Greenspeed GT26




It is not much use having a really comfortable trike if it performs like a slug. A trike should be a joy to ride, and reward you for every pedal stroke. In fact not only should a recumbent trike be more comfortable than an upright bike, it should be more efficient and faster, due to better aerodynamics. This is where the GT26 shines. Unlike upright bikes, recumbent trikes are a mono tube design, and with every stroke of the pedals, the boom will flex down and the frame will flex up under the seat, wasting some of your effort. To overcome this the GT26 uses a rectangular main tube and crank extension. Thus the main tube is BOTH stiffer and lighter than the oversize round main tube used on the Magnum! To reduce the weight further, the GT26 uses the special lightweight Aero hubs, and new kingpins which are ½ the weight of the kingpins used on the Magnum.

Any amount of tread on a bicycle tire will slow you down on the road, so while the Kojaks chosen for the GT26 may not roll quite as easily as our Scorchers, they lighter and thinner, giving less air drag. They are the next most popular tire for the Australian Pedal Prix racing. Finally the 26” rear wheel gives you speed without the need for special gearing systems.
