Shimano Nexus 8

The BOSTON 8 is powered by a Shimano Nexus 8-speed internal gear hub. This maintains the clean lines of the Boston, provides perfect gearing for city hills, and keeps the salt and sand out of your gears so you can just enjoy the ride on your folding bike.

CLIX Folding System

Clever integration of the patented CLIX System allows the BOSTON 8 to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size.

Folding Integrated Technology

The BOSTON 8 frame is designed around a patented folding system. This folding bike design means you don’t 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.
