AZUB MAX is a chariot you will fall in love with. When you sit on it, you cannot but beam with delight. Or even squeal with joy. This bike runs like clockwork, it devours all straight roads like nothing before and going downhill is a never ending joy. With its two large 26” wheels it is a recumbent like none other. The rear suspension is supplied as standard, and together with the optional front suspension, the AZUB MAX is a comfortable and fast bike which turns a road full of potholes into a smooth asphalt thoroughfare.
Fun through and through:
A robust main frame tube extending from the boom to the rack. An asymmetrical organically shaped rear fork. A pulley following the movement of the chain. Robust appearance. All this makes the MAX an icon which hundreds of cyclists have fallen in love with. The AZUB MAX will make you feel that you can do absolutely anything, go round your town ten times or conquer a continent. Everything is possible and anything you decide will be incredible fun.
The MAX is a recumbent bike for active cyclists who enjoy a fast ride and great challenges. Unlike our recumbents with a 20” front wheel and 26” rear wheel, it has a more sporty seating position, characterized by the crankset being placed higher than the bottom of the ergonomic seat. The rider is thus better seated and can put more power in the pedals.
Bigger is better:
AZUB comes from the Czech Republic and for Czechs, cycling is the most common sport. Bicycles are not used here only for transport, but people like spending their free time on them. That is also why mountain bikes are so popular. When Aleš Zemánek was building his first recumbent bike, he even then intended to create a very comfortable bike that could be used in many terrains. And he didn’t want to make any compromises in ergonomics or durability, so mountain bikes were his inspiration. Just the rider’s position was something he wasn’t keen on. However, at the very beginning he embarked on the traditional European concept, a recumbent with a 20” front wheel and 26” rear wheel. Nevertheless, customers soon made it clear that large wheels were what tempted their interest. Therefore, there soon appeared an AZUB MAX with both wheels in size 26”. And since mountain bikes were Aleš’s inspiration, it is not surprising that the MAX has been kitted out with proper suspension, high-quality components, has superior handling and is extremely durable. So it happens that since 2004, AZUB MAX brings joy to people who follow the motto “bigger is better”.
