Cruzbike T50

The Ultimate Recumbent Bike Cruiser

Kick back and get laid back on the most epically comfortable cruiser ever. When we launched the T50 recumbent road bike cruiser on Kickstarter it was fully funded in less than 48 hours. It's our simplest frame design ever. But don't let its simplicity fool you - it leverages more than a decade of experience making our fast, comfortable, fun-to-ride recumbent road bikes.

Safe city riding

Ride with great visibility

Look forward to riding with your head up, naturally and comfortably at eye level with drivers on your next foray to the coffee shop, farmer's market or local brewery.

Easily add accessories

Customize your T50 Cruiser

The T50 is ready for whatever accessories you want on your cruiser. Add a rack, panniers or a basket to carry everything from beach blankets to groceries to your laptop. Mount lights, install fenders, add a bell - you get the picture. The T50 is your canvas for creativity and cruising.

It's everything awesome about riding a bike, without the parts that hurt.

If pain is keeping you from the adventure, camaraderie and fun of cycling, you're not alone. 85% of recreational cyclists report pain in their wrists, back, neck and/or groin after a ride. (Source: International Journal of Sports Medicine). The T50 is an ergonomic bicycle that lets you sit back comfortably rather than crouch over the handlebars. This riding position saves your neck, back, wrists, groin, and quite possibly your sex life by relieving the pressure caused by the traditional bike riding position.

    Front Triangle

    Custom designed power triangle with telescoping inner tube plus oversized 34.9 mm outer tube for additional stiffness, constructed from quality 7005 T6 aluminum alloy.
