The latest Gocycle electric bike — the Gocycle GX — can be folded and stowed in less than 10 seconds, making it the perfect companion for daily commuting. The third model from the company, after the Gocycle GS and G3, capitalizes on 10 years of engineering expertise.

“Our new GX model complements our current range, remaining true to our Gocycle DNA of stylish, lightweight, no compromises design – and fun – in a brilliant package designed to enhance the lives of urban commuters. The GX’s fast-folding, compact structure combined with the fact you can wheel it along once stowed gives it unrivalled versatility and usability. It really is the perfect companion for daily commuting and for helping people to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle in our cities.”

Richard Thorpe, designer for Gocycle

Developed using hydroformed aluminum, Gocycle’s patented magnesium Cleandrive System, and PitstopWheels, the intuitively designed folding system also allows for easy maneuvering while folded up. Available in Electric Blue, Matt Black, or White with a Black Cleandrive, it’s also the first Gocycle model to come with the company’s new All Weather Tires.

The Gocycle GX also features torque sensing, direct mechanical shifting, integrated LED battery fuel gauge, and a fully-integrated battery that can easily and quickly be removed for charging and maintenance. It is also compatible with all of Gocycle accessories and with the GocycleConnect App.

The Gocycle GX is available for pre-order from Gocycle’s website and through select resellers throughout the US, Canada, UK, and EU. It has an MSRP of £2,899/€3,199/US$3,299 and shipping is expected to start in April.
