Lightning strikes again with the super light dual-suspension R-84. The sub 3 pound frame is aerospace grade carbon fiber, titanium, and over sized aluminum. The seat is positioned a bit lower than the P-38 and Phantom for even more aerodynamic advantage.
An F-40 fairing can be added to create the most technically advanced high performance bike available!
Can this light bike climb hills? Better than any other recumbent. Because of its lightweight design and aero components, the R-84 will even outperform the F-40 in very hilly areas or on rides that are mostly climbing. If the course is 50% near-flat terrain, the F-40 will be faster; in very steep hills (over 5% average grade), the R-84 will have the advantage.
Specifications listed reflect the R-84 Performance 3×9 configuration. Also available are the R-84 Velocity 2×10 – $6,200; R-84 Super Light 2×10 – $7,200; R-84 Frameset – $3,900.
