VTX Black Features


New easy access swept cruciform and new custom lightweight wheels

2019 VTX Black features our new easy access swept cruciform, creating improved heel clearance, making it easier to get on and off the trike. This frameset is lighter than the previous VTX frame.

All new black state of the art custom lightweight wheels are lighter than the previous VTX wheels. They are more aerodynamic and have a new modern profile. Tubeless compatible to save even more weight.

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 own No Brake Steer system ensures that the speed of each wheel and the tracking of the trike are completely independent, so steering 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.

LIGHTWEIGHT BY DESIGN

Carefully considered design and specialised components, such as a lightweight boom and carbon fibre seat, brings the VTX in at under 30lbs. Beautifully sculpted, the hydroforming process gives the rear frame optimal strength and stiffness while remaining lightweight.

ICE AIR-PRO SEAT

The ICE Air-Pro Carbon seats are handmade 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. 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 hardhsell 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 materials and two sizes to suit different riders and different budgets. 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.

GRP

The Glass reinforced plastic or GRP version of the Air Pro seat is the lower cost option which is fitted as standard on the Sprint X and VTX and is available as an upgrade on all Sprints. It is made from a mat of short strands of glass fibre which are held together by an epoxy resin. It is very tough and durable with a gloss black finish.

Carbon

The Carbon fibre version of the Air Pro seat is around .5kg lighter than the same size seat in GRP. It 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 lighter and stronger than the GRP version of the seat. But, that does come with an increased price tag. It has the classic carbon fibre checker board finish.
