18 Apr The definitive guide for buying a DAHON
Spring is the perfect time to think about cycling, whether you’re considering investing in your first foldie or even just updating your DAHON. We’re here to give you an ultimate guide on which model is ideal to complement your lifestyle.
To begin, it’s crucial to consider a few key aspects. Firstly, what type of journeys do you want to do on your bike? Secondly, what’s your budget? Finally are you considering electric? It’s important to reflect on these initial questions so you can make an informed choice.
Need something sporty?
The Mu LX could be your next speedy companion. Our sleek, ultra-lightweight 9kg (21lbs) frame is complete with 11 speeds, and rides on custom niobium rims. This aerodynamic ride has been specced for light and premium performance and is ideal for jetting around. Fitting more into the road category, the Mu LX will perform just as well in the city streets, although you might be a little more protective about taking it over rough potholes!
Need a stylish 2 wheeled friend?

Add some extra ease to your journeys with this long-range electric model, without compromising on style.
