We have been commanding the advancement of the racing tandem market since we debuted the V2 in 2003. Other brands have been striving to compete with the weight, performance, and ride quality of our famous magnesium racing tandems. Now you don't have to be into racing to benefit from the lightweight and supple ride quality you can only get on a Paketa.The R2 is a new benchmark for touring tandems everywhere. Tandem tourers can now go farther with less energy with the exceptionally light R2 performance touring tandem bicycle.The magnesium frame absorbs a great amount of vibration from the road so your body doesn't have to. That means you will be able to ride longer with less fatigue and greater comfort. Our oversized magnesium tubing not only provides an incredible ride quality, it also provides superior stiffness making our tandems some of the best handling tandems on the road. The combination of stiffness and ride quality make the R2 a great option for performance oriented touring tandem riders everywhere.
