APEX Folding Bike Review

APEX folding bike

The APEX folding bike is another budget folding bike made by Vilano. This bike is comparable to the Omega folding bike also made by Vilano. The bike is very light weight and easy to carry around.

When I first received this bike I found it very easy to put together. It didn’t come with a lot of extras some other more expensive folding bikes, but then again I didn’t need those extras. The price is honestly is greatest feature of the APEX, its hard time find a folding bike at a more affordable price.

It’s a great bike for short term commutes. The bike comes decked out with Shimano components which is good because Shimano is a recognized name known for making quality bike components. The Apex also comes with a rack and fenders which are great additional features.

The Apex is a great buy. I highly suggest it to anyone looking for a budget folding bike. I would also suggest taking a look at the other folding bike model made by Vilano which is the Omega. I’ve talked to a few of my friends that are really into folding bikes and some of them prefer the Omega.
