Forget everything you thought you knew about pedelecs (electric-assist pushbikes). The Gocycle is designed by an ex-Mclaren design engineer and was voted by The British Library as one of the most iconic inventions of this century’s first decade. This is executive travel at its best. The electric motor and sealed chan ensure you can ride to work in your suit - free of grease-stains and without breaking a sweat. The bike can fold to fit on a train in rush hour or sit in the corner of your office. The wheels are side mounted, so changing a flat is like a formula one pit-stop. Three gears and full suspension, all in a stylish package that weighs just 16kg.
