Recumbent tricycles have a unique design that makes riding more comfortable and fun. At Cycle Loft, one of our recumbent brands of choice is Catrike. Catrike makes top of the line award-winning recumbent trikes in several configurations. Each model is uniquely designed and manufactured in Orlando, Florida. There is a Catrike for every type of rider from the casual Villager to the speed ready 700, to the fully suspended Dumont.
Catrike tricycles come equipped with reinforced mesh seats to keep you cool and comfortable while riding. The drivetrain is powered by dual platform-SPD pedals that allow you to ride in any pair of shoes. Direct drive steering keeps you in full control of how your trike handles. All of these features allow you to reap the full benefits of the recumbent experience.
The unique geometry of recumbent tricycles gives you a riding position completely different than a traditional "double-diamond" bike frame. Instead of pressure being put on hand, wrists, and sit bones, the pressure is placed on your whole bottom. Also, when riding in a recumbent position, your back is reclined instead of hunched over. This gives you an all-around more comfortable ride.
Some Catrike models include rear suspension, or three points of suspension, and a rear 26" or 700c rear wheel. This relieves stress from road vibration and increases speed. Throw in a versatile drivetrain and you can take your Catrike wherever adventure takes you. From casual rides in the park to dusty gravel trails, Catrike has a tricycle for every rider.
