2016/2017 Electra Townie Balloon 8D EQ

You can see the difference right away. But if you think balloon tires look awesome, wait until you take a ride on 'em. There’s magic in these high volume, low pressure Kevlar Guard premium tires. They absorb impact with less rolling resistance to give you a cushy, luxurious ride with added protection against the dreaded flat.

All Townie® Balloons come as EQ models, equipped with color matched fenders as well as front and rear LED lights.

- Lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum frame
- Shimano 8-speed w/Acera derailleur
- Shimano Rapidfire shifter
- Painted alloy fenders
- Forged alloy crankset w/44t chainring/dual guard
- Painted alloy rims w/machined sidewalls
- Schwalbe Fat Frank 26”x 2.35” tires
- Hub dynamo powered Spanninga front and rear LED lights
