1 September 2022 – The world’s lightest carbon fibre tri-fold bicycle, ROYALE Air, was revealed at COMEX 2022 at Suntec City, Singapore. This special edition ROYALE Air single speed was in collaboration with Chedech, a Korean company that has been developing carbon fibre bikes since 2014. The ROYALE Air weighs just 6.98kg including pedals.

Ifrey Lai, Founder, MOBOT said:

“The launch of ROYALE Air series reinforces our position as the leading tri-fold brand in Singapore. We look forward to more collaborations with our Korean partner, Chedech.”

The ROYALE Air frame is predominately constructed using Japan Toray T700 carbon fibre to achieve the desired weight. Underneath its finishing lies trade secrets that were developed after years of technological improvement and innovation. One of which is the unique cross-sectional frame design that resists twisting, resulting in a stable ride even during upslopes.

Another technology is the use of different blends of carbon fibers for different areas of the frame. This produces a frame that satisfies the strength, stiffness, durability, and performance required for a quality ride while keeping it super lightweight.

The ROYALE Air ranks high on components too. Using Litepro Ultimate brake lever with SHIMANO DURA-ACE Dual-Pivot brake caliper for an exceptional balance of rigidity, weight, and stopping power. In its drivetrain, the SHIMANO Dura-ace Hollowtech 4 arm construction crank, mounted with ACE titanium spindle pedals, links to the advanced carbon composite chain tensioner to make sure all the pedaling effort gets transferred effectively to propel the rider forward.
