Five new models were presented by Dahon at this year’s Taipei Cycle. Among them the award winning EEZZ. This newcomer won a Taipei Cycle Design & Innovation Award. Dahon’s new 16” model weighs only 9kg and can be folded or assembled in less than 7 seconds.
Concealed folding hinges within the EEZZ’s frame streamline the bikes structural design while innovative vertical folding technologies simplify and quicken the folding process. With the aid of twin pull rod systems on the seat post, the seat height extends and contracts automatically, eliminating the time needed for individual adjustment.
