Cruzbike T50: The Ultimate Cruiser
Kickback and get laid back on the most epically comfortable cruiser ever. When we launched the T50 on Kickstarter it was fully funded in less than 48 hours. It's our simplest, most elegant 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.

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.
