The Morpheus adds an extra dimension of comfort and sociability to tandem riding. Instead of the traditional tandem arrangement where the stoker looks directly at the steersman's back, the recumbent front seat of the Morpheus allows both riders an uninterrupted forward view. This seating arrangement makes for a much more comfortable ride for the stoker and brings the riders' heads closer, facilitating relaxed conversation. To make things even easier, the Morpheus comes as standard with a freewheel built into the front cranks so that the stoker can stop pedalling independently of the steersman. The Morpheus configured as a tandem is ideal for leisure, utility and family riding. It works superbly for local trips, for long day rides and laden touring.
