About this project

 

The first chainless bike powered by tungsten gears, and RTS technology. Quick response turning, styling that has never been seen, and operated without chains. This is Chainless.                       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chainless S1F is the foldable version of the S1 but takes up half the space. By incorporating the lock-n-go technology, the bike can be tucked, slid, or carried away without the need of a bike rack. 

"Folding bikes are usually cumbersome and heavy. The Chainless S1F is extremely light and can be put into a trunk, without the need of folding your backseat, in 15 seconds or less." 

- Sean C. / Inventor

 

 

Chainless Frame 

Light and strong, the frame is made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum alloy. 

Handlebar / Ergonomic Grips

Made from aluminium alloy, the handlebar can be adjusted to the rider's height. Additionally, the rubber compound ergonomic grips provide the rider with two different options for gripping, eliminating numb hands, aching fingers, and tired forearms. 

Tri Spoke Wheels

The wheels are made from a high density magnesium alloy which is lighter, yet stronger than traditional wheels. Not only do the wheels reduce weight and improve performance, they do so while looking stylish and modern on the Chainless. The wheels come in three sizes: 20", 24", and 26" .

 Disc Brakes

We didn't cut corners building the bike, nor did we do so with the brakes. Chainless features front and rear disc brakes for precise stopping power.

 Geared to Power

This is what Chainless is all about...No chains! This is accomplished by replacing the traditional chain with a series of tungsten gears. The Chainless design is superior for several reasons: Unlike traditional materials, tungsten won't rust and Chainless never has to be oiled! No longer will you have to worry about a loose chain or broken link, you can be confident that our Chainless system will always be ready to go. With our innovative design we have eliminated the need for most maintenance tasks, all while making Chainless a smoother, quieter, more reliable ride.

Aluminum Alloy Pedals

Made from the same materials as the frame so it's light and sturdy. 

Saddle / Seat

Constructed with insulated cushioned foam for your rear and engineered to be comfortable for those long rides.

Fully Adjustable Seat Post

The Chainless seat post is fully adjustable, and ergonomically designed to take away the aches and pains associated with long riding. The design is revolutionary and adjustments can be made in mere seconds.

Fender / Splash Guard

The fenders are made from polypropylene plastic and provides splash protection for those rainy days.

Sprocket-Wheel

Implemented sprocket wheels so the pedals don't lock up when pedaling backwards. Thus, coasting on the bike is a breeze.

 Kickstand

Each Chainless Bicycle comes with an easily removable kickstand. It doesn't matter if you are a cycling purist or a casual rider, you are the master of your own modifications and you can easily make the changes you want.

Lock N Go Technology

From portable to full-size bike in less then 15 seconds. The Lock-N-Go mechanism securely locks the bike in place. (Only available on the S1F)

 

 

Engineered for Comfort

At first glance riding Chainless may look difficult , however Chainless provides a far superior experience than any traditional bike. How is that possible? With the pedals more towards the back, riding Chainless more closely emulates walking. This will decrease muscle soreness and fatigue for a more comfortable ride.

 

Dimension & Weight (Only 25 lbs!)

 Warranty

 

What is Rapid Turning System (RTS)? By activating the Shimano lever, the bike goes from riding mode to RTS mode. RTS activates the back wheel to turn freely allowing rider access to unparalleled maneuverability. Tight corners are no longer a problem.

Risks and challenges

Exposure, is the only the challenge we currently face to getting the Chainless funded.

Production is already in place and manufacturing capabilities are set to go. We understand the risk and problems that can arise so we will keep our backers up to date if any issues occur. We foresee little problems ahead and expect smooth production and delivery times.

We thank you and look forward to providing Chainless to you.
