The Strida 5.0 series of slick folding bikes are revered as some of the most sturdy, lightweight, and compact cycles in their class, with everyone from urban cyclists and eco-geeks to space-starved city residents singing their praises. Recently designer Mark Sanders rolled out the latest and greatest folding cycle to grace the lineup, the SX Limited. This souped-up folding bicycle features extended handlebars, a classic comfy leather seat, and thinner, larger 18″ Schwalbe tires for faster and smoother cruising.

Sanders’ Strida 5.0 folidng bikes have the smallest footprint of any full-sized folder, weigh in at just 22 pounds, and fold in 5 seconds flat into a compact form that can be easily wheeled into subways, stored in a closet, carried on buses, or carted up stairs. Strida bikes also feature a silent grease-free kevlar belt that takes the place of a messy chain (no more ruined pant legs!) and a remarkably strong rustproof triangular frame constructed out of lightweight aluminum.
