A recumbent bicycle is a bicycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons; the rider’s weight is distributed comfortably over a larger area, supported by back and buttocks. On a traditional upright bicycle, the body weight rests entirely on a small portion of the sitting bones, the feet, and the hands.
Our trikes are for the masses, and the masses demand a no-nonsense, high quality ride. Most of our trikes are designed with a higher seat for better visibility and safety, a turning radius that is tighter than most uprights, and layman-friendly adjustments and assembly for easy transportation.
