2020 was a terrible year for mankind due to the pandemic but it was a great year for bike manufacturers. Bicycles, both traditional and folding ones, were sold out everywhere. It was very difficult to buy an affordable folding bike during the year.

Dahon understood the situation and decided to trim profit margins when releasing the brand new Dahon HIT in 2021. This is a great chance for them to boost cycling when gyms are open with many restrictions and many people don’t want to take the risk of public transportation. Cycling is not only a convenient way to get around but also make us healthier and safer outdoors.

The Dahon HIT will be available in Asia, Europe and North America in Spring 2021. The price is expected to be less than $450. The low price point will make the folder more accessible to consumers on a budget. The bike is strengthened with Deltec cables on the front triangle and reinforced seat tube. It still uses a 6061 alloy frame like many other Dahon bikes, so the whole bike is quite lightweight at just over 26 lbs.
