The Corsa SS is a race spec’d version of our popular Corsa recumbent, making it one the best equipped and best priced performance recumbents on the market. Upgrade to the Bacchetta Carbon seat and you’ll have a bike that few other manufacturers can match.
A word about the Bacchetta line of performance recumbents- Bellwether. Merriam-Webster’s definition is as follows: One that takes the lead or initiative. When we introduced our Strada and Aero models in 2001, we changed the perception of recumbents. When we introduced the aluminum Corsa in 2005, we shredded the misconception that high performance equals high cost. We weren’t the first to introduce the dual big wheel format, we were the company who made it work! And while our designs have spawned an entire market of Bacchetta wanna-be’s, none of them match the track record of Bacchetta performance recumbents through real world riding. We go to the races. We have the most renowned recumbent racing team on the planet in Team Bacchetta. While others companies spend a lot of time talking about how fast their bikes are, we’re out there proving it. If you want real world performance and are ready to walk the walk, you start at the top. You start with Bacchetta, the bellwether of performance recumbents!
