Trident just announced a new recumbent trike model and also a comfy padded seat for their trikes. All available mostly in the USA. Red the press release here under.
Entry level aluminum recumbent trike
Tomcat is a no compromise Lightweight Entry Level Trike. It uses an Aluminum Non-Folding frame, however, the frame can be separated into 2 pieces for transport. Don’t let the price fool you though- Tomcat is packed full of features that you won’t see in other brands at twice the price. Tomcat addresses a niche that is sorely missing in the Recumbent Trike industry. It will fit shorter people with X Seams as low as 33″ but will also fit taller riders. It weighs an incredible 32 1/2 Lbs. so it is easy to lift. Some notable features of Tomcat include Trident’s exclusive Aluminum Seat that adjusts for both height– 14 5/8 Inches (370mm) to 16 1/2” (420 mm) and angle (42-52 degrees), an Aluminum Powder Coated Frame, an Anodized Aluminum Boom, , Shimano 7 Speed Derailleur/Shifter, Mechanical Disc Brakes, a Safety Flag and Alloy pedals- all STANDARD.
The Base Price of a Tomcat is $1399.00!
Tomcat Enviolo/380 is our Upgraded Tomcat model for those who would rather not have a derailleur system. It features the Nuvinci /Enviolo TR system. The TR System is far superior to the cheaper CT system -310% Gear Range for the CT vs 380% for the TR. In addition, the TR system can handle more torque which is important if you decide to install a Mid Drive Motor in the future. Schwalbe Big Apple Tires and Avid BB5 Brakes are standard. Tomcat 380 retails for $1899.00
Many accessories are available for the Tomcat including fenders, rear racks, and a 21 Speed Upgrade Kit.
All Tomcats have Direct Steering. It is only available in Yellow.
The Tomcat is in stock, and available for order directly or through any Trident Trike Dealer.
