35 Mile Range. 36 MPH in Race Mode. 2 Hour Re-charge.

The CRUZ is a classic California cruiser with design elements reminiscent of the American Art Deco movement. The CRUZ evokes a bygone era.

Offering the same best-in-class performance as the Tracker, the CRUZ leads the industry with a top speed of 36 mph in race mode. Regenerative breaking, coupled with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disk brakes, provides riders with stop-on-a-dime control. The CRUZ’s top-caliber components include a sandcast aluminum battery box, powerful LED lighting, Phil-Wood front hub, and a Brooks England Ltd leather saddle and grips. A powerful 52-volt battery gives the CRUZ 35 miles of ride capability and requires minimal charge time – it takes just two hours to fully recharge. The stained alder wood frame inlay and cast pewter name badge sings the final note for this model’s signature look, which starts at $4, 995.

Race Mode

Race Mode is an optional upgrade, which utilizes a 3, 000 watt rear hub motor that rapidly accelerates the rider to 36 Miles/Hour (58 Km/Hour). The battery outputs a steady 60 amps at 52 volts. With that amazing powerhouse and a feather light chromoly steel frame, the CRUZ packs a punch. Welcome to the ride of your life. Race Mode is intended for off road use only. Simply remove the Race Mode key to switch back into street legal mode to comply with local regulations including USA and EU standards.

The Battery

The heart and soul of the CRUZ, our patent pending aluminum battery box is beautifully designed and locally sand cast in Santa Clara, CA. This special housing protects crucial electrical components, including the 702 watt hour lithium battery. It also disperses heat, allowing our high performance system to run at lower temperatures, significantly increasing efficiency, providing a range of 35 miles.

Regenerative Braking

Smoothly decelerate while re-charging the battery with the tap of the regenerative braking button. This maximizes the range, guaranteeing you’ll go 35 miles on a charge, even when riding requires heavy braking. The heart of our drivetrain, the 3-phase brushless electric motor, recoups energy that is typically wasted in brake use. A sophisticated computer located in the battery box provides smooth anti-lock braking. Combined with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc brakes, the CRUZ stops on a dime.

Shimano Alfine Disc Brakes

Utilizing the most trusted name for hydraulic disc brakes in the cycling community, Shimano Alfine provides the CRUZ with trusted technology and unsurpassed braking performance.

Schwalbe Fat Frank Tires

The CRUZ’s tires come in two flavors, midnight black and a light cream. Equipped with Schwalbe Fat Frank’s, these tires provide a soft ride while reducing friction to maximize range. Woven with KevlarGuard, a bullet-stopping, impenetrable material that protects against flats.

Wood Tank

The CRUZ’s hand crafted alder wood tank inlay is the final note on a singular design – and truly sets the bike apart.

Tactile Control

Our unmatched attention to clean and simple controls makes the CRUZ the easiest, and most fun ride you’ll experience – no complicated gadgets here.

Phil Wood Hubs

Our Phil Wood CNC machined aluminum front hubs provide a bombproof, super-smooth ride. Founded in 1971, Phil Wood & Co. is proud to be one of the oldest American cycling component manufacturers. Their hub is manufactured and assembled in San Jose, CA.

Headlight and Taillight

Our steel and chrome plated headlight is custom crafted and powered by one of the brightest LED bulbs in the industry. A proprietary billet mount ensures stability. An optional rear taillight upgrade offers enhanced safety, a must for night riders. These lights run off the main battery with wiring integrated into the frame. No wires or batteries to worry about.
