BH’s latest Ibiza is a compact, small wheeled folding bike that adapts folder tech they already used with new disc brake and commuter build options to improve urban mobility. With a simple three-piece main frame design the 18″ wheeled Ibizas are quick to ride & quick to stow, and not too hard on your wallet.

Ibiza Pro White disc brake folding bike

The Ibiza is offered in three complete bike builds, with the Pro White edition the biggest update for the Spanish bike maker. The collapsible frame with its two large quick release levers is shared by all three of the new models, and is essentially a direct takeoff from BH’s EMotion brand of e-bikes where it gets the name Volt and a rear hub motor. That quick folding system makes for a bike that takes up little space in the office, home or in-transit in between. BH also says that small black grip just under the rear QR clamp makes it easy to maneuver the Ibiza in its folded state.

The 12.9kg Ibiza Pro White edition however gets its alloy frame and chromoly fork updated, now with added IS tabs and disc brakes for more reliable stopping (it still has the vestigial v-brake tabs though.) In the photos we’ve seen (BTW, we didn’t Photoshop the bike into that top image), the 450€ folder looked to drop the accessories like a rack & fenders in lieu of getting around town more quickly. But the bike spec says that fenders & the rear rack (but not that kickstand) are included.

If you are looking for full urban practicality, the standard Ibiza Pro could be your bet. The rim brake bike comes complete with full coverage fenders, a rear rack, a kickstand and even a bike bell. Minus the disc brake tabs, it sells for the same 450€, with the same big 52T chainring & chain guard, paired to a 6-speed 14-28 cassette out back. The rim brake bikes opt for Kenda Slick Street tires for the 18″ wheels.

The standard Ibiza cuts spec back a bit getting down to just 400€ with a slightly less adjustable telescoping stem & heavier crank setup. Otherwise the 13.2kg bike shares the same frameset, wheels & accessories as the other rim brake folder.

Any of the three though should offer an affordable city bike that won’t take up a ton of space, no matter where you ride them.
