RaptoBike is a young Dutch company that focuses on building qualitative yet affordable and practical recumbents. All bikes have been and will be well designed, well made, have high quality components and a very attractive price. Each recumbent is checked before it leaves the factory on it's way to you.

RaptoBike in Velo Vision

The RaptoBike Low Racer recumbent was featured in the September issue of Velo Vision. Velo Vision is the practical cycling magazine from the UK. Some quotes:

  • The Raptobike was a bit of a revelation
  • The Raptobike's front wheel drive is very successful
  • It's probably one of the fastest bikes around which is both relatively practical and affordable: every cycling speed-seeker should get a test ride at least!

I just finished adding the Kurt Kinetic cycling trainers to the shop. Kurt Kinetic offers a full range of air and magnetic resisted trainers. The thing that really makes them stand out, other than the Kurt quality, is the fact that all models can be used with a small wheel adapter. This makes them the perfect trainer for recumbents.
