The BERNDS folding technique

Simple, quick - and safe!
The elements that make up our folding design are particularly safe and simple to handle. SIMPLE: Only four steps are needed, for instance, to fold up our folding bike - without any bolts, and so simple that our bike came out top in independent "usability“ tests. QUICK: The special thing about our folding technique is: both the construction of the handlebar unit hinge, as well as the seatpost, mean that they always return to the pre-set position; after unfolding you do not need to adjust either saddle or handlebars – you can ride off straight away. No other folding bike on the market can manage this. SAFE: The BERNDS quick-release catches on our folding bikes only hold units in place but, mechanically speaking, they do not have any load-bearing function. As a result, the whole construction is especially stable and safe.
