive rigorously stress-tested the bike under all applications, ensuring the whole bike easily passed ISO standards at its first attempt.
