Recumbent Trikes

HP Velotechnik Gekko Trike Review

Gekko-FX

Pros: The HP Velotechnik Gekko FX is currently the fastest trike to fold on the market.  We are a big fan of the HP product, the quality is top drawer.  The handling of the trike is spot on, the seat is comfortable and the seat angle is slightly adjustable.  The Gekko FX is one of our favorite non suspended trikes.

Cons: HP did such a grate job with this trike.  We looked for some minor detail that we could knock them on and just could not find anything.  We love the trike just the way we received it.

Catrike 700 Trike Review

Catrike-700

Pros: This trike is really FAST.  Recently before my review I have a friend who let me drive his Lamborghini Gallardo on the race track. I drove it as fast around the corners that my skill set would let me and pedal to the metal on the straight a ways.  What an amazing experience, this is how I would sum up the the Catrike 700.  The Catrike 700 is made USA, and is very height quality, welding is perfect and the paint is amazingly deep.

Cons: The seat is low and the angle is way back, the seating position is designed for the few rather than the many.

Catrike Trail Trike Review

Catrike-Trail

Pros: The Catrike Trail now comes with a new frame design which allow the seat angle to be adjusted.   Catrike quality if workmanship has always been fantastic, welding if flawless and paint is extremely well dun.  We have always liked the sporty handling by Catrike.

Cons: We like Catrike and have always admired there design and workmanship.  The only problem we have seen with there product line is trikes that do not fold.  The good news is Catrike will have a folding version out some time in 2014.  If you are look for a soft ride keep looking.
