In response to the posts above regarding the kansi recall we wanted to share with you information on this direct from kansi.

This week we made the difficult decision to voluntarily recall the kansi bikes. We were made aware of two isolated frame quality issues and although the bikes exceed CEN testing we decided that in the best interest of our valued customers we would proceed with a recall. It has been implied that this is a frame hinge problem however this is not the case.

We are working hard to get the bikes back on the market as quickly and efficiently as possible and if anyone has any questions please feel free to get in contact with us at You can also find information regarding the recall and our progress on

Regarding our bikes, we are often compared to Dahon, and there has been some speculation that a kansi is merely a rebranded Dahon. This is in fact not true, although there are noticeable similarities, kansi bikes have been designed in the UK by a group of like minded riders who wanted a folding bike they would want to ride. Simple changes to geometry and extending the wheel base make kansi bikes ride like a normal bike.

Please get in contact with us if you have any further questions, we love hearing from our customers and welcome all types of feedback.

Many thanks
The kansi customer services team
