Our verdict

Handling: Easy.

Hand grips: Comfortable, though if you have very thick hands or knuckles you might find the gap a little tight.

Brakes: Easy to operate and reasonably effective, though the tyres did slip on some surfaces.

Folding: Difficult - you need two hands, and it's easy to get it wrong. Does not stand when folded. Unfolds easily and clicks right into place.

Seat: Very narrow, and the bar backrest tends to push you out of the seat.
