Like your morning coffee and paper, the Navigator is a commuter's necessity. Fast like a road bike, and built for the commute, the Navigator folding bike rides like the wind and folds to stow under your desk or on the train.
The Navigator comes standard with a rack ,to keep the load off your back, and fenders ,to keep you warm and dry. The clever placement of the rack and detachable design of the fenders keeps the folding simple and easy, the way we designed it. Clever integration of CLIX technology allows for the Navigator to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size. If you forget to retighten the QR after unfolding, a secondary lock prevents the frame from folding. The Navigator frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around frame construction concepts designed for serious full suspension downhill bikes. Each bike in their pavement series comes equipped with 700c wheels. This wheel size offers a significantly better ride than 24", 20", or 16" wheels. By keeping it smooth over potholes, and enchancing the handling of the bike, the 700c wheels are ideal over pavement and trails. The Octagon offers all the benefits of an angle adjustable stem without shortening “reach” when raised. This unique design allows for handlebar height to be changed while preserving the way the bike handles and rides. Also, with the octagonal shape of the post, steering remains engaged while raising or lowering the stem.
