Since 2010, we have only sold what we have extensively ridden and tested.
All 4 recumbent European brands to test ride & buy in one very green & pleasant place:
ICE, HP Velotechnic, Hase and Azub recumbent trikes.
ICE trikes, based in Cornwall, England, have been used by our Outreach Service for over 12 years. In winter 2022 we reached 25,000 miles across Devon using ICE Adventure HD e trikes. Their unique selling point is their neat elastomer rear suspension which then allows a more compact fold when putting the heavier e trike versions in the car boot. This makes them our best selling trike.
We have Sprint, Adventure and Adventure HD models for test rides.
We also have the latest Shimano EP8 motor with automatic Enviolo gearing.
HP Velotechnic, based in Kriftel near FrankFurt in Germany, HP have been making recumbent trikes and bikes since 1993. We have been attracted to their Scorpion range with expedition ready high durability, formula one aspirations for their advanced suspension and super huge scope for customisation including colour. The Mercedes of the trike world!
We have a Scorpion FS26, Scorpion fS20 and Scorpion Plus to test ride at our Silverton workshop.
AZUB, based in the Czech Republic, have been making Recumbent trikes since 2010 and recumbent bikes since 2000.
Azub are well known for winning "trike of the year" awards for their innovation.
The T Tris, Tri Con and the Ti Fly trikes all offer folding frames and some spectacular engineering features that have to be tried and tested to fully appreciate. Many of our clients love their choice of colours, but most of all just want something ...different!
"A work of art that works".
We have the Ti-Fly 26 and Ti Tris 26 models to try here in Silverton.
Hase Bikes, based in Western Germany, have been world leaders in rehab cycling products since 1994. They make "Delta recumbent trikes" for adults and children which steer with one wheel at the front. In 2016 they have introduced a folding version of this Delta design which makes it both a joy to transport and ride. The higher seating position makes them a "rolling throne from which to patrol one`s domain"!
They also make a semi recumbent tandem called the Pino which is popular with couples looking to challenge Multiple Sclerosis.
We have Kettwiesel , Trigo, Lepus, 2022 Trets,
and Pino models for test rides.
Since 2010 we have supplied clients with their assembled trike/ tandem/ bike with all the necessary adaptations to give them the best chance to challenge their disability. This might include single hand steering and braking together with a variety of pedaling systems for those with high tone or paralysis. Consider us your personal "Q branch".
We also offer the best available motor assist equipment on ICE, HASE, Azub, HP Velotechnic trikes and Circe and Hase tandems.
We offer retrofit Bafang and Tonsheng mid drive motors.
