Camp 20″ Alloy 7 Speed Folding Bike Disc Brake Super Sonic
Camp’s latest release into the folding bike game has been its alloy wonder, the 20” 7-speed folding bicycle. This is a bike that you are going to love to try. In fact, testing it out was so exciting that we couldn’t wait to open it up and put the rubber to the road.
The first impressions of the Camp folding bike are very positive ones indeed. It is a real looker, with aesthetics that will blow your mind. It is one of the best bikes out there today in terms of how it looks. It combines class with a touch of the daredevil attitude these bikes have become famous for.
In addition to this, there is the fact that this company is one of the most trusted in the business today. They have been building different types of foldable bikes for several years now, and have never disappointed in terms of performance and affordability. Trying this one out was truly a pleasure!
Specifications and Features:
This is where the bike truly shines. It comes in a metallic gray color that looks incredibly sleek and professional. The frame is made completely out of a lightweight aluminum alloy that has been perfected by Camp before being sent out to the public. The metal is both lightweight and resilient to abuse. In fact, the whole bike weighs only 29lbs when it is fully assembled. When you think about the fact that this is a 7-speed bicycle, the weight is at an all-time low.
The wheels of the bike are another of its more awesome features. These 20” beauties are the perfect size for anyone to ride. Whether you want a fast bike or one that fits you well, this one has it all because of the size of the wheels. Of course, you can’t expect the same level of performance that a fully fledged road or mountain bike has. You can, however, get on this model and go a lot faster than most of the other options in folding bikes out there today. The aluminum frame truly does help here, as it can increase the acceleration of the bike.
Grey isn’t the only color that this bike is available in either. You can choose from a range of colors to fit your riding style. The versatility doesn’t end here. The stellar performance of the bike is also owed to the extent to which it can be adjusted to suit your particular riding needs. If you have been having trouble finding the perfect fit with other bikes, stop your search here. From the adjustable stem to the awesome kickstand and the overall performance, this is the best folding bicycle you can possibly get.
Folding Mechanism and Components
This Camp bike has one of the best folding mechanisms that we have seen on a foldable bike to date. Unlike most other bikes that require a tool to remove some of the parts before folding the bike down, this one is completely self-sufficient. You don’t need to remove anything. This means that the folding time is going to be reduced by a significant amount.
For example, one of the folding tests that were conducted showed that the folding time was only about 20 seconds at most! The folding mechanism of this Camp bike is a magnetic one that can be locked into place when unfolded. This makes it one of the easiest to use, fold and unfold.
The fun doesn’t stop at the epic folding mechanism either. You are also given an adjustable kickstand, which makes it easy to park this bike outside any store or building you go to without having to worry about it falling over at the slightest gust of wind.
To further improve the store-going capability of this bike, a rear cargo rack has also been included in this Camp folding bicycle. You can carry your shopping and groceries without having to take a car out to go get them. This also makes the bike an amazing choice for casual cyclists who want a cycle they can rely on for running errands within their towns.
- While the bike itself is very affordable, the parts are among the best in the business. With brakes from Shimano, for example, these components have been hand picked to make the ride a breeze. The stellar frame design means that even though there aren’t any shock absorbers, the bumpiest of rides will be a little more fun with this bike.
- This is by far one of the best designs we have seen on a folding bike. It looks amazing! People who see it turn their heads as it passes by. It comes in awesome colors and has been designed to look like it slices through the wind like a hot knife through butter.
- The aluminum frame of this bike makes it one of the lightest and most durable out there at the same time. One of the main reasons behind using an aluminum alloy is the weight reduction that it provides. The Camp folding bike certainly doesn’t let us down in this regard!
- This feature of the bike is what makes it one of the best choices for commuters today. It can keep you on time for work and for your transit times. You won’t have to deal with a heavy, annoying bike ever again!
The 7-speed gearing truly adds to its versatility.
- A little on the expensive side, considering it's one of the cheaper folding bikes on the market
Camp has really outdone itself with this 7 speed 20-inch bundle of joy. It performs like some of the most premium bikes on the market right now and has some of the best features and design standards we have seen on a folding bike. From the awesome folding time to the many different components and color combinations, this is the folding bike that will make the history books!
