Sada Bike Folds into Size of an Umbrella

Posted in Biking by Darrin Olson on May 20th, 2014

Folding Sada BikeWe’ve seen quite a few folding bikes over the years but none quite like the Sada Bike. The unique part of the design here is that the wheels are hubless, having no center sprocket and no spokes. The bike folds with one motion and the wheels come away from the frame completely.

Anyone that has done some bike riding might question the loss of leverage through gears on a center sprocket, and anyone that is a little bit of a heavier rider might also quickly note that the wheels without spokes might not hold a person. But, Sada really seems to be targeting more of a compact city bike that won’t be setting speed records or taking on any significant air. The bike (without the wheels) folds roughly into the size of any umbrella and can be packed into a rolling case or backpack.

Unfortunately we can’t try one out quite yet since the Sada Bike is still a prototype looking for some funding, but you can check out the video below to see what you think.
