Volae - 26/20" Century
Your Price: $2,195.00
The 26/20 frame has a slightly longer wheel base, a new head tube angle, an adjustable boom and more seat adjustment range for better fore/aft weight distribution for even more stable handling.
This all purpose recumbent bike is great for commuting, touring, recreational rides or fast rides with your bike club buddies. It does it all and does it with style, thanks to top end components and disc brakes. Those who want a fast bike, but prefer a lower bottom bracket and seat height compared to high racers, will love the Century.
Keeping with its do-it-all attitude, the Century still has plenty of room for fatter tires and fenders, and more than enough capacity for touring. Need one recumbent bike to do it all? This is it.
The adjustable seat combined with the adjustable boom enables properly fitting a wide range of rider sizes. The 26/20 Voyager fits riders from ~4’ 11” to 6’ 2” and X-seams from ~37” to 46”.
NOTE: The Comfort Carbon seat(small through x-large) comes stock on the Century, but can be swapped out for the Comfort Mesh seat for an even exchange.
