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.
