The new Lightning Phantom D

Now standard with disc brakes!

We are now accepting pre-orders on the new Lightning Phantom D. All the benefits of Lighting recumbent design, plus all the value of the Phantom, plus disc brakes.

Contact us now for more information how to set aside one of these new beauties for delivery in December.

Note: Rim brakes are no longer available on the large-frame Phantom. Small Phantoms are still available with rim brakes. Once our current stock is sold out, all new Phantoms (both frame sizes) will have disc brakes.
