Gocycle unveils updated, fast-folding GX model

Gocycle has updated its fast-folding GX model for 2020.

The 2020 model has increased integration resulting in just one thin exterior cable being on show. Internally, wiring refinements have been made to give the model an even smoother fold and ease of battery removal, the company has said.

Gocycle’s development team have made dynamic improvements too, with the 2020 GX inheriting the front fork of the brand’s GXi and halo G3Carbon models. All of the improvements combine to give the 2020 GX a 300g overall weight saving vs the outgoing 2019 model.

Richard Thorpe, designer and founder of Gocycle, said: “The fast-folding GX has been a phenomenon since we launched it last year, meeting the needs of savvy urban commuters across the globe. But our no compromises mission to build the best urban electric bikes on the planet continues.

“With constant refinement, we are continuously working to make improvements however large or small. Feedback from our customer base has been at the core of our focus this year. The 2020 GX is a truly compelling proposition with its fast-fold and industry-leading ride and comfort levels making it the most versatile urban e-bike on the market today.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has pulled the e-bike adoption curve forward as more people realise their benefits for a healthier, smarter and more sustainable lifestyle.

“Governments across the world are moving to prioritise cycling and making it safer for new riders to get out onto two wheels. There has never been a better time to leave your car behind and start your two-wheel electric journey!”

The 2020 GX’s fast-folding front frame has been developed specifically for the GX using hydroformed aluminium technology mated to Gocycle’s proven and patented injection metal moulded magnesium Cleandrive system and PitstopWheels.
