"There really has been no expense spared in designing the ultimate product for the urban cyclist"
THE LONDON ECONOMIC
"A folding bike that is engineered and manufactured to Formula 1 standards – a bike that is perfectly practical, flawlessly blending transportability, efficiency and rideability; weight, strength and foldability."
At Hummingbird we have always had one goal: To enable people to enjoy greater freedom through our endless pursuit of better design and innovation.
Hummingbird was founded in London in 2015. What inspired us was a problem with no solution – No one was building the beautiful, high performance, lightweight folding bicycles for daily riding that we wanted to own. With the support of Prodrive, Hummingbird combines all the key attributes of style, innovation and technical excellence that Prodrive stands for.
Prodrive hand build the lightweight carbon frame as well as assemble the finished bike in Banbury alongside the race and rally cars it builds for Aston Martin, Subaru, Renault and many other championship winning race cars.

DESIGN & INNOVATION
The best design paired with the latest technology is what sets our bikes out from the pack.
Hummingbird frames are made out of carbon fibre , an advanced composite material used in aerospace and racing due to it’s high performance qualities in terms of weight, stiffness and vibration dampening. Carbon fibre doesn’t just save weight, it can also be beautiful – proven by our immaculately laid Edition frame, hand built in England.
Hummingbird’s high performance wheels allow our bikes to go faster with less effort. Stronger and faster accelerating than larger bicycle wheels, Hummingbird’s wheels also reduce the overall length of the bike, making it compact and easier to transport while retaining the comfort of a full size bike.
The Hummingbird frameset design is a perfect synergy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable to ride. Hummlock, Hummingbird’s safety pin makes the bike very easy to carry when folded and ensures all components lock together. Each swingarm is machined from a solid billet of aluminium and anodized to ensure a strong part with a long lasting finish.
Swinglock, Hummingbird’s pivotal folding system allows you to fold your bike in less than five seconds – release the the wheel under the frame, drop the seat and clip the the handlebars under the swing arm. Beautifully simple.
