Carbontrikes – Stockholm, Sweden

Here is a trike that ranks right at the top for mind-blurring speed. Carbontrikes is one of three undisputed leaders in all-out speed capability. To learn more, visit the Trike Asylum page where this trike and its two competitors are studied side by side. There are also separate pages for each trike, under the MORE menu, then Aero Speed Trikes in the drop-down menu.

Another trike favored by some who ride really fast is the Windcheetah. It has a unique steering design, as shown in this video:

    As there are a few carbon fiber trikes out there now, and I have no doubt that soon they will be getting even faster, but I believe after seeing many stat reports on Wind Cheetah’s design, and capabilities, I believe it to be the fastest…! With no reservations what so ever I would say it’s carbon fiber framing is undoubtedly superior in construction to take the pounding of high speed racing and riding on today’s roads… I enjoyed this posted article as I always love to see new technologies and the capabilities of today’s trikes, and tomorrow’s dreams… Thanks for the post there Steve…!

    Also don’t forget WIndcheaters newest version the F.R.O. (For Race Only) and Greenspeed’s Aero & SLR – could be an interesting shoot out between the High Speed M
    achines if you could ever get them all in ONE race.
