Dahon is easily one of the top manufacturers of high quality folding bicycles.
It’s obvious that their designers are top of the line, and most of all they listen to the consumers. Time and time again, they have proven that they have a knack for delivering bikes that the people want. The Dahon Vitesse D7HG Folding Bike Reviewed here is no different. Dahon took the already crowd favorite, Vitesse D7, and hooked it up even more to create this newer and more improved version.
Dahon Vitesse D7HG Folding Bike Full Review:
Riding a folding bicycle is a liberating feeling as it allows the owner the option to fold the bike into a smaller, condensed version, in order to easily carry or stow away for later use. Those that live in apartments no longer need to lug a heavy bicycle up stair wells or risk having their bike stolen outdoors.
This is obviously beneficial for those that live in urban areas as the overall space is limited and no one wants to leave their bicycle out on a busy street while they are indoors working or running errands. It is equally beneficial for those that use public transportation; there’s nothing worse than trying to fit an oversized bike onto a crowded bus or subway.
Clearly, there is a strong need for a bicycle that can add a bit of comfort and convenience to a person’s already hectic day.
What Separates the Dahon Vitesse D7HG Folding Bike From All of the Rest?
One feature that stands above the rest is the Vitesse D7HG’s overall weight. At a little over 26 pounds, this bike is one of the lightest around, making it incredibly efficient to carry. To put it into perspective, 26 pounds is roughly the weight of a 2 year old child or a small dog.
This is a 7 speed bicycle which makes climbing steep inclines much less strenuous. This could be highly beneficial for those that live in hilly areas.
Handlebars and Frame
The Ergo grips are specially designed by Dahon to ensure the hands of a rider never slips off the handle bars when in use.
The bike frame is strong and durable that can hold riders of up to 230 total pounds with ease
Though the frame is thick enough to hold large adult riders, it is easily collapsible when needed (within 15 seconds).
Attached to the back is a rear rack for holding anything that a rider would like to bring with them. If you regularly ride to the office, this bicycle will be able to hold your briefcase!
It comes equipped with a kickstand so that riders do not need to place it on the ground or lean it up against other objects when not in use.
