Where do you want to ride today?

Street Machine Gte. The fast and comfortable world explorer.

The evolution reveals: A small change of your posture can lead to a boost in performance and comfort. Whether you like to enjoy cycling your favourite slope in the hillside, excercise your body on a fast course or commute on the way to work - lean back, relax, and enjoy your bike with a view.

The Street Machine Gte has been designed to to create what is probably the best long distance touring bike you can buy. The ride is exhilarating - fast and controllable - yet you can carry enough gear for a world tour with minimum compromise to handling.

The Street Machine Gte is a new kind of bike; designed and built to offer higher standards of comfort and sophistication. And it has a whole host of features that set it apart from other bikes of its type. A Street Machine does exactly what you want it to do with the minimum of input. It practically rides itself, leaving you free to concentrate on the road ahead, or just to relax and enjoy the scenery. If you have ridden other recumbents you might just be surprised how good they can be. If you have never ridden one, prepare to be amazed.

The cockpit: comfortable ergobars for the under seat steering. Your hands, wrists and neck can relax. The direct connection to the front wheel allows for precise steering. The standard handlebars are 60 cm wirde and their ends are slightly bent forward. As an option, you can order your bike with extra wide (65 cm) handlebars with straight ends. The extra wide handle bars allow for a tighter turning circle, however, the wide arm position slightly increases the aerodynamic drag on your bike. If you choose to order your Street Machine Gte with our ErgoMesh seat, we will always mount the extra wide handlebars.
