While folding e-bikes aren't an entirely new concept, the 'Gi FlyBike' collapses in a single second and doesn't have the design drawbacks of other similar bicycles. The bike has a sleek frame that responds to common complaints of bikes that are too clunky and not stylish.

The electric bike allows riders to travel 40 miles with a single charge without feeling tired afterwards. This also eliminates the issue of being sweaty when arriving at work or an important event via bicycle. Finally, its simple folding design makes it easy to travel with and store away.

The folding e-bikes are great for young people or families and are equipped with an integrated smart app that allows users to send friends an invite to unlock their bike and borrow it if necessary. Not only that, the app also tracks rides, turns on lights and even reminds the user of their parked location.
