The Folding Electric Mini-Farthing

This is the folding electric bicycle inspired by the large-wheeled penny farthing popular in the late 19th century. The smallest folding electric bicycle in the world when measured by its 43-liter volume—the reason for which it holds the Guinness World Record—it compacts to 23 1/2" L x 6" W x 23 1/2" H in just 20 seconds for easy transport or storage. Providing a top speed of 14 mph, a 450-watt electric DC motor drives the 20" front wheel while the 8" rear wheel provides steering. A rider up to 220 lbs. sits in an upright position with the handlebars at the sides rather than in front—gentle leaning to either direction assists turns. Its short wheel base enables superior maneuverability while electronic anti-skid brakes provide smooth stops. High-visibility LED lights provide maximum visibility; built-in brake and turn lights allow you to keep your hands on the handlebars at all times. Its rechargeable battery provides a six-mile range from a two-hour charge using the included AC adapter. Carbon fiber construction. Green. Deployed 41" L x 25" W x 32" H. (25 1/4 lbs.)
