AZUB, for the discerning customer. Hand crafted in the Czech Republic, AZUB simply produce some of the finest trikes in the world!
AZUB is a relatively small company in the Czech Republic where their trikes (and recumbent bikes) are hand crafted to a touring spec. In other words, they're built for the long haul. In my opinion compared to other high-end brands, AZUB represents not only superior engineering but better value. Yes they are more expensive than average, but when you take a close look at the level of detail, machining, and execution, it becomes readily apparent where the value and quality lies.
Because of the Canadian European Trade Agreement (CETA) there is NO 13% import Duty on AZUB Trikes. This means there are substantial savings.
AZUB's usually in stock: Ti -Fly 26, TRIcon 20 or 26, T-Tris 20 & 26, Electric Ti - Fly X / Shimano STEPS
All AZUB trikes are available in a variety of colors and a large selection of drivetrain configurations... the models I've chosen to keep in stock are configured with solid components relative to the intended purpose and price point vs comparable models from other manufacturers.
The AZUB website contains a wealth of information so I'm not going to attempt to duplicate it here, please see their website for all the latest information. But I encourage you to have a good look at the supplied videos and content here.

At the 'global level' Funwest Sports achieved the ultimate recognition from AZUB for 2023!
It's not solely based on sales volume, a Top 10 dealer must convey an ongoing commitment to outstanding customer relations and professional brand representation.
For an unprecedented second year in a row, AZUB took top honors again. After five years in development the full suspension Ti-Fly won Trike Of The Year in 2017 and they haven't looked back!
AZUB took all the technical features from the rear suspension TRIcon, and complimented it with unique industry leading titanium front suspension, which makes the Ti-Fly the most advanced trike in the world. The Ti-Fly utilizes grade 5 aerospace titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) transverse mounted front leaf springs, which is about half the weight of similar solutions fabricated from steel. The front suspension offers 40mm of dampened travel with a progressive end and soft stop, which translates into a very stable and comfortable ride.
There are a multitude of options available, please see the AZUB configurator or contact me. Some of the highlights are: Pinion Drives, Rohloff hubs, Shimano STEPS EP6 / EP801 series e-assist.
What is it like to ride a Ti-Fly? Personally speaking, superb responsive handling combined with a very comfortable ride, would be one way of putting it. Another way of putting it... after you ride one, it's really hard to go back to a non-suspended trike. It's that good - especially with a Dream Seat!
But it all comes down to where you ride, the terrain, and of course... budget.
Truly the ultimate dual purpose, or off the beaten path full suspension recumbent trike. All the aforementioned features of a Ti-FLY, but with easy rolling 26'' wheels all-around. Optional tires, optional drive trains are available including Rohloff hubs, and Shimano STEPS EP6 / EP801 series e-assist.

The Ti FLY X wins Trike Of The Year for 2018. Read all about it here
My take: As cushy and responsive as a Ti-Fly 26, but the 26" front tires are definitely noticeable regarding handling. A Ti-Fly 20 or 26 handles like a sports car, whereas the 'X' handles more like a SUV. This is simply the trade off for more ground clearance and vastly improved off road / dual purpose capabilities. If you spend over 50% of your time off the beaten path then IMO a 'X' is worth considering. Whereas if you spend most of your time on bike paths then a regular Ti-Fly would be the better choice.
All the same features / options as a Ti -Fly X but without front suspension.
GR stands for gravel road, and the 26" tires roll very well over rough terrain. Ride quality can be improved by installing tires with a larger cross section. IE VEE Speedster 2.8" which offer respectable passive suspension.
A GR is a great dual purpose alternative to a Ti - Fly X at a lower price point.
*Almost identical to a Ti-Fly but without front suspension.
Back in 2015 the AZUB TRIcon won Trike Of the Year as voted by the readers of BentRider Online. This prestigious award was presented due to the TRIcon's superior craftsmanship and industry leading technology. Features such as a 157mm wide hub with a Syntace rear axle, and a T 7075 aluminum hinge with a Teflon hard face anodized coating sets the TRIcon in a class by itself. TRIcon overview
* The bottom bracket (pedal) height is approximately 1" lower than a Ti-Fly.
Read about what Bryan Ball from Bent Rider has to say about it:
"This is Azub’s top of the line three wheeler and it has blown people away with it’s easy fold, super stiff chassis and superb handling. I’ve heard at least three recumbent dealers and/or dealer employees call it “the best handing trike I’ve ever ridden.”" Bryan Ball, bentrideronline.com
The T-Tris 26 is the fastest and the most affordable trike AZUB offers. It too has a stiff frame with minimum flex while riding, and accurate steering. The T-Tris 26 shares the same geometry and other important technical solutions with its siblings, like the AZUB Ti-FLY or TRIcon. Even the rear part of the frame is designed and made so as to make the rider feel confident in steering through even the sharpest bends. The 26” rear wheel gives a slightly better feeling of comfort. For the more sport-minded cyclists, the fact that the trike is faster on flats may also play a role.
I stock both 20" & 26" T-Tris models which are solid performers, its an unsuspended trike comparable to a Catrike Expedition but with a higher seat. Except the T-Tris has lower gearing for hills, more seat adjustability (Ideal Positioning System), indirect steering, and it also folds for transport or storage. Adding a Dream Seat and Schwalbe Big Apple tires smooth out the ride if desired.
To make sure this trike would be perfect for you AZUB has worked hard on the component offerings. The basic equipment includes red anodized rims with two rows of holes made in Italy, excellent hubs with industrial bearings and four inch Schwalbe Jumbo Jim tyres. However, you can also go for such delicacies as the FAT version of the popular 14-speed Rohloff gearbox or the 18-speed Pinion P1.18, which provide the much needed very “slow” gears, so suitable for the FAT trikes. With these gears you will be able to manage even some very steep climbs. The whole range is then supplemented by many accessories, such as the ultra-durable rack by the famous German brand Tubus, built specifically for bikes of the FAT type.
My take: Fat trikes are not just for snow, sand, and off-roading. If you live in a rural area where there are a lot of gravel roads, then by default a fat trike is easily the go-to solution. Fat tires simply roll over 3/4" gravel, whereas a regular trike will shake your fillings out!
An AZUB Fat is a cut above the entry level fat trikes largely due to superior ergonomics... the seating position, the bottom bracket (pedal) height,and the indirect steering all contribute to better riding dynamics. There are multiple drive train options so you can customize to your liking and budget.
I can add electric to any AZUB trike, or there are factory options such as Shimano EP6 and EP801 mid drives. Please see my electric page for more details.
AZUB trikes can be ordered without a hinge in what's referred to as a 'separable' configuration. The frame simply unbolts for transport or storage, this saves about $480.00 on the cost of a trike but it's not as convenient.
Using the extreme fold method, both the TRIcon and Ti-Fly will fit in the trunk of a compact car. Click here
All AZUB trikes have IPS (Ideal Positioning System) for their seats... which means you have millimeter precision for not only the angle but fore and aft position on the frame.
The T-Trisek is based on the successful AZUB T-Tris 20 model, which AZUB has been producing since 2010, and which they have further modified to suit even small riders. The AZUB T-Trisek is therefore intended for riders with a height of at least 135 cm, i.e. 4 feet 3, or even a little less. The maximum size of the rider is then almost unlimited. With the long front boom, it is roughly 180 cm, i.e. 5 feet 11.
So here it is. A trike that fits riders from 135 cm, i.e. 4 feet 3, till 180 cm, i.e. 5 feet 11 or even more if needed. What does it mean? If you are a short adult, you can comfortably sit on this trike and feel as if it was built only and exclusively for you. If you are a parent of a child who needs a trike for whatever reason but will grow in the future, and perhaps by a lot, you can be sure that in a few years, you will not have to buy a new tricycle, but the trike will grow with your kid. And this is excellent news. Unlike most other manufacturers small person trikes, a T-Trisek is fully optionable just like it's big brothers!
