ICE VTX - THE ULTIMATE RACING RECUMBENT TRIKE

FAST-LIGHT-SLEEK-DARK-INTELLIGENT

A perfect blend of performance, dynamic handling and comfort coupled with stunning looks and detailing to create the ultimate trike. With the lowest seating position of all our trikes, the VTX delivers superior performance guaranteed to put a smile on your face. A dynamic matt black colour scheme and custom graphics make the VTX look as good as it rides.

The VTX is the trike you need if you like to go fast. Sleek, lean, and finely tuned, the ICE VTX delivers superior performance for the most exacting rider. Super-charged with technical expertise and specialist knowledge, the ICE VTX is a different breed of recumbent trike. 

The VTX now holds 12 World Records for fastest trike in the WUCA trike cycling classes. Jochem Leemans from the Netherlands set a blistering average speed of 25.72mph for 100km. That’s very fast! Caleb from Las Vegas recently set 10 road cycling world records on his ICE VTX. And hot off the press the VTX is still the fastest trike in its class, winning the prestigious 2022 world human-powered vehicle association championships (WHPVA) in the men's and women's unfaired trike category in Orgelet France. 

This demonstrates the winning pedigree of our world class flagship VTX performance trike, and is also underpinned by our whole range of trike models. Every stage; from trike design, specification of components, the build and assembly, with rigorous attention to detail, gives you the peace of mind you'll be riding the best performing range of trikes in the world. All backed up with our 10-year warranty and enviable reputation.

12 WORLD RECORDS FOR THE ICE VTX

We all know the ICE VTX is the trike you ride if you want to go fast. When it’s being ridden by someone like Caleb Cline or Jochem Leemans, truly great things can happen.

Caleb from Las Vegas set 10 new WUCA world records in a 24hr road cycling event, in April 2022. Caleb cycled 322.91 miles (519.68km) in a 24hr period on Nevada's public roads. With an overall average speed of 13.45 miles per hour over the total 24 hour period.

Jochem from the Netherlands achieved two new world records on the ICE VTX for fastest trike rider over 100 miles in 3hrs 54 minutes and 100 km in 2hrs 24 minutes, July 2021. This demonstrates the world-class racing credentials of the VTX.

VTX Features


Natural Handling one piece design handlebar

NATURAL HANDLING

An optimised cruciform and one piece handlebar provide stability and nimble handling no matter what the speed.

Fitted with indirect steering for natural, intuitive handling from the first ride. As pace increases handling remains controlled, predictable and light, even when taking tight corners. The steering system dissipates vibrations and shock before they reach your hands to give a comfortable and safe feel, even at high speed.

ICE’s no brake steer geometry keeps braking forces independent of steering control, so the steering of the trike is not affected by braking at speed, uneven braking or cornering.

AERODYNAMIC PROFILE

A low seat position and recline angle as little as 25° minimises frontal area and reduces aerodynamic drag.

Aerodynamic Race Profile

LIGHTWEIGHT BY DESIGN

Carefully considered design and specialised components, such as a lightweight boom and carbon fibre seat, brings the VTX in at just over 30lbs.

Beautifully sculpted, the hydroforming process gives the rear frame optimal strength and stiffness while remaining lightweight.

DURABLE ELEGANT OPTIMISED FRAMES

Our frames are designed to respond to the forces of the rider and road. Every element of the VTX frame has been engineered to complement the other, giving ICE trikes their famed riding characteristics.

Each frame is made from the finest aircraft-grade heat-treated 4130 Chromoly steel and 7005 T6 heat-treated aluminium. Chromoly steel is used in the centre frame cruciform section for the perfect combination of strength, fatigue resistance and vibration absorption. Aluminium is used in the rear hydroformed frame and front boom because it is strong, lightweight and absorbs dynamic forces while ensuring maximum power transfer.
 
All frames are powder-coated for a beautiful durable showroom finish, whilst other components are anodised for durability.

700C CUSTOM RACE WHEEL SET

The VTX and the Sprint X share the same race wheel set. The black state of the art, custom lightweight race wheels are lighter than the previous wheels. They are more aerodynamic in having a modern aero section profile.

They feature a 700c rear wheel and are tubeless ready as standard to save even more weight. Available in; reliable low maintenance drum or powerful lightweight disc brake options.

ICE AIR-PRO SEAT

The VTX is fitted with the ICE Air-Pro carbon fibre seat as standard. The seats are handmade from carbon fibre in-house by our master craftsmen and provide exceptional stiffness with minimal weight, weighing in at 1.1kg.

The Air-Pro shell is an anatomically contoured shape which is available in two sizes (medium & large). The shell supports the rider through aggressive cornering and provides a firm brace to pedal against while flexing where appropriate for comfort. Our Rider Positioning System allows you to tailor the trike to you. The shell has incorporated wings unlike most of its competitors, which reduces weight and increases efficiency.

Fitted to the shell is a custom composite fabric cover made from carefully selected foams and surface materials for ultimate performance. The technical pad system is arranged to provide maximum comfort and support while riding, incorporating natural ventilation channels to maintain a cooling airflow across the back. Recognising that the shape and riding style of every rider is undoubtedly different we also designed a personal padding system that is provided separately, these pads allow the rider to place extra pads directly to the shell and under the cover for added support in areas they deem necessary.

Construction

Our Air-Pro seat is handmade in house to the highest quality control standards by our master craftsmen. It is a lightweight form fitting seat which is stiff and strong, providing excellent power transfer and making sure everything you put into the pedals makes it to the road. It is available in two sizes to suit different riders. It is finished with a dual density foam core fabric cover, tuned for maximum comfort while, keeping the weight low and the feel of the seat sporty.

Carbon

The Air Pro seat is made from Carbon fibre. The seat is made from layers of carbon fibre woven sheet, with the fibres orientated for maximum strength in specific areas of the seat. The fibres are bonded together with epoxy resin making it light and strong. It has the classic carbon fibre checker board carbon fibre finish.

ICE VTX Easy Access Swept Cruciform

Easy access swept design cruciform

The VTX features our easy access swept cruciform, creating improved heel clearance while pedalling and making it easier to get on and off the trike.
