When folded the dimensions of the bike is 33.5 x 14 x 31.5 inches. From handle bar to frame, everything is made of aluminum, well that explains why it is so light. The pressed folding system is a patented property of allen. Now you can see, these features (four link suspension and pressed folding technique) will only be available in allen bicycles. Allen is one of the companies that is continuously providing new developments in this section. The design helps in collapsing it in a second and then bring back to original place in no time. The frame is stable and steady. While riding, there are no vibrations and movements of parts.

The four link suspension provides good shock absorbing capabilities, and work really well on rough road. If you run this folding bike, you will feel pretty satisfied with the suspension. Though, if heavy man is riding, suspensions give less results. The handlebars are adjustable, which makes it the cheapest to have that feature. Shimano 7 speed gears are smooth, with capability of climbing a mid-ranged mountain.

This allen sports folding bike is really durable, with the metal frame, you can easily rely upon it. When you’re riding a rough road, metal frames may shake, but not with this bike. The smoothness, even after so many ups and downs is great. Wheels are of 18 inch (451mm) which is low to ground, but does a good job. The bike steadily moves with these wheels, and traction is great.

Allen Urban X has similar features, but not the four link suspension. That makes it cheaper than this one. The other features are same, along with the performance.  This bike is recommended for frequent users. The bike has really impressive feature to buy it.Though if you consider the money, you have many options to look at other brands. The patented design is the only key feature in the bike, if you can compromise on that, I think there are other good folding bicycles out there for a grand.

Allen Sports Urban 1 Speed Folding Bike

The brand is known for quality products in the good price range. This single speed bike is expensive when we look at the price, but quality wise does a good job. 6061 aluminum frame makes the bike weigh 26.1 pounds, but for a single speed, that’s pretty heavy. Anyway, it is not made for daily commute purposes, but does a fine job when roaming around the town, or rode just like that. This bike’s segment is for light use only. When folded the dimension of the bike is 13.8 x 35.4 x 27.6 inches. Color choice available is burgundy and blue.

Detailed Review

This is a 20-inch bike, and weighing 26.1 lbs, which means, heavy while comparing to other bikes. The idea of this bicycle is to provide you a folding bike that has minimal features, but good comfort. The only thing which is likable about this bike is the folding mechanism. You can easily fold it, without any efforts, and roll down with you. This unique patented design makes the job easier. The bike is more of a town and outing bike rather than commute. But you can use it for that purpose. Considering the segment, you can view other options also, because it is not for the daily purpose. Folding would take only 20 seconds, but for that, without any real efforts. The folding compresses the bicycle way much than any other in the segment. Also, the rolling type folding is helpful while carrying along walking.

Coming to tires, they’re average and traction is good. Winzip brakes are impressive and stop the bicycle at the right place at the right time. If you’re expecting something more from this bike, then you should look for other options. The thing is really durable, with the metal frame, you can easily rely upon it. When you’re riding a rough road, metal frames may shake, but not riding will still be good. With ups and downs, you can feel the vibrations in your body.

The patented design is the only key feature in the bike, if you can compromise on that, I think there are good cycles out there.

This bike for not so heavy users, mostly light weight bikes are easier to travel the ones who are only going to have fun, you can lighter your bike with yourself. Sports Urban 1 Speed Folding Bike is basic foldable bike that ensures you quality and durability.

Allen Sports Urban X 7-Speed Folding Bicycle

Instead of made of carbon steel, this bike is made of aluminum. This is the only difference between the model I reviewed earlier. Rest performance is the same due to the same brand and structure. The one where it lacks is the weight. You would be lifting 25.6 pounds on a regular basis on public transport. Sounds like a heavy exercise to me. Foldable size of the bike is 33.5-inch x 13.8-inch x 27.6 inch. 7-speed gears are present instead of 20 in the previous model. This is more like an average commute bike.

Allen Sports Urban X 7-Speed Folding Bicycle Review

Detailed Review

The main advantage of this bike is its folding mechanism. It can be folded in less than ten seconds, without applying some sort of extra pressure. Everything went out great while I was folding. Coming to frame, it is rigid and solid, but heavy, very heavy, and that makes it difficult to carry it around. If you want to make it your daily bike, you have to lift some extra weight.

Gears are smooth, 7 speed Shimano is a great deal at a low price, and quality of the bike speaks for itself. After riding this bike, I have realized the only flaw it has is the weight, rest, smooth and comfy experience. The shifting is perfect and one don’t even realize when one could get from lower to a higher gear and vice versa. Brakes are of WinZip, which have decent performance in all the bikes they’re integrated into. The handle bars and height is not adjustable, you have to compromise on that. Gears help the bike to climb up moderate hills and rough roads.

Tires are life savers. No matter which type of road you’re traveling, they are going to grip on every type, although this is the best folding bike to travel. The brakes are good, the saddle is very comfortable, it’s my personal favorite in this bike. You could just pick it up, and ride to the outskirts, town, and city roads, anywhere. The bike has got minimum requirements, but maximum performance in the segment

Daily commuting is difficult by this allen sport folding bike, but that doesn’t mean it underperforms. We don’t get everything we want in a bike anyway, so it is a great deal at the price it is available on the Amazon. The bike is suggested for moderate commuters, who want a decent bike to go and explore. It is middle of high-end bikes, and low ends bikes, so you could use it for both of the purposes. From the above urbanx review it is found that no product is available at mid ranged which beats this bike, whether it is on durability or performance.

Allen Sports Ultra X Superlight Carbon Folding Bike

This is the dream bike for every rider. The frame is what makes the money. Carbon fiber high density, the lightweight frame can hold up any load, weighs 18.75 lbs. yes, you read it right. This folding bike is flagship among the foldable segment, and at this price, it couldn’t get better. While folded, it reduces to the size of 33.5-inch x 13.8-inch x 27.6 inches. 20-speed gears are enough to make your ride smooth. Available color in the market is only carbon.

Allen Sports Ultra X Superlight Carbon Folding Bike Review

Detailed Review

From where to start? Superlight bike has everything you can ever dream of getting into a bike. Carbon fiber frame is very smooth on the ride, believe it. When you lift this bike, you’re going to say only one word, wow! It is very light, can it be good on the road, but it outdid itself. Frame rides perfectly on a rough and flat road but some factors effe. This bike can be a serious commuter bike, and you’re going to love riding it every day.

20-speed gears are present by Sram X9 10 Speed and let me tell you, they don’t even make a bit noise while shifting, you wouldn’t even realize. The riding experience of  Allen Folding Bike was great. When accelerated things, it shifted vigorously to know the reliability, and this bike doesn’t disappoint me. When the speed was good, the Tekro brakes were applied, and they are just incredible, right in few seconds, you will have your foot on the ground after stopping.

Talking about tires. They’re 20 inches, I know full adult size could have been better, but that would increase the folding size. I don’t see any need for more wheel size, but if you want, you can choose any other, but you’re going to regret it.

The bike when folded compresses like a charm, you don’t have to apply extra pressure, just as simple as crumbling a paper. The folded size is small enough, and you know the weight. It is not really a problem carrying it in public transport, in fact, you would love to flaunt your new beast.

Traction of the tires are good, folding bike carbon ride was really smooth. The grip is good on the dirt road. The overall riding experience was delighted, and one would definitely buy this bike, but, the price is very high. It is a fact that some of the people couldn’t afford that kind of a budget

This bike is recommended to one time investors, who could spend such money, and are serious commuters. You can use it for any type of heavy use, and this folding bike disappoint you. Professionally speaking, purchase this bike, if you have a thing of good features and wooing looks. Also, Check the similarities from other products and buy the best.
