About

The Sliders: the first of its kind 

The Slider combines the concepts of kick scooter and folding bicycle to inspire a ride uniquely suited to the stop-and-go's of urban environments.

Unique Frame Design   

The essence of The Sliders is mobility, style, and convenience.Its open frame is specially designed to accommodate dresses and skirts. It can be smoothly mounted and dismounted, kicked or pedaled. When not riding, it can be quickly folded up for easy transport or tucked away for storage. 

 Whole New Experience

Want a pace faster than walking, yet more leisurely than a bicycle?
As you slide around in fashion, you stand at ease while taking in your surrounding's spontaneous happenings and aesthetic details.

Motivation 

We start from woman needs, Designer Paul's girlfriend can't jump on a normal 26" bike easily, and she want to ride it with skirts or suits. So that we spent so many time on develop a better ergonomic design. It not only creates a less restrictive framework but also allows riders to seamlessly transition between kicking, cycling, and gliding.

Easy to Go

Compact your Slider takes just one quick click to pull open two hinges and its ready to be folded and readily grasped.

Open with holding onto the grip and slide. Folding process can reduce the storage volume by half. Now you can easily take it on the train, in a taxi, or into the office.

 Suitable for all Outfits

With its low cross frame and small wheel diameter, the Slider is ideal for ladies who want to rock both skirts and bikes. Without worries of straddling while riding and sliding, you can put on that chic skirt or dress and hit the road!

Risks and challenges

We partner with over 40 years of experience craftsmans in Taiwan to handmake every unit of our folding SkateBike. We insist on a smooth riding experience, so strict quality control before delivery is required. For these reasons, production may take longer than we originally expect. However, we strive to fulfill our stated delivery date.
Additionally, as with all overseas trade, unforeseen complications may always pop up, leading to a late delivery. A hearty thanks for all you lovely backers’ support. We will keep you updated on Kickstarter and The Sliders' social media.
