MAIN FEATURES

Smooth adjustment of the seat

Even as far back as 2000, we thought that a bike should adapt to the rider and not the other way round. That’s why we used an adjustable seat for our first bike, which had both the angle and the pedal distance adjustable. With each further development stage, we introduced a more accurate adjustment, until 2013, when we reached a stage of adjusting without positions. This concept is based on a sliding sleeve, which we produce in a straight version for our tricycles and some bicycles, as well as in a curved version for recumbents.

Reinforced with glass fibre

The sleeve is made of durable, glass fibre reinforced plastic which we opted for in order to prevent scratching of the paint even during frequent use.


Perfect fit

It is extremely important for the seat to be secure whilst riding, which is why there are two small hard-anodised aluminium parts attached to the lower part of the seat. They fit onto a three-part stainless steel insert that is fitted within the sleeve itself. When you tighten the quick-release, everything slots together nice and tight.


Speed and simplicity

Adjusting the seat is very easy. The upper quick release is used to secure the seat and when you release the lower one, the grip around the frame loosens and the seat can be moved. If you are a heavy rider, the lower quick release must be tightened really firmly.

3 types of steering

You can choose from three different styles of steering. It is either the ASS - above seat steering (or as called in US the over seat steering) or the USS – under seat steering or the OC – open cocpit (or as is called superman position, or in Germany „Udf“.

Super-oversized main frame tube

AZUB frames are recognisable by their central frame tube that carries fixations of all major elements, be it the head tube with the front fork, the seat, the rear fork bracket or the luggage racks. This solution not only gives our bikes a maximal stiffness and solidity, hence stable riding behaviour but also an important carriage capacity of its back carrier. You will utmost appreciate our technical solution when fully loaded with several bags behind you as their weight will not influence the riding performance of your recumbent.

IPS - Ideal Position System

We firmly believe that a bike should adapt to the rider and not the other way round. Therefore, when Aleš designed his first recumbent bike back in 2000, he already tried to make it as adjustable as possible. And today, all our bikes and trikes are like that too. Adjustable features greatly help when learning to ride recumbent. Because when you buy your first recumbent bike, you have no idea if you will prefer sitting more upright or more reclined, you will only be able to decide after many hundreds of miles. With our bikes, adjusting your seating position couldn’t be easier.

Millimetre by millimetre

Two struts with special threads allow you to tilt your seat exactly to the position you want. No matter if you need it set extremely upright or truly reclined. The stability of the whole setup is ensured by two ergonomic locknuts with rubber inserts, and the laser etched markings on each strut make the adjustment very easy.


Smooth adjustment of distance from pedals

The distance between the pedals and the seat can be set not only with the so-called boom, which we usually do according to your height when the bike is built, but also by moving the seat itself. Therefore, when there are two of you taking turns with the bike or when you want to get your friend to try the amazing feeling of reclined riding, you can adjust the seating position on the bike very easily.


Fantastic range of positions for handlebars

The handlebars can be set to an extremely wide range of positions. The way they are set in the stem is the same like in a classic bike. In recumbents with ASS, it is also possible to set the tilt of the stem and the distance of the handlebars from the body, in short, to create the most comfortable seating ever.


Sliding sleeve for the seat

The sliding sleeve is made of glass fibre reinforced plastic. You can set your seat with millimetre precision and it will only take a few seconds as everything is controlled by two red anodized quick releases. Easy, fast, functional.

Movable idler

We’ve eliminated the “pogo effect” by placing chain pulley on Top Line models. Furthermore it is positioned on the axis made of a high quality stainless steel allowing the chain to swing smoothly from the left to the right according to the set up gear. This technical solution lengthens the chain’s lifetime and decreases a resistance that occurred on the fixed positioning of the axis.

Asymetrical rear fork

The design of our asymmetric rear fork we presented at SPEZI 2007 astonished not only recumbent bike riders but also professionals. It is not a gadget for a mere showing of! You can experience the functionality of its original shape and of its unique fit into AZUB frames on Mini, SIX and MAX.

Pogo effect

The radius of this asymmetric rear fork inserting gives plenty of space to the movable chain pulley which eliminates the so-called pogo effect (lateral swinging of a recumbent bike when pedalling rhythmically or using force) and substantially improves the smoothness of a chain circulation. The equilibrium and qualities of the whole construction are assured by the radius of rear shock inserting in the opposite direction.


Stiffness and extremely light weight

The whole rear fork is made of specially designed thin-wall tubes AL 7020. It gives it two essential qualities that you are looking for: stiffness and extremely light weight. The interchangeable rear derailluer hanger of the gear system has become a standard feature of all AZUB models.
