From Toronto with Love, Helix Folding Bike is claimed to be world’s best folding bicycle that you can own. This bike folds down to the size of its wheel, it’s small, light, safe, and easy to use compared to other folding bikes in the market. When you park your bike to ride train or bus, it might get stolen or vandalized, bike is a great urban vehicle that unfortunately not easy to live with due to its size.
Nowadays, we can see that people use folding bikes to answer they need for space, however, these bikes come with their own compromises. Some of them have small wheels or compromised geometry that makes riding is not an enjoyable experience. Helix wants to change those problems with its latest bike design.
Update : You can pre-order this bike now, it looks like there are many people interested with this project.

Helix folding bike has wheels pivot on helical hinges to allow the front and rear wheels to be folded next to the frame, between the cranks. It’s been designed to use the space as efficient as possible. Not only this bike is small in width and height, but also depth, it measures 25-inch x 23-inch x 9-inch.
