Available in three different configurations

M-RacerAn agile, highly manoeuvrable and comfortable bike with a shrewd geometry.

  • The ultimate in compact frame building, resulting in ultra rigid frame
  • Large wheels for lowest possible rolling resistance and maximum comfort
  • Lowest possible seat position in combination with large wheels: seat height 41 cm/16 inch
  • The wheel base measures 123 cm/48.5 inch for high precision handling
  • 3 times 2-point seat mountings for optimal seat-frame connection
  • Longer outer casings run through seperate thinwalled cr-mo tubes inside the main frame
  • M5 Recumbents' smartly-designed shape enables very compact stems compared to other brands. Keep your elbows in a highly aerodynamic "on-board" position!
  • Speed at 250 Watt of this machine in C-version is an incredible 48 km/h or 30 mph!
  • M5 collected in its 30 years of innovation no less than 18 world records, which is a record in itself.
  • Design, manufacturing and racing have always had the highest attention at M5, resulting the fastest bike but one*.

In short: M5, "the Optimal Challenge!"

  • The matted black M-Racer on the picture shows more space between seat and rear wheel, due to the mounting of a smaller size seat.
  • The standard Cr-Mo front forks have an aero shape and are specially manufactured for M5. Riders with an inner leg length of approximately 80 cm/31,5 inch can already use a 26 inch front wheel, without the wheel being able to interfere with the cranks. With the use of a 28" front wheel this will be approximately 85 cm/33,5 inch.
  • The "dormant blue" M-Racer on the picture has wheel sizes 26/28 inch (ETRTO 571/622). The weight with a carbon front fork and seat is limited to 12,4 kg. The standard version will be 1,8 kg extra.
  • Long cables run through the main frame through thin walled tubes.
  • Chain guider bolt is concealed in the frame.
  • The compact stainless steel flexpipers at the handle bar are, of course, standard features.

*) In case you're wondering: that would be the M5 Carbon High Racer!
