The Verano seating position is tuned just right to avoid some
problems that more reclined recumbent bikes often have. Its seating
is less reclined than the seating/pedal relationship used on many
(especially European "low-racer" and American "high-racer")
recumbent bicycles. The rider's neck is still easily held in a
neutral position on the Verano; you don't have to strain to hold
your head up, or settle for bouncing your head on a headrest.
Unlike many low-racers and high-racers, one's knees and the
handlebar (once adjusted) aren't up in the line of sight. The
Verano seating position also puts it at the limit of what can be
faired without the fairing getting in the line of sight and
obscuring the road ahead.
The aerodynamic efficiency of the Verano has not been measured.
Racing and group riding indicates that it is faster than common
long-wheelbase recumbent bicycles with low bottom brackets, and
suggests the naked bike might be roughly comparable to an upright
road bike with lycra-clad rider 'on the tops'. A tailbox can raise
its cruising speed by several percent, and a front fairing can add
a few more percent.
Though most often outfitted with narrow high-pressure tires, the
versatility of the Verano lends itself to the kinds of uses
(commuting, trail riding) that require fatter tires, which it
