cruiser / explorer

The Cruiser is the first model developed by Nazca. The qualities with which this bicycle conquered the market in 1999 make the Cruiser still very popular, years later. The Cruiser is a practical, comfortable, solid bicycle that you just ride away. A thoroughly developed bicycle with an excellent price/quality ratio that appeals to both the novice and experienced recumbent rider. Very suitable for e-motor support!

The Explorer is the understeer version of the Cruiser.

Because of the indirect understeering (the handlebars are connected to the fork by a steering rod), the bike has a small turning circle and a relaxed position of arms and shoulders. The Explorer is praised for its comfort and its predictable, easy steering character. The Explorer won the title "recumbent of the year" in 2001 and has remained a popular under-seat recumbent model ever since.

The Cruiser and Explorer have been discontinued in 2021.
