Hummingbird Bike
by Petre Craciun

Designed and manufactured in Britain, Hummingbird is the world’s lightest folding bike.

With an ultra-light weight of 6.9 kg, half the weight of other bikes, it combines cutting edge-technology and traditional hand crafting techniques. Engineered by Prodrive, Hummingbird is set to breathe new life into urban cycling, boasting a revolutionary three-step folding mechanism and an ultralight carbon fibre frame. By challenging the issues of urban cycling, namely mobility and portability, Hummingbird's mission is to make people fall in love with cycling.
