The Phantom Quad!
Fun, safety, and high performance!
Experience recumbent comfort, fun, performance, and unmatched safety with the Lightning Phantom Quad! The Phantom Quad combines the two wheel Phantom recumbent bicycle with unique proprietary stabilizer wheels for the safest recumbent available. This layout provides a high seat height for great visibility in traffic, while the outside wheels directly at the center of gravity deliver balanced weight distribution on all wheels, which no other recumbent has for unmatched safety and stability!
The Phantom Quad was designed by experienced engineers using data gained from two decades of top level HPV racing around the world, 20 world records, and feedback from hundreds of Lightning owners. No other recumbent bicycle company has this level of technical expertise and real world experience.
Lightning engineers have designed into the Phantom Quad a comfortable ride, superb stopping and handling characteristics, a high cruising speed, and exceptional durability. Additionally the quick release stabilizer wheels and axle assembly can be quickly removed for transport or other reasons.
High-performance and convenience accessories such as a custom-designed fairing, seat bags, panniers and many accessories are available for the Phantom Quad.
The Phantom is great for any recreational, touring, or commuting cyclist who wants a super safe, high performance, fun to ride, and very comfortable bike. It’s perfect for short or long trips.
Perhaps the best all-around multi-wheel recumbent on the market, the Phantom Quad may be just what you’re looking for!
