IF Mode folding bicycle by Mark Sanders
The clean and striking IF Mode is aimed at commuters of the mobile generation who, until now, may have not considered cycling or folding bikes to be an option. The iF Mode Folding Bicycle is a modern day rendition of the bicycle and it easily folds for storage & transportation. Designed by Mark Sanders in conjunction with Pacific Cycles, this single swing action folding bicycle can be folded in less than 3 seconds.
IF Mode avoids oily chains, complex tube with hidden dirt traps and the clutter of traditional bicycle features. It can be used by city commuters who do not want to change their appearance into ‘bicycle warriors’ and may use public transport or their car for some of the journey. IF Mode looks at home folded up on a smart subway train or in an office, just like a sleek mp3 player or other well designed accessory in your life. It also performs on the street like any lightweight well balanced full size bike.
The IF Mode has wonthe 2008 Eurobike Award, iF Product Design 2009 Gold Award, and Taiwan Excellence Silver Award.
