Many hands (in the wild) make light work
All it takes is one look at our Twin and it is perfectly clear that this bike will withstand even the harshest conditions. However, you will appreciate its main characteristics even on short trips. They include the low seating position of the front rider, two truly recumbent positions of both riders, as stiff frame contributing to the stability and safety of riding, and the sturdy folding mechanism. In our opinion, AZUB Twin is the best recumbent tandem in the world. In 2016, we have brought some improvements and the bike’s users are thrilled. Those who use it to race around on Florida’s cycle paths as well as those who have chosen it to travel around the world with. After all, riding in twos is fantastic. You experience every single detail together, share every experience, enjoy each descent and labour on each ascent, together experiencing the same feelings. Riding a tandem is about cooperation, harmony, sharing and about of two people living one dream.
Around the house and around the world
We have originally developed the AZUB Twin as a testing prototype which we wanted to use to verify some technical solutions used on single bikes. We wanted to know what load they would take and how long they would be able to withstand it. Therefore, the first two prototypes have undergone extensive testing in Eastern Europe. Honza Galla, who is an essential part of our team, and his wife Eliška took both prototypes on a journey through Hungary, Romania, Greece and Ukraine and gained a lot of experience. After a few years, we returned to our recumbent tandem project and created a true Twin. A bike with a long wheelbase that provides a stable ride, dual rear suspension for maximum comfort even with large loads, extremely stiff yet folding frame; a bike which we will build for you according to your requirements in either the swift version with beautiful Truvativ Firex cranks and Shimano XT components, or in the heavy duty version with the 14-speed gearbox in the Rohloff hub and a set of racks able to carry up to four sets of rear cycling bags! Therefore, with such a bike you can set off on any journey you can think of. Let yourself be inspired by the challenging expeditions of adventurers who took the Twin for example on a journey from France to Australia or even around the whole world.
AZUB Twin is a truly unique bike which always attracts attention. Even when we are building it in our company, it draws all members AZUB team near, we go and watch the boys in the workshop while wishing to take it for a ride ourselves. The Twin smells of faraway places, but it also exudes technical beauty and perfection.
Smooth adjustment of the seat
Ever since we started back in 2000, we have always 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, in which both the angle and the pedal distance were 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.

IT IS SIMPLY UP TO YOU
It does not matter whether your biggest wish is a bike in Ferrari red or a sky blue one, whether you dream at night of an aggressive looking number or a sporty specimen, of a sophisticated stylish model or of pure comfort. Neither does it matter whether you are planning short, relaxing trips or long expeditions which might take several months. We can help you fulfil an incredible number of wishes. And regardless of whether we will be configuring and building you a bike in the very basic version or one with all the cutting-edge elements, you can rest assured we will take the same care. For us, the aim is simply to see a happy person with a smile on his or her face every time they get on their bike.
For years, we have tried not to restrict our cyclist customers in the selection of components they can have on their bicycles. After all, there are so many different people with so many different tastes and needs. Plus, the world of cycling is bursting with interesting solutions. Therefore, we can offer you both a traditional shifter with a triple crankset as well as the unique Pinion gearbox, or the Shimano Alfine Di2 electronic shifting. Likewise, you may want to ride on tarmac roads with tyres as thin as a sheet of paper or you might just prefer the comfort of wide balloon tyres. That is why we have such a wide range of components. Nevertheless, if you happen not to find what you need, do not despair. Feel free to contact one of our dealers or us directly. We will be happy to help you find the right combination of components.
As well as our wide range of components, we also offer an extensive list of accessories you can mount on your bike. Well, you cannot be expected to be happy with the same rack and the same lights when commuting to work and when cycling in rough terrain. And because we enjoy both commuting to work and revelling in rough terrain, as well as riding across the continent, we do have an idea of what might come in handy. Moreover, we listen to our customers and we listen very carefully. So it is often you, who come up with a great idea. You try it out and then we will start producing it again, for you.
Bikes for everyone
Not everyone on this planet is lucky enough to be healthy, fully mobile and able to set off wherever they want at the drop off a hat. Helping people with a variety of physical health problems or even psychological problems gives our business a completely different dimension. And because cycling is often one of the few ways such people can enjoy outdoor exercise, we are always overjoyed when we manage to build a bike for someone who really needs it. In our offer you will therefore find features such as brakes and shifting mounted only one side, the Shimano Di2 electronic shifting that requires very little force to control, or a rarity such as push brakes. Please, take a look at all the solutions we are able to offer and build for you and let us know if you require something else entirely, we will try to build a bike even for you. The thing is, we want to build bikes for everyone!
Made in the Czech Republic
We are very proud to be personally acquainted with the person who welds our frames, to know who then paints them and who operates the laser with which all the necessary holes are burned into the tubes. We are equally pleased with the fact that we employ our neighbours and friends and that most of them have been working for us for many years now. Apart from some ordinary components such as derailleurs or tyres, our bikes are made in the Czech Republic with some components sourced from nearby Slovakia. This allows us to respond to our customers’ demands rapidly and also to produce small number orders of just several models a year. These bikes could not be created in Asia, where volumes are everything, at all. Meet the people who make the wheels turn in AZUB.
