Superior aerodynamics set you loose on the Cruzbike Vendetta V20 performance recumbent road bike

"The V20 is just plain fast. I ride it mostly when I'm racing and there really is nothing else like it. In the bigger races that allow drafting I'm always fighting the urge in the early stages of the race to just take off and drop the group versus conserving energy and riding in the draft. The bike just wants to go fast, sometimes it's hard to hold it back!"

THE V20 DRIVE SYSTEM: SIMPLE AND POWERFUL

Our drive system is what sets us apart from other recumbent bikes. It is a compact tetrahedron that links the upper and lower body across the drivetrain as it rotates around the axis of the head tube. This linkage allows you to boost power when climbing or sprinting by engaging the upper body in much the same way professional cyclists do when they climb or sprint on standard road bikes.

It also means you'll run a standard length chain and have access to the cutting edge in performance component technology.

The V20 frame set includes the frame, front triangle, carbon fiber seat and cushion, headrest and cushion, custom-designed handlebar and grip tape. Add the frame set to your cart then choose your build package below. Or work with your local bike mechanic to craft your build using our detailed drawings and instructions, downloadable from the V20 Resources on this page.

ACCESSORIES

Carbon Fiber Race Case

It's wind tunnel and race-tested. Any storage container that makes you and your bike MORE aerodynamic is worth its weight in... carbon fiber.

The Carbon Fiber Race Case is designed to be beautiful, aero, and practical. It ships with all parts needed to run it with two easily reachable bottles or with a bladder (up to two liters, plus enough room for your tube change kit) and it's quick and easy to install. The rear of the case includes a utility pole for affixing your rear light.

Ventisit for V20 or S40

The Ventisit seat pad has an open structure with a layer of air between you and the seat, nearly eliminating a sweaty back. It is 3 oz, (85 grams) lighter than the standard Cruzbike cushion and provides noticeable suspension, but it's not too soft. The material does not absorb moisture and you only need to shake it after a rain shower. It is shaped to fit the unique Cruzbike carbon fiber seat. The Ventisit does not damage clothing, but can feel a little rough on bare skin. Ventisit pad fits the Silvio 2.0, Vendetta, S30, and V20.

Performance Adjustable Headrest

Dial in fit and position for maximum comfort and speed.

Moose Pack

A customer-designed masterpiece that attaches easily behind the seat of the Cruzbike Vendetta V20. It fits ride necessities and improves aerodynamics.

Scarab Bag for V20 and S30

Lightweight,weather resistant, high volume carry all designed for the Cruzbike Vendetta V20 and Silvio S30. This bag fits underneath the seat and wraps the frame for an ideal weight placement. The Scarab takes less than a minute to install. Easily fits your tools, a change of clothes plus a small laptop or your tablet for a commute or longer ride. Its placement does not distract from the aerodynamics and even when loaded does not affect the handling. Add to cart to choose V20 or S30 version.

Curved Slider for V20 or S30

The curved slider is designed to lower the handlebars for better visibility, or to raise the handlebars for more clearance by 40mm up or down. It is a direct replacement for the current model S30 (White), and Black/Hand Painted V20, and Red V20 only. This slider also features bottle cage mounts, just like the stock slider.

Sling Pack

The Cruzbike Sling Pack works perfectly to carry your tools and tubes, a cell phone, a small air pump, snacks, keys and even a light jacket or arm warmers. It is water resistant with zippered pockets inside to keep small items from rolling around.

Cruzbike Bottle Cage

Light weight, anodized alloy side and top-pull cage that works for either left or right. It weighs only 47 grams. Pick up two for each of your Cruzbikes.

Headrest Cage Mount Kit

This twin bottle cage kit is a modification of an existing performance cage kit made for traditional frame bicycles. It has been modified for the Vendetta and Silvio headrest by one of our customers. It holds two bottle cages in an aerodynamic, easy-to-reach position behind the Vendetta or Silvio headrest.

Utility Post Add-on for Cage Mount Kit

Mount your rear light, camera, or other lightweight accessories.

Light Mount Kit

This light mount clamps to the lower cross bar on the Vendetta V20's front fork. It works with the standard and large chainstay sizes (small has no cross bar).

Zefal Spy Mirror

A versatile, lightweight mirror that mounts with no tools required. Universal mounting. This mirror works with all our bicycles.

TiGr Mini Lock

TiGr Locks are secure, simple, lightweight, easy to use, easy on the eyes and hand crafted in the USA. This lock is simply the best lock we've found for use with all Cruzbike models.
