Bacchetta Pronto Recumbent

The New Bacchetta Pronto Alto High Racer Recumbent!

It was first seen back in 2019…vague images and video of a rider cruising on a Bacchetta recumbent with electric assist. Dubbed the e-Giro, many riders got excited, eager to finally have an e-assist 2-wheeled recumbent. But as the pandemic unfolded, the project never made it to production.

Fast forward to 2023, at the Cycle-Con in Xenia, OH, Bacchetta debuted the new Bacchetta Pronto to the world! A 26/20 configuration based on the successful Giro A20 recumbent, it was a hit and is now available from Bacchetta and select Bacchetta dealers.

The Pronto Alto Recumbent

And now, the Bacchetta Pronto Alto (tall) recumbent is here! Featuring a bespoke build with your choice of 26" or 700c wheels, amazing components and custom paint and decal colors, this recumbent is sure to please riders looking for a bit more speed in their steed!

The first fully integrated motor system on a two-wheel recumbent!

Motor mount

The Bacchetta Pronto Alto e-assist recumbent features a frame re-welded by our friends at Terracycle, locally sourced powder coating featuring one of our vibrant new colors and meticulous worksmanship as it is painstakenly wired and assembled here at Bent Up Cycles.

The Bafang M510 motor provides 250w of power and an exceptional 95Nm to give any recumbent rider enough power to cruise in any kind of terrain at the push of a button and stroke of the pedal.

Customize your recumbent

Like all of the Bacchetta recumbents, this one can be custom-built to feature the components that riders crave. From the SRAM GX derailleur drivetrain to AXS wireless shifting, from aluminum to carbon fiber forks, a selection of three different seats, and a selection of wheels featuring strong and durable wheels hand-built by Velocity USA in Michigan, there are enough choices for everyone!

Bacchetta bikes can be loaded up with a variety of accessories to meet your riding needs. Carry up to four panniers with the Universal Rear Rack and/or the Terracycle EasyReacher under seat rack. Kickstands, fenders and mirrors are readily available. And for shorter, day rides, Bacchetta offers a variety of bags.
