If there are two
wheels in the front and one in the back, it’s a Tadpole. We like those best and those are what we stock. We can of course order others.
The recumbent aspect is the rider sits slightly reclined in a t-shaped frame with a low center of gravity, supporting the body in a mesh seat, fully distributing body weight evenly between the 3 wheels, the pedals are in the front and the drive wheel is in the back. Braking and steering is done in the front wheels via handle bars.
There are nearly 12 dozen manufactures of recumbent trikes and we stock both Terratrike and Catrike. We are a dealer for others as well.
There are a variety of options like regular bicycles from various wheel sizes, frame sizes, seating positions, rider weight, rider capability, gear options, folding, suspension, and budget.
Recumbent trikes are stable giving riders with balance issues, recovering muscles impacted by injury or disease, medical conditions like stoke or nerve damage the ability to ride again.
Trikes range in price from around $2200 to over $10000 for custom modifications.
Electric assist can be added in either hub or mid mount versions
Entry bars can be installed for the rider to easily enter or exit the trike
Braking and gearing can be adapted and moved to the dominant side of the rider
Accessories like flags, neck rests, fenders, pannier bags, rear racks, water bottle systems, etc can be added to customize the experience
Pedaling system can be adjusted to different tooth ranges, shorter crank lengths, different gearing ranges, and more
We work with the rider to give the best experience, advice, and knowledge to gain the ability to ride like never before.
We buy Trikes in US dollars. Therefore we need to account for Canadian Conversion rates + any import duties of 13% + freight + any additional adaptations!
We do our very best to pass on any possible savings if the Canadian dollar cooperates.
We do not price online since there are too many variables to account for and we rarely sell just a base model trike.
We offer Financing Plans, Layaway, we take Mastercard and Visa to make the recumbent buying experience an easy one.
