Folding Integrated Technology

The SwissBike TX 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.

Dual-Sport Versatility

We like to call the SwissBike TX a dual-sport. While it still has the front-suspension and disc brakes found on some of our true mountain bikes, the TX comes equipped with a semi-slick tire that effectively bridges the gap between road and mountain. The smooth, but wide nature of the TX tires allow it to flow easily through the streets, while still taking off road detours.
