City Mantis XP

Experience truly 21st Century transport - the fold-up electronic personal vehicle.  Reaches top speeds of 16mph!

The amazing City Mantis is a fantastically fun, definition- defying electronic vehicle.  Combining elements of the bike, electric scooter and moped, it's constructed around an aerodynamically enhanced aluminium composite hex box frame for top-notch performance, and zooms around at up to 16mph over a distance range of 10 - 18 miles!  16mph might not sound that fast, but on something this size, it feels faster than sh*t off a shiny shovel  (to put it delicately).

And the Mantis isn't just about speed.  It also offers an innovative fold-up option, making it one of the most portable electronic transportation devices money can buy!   Weighing it at around 20kgs, we don't suggest you swing it over your shoulder to carry around, but the folding feature makes it far more convenient for carrying on trains etc.  if you want to use the Mantis on holiday or on day trips.

Okay,  we know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, `if you can fold it up,  it must be pretty basic'.  But you're so, so wrong  (so there).  Thanks to its superbly built frame, the Mantis offers a superb combination of strength and performance.  A twist grip throttle and chain drive provides smooth progressive acceleration, with thumb throttle, and dual suspension and fully adjustable steering keep you firmly in control.

The Mantis also boasts high impact resistant five-blade front wheels, a freewheeling hub and pedals, rear drum braking, a seat shock absorber and a battery `kill switch'.  It's environmentally friendly, and as well as being more fun than sharing a sleeping bag with Kylie  (well, almost),  the Mantis's modern and stylish design looks fantastic.

The City Mantis takes around five hours to charge, but if you're down to half-power, 40 minutes' charging is enough to get you back to full power.   If you're bored with bikes and sick of scooters, you have to sample the speed of a Mantis.
