The GoCycle G3 folding electric bike is one of the most innovative and beautifully designed electric bikes available in the world today. Designed with comfort, convenience and usability in mind, it leverages the advanced engineering and technology of the automotive world to deliver an electric bike that is a game changer and in a league of its own.
Originally designed to provide a convenient and low maintenance means of transport for yachts and sailors, it has also become a firm favourite for caravaners and apartment dwellers looking for something practical, beautifully designed and edgy.

Simple. Fun. Clever: Designer Richard Thorpe believed an e-bike should be elegant, desirable, a joy to live with and fun. So he pitted his experience in designing lightweight racing car components for McClaren, and his enthusiasm for innovative engineering excellence and created the GoCycle. His lightweight magnesium-cast frame, patented Pitstop wheels and clever integration are a nod to his automotive heritage and have turned the simple bicycle into one of the smartest transport machines around.
Every aspect of the GoCycle has been developed to the highest standards, with the main focus on usability & rideability. It really opens up a whole new era of cycling - just pull the bike out, hop on and start pedalling. Simple. This clever machine measures exactly what the rider is doing and applies power and gear changes accordingly. All you have to do is point it in the right direction. And if you want, you can customise those settings to how you like to ride. Whether you are looking for a convenient way to get around once you reach your destination or simply appreciate beautifully designed machines you will love this electric bike.

Personalise your ride: You can take the Gocycle G3 to a whole new level with the GocycleConnect App. This smartphone app allows you to tailor the eBike to your specific needs. You can quickly change assistance modes from City, Eco and full on Demand modes, and there is also the option to program your speed settings. Not so fussed on fancy tech? Don't worry. It is not required to ride the GoCycle - it just gives you the flexibility if you want it.
For those that love their tech though you can use the Gocycle Connect G3 smartphone app for a host of new features - upload maps, log your calories burned, track your distance. Even check the weather! On the practical side it doubles as an easy troubleshooting tool and security device, with a "kill" option to immobilise your GoCycle if stolen.
The lightest electric bike in class. Thanks to its magnesium frame and superb design, at just over 15kg in weight the GoCycle G3 is the lightest production electric bike on the market. This is an amazing feat given it is dual suspension and carries a large battery. It's low centre of gravity with the weight centralised around the bottom bracket makes it agile and easy to handle, and it is easy to lift and manoeuvre at home. It is also one of the most compact ebikes when folded, folding down neatly into an impressive 60cm x 76cm x 30cm space. Great for boats, cars, motorhomes and private aircraft. A portable docking station is also available for stowage as an extra. One of the things that makes it so compact when folded is the quick-detach PitstopWheels, another clever GoCycle-specific design.
Clean, Streamlined and More Range than Ever. One of the unique things about the GoCycle ebike is how integrated and clean it is. Everything is integrated into the bike - chain, battery, cables, gears and controls. So as well as creating the gorgeous clean lines that turns heads, it also means that you don't need to worry about the normal 'bicycle maintenance' things. For example there is no need to oil your chain, there is very little to get snagged and damaged and having mag wheels means no pesky broken spokes.
The GoCycle G3 comes with a host of new features that customers have asked for and to comply with new UK laws. The battery is now 50% larger and the daytime running light that is integrated into the front of the handlebar makes it more visible and safer.
The new GoCycle GX revisits GoCycle's existing design to create an e-bike that folds in just under 10 seconds. The GX model remains true to the Gocycle DNA of stylish, lightweight, no compromises design – and fun! - however it has a fast-folding, compact, structure that you can also wheel along once stowed. This gives it exceptional versatility and usability. In designer Richard Thorpe's words, "a perfect companion for daily commuting and for helping people to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle in our cities.”
The GoCycle GS folding electric bike is the minimalist version of GoCycle's famous GoCycle G3 model.
These bikes are perfect for those not into the technicalities of cycling but are looking for a funky and extremely easy and practical form of active transport. Sailors and caravaners in particular love them for their low maintenance, even in coastal climates, their compact lightweight frames and for their gorgeous styling and usability as a form of transport while in port.
Martin Love, Motoring Editor, sums it up in his article in The Guardian: “Portable, clean, light: the GS is an incredibly easy bike to live with, especially as the ride it delivers is smooth, stable and engrossing. And so it should be – it’s the best electric bike in the world.” .
