Kansi launched a new UK-designed mid-range folding bike called the 2011 3twenty. Aside from being a folding bike that rides well, the 3twenty is one the bikes that Kansi claims to fit into the modern riders’ lifestyles and reflect their personalities.

What’s nice about the 3twenty is that riders can color-coordinate the bike. Riders just have to register the bike online to avail of the free pack called the mykansi box, which features different color decals, grip collars and end-caps. This will also upgrade the warranty to three years.

Making the 2011 Kansi 3twenty folding bike stiff and strong are the hinges, which hold the frame firm so it tackles very well. Thanks also to its Avid Single Digit V-brakes that allow for a nice stopping and slowing down and to the Sram T3 hub gears for less maintenance.
