Cruiser bikes, sometimes lovingly called Beach Cruisers, are similar to hybrid bikes in that they are deigned for casual riding and feature a comfortable, upright riding position with a large, comfortable seat. Cruisers have wide tires, and handlebars that are even more upright and swept further back than traditional hybrid bikes. Cruisers can be single speed or feature multiple gearing options and have either a coaster brake or hand brakes, depending on the model. The styles and colors vary greatly.
Electra Cruiser bikes feature flat-foot technology where the rider can side low enough to put their feet flat on the ground when stopped, but can still get a full leg extension during pedaling.
