Epitomizing Filipino innovation, the technology startup team behind NYFTI was able to create a handmade full-size geometry bicycle with the smallest fold volume – the best in its class so far. It showcases a patent-pending three-fold design that seamlessly folds and fits into spaces one never would have imagined. It has the ability to transform into three convenient modes namely: the fold, park, and cart mode. All of which are perfectly suited for bi-modal commutes.

Built with tough yet light chromoly alloy steel, NYFTI weighs approximately 10 kilograms. In addition, it incorporates 8-speed gears, reliable brakes, and 16-inch wheels granting urban wanderers a safe and nimble ride experience. NYFTI celebrates a lifestyle lived largely in the city with portable and functional handmade bicycles. Altogether, it is a product that is perfect for the on-the-go urban wanderer.
