Are you more interested in touring than in racing? Then the Paseo may be your type. It is the most comfortable Nazca in the medium-high recumbent segment.
The Paseo is very suitable for intensive commuting, but also for a cycling holiday with luggage and occasionally a large hill. The many adjustment options make it an all-purpose friend, suitable for anyone with a body height from 160 to 190 cm.
No longer available as complete bike/framekit. Parts can be bought in our web-shop.
The Paseo consists of high quality, reliable CrMo steel tube for the heavily loaded frame parts, combined with light aluminium where possible. The chainline has been optimized, so that almost no energy is lost. The small front wheel makes the bike very suitable for people with a smaller stature.
adjustable spring tension
The Paseo has front and rear suspension with adjustable spring tension and damping, the MEKS Carbon suspension fork has been the best for 20" wheels for many years. Standard equipped with powerful Avid BB7 disc brakes.
version with aerosteer
The aerosteer version of the Paseo offers great control over the bike and an open, active posture for the arms. This rides very relaxed. The turning circle with aerosteer handlebars is somewhat larger than with a tiller steer, but this is seldom a problem. The aluminium aerosteer is adjustable in length and height.
Front suspension is especially important for the riding comfort when using a 20" front wheel. The suspension used can be optimally adjusted with the turning knobs for pre-load and damping.
The Paseo is suitable for a lot of luggage. You can use both banana bags and regular bicycle bags.
With the shock absorber adjustment, the geometry of the bike can be adapted to the circumstances. This way you have three more or less different bikes, each with its own driving behaviour. This adjustment also changes the seating angle. Extra luggage during a holiday? Simply move the shock absorber to a higher position.

options (scroll l/r)
The headlight is a very powerful Busch und Müller LED lamp, type Cyo Premium T senso plus 3W/6V. A top-quality German brand with a luminous intensity of up to 80 lux. The lamp is equipped with sensor technology so that day and night lighting and standby lighting (3 minutes) can be switched on automatically.
hub-dynamo - SON 28
A hub dynamo is a very reliable and efficient way to generate power for your lighting or GPS. Maintenance-free and completely silent: you won't notice anything at all while riding. The alternator power is 3W/6V.
With the lowrider brackets you can take 2 extra bags with you without any problem, because the extra weight is optimally placed between the wheels. These brackets consist of aluminium tube with a diameter of 12 mm and have a maximum load of 2 x 15 kg. The brackets are suitable for small and large bags, such as Ortlieb's.
hydraulic disc brakes
Hydraulic disc brakes offer a great deal of braking power, can be operated with little manual force and are excellent for dosing. Once properly installed, they are virtually maintenance-free and all you have to do is replace the brake pads from time to time. The maximum disc diameter is 160 mm.
For people with a smaller stature, a crankset with shorter cranks can be mounted, 155 mm instead of 170 mm. In general, this gives more play compared to the front wheel, a higher pedal cadance and less flexion and stress on the knees.
Many recumbent cyclists like a headrest. The support is fully adjustable and therefore always fits. The stainless steel bars can be bent slightly for the correct position of the support.
The Pletscher stand is solidly attached to the rear forks. A kickstand is an indispensable part of your recumbent in daily use.
Ventisit has been a popular brand for recumbent cushions for many years. The material has a very good ventilation effect, offers a lot of comfort, does not absorb any water and has a long life span. The cushion is attached with velcro and can therefore be removed quickly.
Colour is important. Do you have special requirements? We can supply a large number of non-standard colours as an extra option. Please let us know which RAL number you want. Then we will check if we have the colour available.
