“I’ve seen this bike being developed over the past few years and I’ve ridden each iteration. This is a legit bike. Other folding bikes are only good for a short hop to the station, this bike is good to ride all day, every day. I’ve seen the commitment and dedication of Alex up close and nothing will stop this guy delivering these bikes.”

"I loved my first ride on a Tuck Bike! It felt smooth, safe and comfortable, and I was amazed at how nicely it fit in the trunk of my car when it folded"

"I was shocked at how exceptionally smooth the Tuck ride was. I was expecting to at least notice the folding wheels while riding, but I didn't at all! It felt like I was riding a regular bike with a secret super power."

 A Great Bike Whether You Fold or Not

When you’re on it, it’s a smooth riding regular ‘ol bicycle - what you’re used to and what you expect, but when you fold it…..oh boyyy, ain’t she the cutest?! If you’re going to fold your bike, this is the best way to do it. We’re talking about a full size bike with a conventional frame, that folds down to the size of a suitcase.

A lot of folding bikes focus on getting small, but sacrifice a geometry that handles right. Our conventional frame means it handles great, it’s comfortable and it’s fun to ride.

Who wants to carry a folded bike around? No one! That’s why we attached caster wheels so you can roll while folded. Snappy magnets hold the folded frame together.

 How Do The Wheels Fold?

The wheel is split into three equal parts: imagine a pizza cut in three slices. You stack the pieces up and that’s how it folds.

We reinforced the rim at the ends and hold them together with wedge clamps, so the joints are actually the strongest part of the wheel. Each third of a wheel is independently strong and true and when assembled together, they’re even stronger. There's a final clamp at the hub, and you need at least three clamps to open before any segment can fold. The foam tires mean you can fold and unfold the wheel without having to deflate or inflate.

 Tuck Bike vs The Competition

You can get a small wheeled folding bike that’ll fold smaller than a Tuck Bike, but we know you’ll have more fun riding on full size wheels. A medium size Tuck Bike folds up smaller than a small wheeled Tern Verge P10 (22” wheels), but if you want the absolute smallest package, you should get a small wheeled folder. We’d love you to be out on a Tuck Bike, but most of all we want you out riding. Let’s see how we stack up shall we?

And do those 20” wheels allow a smaller fold?........Yep, but not by much.

Our wheel is safe. It’s passed comprehensive testing by an independent third party. It meets the international standard for reliability (ISO 4210-7:2014) and the American Consumer standard (CPSC 16 CFR 1512.18 (j)), completing over ¾ of a million impacts on a rolling road while overloaded and still going strong.

 Design Evolution

In 2017 I was riding my first folding wheel - I’ve spent four years developing it and now it’s ready for you. Re-inventing the wheel is a crazy hard thing to do, but the good news is - the hard part is done. We’re ready to place the order with the manufacturers and deliver you some kick-ass bikes.
How many times can you re-invent the wheel?

Who’s Behind Tuck Bike?

Hi! I'm Alex, inventor, engineer and bike lover. I invented Tuck Bike because I wanted a full size bike that I could take anywhere. There are other folding bikes, but I wanted a bike that I actually wanted to ride. I’ve spent my career in manufacturing and automotive engineering, including working on the hybrid Range Rover and the Jaguar driven in the Bond movie Spectre. I led the design team at car startup Mobius Motors, and worked in manufacturing to put our first cars on the road. I've worked with many suppliers in Asia. Industry experts helped hone the design to give you the best bike we can think of.
