The second part in our short series on what makes the Chedech a revolutionary bicycle and a true joy to ride.
One of the main selection criteria when choosing a folding bicycle is weight. If you are lifting it in and out of your car, or taking it onto public transport, it must be easy and light to carry.
To achieve optimum lightness, Chedech uses a special carbon material that is used throughout the frame (main and rear) and handles.
In fact, a great part of the development time and investment in R&D was in finding new ways to weave the carbon so that it remained light but also very strong.
All the major parts are made of carbon fiber, and that leads to a comparatively lightweight bike. For example, Chedech is only 9kg. (without pedal)
This lightweight design helps you to ride faster, and you can also ride uphill more easily. Just like a good carbon road bike, it feels like someone is pushing you from behind per each stroke.
2. Strong and Durable
The team behind Chedech completely understand where to use carbon and where to use metal. For the folding hinges, we used metal to keep it strong for the continuous folding movements.
For the other frame parts we used carbon to keep the bike light and comfortable. In addition, we use a strengthened carbon material for the parts connecting the metal hinges to the carbon frames. T
This is done by adding extra chemicals, which make those linking parts stronger than the other carbon areas.
