Helix

Helix features

Smaller

Helix was designed to be the smallest and most compact folding bike in its class.

Helix folds down to the size of its wheels.

23" × 27" × 10"

Patent pending side-by-side folding puts the wheels beside the frame and between the crankarms — it's the most efficient use of space possible.

Other folding bikes have smaller wheels but don't fold as small.

Helix features

Lighter

Helix was designed to go everywhere, whether it's the subway, the trunk of your car or a suitcase. Folding bikes are lifted often and must be lightweight.

23 Lbs

World class engineering and analysis have gone into to making Helix as light as possible without compromising everyday durability.

Helix features

Safer

Our patent pending locking mechanisms pass through the fork and steerer tubes to create a safer lock. A secondary safety ensures the lock never fails.

Safer

Pass-through locking design with secondary safety ensures a worry free ride

More rigid

Spring loaded locking device compensates for wear and never needs adjustment

One-Piece Frame

Side-by-side folding allows for a one-piece hinge-free frame that won't flex or creak while pedaling

Helix features

Easier to Use

The combination of side-by-side folding and our patent pending helical hinges allow Helix to be folded with ease.

Once folded, it can be rolled on its own wheels and has an integrated stand for when you stop.

Folds in any order

The rear wheel, front wheel and handlebar can be folded in any order

Pedals won't get in the way

No need to rotate pedals — Helix's wheels fit right in between them

Rolls when folded

Helix is easy to carry and even easier to roll

Take it with you everywhere

Commuting

Ride from home to the subway or go the whole way. Store Helix under your desk so it won't get stolen outside.

Excursions

Go away for the weekend, Helix is so small it will fit in even the smallest car — with room to spare.

Travelling

Pack Helix in your suitcase — it will fit! Experience your destination in a whole new way.

Titanium

Titanium is the only material for a folding bike that is lightweight, durable and can last forever.

Titanium is lightweight, durable, remarkably corrosion resistant and has excellent ride characteristics. It is an exceptional material for bicycle manufacturing.

A titanium frame can rival the weight of a high end carbon frame but with a level of durability that is unparalleled. Folding bikes are constantly being handled; they are folded, lifted, put in trunks and bags — durability is a necessity.

Made in Canada

canada

Helix is made in Canada using a state of the art manufacturing process.

We are the first company in the world to robotically weld bicycles in an inert argon chamber. This process produces the best possible welds.

Our titanium tubes are laser cut on a multi-axis laser with a proprietary process for perfect weld fit up.

Helix uses over 30 titanium machined parts that are made on precision multi-axis CNC machines.

Helix is not only an exceptional folding bike, it is an exceptionally well made bicycle.

Helix is robotically welded in an argon chamber with less than 1ppm O2. It is the current state of the art in titanium bicycle welding.
