The difficulty in designing a portable bicycle is in balancing the compromises that often seem inevitable. Impressively, the KILO Estudio Folding Bike concept appears to deliver a functional frame as well as a compact configuration that isn't cumbersome.

Looking at the stylish bicycle, you might not guess that its hidden capability is contorting. It has a sleek form with a smoothly curved top tube that creates a kinked but sculpturally continuous line towards the rear wheel hub.

This wide yet slender frame is hinged in the center, requiring a simple reorientation to produce an impossibly narrow and compact profile. The seat of the KILO Estudio Folding Bike tucks in above the back tire and even the handlebars can be bent down. These actually transform into a set of handgrips to facilitate carrying the conveyance when necessary.
