The Bacchetta Pronto Alto is the newest bike in our line of electric assist recumbents! Based on the popular Giro A26 and Corsa A70, the Alto gets you there with speed and comfort. And like all Bacchetta recumbents, you can customize the bike to meet your specific riding style.

The classic Bacchetta Giro A26 is built for someone who wants a classic touring/recreational recumbent bike with a little more speed. The lighter A70 with larger wheels is a dedicated speed machine! Whether planning a tour across the country or enjoying a fast ride with friends, the Bacchetta high racer will ensure that you get there fast and in comfort. The Pronto Alto adds the silent and buttery-smooth Bafang M510 mid-drive electric assist system to give you a little more "umph" to get up to speed or climb those steeper climbs. 250w and 95Nm of torque provide more than enough power for all of your riding needs. The 14Ah battery will keep you going on rides up to 75 miles (depending on terrain, power usage and total weight). This "no throttle" system senses the torque you apply while pedaling to ensure a smooth, natural-feeling ride. And with all the cables routed internally, you maintain the sleek look of your favorite bike!

The Pronto Alto features top-notch component options including Velocity USA’s Aileron handbuilt wheels, a SRAM 11 speed drivetrain with smooth-as-silk grip shifters or the bomb-proof, world-reknown Rohloff Speedhub, and TRP Spyre brakes for exceptional stopping power. Choose your seat - for those that want comfort in the most upright position, choose the classic Recurve seat. If you want to recline a little more and save 1.5 pounds at the same time, the B3 seat will work perfectly for you. If you want even more recline, choose the Euromesh seat with your choice of seat pad and save an additional one pound.

Our new custom paint program allows you to choose from one of our five standard colors or upgrade to a color of your choice (Illusion Orange and Illusion Blueberry shown in the pictures). Depending on the options and color you choose, it can take anywhere from 3-5 weeks to build your bike.

The Alto is available in two sizes - medium is designed for riders under 5’8”-6' while large is sized for riders 5’11” and taller. The bike as shown, size large with a Recurve seat, weighs 52.5 pounds
