The future of traveling is here today with the Volae ES frame. Available as a Dual 26” high racer or a 26/20" frame, these bikes make great touring recumbents to take on trips overseas or across the states. You won’t have to compromise performance when you ride a Volae recumbent with the ES option. The cleverly engineered frame separates in the middle to facilitate packing in a standard recumbent bike travel case (see photo) while preserving the high performance that you demand. All frames now come with the adjustable boom, which allows the recumbent bike to fit a wide range of riders, and allows you to pack the recumbent bike down into an even smaller package.
Some travel bikes compromise performance to make the recumbent bike extremely compactable for traveling. Volae chose to retain the legendary Volae performance even though it means that you may have to pay an extra fee to take your recumbent bike with you.
Waterford Precision Cycles is well known for impeccable welding and frame alignment. All Volaes are welded and aligned in Waterford's world-class custom frame facility in Waterford, Wisconsin. You cannot buy a better built, better aligned, better looking recumbent!
NOTE: The Comfort Carbon (small through x-large) comes stock on the Voyager ES, but can be swapped out for the Comfort Mesh seat for an even exchange.
