It has been few days since Terra Trike introduced the new version of their very popular Gran Tourismo model. You have probably noticed it already, but if not, here is the press release from TT.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — For spring 2021, TerraTrike is going big with an ambitious new model inspired by its popular Gran Tourismo, and the result is a faster, more stable and more comfortable ride. The Gran TourismoSport, or GTS, is TerraTrike’s entry to the growing category of all-road endurance cycling – it’s quick enough to jump into a fast group ride, but comfortable enough for hours-long gran fondos.
The GTS boasts a 7000 series alloy frame with redesigned wishbone seat stays and duplex chain stays in the rear end to maximize tracking and power transfer. Up front, a new, larger-diameter boom resists twisting under high-power efforts. The result is an incredibly snappy and efficient driveline with razor-sharp tracking and handling.
“This new GTS is second only to our all-out performance trike when it comes to pure speed,” said TerraTrikeSales and Marketing Director Marshall Randall. “But what really sets it apart is the level of comfort you get here. In the past you would have had to compromise on comfort, handling or ride quality to get this much free speed out of a trike, but what our designers have accomplished with the GTS is truly special: Enoughspeed to satisfy anything short of an hour-record attempt, and enough comfort to make it all the way through RAGBRAI with a big smile, which, honestly, is the only way to do it.
”TerraTrike’s all-new 2021 GTS comes equipped with a smooth and capable Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain(22 gears total) and Shimano Deore hydraulic disk brakes that set the benchmark in power, modulation and ease of use. No more white-knuckle descending. The new adjustable Sport Touring Seat incorporates a mesh air channel and adjustable upper back section for a highly customizable ride. GTS is available in two colors, Molten Red and Fog Gray and retails for $2,999.
