Ride Away Bicycles



Dahon is the leader in folding bicycles!In 1975, Dr. David Hon was a leading physicist at Hughes Aircraft Corporation. Dr. Hon and his team developed breakthrough laser technology that was used on NASA space shuttles, US missile guidance systems, and laser-guided anti-aircraft guns. Despite all of his successes, Dr. Hon was unfulfilled. His work was being used for war, rather than improving society.Click to view how Dahon bicycles fold in 3 quick, easy steps!

Dr. Hon's inspiration struck while waiting in an hour-long line for gas. He was going to design and build a portable folding bicycle! For the next seven years on weekends and evenings, he built numerous prototypes. And, in 1982, Dr. Hon unveiled the first Dahon folding bicycle. It quickly gained international acclaim.

Yet, even with all the awards, he was unable to convince any of the major bicycle manufacturers to license or even build his design. So Dr. Hon quit his job, moved to Taiwan and built Dahon bicycles fold small so you can take them with you!his own factory. And, by 1983, Dahon folding bicycles were rolling off the assembly line.
