The original idea of the 5LINKS bicycle came out in Japan and started developing in 2008.
The purpose for the 5LINKS is more than inventing just a smaller, lighter folding bikes. Focusing on the global necessity to reduce CO2 emissions and having healthier life, we thought how more people could make use of the urban transport options available, and fond people want a more convenient way when using a combination of various transportation means.
Having defined this way forward as the PUV (Personal Urban Vehicle), 5LINKS pursued a more convenient, faster, healthier and more eco-friendly way.
The firm has concluded to make a bicycle easy to use and carry even between the different transportation means, which is the 5LINKS folding bicycle.
The name of 5LINKS comes from links between 5 means of transport, in Plane, Train, Car, Boat and Walking. And also it is 5LINKS’ wish that this urban tool can be used through all 5 continents – Asia, America, Europe, Oceania and Africa.
