This interesting folding bike was introduced at the 2013 China International Bicycle & Motor Fair in Shanghai where it won a Gold Award for Creative Product.  The monocoque frame is constructed entirely from Toray T700 carbon fiber.  The seat post, handlepost stem and handlebars are carbon fiber as well.  It features 20" wheels, a 7-speed cassette with trigger shift, Tektro side pull brakes and weighs in at a fairly light 8.5kg (18.7 lbs) without pedals.
