WE ARE LUCKY TO BE IN THE BICYCLE BUSINESS. WE KNOW THAT GETTING MORE PEOPLE TO RIDE BIKES EVERY DAY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD FOR BETTER. WE ARE PROUD TO BE A PART OF THAT.
We also know that traditional bikes exclude many who suffer the common musculoskeletal issues associated with riding them regularly. That’s why we’ve re-designed the bicycle. Rather than forcing the human form to uncomfortably and inefficiently conform to a bike, we’ve freed it, delivering beautifully crafted bikes that serve our form.
Our mission at Cruzbike is to make the world a better place by designing, building and selling beautiful ergonomic bicycles for intelligent cyclists who seek superior performance and the freedom to ride farther, faster.
In the process, we seek to delight cyclists at every phase of experience of our brand - from simply learning about our products, to purchase, delivery, service and community.
OUR RECUMBENT BIKES THE CASE FOR YOUR HEALTH
Our bikes are made for intelligent cyclists, for those who challenge the mainstream and reject the outdated bicycle geometry that surrounds us. For those who secretly love it when roadies scoff, then find they can’t drop us on a climb, or at all. Our bikes are made for weekend warriors, commuters, tourers, randonneurs, record-setters and those who just want to take back the joy of cycling.
We are growing the Cruzbike brand with an expanding team, continuing our legacy of innovation and doubling down on our core commitments to you, our customers. Those commitments include innovation in design, excellence in service, integrity in everything we do and giving back.
We seek to delight cyclists at every phase of experience of our brand. We are committed to providing excellent customer service to every member of the Cruzbike community.
We know cycling can change the world and it can do that in more ways than one. That’s why we’re proud to pledge a portion of our profits to 3000 MILES TO A CURE, a nonprofit whose mission is to end brain cancer. We love 3000 Miles to a Cure’s action-oriented approach to its mission and we join them in the expectation that a cure will be found if we work together to fund research.
Our roots are in innovation. It is the DNA of the Cruzbike universe. We do not accept the status quo. We do not sit on our laurels. We take what we have learned and move ever forward to the goal of a better bicycle. When someone tells us it can’t be done, that only makes it more rewarding when we do it.
We hold ourselves to the highest standard of integrity in every facet of our business from customer service to competition.

Like Jim, Robert Holler’s first recumbent was a Cruzbike Conversion Kit. It was one of the first ones made. Since then, he has ridden nearly every style of two-wheeled recumbent and worked in the recumbent industry. Ultimately he returned to Cruzbike as his bike of choice (he now rides a V and a Q) as the best on the market. Cruzbike officially welcomed Robert to the team in 2014.
