If your ride to work is less about sunny skies and smooth tarmac, and more about rain, grit and potholed roads, then you need to take a look at the Cadenza XL. It’s primed for urban riding with Schwalbe’s legendary Big Apple tires and the smoothest shifting drivetrain on the planet – the Shimano Alfine. The 7005 aluminum frame is burly and stiff and even up close you can barely tell that it folds. But fold it does, in less than 30 seconds when you need to stash it in your hallway closet or take it on the bus.
Looks and rides just like a non-folding bike, but folds for easy transport and storage
The Shimano Alfine hub has eight gears and incredibly smooth shifting – and because it’s a hub gear, it’s almost maintenance free
Dahon Axis stem adjusts for height and reach so riders can find their optimal position on the bike
Schwalbe Big Apple tires roll fast and deliver plenty of cush when you need it
Mudguard and rack compatible
