Gi FlyBike: The first electric bike that folds in one second

Share This:

We built Gi FlyBike in the pursuit of one big idea: to transform the way millions of people commute around the world.

Hello and thank you for checking out the Kickstarter campaign for Gi FlyBike. If you are not persuaded as to why you should invest in a new Gi FlyBike, please contact our founder Lucas Toledo directly by email and he can help you with any questions you may have.Lucas can be reached by email at: Thank you so much and we hope you enjoy our campaign. Best, The Gi FlyBike Team.

Gi FlyBike is an electric, smart, maintenance-free, folding bicycle with full size, 26” wheels that we created for the future of urban commuting.

Crafted from ultra lightweight aircraft grade aluminum, Gi FlyBike can be taken anywhere––bus, train, office, elevator, or locker––without compromise. Gi FlyBike gives people exactly what they need. Freedom to ride without excess or restraint.

Last year we launched a Kickstarter campaign for the first iteration of the bike that validated our concept, design, and features. We gained worldwide attention, with over 49,000 website mentions and coverage in more than 400 media publications.

Our last campaign led to the newer, more affordable, patent-pending Gi FlyBike, and a bigger and more dynamic team. We have built partnerships with IncutexGoodwin ProcterRibcap,DannyShaneSantex and New as well as an incredible mobile app. TUV, the Technical Inspection Association, now ensures that Gi FlyBike complies with European laws for electric bikes.

Plus, Gi FlyBike is $1,500 less than the original bike––with even more technologically-advanced features.

Gi FlyBike’s features make the bike a sustainable, technologically-advanced and–perhaps most importantly–practical commuting option. Each of the following features are rooted in one simple question: how can we improve your commute?

  • FlyFolding System: Folds in one single second, and in one simple motion.
  • Electric Flight Assistance: Rides 40 miles (60 km) on a single LifePo4 battery charge.
  • GPS System: Syncs wirelessly with iOS and Android.
  • Solid, Anti-Puncture Tires: No more flats.
  • Belt Drive: Maintenance free riding. No grease. No noise. Your pants are safe.
  • USB Phone Charger: Stays connected and never runs out of battery.
  • Smart Locking System: Locks automatically when you are 10 feet (5 meters) away.
  • LED Smart LightsControlled remotely and automatically with the app.
  • Sharing Program: Create a personal profile and share your Gi FlyBike with friends.
  • Gi FlyBike App: More details below.
All of these features come together to create an enjoyable commuting experience. Imagine: you get off your elevator with your folded FlyBike; you unfold the bike in one second, choose your route, and start cycling towards your destination; you do not want to arrive sweaty so you increase your level of electric assistance; the sun begins to set so you turn on your smart lights; you’ve arrived cool, calm and collected, and with a fully-charged phone. As you dismount and fold your bike, it locks automatically; you are finished with your FlyBike… for now, but a friend wants to borrow it so you share it through the app.
We teamed up with Santex, a global software engineering company, to create the Gi FlyBike mobile app. The iOS version is fully-developed and now available for download on the App Store. We are finalizing the Android version and it will be available shortly after the Kickstarter campaign.
