NOT all recumbent trikes are created equal.
Hover over the photograph below to find out why we build a better trike:
See how we stack up against the competition.
|Frame||Titanium, aerospace grade, welded.||Hi-ten or 4130 chromoly steel, 6061aluminum, welded.||Greater strength, lighter weight, no paint needed, corrosion resistant.|
|Power Assist||Standard with the T-250, optional with all other models.||Not available.||Easier pedaling, less fatigue, greater range, improved hill climbing, makes cycling available to those with disabilities.|
|Adaptability||Adaptive By Design (ABD), highly adjustable and customizable.||Non-adaptive or partially adaptive.||Better fit, more comfort, meets the needs of diverse groups of people with disabilities.|
|Front Gearset||Patterson planetary bike transmission, fully enclosed.||Conventional bicycle crank arms and chainrings.||Improved shifting, ability to shift while stopped or under full pedaling load, greater safety.|
|Brakes||Sturmey Archer X-SD drum brakes,||Disk brakes.||No loss of braking effectiveness in the rain, lower maintenance.|
|Steering||Ackerman direct steering with integrated hydraulic steering damper.||Non-compensated, damperless.||Improves stability while cornering, no tire scrub. Susceptibility to wobble at speed.|
|Seat||NASA Foam contoured seating, highly adjustable.||Nylon fabric or mesh fabric, no padding or lightly padded, conventional foam, limited adjustability.||Greater comfort, greater adjustability for better fit, molds to each person's shape. Ability to ride longer distance in comfort.|
|Seat Height||Mid-level||Very low, low, or mid-level||Easier mounting and dismounting, more natural and familiar body position.|
