Absolutely not, the learning curve is really easy. They are very stable, simple to steer, and the brakes are safe and strong. Since you don't have to balance it frees up your attention to operate the controls and enjoy the ride!
Standard Trident accessories include (except Spike, E Spike, Titan and E Titan) three fenders, an aluminum rear rack, a rear light, an accessory mount (ie front light), a Mirrycle mirror, parking brakes, water bottle cage, and a safety flag.
Other brands have a full range of accessories available.
It depends. Trident doesn't charge an extra premium for their folding trikes. AZUB is more expensive, but their hinge is a machinists 'work of art'. HP Velo is more, but they have one of the slickest folds on the market. ICE only offers folding models. TerraTrike charges more.
No. I have several customers up to 275 lbs and I have experienced zero failures. Folding trike limits: A TerraTrike Traveler will handle up to 300 lbs. AZUB trikes are rated for 275 lbs, ICE Adventure HD 330 lbs, and HP Velo are 286 lbs.
Trident is the 'Hyundai' of the recumbent trike world. They're robust, comfortable, handle well, and are well engineered with solid components. The fact that they fold, come with decent accys all for a value price, is just icing on the cake. See my Trident page for more information.
If Trident is the Hyundai of the recumbent world then AZUB would be the 'Audi' of the recumbent world. They're for the discerning customer that simply wants a highly engineered hand-crafted product, wants to tour, wants a customized drivetrain, or wants advanced suspension.
A Gekko 26 is a sporty choice for the taller heavier rider or for those that don’t need a folding trike
Great over all mid-range trikes!
ICE is one of the upper echelon trike brands. Simply put they make a top notch product that is well thought out in every aspect. Using my automotive references (since they are built in the UK), they would be analogous to a Jaguar... without the electrical problems lol.
Yes, anywhere in Canada. Most of the time they are fully assembled or require minor assembly. Depending on the brand and the situation, sometimes trikes can be shipped un-assembled.
It comes down to currency exchange volatility and shipping fluctuations. If I have a specific model on clearance than you will see a price listed.
Absolutely, this is the crux of my business model.
There is nothing nothing wrong with Google reviews, its just that my personal preference is to have a Testimonial page. Please see my Testimonial page for customer reviews :)
Sorry no I don't. I simply don't have the space, time, or the necessary insurance for rentals.
Obvious engineering differences aside, compared to the regular bike companies like Giant, Trek, Norco etc that produce massive quantities of bicycles, specialized recumbent manufacturers are quite small, and simply don't enjoy the same economy of scale. Comparatively low volume recumbent manufacturers have to operate at higher margins to remain viable.
