Vello Bike by Valentin Vodev for Vello

VDF products fair: Vello Bike is an ultra-light bicycle developed by Valentin Vodev, which can be folded into a portable size in seconds.

Vello Bike was developed by Austrian product designer Vodev for his bike brand Vello, which specialises in bicycles suited to the needs of city dwellers.

Its key features include 50-centimetre-wide wheels and a folding mechanism that is hinge-free, and instead reliant on a magnetic connection that doubles as the bicycle's suspension.

This design ensures that the bike is lightweight and that it can be easily folded into a "small portable companion" within five seconds.

"The bicycle combines innovative technologies and a unique design to offer solutions to known urban challenges, for example, problems switching between bike riding, car and public transportation, and theft protection," explained Vello.

"In just a couple of seconds, it can be carried into public transportation, loaded in the car, or taken on an airplane, and folded for storage in the apartment and office."
