The primary beach cruiser model was popularized in the 1930s, giving today's model an appealing vintage look. Including classic accessories such as chrome fenders, white wall tires, and a front basket full of fresh flowers harkens even further back to this iconic design.
The cruiser bicycle is a larger, heavier subset of hybrid bicycles. Their heavier frame and larger balloon tires give them more structural stability when riding over surfaces such as sand or gravel, making them the ideal model for slow speed pleasure riding.
A beach cruiser is typically single speed, which not only simplifies the day-to-day riding experience, but results in reduced maintenance. An upright seating posture, padded saddle, and easy-reach handlebars allow for a natural, upright riding position.
Cruisers are designed specifically for ease of use, dependability and comfort, rather than speed, allowing you to take in the sights and scenery around you. They transition easily from sand to pavement and are often the best choice for short distance commuting and pleasure riding.
