Most of our trikes are available as fully rigid versions with no suspension. Fully rigid trikes are light, have good power transfer and are less complex making them a great choice for those looking for speed and those who live near to smooth trails and roads. Rigid trikes are also less costly than equivalent suspension trikes so they make a good choice for more budget minded riders. The Sprint X have a 700c rigid version and the Adventure and Adventure HD have both 20” and 26” rigid versions available. Rigid trikes can be fitted with large “balloon” tyres such as Schwalbe’s Big Apple to help smooth out the ride.
The 20" rear suspension is available on the Adventure and Adventure HD. The Road Response Rear Suspension system is a highly tuneable, simple and robust, single pivot suspension system which gives up to 100mm of rear suspension travel. Elastomer selection is based on rider weight and luggage load, the chart below lists all of the elastomer positions for different riders. Tuning your rear suspension is simple and quick, only requiring you to swap or move the elastomers to different positions, to get the best results from your rear suspension.
The 26” rear suspension is available on the Adventure, Adventure HD and Sprint X Tour. It works in exactly the same way as the 20” rear suspension but it has a longer swingarm to fit the larger wheel, as a result it has a little more travel and requires two elastomers to give it the required support. The elastomers required for each rider’s weight are listed in the elastomer selection chart, with two elastomers you have even more options for the positions which will allow you to set up the suspension exactly as you want it.
All Full Fats come with rear suspension as standard.
Available on the Adventure, Adventure HD, Sprint X Tour and Sprint X. The ICE Road Response front suspension gives 40mm of elastomer controlled, independent front suspension. It features a four bar leading link suspension set up with anti-dive geometry which eliminates brake dive and bump steer.
