Description

Closet performance. The SwissBike LX is like the postal service; rain, sleet, snow, sun, cramped apartment, it stops for nothing. Like all SwissBikes, the LX is designed to legally fit on the bus or train, and easily fit in your trunk or boat. This bike will accompany you on your weekend jaunts into the woods and then back to the grindstone on Monday.

CLIX Folding System

Clever integration of the patented CLIX System allows for the Swissbike LX to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. Clever integration of the patented CLIX System makes for quick removal of the front wheel. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size.

Fodling Integrated Technology

The LX Mountain frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around frame construction concepts designed for serious full suspension downhill bikes.
