Dahon: World class bikes that happen to fold...

A frequent winner of folding bike shootouts that include bikes that cost up to four times as much, the Mariner D8 is one of our most popular bicycles. It’s a high quality, lightweight bike at a surprisingly affordable price. Its portability makes the Mariner D8 ideal for trips that include a stretch by bus or train – perfect for multi-modal urban transport.

From the leading manufacturer of folding bikes, the eight-speed Dahon Mariner D8 offers the features and performance most commuter cyclists may want in a folding model, all in a practical, affordable package.

First, the Mariner D8 is comfortable to ride, going smoothly over bumps and shifting fluidly up and down hills. Second, it folds and unfolds quickly, and it latches securely into both modes. Its design also addresses practical concerns: The Mariner D8 has fenders to thwart rainy-road splashes onto clothing, a rear rack to carry stuff, and the option for a frame-mounted front bag.

Finally, this bike is a good value. As with full-size bikes, with folding models you generally get what you pay for. But priced at around $870, the Mariner D8 is a good-quality folding bike with the features you need.
