STRIDA MAS BIKE, by Marc Sanders

You ride it, you fold it, you push it, you store it! STRIDA is a blend of ingenious design and cutting edge engineering. On a STRIDA you ride fast and fashionable but within 10 seconds you fold it into a small package that you easily store or take with you. You will never need to carry your STRIDA: after folding you simply push it like a stroller!

Click on this cool video to know everything about Strida design, folding & riding (the test ride is on a Strida SX, it gets even better on the Strida MAS!).

Ready to ride again? Use the quick release system and - pop - you have your bike back. Off you go! STRIDA gives you freedom! STRIDA is perfect for commuters but is also a great bike to have on your boat, caravan, or in the trunk of your car. Wherever you take it, remember that this bike has the look. On it, you will have it too!

WHEN JARDINS FLORIAN MET STRIDA

At Jardins Florian, the rule is that we offer only products we have developed or co-developed. We made a first exception when we fell in love with VANMOOF bikes and with their ultimate model in particular: the VANMOOF DÜSENJÄGER.

In view of the success and buzz we got since we put the DÜSENJÄGER on our website, we decided to satisfy our customers who want a foldable bike and extend naturally our bike range to STRIDA which is the sister company of VANMOOF!

It took only a second to pick the STRIDA MAS as it is the very best STRIDA, the same way the DÜSENJÄGER is so far the state-of-the-art VANMOOF.

THE STRIDA BRAND STORY

The very first Strida was the major masters' degree project for Mark Sanders from 1983 to 1985 at Imperial College London and Royal College of Art. The bike has kept on being improved since then, which means almost 30 years of success and innovation.

In 2005, by accident, Taco and Ties Carlier (the two brothers who later founded VANMOOF) ran into the Strida. They became immediately fascinated by Strida's design and decided to import this unique folding bicycle. Strida Europe started then as a small company in Amsterdam and, due to its striking design, the Strida received a lot of attention from TV programs and a variety of magazines. Although the Strida could only be bought online and at the headoffice located in Amsterdam, people from all over the Netherlands were willing to travel in order to make a test ride. 

After two years of Strida experience it was time for the introduction of a re-developed and improved version, the Strida 5.0, which launched in April 2007. This new model became as well incredibly popular. The huge interest in these unique folding bikes and their fantastic potential for expansion explain that, by January 2008, Strida Europe was covering all countries of the European Union.

For further information, you can refer to the Wikipedia page or watch this old but fascinating video where Mark Saunders explains the design philosophy of this product.
