An interesting press release came from Catrike today.

ORLANDO, Fla. 5/18/23 Catrike announces the launch of the new MAX. The all-new MAX is Catrike’s latest model that will captivate even more riders. It offers a higher/wider seat and incorporates a larger diameter Cross-Member and wide sturdy rims to accommodate 425 lbs / 193 kg of rider weight and gear. The most robust model within the Catrike line with a 34” track and wider 16” seat, the user-friendly MAX is designed for fun and adventure.

The MAX features a SRAM 1×11 TT500 shifter, APEX derailleur and cassette paired with an FSA Omega 42 MegaTooth crankset for smooth and reliable shifting. Avid BB7 disc brakes with Catrike locking brake levers provide reliable and controlled stops. Padded seat mesh, clipless pedals, rear fender, hand rest, Catrike’s patented Peace Boom, flag and flag holder along with Ackerman steering all add to the value of this Made in USA Catrike. It is available in eight beautiful Catrike colors, XL booms and a Bosch-powered, electric-assist eCAT version.

The MAX also comes equipped with Catrike’s new Assist Bars to help support the rider when getting in and out of the seat. The new assist bars are now available on Catrike’s B2B site and are designed to retrofit all Catrike models. 

The MAX is now available at Catrike dealers. MSRP: $3350, MAX eCAT: $6,250
