The lightest folding bike is the one you don't carry.

Folding bikes represent an ingenious solution for modern city dwellers and travelers looking to combine the practicality of a bike with the flexibility of being able to fold and transport it easily. Among the different criteria for choosing a folding bike, weight occupies a crucial place. The lighter a folding bike, the easier it is to transport and maneuver, whether on busy city streets or on your travel escapades. The Bastille bike offers a perfect balance between portability and performance, notably thanks to its ingenious rolling system in the folded version.

Make it easier to get around town.

Bastille's ambition is to develop the use of bicycles in the city. Because it follows us everywhere, it follows all our routes: on the train, in a restaurant, in an elevator or the trunk of a taxi in rainy weather. Its folding and lightness re-enchant the very experience of cycling. In a few seconds, two “clacks” and a turn of the hand, the bike folds completely on itself, light and stored next to you.

No need to carry it, the Bastille bike rolls behind you.

Thanks to its aluminum frame and carbon fork, Bastille falls into the category of light city bikes (15kgs). It is possible to have to fold it for a few steps or a doorstep, but its folding has been designed so that you do not have to carry it, so that it follows you wherever you go. In fact, folded in the “T” position, the Bastille bike can be pulled behind you like a suitcase. Taking the train by bike is no longer an obstacle course. Getting out of your building by taking the elevator by bike is very easy. Strolling along the RER platforms while pulling your bike becomes almost fun.

Opening new horizons.

Thanks to this disruptive innovation, we are witnessing a revolution in our travel. In France, many of our large cities are congested and still have little traffic, especially during office hours. Our modern lifestyles require us to rethink the mobility of tomorrow through fluid, safe travel, adjusted to the moment. Bastille offers this new agility, this possibility of being more free thanks to a foldable and lightweight bike, for women and men.

Bastille is working for a more breathable world. The bicycle is the only solution to decarbonize urban travel and resolutely the transport of the future. To accelerate its adoption, it is important to restore its modernity through real innovations in use.
