How long does it take to fold a Slingshot?
Typically you should be able to fold the bike and have it ready for compact "out of bag" storage like in the trunk of your car - in 3-5 minutes. Folding the bike for "in the case" travel like on an airplane should take 15-20 minutes.
Does folding the Slingshot alter the bikes performance?
No. In fact, you won't even know that it's a folder. We designed the Slingshot Suspension System prior to making the bikes fold and thus did not have to compromise performance for portability.
Is the folded Slingshot within the size limitations for airlines?
No, but we have never been charged nor have any of our customers ever reported having an additional fee. Just tell them you are bringing along exercise equipment.
Who would need a folding Slingshot?
City commuters, anyone who travels with their bike, has space limitations, hates renting bikes or is looking for a "Transport - Ready to Race Bike."
What tools are needed to fold a Slingshot?
All you need is a 6mm Allen and a 4 mm socket.
Why haven't they been on sale in the UK before?
Good question. You tell us!
