Held between 6th – 9th May, China Cycle is one of the world’s largest bike shows, it takes place in over six exhibit halls and attracts everyone from large bike brands to small parts manufacturers. The 28th instalment of the show kicked off on Sunday 6th May at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai where over 7,500 bike brands from across the world came to display their latest cutting-edge products and designs.

At DAHON’s booth, visitors had the chance to get an exclusive look at their new folding bike range for 2019 which includes a new version of DAHON’s most compact folding bike ever, the CURL i4 and a brand-new model for 2019, the Hemingway which is both adaptable and compactable to meet the needs of the city and the wider world.

A highlight of the show was DAHON’s simulated bike race where competitors jumped on a DAHON folding bike placed on a trainer and pedalled towards the finish line as quick as they could to be in with a chance of winning their very own DAHON folding bike. The winner of the competition was Zhang Xianlong who completed the race in just 1 minute 20 seconds!

During China Cycle’s second day, DAHON held a new tech launch at which Company CEO and founder Dr David Hon presented DAHON’s brand new tech offering and range of new models to the media. Two separate conferences were held for both the Chinese media and for the global media who were able to get up close with DAHON’s new models and test out the new technology for themselves.

The tech presented at the conference was DAHON’s much anticipated NuWave technology which is featured in a range of new models including the NuWave bike and the DES-1 electric scooter. The new models are unlike any other DAHON models since their frames do not fold. Instead, it is the stem and seatpost that very quickly stow downwards and inwards, along with the handlebars and pedals. The end result is a very narrow package, just 15cm wide, that can be easily pulled or pushed via built in rollers, or tucked behind furniture, and in lockers.

Both the NuWave and DES-1 are ready for mass production, and could hit markets worldwide this year.
