Attention commuters, students, private plane owners, sailors, rv'ers & apartment dwellers: Regardless of the number of speeds it has, the Kent Superlite Nexus 3 is one sweet ride. Not only is this lightweight folding bike sturdy, economical, no nonsense transportation; it has the handling and good looks of bikes that are twice the price!

Chic in it's simplicity, the Superlite 3 is outfitted so that most of the gear that typically wears out on a bike (brake cables, hand brakes, derailleur, brake pads grinding on the rims...) is gone. Talk about low maintenance. Plus, the bike has the super cool Shimano Nexus 3 speed internal hub. The result is a quiet ride and a much higher potential cruising speed (due to more efficient gearing). Just get on the bike and pedal. When you want to stop, pedal backwards to engage the coaster brake.

Once you're done riding, it takes as little as 5 seconds to fold this bike for storage. If you need to carry the bike, it even has a carry handle built into the frame. Now you can affordably take your fitness and transportation with you to enjoy fresh air and outdoor activity where ever you go.

* Compact folding frame with elegant clean lines offers amazing mobility in a quick space saving package. Folded Dimensions 27" x 24" x 15".

* Built of a strong yet light magnesium-aluminum alloy, this folding bicycle is just 24.0 lbs, making it very easy to handle.
