Gocycle has revealed full details of its new ‘fast-folding’ GX model ahead of its spring launch.
The brand has said the GX is capable of being folded and stowed in under ten seconds, faster and easier than any previous Gocycle. It will become the third member of the current Gocycle family, joining the GS and the G3.
Richard Thorpe, designer of Gocycle, said: “Our new GX model compliments our current range, remaining true to our Gocycle DNA of stylish, lightweight, no compromises design – and fun – in a package that has been carefully designed to enhance the lives of urban commuters.
“The GX’s fast-folding, compact, structure combined with the fact you can wheel it along once stowed gives it unrivalled versatility and usability. It really is the perfect companion for daily commuting and for helping people to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle in our cities.”
Owners can specify their GX in one of three colour options: electric blue, matt black or white with a black Cleandrive.
The front frame has been developed specifically for the GX using hydroformed aluminium technology mated to Gocycle’s patented magnesium Cleandrive system and PitstopWheels.
It is the first Gocycle model to feature the new Gocycle Moiree tyre which the brand has said provides all of the dynamic capabilities of the current performance tyre, with enhanced grip and puncture resistance.
It features torque sensing, direct mechanical shifting and an integrated LED battery fuel gauge housed within Gocycle’s oversized handlebar design that allows users to monitor battery charge level while on the move.
The battery is fully-integrated in the GX’s frame for ease of travel and can be removed for charging or maintenance if required.
The newest model in the Gocycle range is compatible with Gocycle’s own designed accessories for the commuter such as mudguards, lights and front pannier.
It is also compatible with the GocycleConnect App, which provides customised driving modes as well as health statistics such as calories burned and maximum and average pedal power.
The Gocycle GX is available to pre-order now online and through select resellers throughout the US, Canada, UK, and EU.
