A comfortable commuter is necessary if you plan to ride every day. A good mix of versatility, comfort, and value is the Dahon Speed P8, built with a stiff frame and wide tires to handle the roughest rides.

Dahon Speed P8 Features:

  • Wide Schwalbe Big Apple tires for comfort and stability
  • 8 speeds for all-terrain riding
  • Folds down to the size of a suitcase in a few easy steps
  • Air pump integrated into seat post

The Speed P8 comes with Schwalbe Big Apple tires - wide balloon tires that absorb lots of shock and are lined with a tough Kevlar lining, making the bike virtually flat-proof. For a pothole-ridden ride through New York, no other tires are more comfortable. dahon speed p8 folding bike video

Riding on 20" rims, the Speed P8 rides more like a full size bike. With its rigid frame and locking hinges, this is one of the more durable bikes for commuting. There is even an air pump built into the seat post for topping off your tires on the road!
