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 perfect urban ebike. The fast-folding GX is the latest model to join the Gocycle product family, capitalising on 10 years of electrified engineering expertise. It will become the third member of the current Gocycle family, joining the all-rounder Gocycle GS and range-topping iconic GoCycle G3 model.
The GX’s fast-folding front frame has been developed specifically for the GX using hydroformed aluminium technology mated to Gocycle’s proven and patented magnesium Cleandrive system and PitstopWheels. You will appreciate the intuitively designed folding system that allows for a fast-fold and ease of manoeuvring by rolling on its wheels once stowed.
It’s the first Gocycle model to feature the new Gocycle Moiree tyre which provides all of the dynamic capabilities of the current performance tyre with enhanced grip and puncture resistance. Whereas the current GS and G3 e-bikes have removable wheels and a folding single sided chainstay to allow you to fold them into a compact package, the new Gocycle GX has a hinge in the middle of its frame.
Opening the hinge folds the bike neatly in half. Cleverly, the two wheels end up exactly aligned with each other, so it’s really easy to wheel the folded bike around. Leave the saddle up and there’s a handy handle to push it with too. The integrated kickstand means that the folded bike will stand stably too, while you can remove the seatpost for an even more compact package, that will fit under a desk.
Owners can specify their new fast-folding GX in one of three bespoke Gocycle colour options: Electric Blue, Matt Black, or White with a Black Cleandrive.
It features torque sensing, direct mechanical shifting and an integrated LED battery fuel gauge housed within Gocycle’s unique oversized handlebar design that allows users to monitor battery charge level while on the move. The battery is fully integrated in the GX’s frame for ease of travel and provides up to 65km range. It can be quickly removed for charging or maintenance if required.
The Gocycle GX is compatible with Gocycle’s key own designed accessories for the commuter such as mudguards, lights, and front pannier. It is also compatible with the GocycleConnect App, which provides infinite customised driving modes as well as interesting health statistics such as calories burned, maximum and average pedal power.
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.
Back in production and taking preorders now. Want one now? Have a look at the GoCycle GS model as an alternative.
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.” .
