Curve XL

The very first Dahon bike was created to solve a basic problem: how to quickly get from your home to the nearest train or bus station; and then how to get from your train or bust stop to your place of work. For this type of commuting (which we call multi-modal), a bike needs to fold fast; it needs to be light enough to carry easily; it needs to fold small enough to tuck out of the way on a crowded bus or train, and perhaps most importantly, it needs to ride well, so you´ll want to ride it. After more than a quarter century of evolution, we present, the Curve XL, the bike designed precisely for this basic function.
