Product Details

2017 Benno Bikes Ballooner Men’s 8D

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.
