CMYK 5/0: The Fastest Electric Folding Bike.

By Brooklyness, An Urban-X Company.

With CMYK 5.0, Brooklyness uses a powerful 250-watt motor to travel 30 miles of assisted, easy riding with one charge. 


Its lightweight frame (36 lbs/16 kg) and quick-fold mechanism make it the perfect bike to take on the train, store in your car, or stash under your desk — just fold the main beam back, tuck the rear wheel underneath, shift the handlebars down and lower the seat. CMYK is a “pedalec,” meaning it assists the rider while pedaling without a throttle, giving the rider a sensation of being propelled forward. There’s even a USB port to charge your phone on the go.


The shop at A/D/O aims to actively explore the full range of qualities that lie in great product design. The assortment juxtaposes classics, inspiring work from newcomers, inventive directions in technology and aesthetics, and often-underappreciated everyday objects that challenge the definition of “good design.” The shop also stocks books and magazines, records, apparel, jewelry and studio supplies.

Merchandise rotates in conjunction with the A/D/O calendar, referencing the themes being discussed and debated at The Design Academy.
