We never liked the term “Cruiser” because most of us remember them as heavy, sluggish bikes from the past. But we do like to “cruise”. This modern interpretation of the cruiser lets you enjoy rolling in comfort and style without the baggage and weight of the past. It’s a simple bike and your best friend at the same time. Always there for you and ready to ride when you are — for basic transportation in your neighborhood or a scenic ride along the beach. As the name “Upright” implies, these bikes have a carefully designed riding position that’s comfortable and upright while allowing you to stand up and use your body weight to pedal, which gives you the power and torque to climb hills much more easily. Think of this bike less like a comfy couch that will put you to sleep and more like an ergonomically designed office chair that’s comfortable, but with a task in mind. One simple bike. The Upright bike.
When Benno made a Ballooner prototype a few years ago, they found that they enjoyed riding it more than any other bike. The very balanced geometry is comfortable and sporty, which allows for a longer, more purposeful ride. Elevated specs, including Tektro rim brakes and 8-speeds, provide a smooth, almost effortless riding experience. The big, plush tires provide a comfortable and controlled ride. Studies have proven that in many road conditions quality high volume tires actually have less rolling resistance than skinny tires. In most urban settings, you'll often find yourself on rougher, less than perfect roads – another situation made better by a wider tire. All in all, the Ballooner is a real gentleman: humble, polite, elegant and extremely capable. A modern retro-style everyday commuter.
It's a warm mid-summer evening and you have nothing planned—what to do? Take a cruise down main street with your Low Roller, that's what. With its hand-polished alloy frame, Serape-inspired saddle, and all of the polished chrome bits you'd ever want, the Low Roller brings pedal-powered low rider style to your garage. And with its lightweight alloy frame and fork, nine speeds of "go fast" gearing, stable and wide 650B tires, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, this Roll has everything you need to make tossing that rusty ol' beach cruiser in the trash an easy decision. Do your ride a favor and Roll your own. - The Roll is made from our A1 Premium Aluminum, and it features our Ground Control Positioning that makes it easy to put a foot down when stopped. This Roll also comes ready with rack/fender mount, making it easy to carry extra weight. - Wide diameter, 650B x 2.3" Nimbus II Sport Reflect tires provide excellent traction, stability, and cushioning, which creates a safer, more reliable, and more comfortable ride on either paved or dirt roads. Plus, the reflective accents of the tire increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Equipped with a Body Geometry "The Cup" saddle, with a special Serape theme that's exclusive to the Low Roller, you can expect a supreme level of comfort anywhere you ride. It delivers on these expectations by "cupping" your sit bones, which reduces pressure without feeling obtrusive or constraining.
