  • Benno Ballooner 8D Roadster Cacao City Bike



$999.99   $599.99





We currently have 2 in stock.

Benno's Ballooner bike perfectly walks the tightrope between comfortable cruiser bikes and practical urban commuters. The frame geometry, stationary stem matched with wingback handlebars, and wide seat gives you the moderate position needed to bear down and get up those hills while allowing for a more relaxed position on flat terrain when the view is too good to miss. Beautiful 2.35" tires are just wide enough to make streetcar tracks less scary and take the grimace out of rough roads under construction, but still narrow enough to get a ton of wind in your hair on breakaway stretches full of green lights.    

The Ballooner's not just a pretty face - Benno doesn't skimp on attention to technical detail. An 8-speed Shimano Altus drivetrain gives you more than enough gears for city riding and rim brakes add sturdy, reliable stopping power. The aluminum alloy frame gives you lightweight portability, while the steel fork absorbs bumps where it matters to take the stress of rough roads off your wrists. Melted down, all these features combine to help the Ballooner punch way above its weight when comparing it to a vintage beach cruiser bike.

With a bike this comfortable and fun, you can ride dawn till dusk and enjoy every minute of it.

BENNO COMPANY PROFILE: While Benno has only been around since 2015, German-born founder Benno Baenziger is certainly no stranger to the cycling industry. Since his days as a founder of Electra Bicycle Company right to modern times, the industry veteran has dedicated his life and business to finding new ways to reinvent bike design to both inspire and empower the rider. Benno bikes are a reflection of this vision - their geometry is unlike most "traditional" bikes, allowing riders to plant their feet more securely, and Benno is a firm believer in the incredible power of e-assist technology, flattening hills, lightening loads and shortening distances. While much of the industry ignores the needs of everyday riders to push their own ideas, Benno bikes are made to serve that rider. Agile, comfortable and just downright fun, Benno bikes are built to keep the everyday rider wanting to ride everyday.
