GIATEX Folding Bicycle Features:
STORES JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE; FULL SIZE TO PORTABLE
Storage space a problem? Portability an issue?
Giatex is your answer! You can fold a Giatex
bicycle into a portable size in seconds. Flip
the frame latches and the frame pushes in. Flip
another latch and the handlebar swings down,
lower the seat and fold in the pedals and you’re
done! When you fold/collapse a Giatex bicycle,
you do not need to disassemble any tires, brakes
or fenders unlike some other brands of folding
bicycles. Giatex compresses and expands easily,
cleanly and quickly. Very quickly (in about
10 seconds) and best of all – no tools required!
Forget all of the stories about small wheels
and wobbly handling, hard work and unusable
low gears. Giatex bicycles are more maneuverable
than traditional bicycles; they're lighter and
offer a low step-thru frame (no high cross bar
to negotiate when mounting and dismounting the
bicycle). Giatex bicycles can be adjusted in
variety of ways to provide a custom fit ride.
Greater Adjustability = Greater Flexibility
Flexability is what Giatex is really about.
Whether you need the portability for your commute
by rail, bus, subway, or air OR a bicycle to
conveniently fit into the trunk of your car,
RV or boat, or where storage is a problem (condo/apartment
dwellers) OR want a bike that adjusts to fit
anyone in your family, then Giatex bicycles
are right for you. Car and RV owners, say goodbye
to roof racks and the associated hassles – dirt,
damage, theft, vandalism, time and effort.
Different riders want different riding positions:
some want their handlebars higher for easy cruising,
while others want them low for a more aerodynamic
position over long rides or even lower as in
the case of children. All Giatex bicycles include
adjustable handlebars that can be changed to
the desired height in seconds with no tools
Adjustable Seat Post
Just because a Giatex bicycle can be compressed
into a small, portable size, doesn’t mean that
it can’t handle riders over 6 feet tall. Our
seat posts can be extended in seconds to accommodate
even the tallest of riders, up to 6’ 4”. And,
just as easily, the seat post can be lowered
to accommodate shorter riders.
bicycles’ zinc plated steel frames provide the
ideal combination of strength and durability
but at a fraction of the cost of more expensive
metals like titanium. But don’t think that the
Giatex is a heavy bicycle. Giatex’s unique design
allows for the bicycle to be lightweight too
– weighing only 27½ lbs (for the 16” model).
Giatex bicycles fold down to a size that
is convenient for portability and storage. Giatex
bicycles are ideal for use with mass transit
or with RVs and boats and can fit into the trunk
of almost any car. As well, the compact Giatex
is also elevator, stairs and hallway friendly.
Besides being priced within the means of
just about anyone, Giatex bicycles stretch to
fit the size of the rider (one bike fits all).
The frame length, seat height and handle bar
height are all adjustable to ensure that the
rider has a custom fit for the ultimate in riding
comfort. The unique, adjustable frame combined
with a low frame tube connecting the front &
rear wheels allows one bike to be suitable for
the whole family with a few, quick adjustments.
Adults (both men and women), kids and older
folks will find the bike equally easy to ride.
Stretching also means that Giatex bicycles can
grow along with your kids. And Giatex’s unique
design also means that mounting and dismounting
is effortless because there is no high horizontal
bar to negotiate.
Convenient, Easy Storage
Giatex is storage friendly too. Giatex bicycles
can be easily stored in a closet, under the bed,
in the office, storage room, RV storage bin, car
trunk, corner of an apartment living room or balcony
or just about anywhere. You can even leave it
in the trunk of your car – and use it when it’s
convenient. It can even double as an emergency
transportation too should your car break down
or run out of gas.
With its rugged good looks and comfortable
ride, Giatex turns portability into sportability!
The Giatex is a real head turner, especially when
you collapse your Giatex in seconds and carry
it away. The Giatex's 6 speeds lets you get the
maximum possible speed/distance for the minimum
effort. It also affords the maximum flexibility
for different types of riders and road conditions.
The lower rotating mass of the small wheels, compared
to conventional bikes, facilitates faster acceleration.
The shorter spokes on the smaller wheels make
them stiffer and stronger than larger wheels.
Also the center of gravity is lowered, resulting
in improved stability. Smaller wheels also reduce
the overall length of the bicycle, making it more
compact, lighter and easier to transport.
Most components of Giatex bicycles are standard
and can be replaced with off the shelf items
carried by your local bicycle dealer.
Derailleurs – Committed to quality, Giatex
uses derailleurs (a mechanism for moving the
chain from one sprocket to another to change
gears on a multi-speed bicycle) from Shimano,
a leading producer of reliable and quality bicycle
– the latest in technology, V-brakes provide
the ultimate in lightweight stopping power.
All Giatex bicycles incorporate V-brakes for
both the front and rear brakes.
- Giatex bicycles come with modern 2-tone waterproof
saddles that are padded for comfort, light in
weight and require no maintenance. Optional saddles
are also available including a deluxe comfort
saddle and a saddle with a built-in rear light
for extra visibility during night rides.
