electric cruiser bike

Introduction

Cruiser bikes are a unique design of bike born in the USA in the 1930’s originally conceived by the bike manufacturer Schwinn. Cruiser bikes employ a frame design that allows the rider to sit in an upright position, making them extremely easy and comfortable to ride. As the name implies, they are for leisure bike riding or cruising.

Pedego offers three different Comfort Cruiser bikes. The Classic Comfort Cruiser, the Step-thru Comfort Cruiser and the Mini Step-thru Comfort Cruiser.

A defining characteristic of the Comfort Cruiser Series is the colour choices available. There is a large selection, unrivalled in the electric bike market. To see each bike in detail and close up visit the product section of the website where you can easily navigate between all options.

Please note the colour choices are different for each model in the cruiser bike series.

Comfortdaown tube angle

Our Cruiser Series of electric bikes are extremely comfortable to ride. This largely comes from the famous Cruiser bike design which allows an upright seating position. The principle design element facilitating this is the angled down tube. This allows your feet to be further forward relative to the saddle than on other bikes. See the difference in angle between the Cruiser bike and Commuter bike here.

Added to this are the cow horn handlebars, which reach back at you rather than you leaning forward to reach them.

Completing the all-round comfortable ride is the ample cruiser style saddle we provide with every cruiser bike. The saddles are sculpted and packed with padding so you can cruise around for hours with no discomfort what so ever.

Cruiser bikes are also famous for balloon tyres. These are slightly wider than normal. The benefit being they offer suspension support while you ride. Normally wider tyres would mean more drag and slower riding on the road, but with electric power you don’t have to worry about that. We use Schwalbe balloon tyres. Read more about them and their suspension giving properties here.
