Sun Seeker Trikes

Sun Seeker Eco Tad SX.

NOTE: As of spring 2017 I will be bringing in Eco Tads via special order only. An Eco Tad is essentially a TerraTrike Rover knock-off, and  for a nominal increase you get a much better machine with TerraTrike. A Rover offers better steering, a superior Shimano drivetrain with 8 speeds, a higher weight capacity, Avid BB5 disc brakes, better fit and finish, Schwalbe tires, more accessory options, and safety oriented heel slings as standard equipment.

Decent quality, low price point, recumbent trikes with a 300lb capacity!

The Eco Tad SX is the newest edition to the Sun Seeker tadpole trike family. This is our most affordable tadpole trike, but just because its affordable doesn’t mean that it is not full of features. It has a fully adjustable mesh-back saddle with a padded bottom that keeps you cool and comfortable on long outings. There are spare bottle mounts on the seat frame and handlebars to let you carry plenty of hydration for the long hauls.
On a personal note the Eco Tad has excellent fit and finish, tidy welds and solid entry level components. Its very easy to get in and out of, the steering is sensitive without being twitchy, and the seat is quite comfy. Since the seat position, boom, and the handle bars are all adjustable the trike can be set up to accommodate all sizes of riders, and larger folks fit well without feeling cramped.
Its not the fastest or best handling trike on the market but the gearing is well thought out so it will get you up moderate hills and allow for decent cruising speeds. Also things like fenders and a HD rear rack are available for reasonable prices.  All in all I have to admit its a really nice trike - Rob
Addition: One component I don't feel that is up to par is the shifter, so I scrap the stock shifter in favor of a SRAM shifter.
