With the Titan, Trident has successfully achieved everything on the wishlist of customer’s and dealers. First and foremost they sought to insure that the Titan could handle the weight capacity- here’s how they did it. The Frame has thicker tubing, the wheels and spokes are heavier duty, the seat frame as well as the rear seat attachment are now Steel instead of Aluminum as on our other models. The biggest issue by far though was the hinge. There are 2 competing issues with hinges- if you put the hinge on the top it is much easier to fold. If you put the hinge at the bottom it is much much stronger, but it makes it incredibly awkward to fold because you have to lift the hinge up from the center instead of just folding the rear wheel over the top. Trident Trikes always thinks outside of the box , so they thought- “Why not BOTH?! And while we are at it- let’s make the wheel fold flat!”
Trident is pleased to introduce the rotating flat fold hinge. As you can see in the folding sequence, the Trike has a tube in tube design. First you release the locking mechanism, then you can rotate the hinge. Lastly once you have folded the wheel over, you can rotate it to do a flat wheel fold!! This gives us the strength to hold a 400 LB rider !!
The Trident Titan also features adjustable seat height – 14 5/8” to 16 ½” as well as a Quick Release seat angle adjustment. “Helper Handlebars” are also included to make getting and out much easier.
Lastly are components. The Trident Titan will come standard with a Truvativ Crankset (52/42/30) with 165 mm Crankarms , a 9 speed 11-34 cassette and Avid BB5 Brakes. Finally we made the decision to use Trigger Shifters. We love Trigger shifters, but they are not easy to use when they are mounted vertically. Since the Helper Bars are horizontal, it is the perfect choice.
The Trident Titan weighs a ‘svelte’ 44 LBS. The Titan is available in Carolina Blue or Wolfpack Red
