Gaucho 28 highracer tillersteer

The new Gaucho 28 highracer tillersteer combines the best of two worlds: the comfort and speed of the recumbent bike and the beautiful, highly efficient road bike parts.

Lightweight road bike wheels, the latest parts and high-tech tires with very low rolling resistance convert the Gaucho 28 high-racer into a thoroughbred racing bike. Fully adjustable suspension provides much added comfort and improved handling. Due to the efficient chain line and correct placement of the power-idler, hardly any energy is lost in the rear suspension.

The Highracer is available in two frame versions, with another frame connecting plate and a shorter shock absorber, an even faster version with a smaller reclining angle has evolved from the original highracer.

The Gaucho 28 highracer invites to make long trips at high speed, a recumbent bike to push your limits in speed and distance, without the usual cyclist pains!
