About

Our automatically folding bicycle is really incredible. It perfectly resembles a Transformer

Fold the bicycle in just two simple steps and then let it follow you around like a suitcase

 

About our auto-folding system  

How is Prefeel different from an ordinary folding bicycle? Our auto-folding technology integrates a three-lock system, and two folding pedals, stable wheel, seat, and rear wheel into one step. This means that eight tedious folding stages are simplified into one step. This truly a breakthrough innovation.

To unfold a prefeel

When unlocking the bike from the folded position, just pull the catch next to the seat. This process will trigger six components that will automatically complete the unfolding process,

 About  automatically folding pedals

As portrayed in the video, the Prefeel has automatic folding pedals. This is a first, and is not a feature of any other folding bike. This means that with Prefeel, you don’t need to get your hands dirty when folding and unfolding the bike.

Those components are made from aluminum,Cooper,stainless steel and engineering plastic for highest lever of durability and performance

About the  stable wheel

this is a specific design for prefeel

About the compact nature of Prefeel  

Prefeel strikes the perfect balance of convenience, comfort and size. It is a scientifically optimal size for folding, just like a suitcase. Simply carry it with you and place it wherever you like.

 

 

 

 Why are there only two Prefeel models?  

Larger wheels mean larger volumes and a bigger folded size. If the wheels are too small this makes the bike less comfortable and efficient. We tested lots of different model sizes, and found that 16 and 20 inch models offer the best combination of both riding comfort and a compact size.

 

 

 

Prefeel has an overwhelming advantage over any folding bicycles

  • Folding bicycles promised to overcome the inconvenience of carrying and storage. Surely they should be popular. This is, however, not the case. Folding bicycles are a rare sight on the road and public transport. This is due to the fact that folding bikes offer no real advance in convenience compared to standard bikes. In fact, even though they take up less space they are more inconvenient as they are so difficult and time consuming to fold and unfold.
  •  Moreover, no one never refuses letting the manual folding pedals dirty hand 

 

 

 Why we do dare to claim that Prefeel deems to the revolutionary product like iPhone?  

  • We have been concerned about cycling since 2007.Although there are many public bicycles in nations and the shared bicycle is recently becoming popular in China, we can clearly feel the fact that the most environmental-friendly and effective bicycle is becoming less and less a part of everyday life.The reason can be comprehended easily, people do not want free-cycling but innovation in the cycling.  
  • So, how to do it? Change the bicycle completely to make riding a street fashion as well as a relaxing movement. Just pure love in riding is much more pragmatic than the cost government invested on climate change.  
Our original intention is also quite simple  
  • To make the bicycle return to our lives reasonably  
  • No more traffic congestion
  • No compromise to fresh air
  • No climate warming  
  • No bury good invention
Although Prefeel is compact and light, shipping is still expensive. We aim to find the best value shipping method. We can ship to most of the US,EU and Asia for free, depending on the quantity bought and location of the buyer. However, there may be additional shipping costs for some locations.  
If you live in an area that it is very expensive to ship to and are unable to accept this fee, we will refund 92% of your pledge. The other 8% is the administrative charge imposed by Kickstarter and can not be refunded. 
 
  • Our vision is not just to reinvent the bicycle !
  • We want not only to revolutionize the bicycle but also the way in which they are stored. City streets are cluttered with bicycles, making them unsightly and untidy. We want to change this. The Prefeel takes up just 1/6th of the space of an ordinary bicycle. A normal car parking space can fit 40 Prefeels! We want to redefine the bicycle as not just a tool of transportation but a work of art.
  •  Our long term plan is to build a network of parking spots for Prefeel in cities across the world. These parking stations will be beautiful and artistic displays. Through this we will change people’s perception of the humble bicycle. We will connect with companies and advertising agencies to fund the construction of these parking stations. 
                      
  • After we’ve finished our Kickstarter campaign, we will launch Prefeel Coffee & Tea, a network of coffee shops where you can maintain your Prefeel free of charge. We will also offer optional upgrades and customization of your Prefeel at these locations. 
  • These coffee shops will become hubs of local cycling culture. Whether you want to meet your friends or have time to yourself, you’ll be welcome to come and have a coffee with us. We want to revitalize street culture with our Prefeel bicycle and Prefeel Coffee & Tea. 

The following picture is for reference only, we will bring fantastic design for Prefeel Coffee & Tea with better experience

Risks and challenges

Durability and performance
When we began to design Prefeel, our concept was to retain the classic frame geometry of a bicycle, maintaining its sturdiness and performance. It is a big challenge to innovate on such a classic and time-tested design, but through determination and years of development we have achieved this.
In pursuit of perfection, our team of professional engineers has tested each component and mechanism many times and in a variety of ways, so we have absolute confidence that the best product will be delivered to you.

MANUFACTURING:
The Prefeel is made of dozens of new components, so the manufacturing process is very intricate. We have developed many new moulds for these components, as well as rebuilding the assembly line.
We have spent thousands of hours developing these new manufacturing processes, and have implemented quality control protocols. To minimize the risk of unexpected problems we are working with experienced manufacturing companies to ease the path from pre-production to volume production.
