Lightning Bicycles

While recumbents are becoming more and more popular, only Lightning has a 16 year history of building record breaking recumbents for cycling enthusiasts around the world.

All Lightnings are designed by top aerospace engineers, thus taking cycling out of 100 years of dark age design, and into modern NASA-like engineering. As a result, Lightning bikes have earned over 20 world records. You say you're not a racer? Well, just as the space program produced technologies useful for ordinary automobiles, Lightning has taken what they've learned from demanding race bike engineering, and applied it to the full range of Lightning bikes. Additionally, to ensure top quality, Lightnings are hand built at their modern facilities in California by skilled craftsman who have decades of experience constructing and operating jet aircraft, space satellites, and large rockets.
