Carbent Raven

Finally, a dual 700 highracer design that is meant for all-out speed!

So...why 700c wheels? Their larger size provides lower rolling resistance and better shock absorption. Also, given the same hip angle as the classic Sea Dragon, the seat is more reclined and the bottom bracket is higher for better aerodynamics. Combined, these two variables add up to a faster, more comfortable ride!

And when the basic components just won't do, upgrade it! Combine a beautifully hand-built frame with quality components, including American Classic wheels, FSA Carbon cranks, and a Dura Ace drivetrain, and you get a bike that is truly irresistable.

Have you ever ridden a recumbent with a fixed seat? Gone are the days of the swiveling or sliding seat in sprints and hard accelerations. Instead, every watt of energy goes directly to your rear wheel. With a custom Carbent design, Carbent can set up your seat to your preferred angle, and you also get a set of custom-bent handlebars to ensure optimal positioning.

Roll wrap tubes are used as standard, and have a glossy black finish and look like the Stealth Bomber! Carbent's tubes are custom wrapped to their exact Carbent HPV specifications and have a weight limit of 250 pounds.

Filament wound carbon fiber tubes are available as an option, yield an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, and show that beautiful woven carbon fiber finish. These tubes are also custom-wound to Carbent's specifications; the fibers have a breaking strength of 800,000 psi (as a comparison, titanium 3/2.5 is 89,900 psi and Aluminum 7005 is 50,800 psi). The weight limit is 230 pounds.

You want true recumbent performance and comfort? The obvious choice is the Carbent Raven.
