You don't have to buy a special bag. Just use normal bicycle bags: 
The rack is suitable for Ortlieb bags with QL-2.1 system and for Vaude bags with QMR system.

THE FRAME

We only use high-strength stainless steel and 7000-series aluminum for the frame of the Kwiggle. 

  • The stainless steel steering tube and high-quality silver-brazed stainless steel joints bring springy comfort and ensures long-term stability.
  • All moving parts of the precision folding joints are equipped with extremely high quality wear protection. 
    This ensures a robust, exact closing joint, and with only one fold. This is unique and patented.
  • The lower frame parts have tab-like weld seams for the best possible stress distribution, manufactured with industrial robots in consistently outstanding MIG quality.
  • The rear frame section is particularly elegant and light and constructed as a single swingarm.
  • The fork is made from only one piece. This makes it light and strong at the same time.
  • We use sealed heavy duty 1.5 inch industrial angular contact ball bearings as the steering head bearings.

THE RIMS

In a special manufacturing process, the Kwiggle rims are manufactured from a single piece of wrought aluminum alloy, unique in the world, with outstanding properties:

  • light and rigid at the same time
  • wear-resistant even after many thousands of kilometers
  • highly corrosion resistant
  • highest running accuracy
  • polished noble look

This precision and robustness allows smooth running even at high speeds of 60 km/h (37 mph).

THE DRIVE

The Kwiggle's patented drivetrain brings the 12-inch wheels up to road bike speed at normal riding cadence.

The very robust mini derailleur reliably switches the 3 pinions with 7, 8 and 10 teeth. The pinion geometry allows a smooth shift change. The sprockets and the chain are made of the best materials that the bicycle market has to offer: high-strength stainless steel with outstanding wear resistance. This ensures many thousands of kilometers of running performance of chain and sprockets.

For maintenance, we recommend the oil and grease-free chain lubricant "DryFluids". High ceramic content provides a pleasant pedaling feel and significantly less dirt.


Faltrad-Kwiggle-6-Gang-speeddrive

THE 6-SPEED-SPEEDDRIVE

  • Gear ratio 1:1.65
  • Crank length 170 mm
  • 5-arm, bolt circle 104mm
  • 1 kettingblad met 34 T
  • Entfaltung 3,1 - 7,2 m
  • with integrated chain guard, 7075-T6 aluminum
The 6-speed speeddrive is a real discovery. A very robust easy-running bottom bracket gear with a long gear ratio, which makes steep hills just as possible as a quiet cadence even at 30 km/h.

With the shift bars on the crank, it is now comfortable to shift. Our reason to use the speeddrive now also in the Kwiggle.

THE 3-SPEED CRANK UNIT

  • Miche Team CPT
  • Crank length 170 mm
  • 5-arm, bolt circle 110mm
  • 1 chainring with 46 Z
  • with integrated chain guard, 7075-T6 aluminum
The Crank unit fulfills two important tasks. It has a particularly small Q-factor so that the feet can be as close together as possible. This is much more comfortable for riding while standing. In addition,  the Miche Team CPT is one of the lightest representatives of the square aluminum cranks.

Chain wheel and chain guard are made of one piece, which results in a very noble look.

Faltrad-Kwiggle-Trolleyraeder

THE TROLLEY WHEELS


In trolley mode, the Kwiggle is easy to pull. Just like a trolley suitcase.

The trolley wheels are made extra large for this purpose, so that pulling of the folded Kwiggle is easy and pleasant everywhere, even on uneven terrain.

THE BRAKES

The side-pull brake is the lightest and most space-saving brake there is. That's why we chose to use them.

Because every millimeter and every gram counts.

We have equipped the front brake with a brake force limiter, which prevents falling forward even when braking hard in the heat of the moment.


Faltrad-Kwiggle-Frontlicht-Eyro

THE LIGHTING

The Eyro model from Busch and Müller combines detailed driveway illumination at 30 lux with high compactness. The EYRO is a battery powered front light of high quality. It can be simply removed for charging and than connected to a USB charger..

We mount the EYRO just 40 cm above the ground in order to make the ground structure (edges, bumps) visible. The detection of cracks and bumps  on dark roads is therefore no problem. It also has an excellent light output.


The rear-light

The Spanninga Nr. 9 with reflector and battery convinces with its retro look.

        THE LUGGAGE RACK

        The rack is another highlight on the Kwiggle. We wanted to provide our customers with a solution for their existing Ortlieb bicycle bags without having to spend extra money on a separate luggage system. We have developed a rack that fits perfectly into the folding size, allows at least 10 kg load and weighs only 75 g.

        All current Ortlieb rear-wheel or Ortlieb front-wheel bags fit on the luggage carrier.


        THE PEDALS

        MKS XP-EZY with reflectore, only 330g.
        Perfect functioning plug-in principle.
        Quality made in Japan.

        We use plug-in pedals. This makes the folding size of the Kwiggle 2 cm narrower and has therefore hand luggage size..

        The pedal is very easy to remove with one hand and is significantly more robust than any folding pedal.
