Here at Inhabitat we love the practicality and ease of mobility that folding bikes offer, so we were ecstatic to hear that folding bike company STRiDA [2] just released its fastest, most advanced cycle to date! We were huge fans of the company’s brilliantly engineered 5.0 Bikes [3], and it looks like STRiDA has outdone itself again with its sleek new MAS Special Signature [4]. The retooled ride features a Swiss engineered drive system and a rustproof aluminum frame that folds in just 5 seconds flat.

The MAS Special [5] is named after its inventor Mark Sanders. Weighing in at 22 pounds, it features a lightweight collapsible bike constructed from aluminum [6]. Its unique triangular frame allows it for to collapse quickly, while giving it great stability and making it quite comfortable to ride.

Instead of a greasy chain, the STRiDA comes equipped with a clean and quiet Kevlar Belt, while a two-speed drive system allows the rider to seamlessly shift gears with the tap of a heel. Although we’re in love with the bike, we must admit that its $1,400 price tag is a bit intimidating.

The MAS Special Signature [4] will soon launch with two other models (the XT and Sport Duo) at the Interbike Expo [7] in Las Vegas. They will be available next spring.
