THE INNOVATIVE FOLDING BIKE

Kwiggle is full of innovations. We optimized the world's most compact folding bike for every millimeter and every gram. We solved many 1000 design and manufacturing tasks until we were satisfied with the result:

The smallest folding size and greatest riding fun for any body size.

Experience mobile freedom, MADE in GERMANY.

Superior cycling


For us, the best innovation of the Kwiggle:

The fantastic upright movement on this folding bike.

After thousands of miles, we can confidently say:

Riding a Kwiggle is physiologically superior to normal bicycling.

With luggage rack

You don't have to buy a special bag. Just take standard available bags: 
The rack is suitable for Ortlieb bags with QL-2.1 system and for Vaude bags with QMR system. 



THE FRAME

As frame material for the Kwiggle, we use only high-strength stainless steel and 7000-series aluminum. 

  • The stainless steel steering tube and high-quality silver-brazed stainless steel joints bring springy comfort and ensures long-term stability.
  • All moving parts of the precision folding joints are equipped with extremely high quality wear protection. 
    This ensures a robust, exactly closing joint, and with only one twist. This is unique and patented.
  • The lower frame parts have tab-like weld seams for the best possible stress distribution, manufactured with industrial robots in consistently outstanding MIG quality.
  • The rear frame section is particularly elegant and light as a single-arm swingarm.
  • The fork is made from only one piece. This makes it light and strong at the same time.
  • We use sealed heavy duty 1.5 inch industrial angular contact ball bearings as the steering head bearings.



THE RIMS

In a special manufacturing process, the Kwiggle rims are manufactured from a single piece of wrought aluminum alloy, unique in the world, with outstanding properties:

  • light and rigid at the same time
  • wear-resistant even after many thousands of kilometers
  • highly corrosion resistant
  • highest running accuracy
  • polished noble look

And the tire fits perfectly into the rim.

This precision and robustness allows smooth running even at high speeds of 60 km/h (37 mph).



THE DRIVE 

The Kwiggle's patented drivetrain brings the 12-inch wheels up to road bike speed at normal riding cadence.

For a long time we thought it wasn't possible but:

We have made a very robust mini derailleur, which reliably switches the 3 pinions with 7, 8 and 10 teeth respectively. The pinion geometry thereby allows a smooth shift change. The sprockets and the chain are made of the best materials that the bicycle market has to offer: High-strength stainless steel with outstanding wear resistance. This ensures many thousands of kilometers of trouble free riding.

For maintenance, we recommend the oil and grease-free chain lubricant "DryFluids". High ceramic content provides a pleasant pedaling feel and significantly less dirt.


          THE CRANK UNIT

           
          • Miche Team CPT
          • Crank length 170 mm
          • 5-arm, bolt circle 110mm
          • 1 chainring with 46 Z
          • with integrated chain guard, 7075 aluminum
          The Crank unit fulfills two important tasks. It has a particularly small Q-factor so that the feet can be as close together as possible. This is much more comfortable for riding while standing. In addition,  the Miche Team CPT is one of the lightest representatives of the square aluminum cranks.

          Chain wheel and chain guard are made of one piece, which results in a very noble look.

          THE TROLLEY WHEELS


          In trolley mode, the Kwiggle is easy to carry next to you. Just like a trolley suitcase.

          The trolley wheels are made extra large for this purpose, so that pulling of the folded Kwiggle is easy and pleasant everywhere, even on uneven terrain.

          THE BRAKES

          The side-pull brake is the lightest and most space-saving brake there is. That's why we chose to use them.

          Because every millimeter and every gram counts.

          We have equipped the front brake with a brake force limiter, which prevents falling forward even when braking hard in the heat of the moment.



          THE FRONT AND BACK LIGHT

          The Eyro model from Busch and Müller combines detailed driveway illumination at 30 lux with high compactness. The EYRO is a battery front light of high quality. It is simply removed for charging and connected to a USB socket..

          We mount the EYRO only 40 cm above the ground in order to make the ground structure (edges, bumps) very visible. The detection of unevenness is thus no problem even in the dark. The light output is very good.

                 

                Kwiggle Pedals

                THE PEDALS


                MKS XP-EZY with reflectors, total only 330g.
                Perfectly functioning plug-in principle.
                Quality made in Japan.

                We used plug-in pedals. This makes the folding size of the Kwiggle 2 cm narrower and comes to hand luggage size..

                A clipless pedal is child's play to pull off with one hand and is significantly more robust than any folding pedal.
