Hercules Rob Fold - Easy Good

Get on and go. Everything’s logical and intuitive. Components have quick-release and are easy to adjust.

It would be futile to try to list all of the things the Hercules Rob Fold is good for… it’s probably simpler to say what it can’t do so well: Tour de France and mountainbike trails. It can do everything else, with understated ease – a capability which nobody would credit it with at first glance. It rides stable and tracks true even at 60 km/h downhill, and it’s easy to handle and it allows even people of widely differing heights to enjoy relaxed riding. It could serve a family as a bike for a teenager, for an elder, and as a toddler-hauler with a trailer. It’s always quick and nippy, with a motor which fades in and out wonderfully softly – and coaster brake fans are in for a treat, as alongside the hydraulic rim brakes it has a coaster brake fitted for an extra reserve of braking power. At 1.3, its power assist factor for the Tour route is very high for a folding bike. And with a mark of 1.6 in the ergonomics test, it achieved an exceptional rating for its remarkable ease of use.
