Enjoy Cycling in Comfort with our Suspension Tricycle

Our suspension tricycle is capable of withstanding off-road abuse with its independent three wheel suspension and welded chrome-moly frame. The recumbent tricycle incorporates under seat steering with linkages to the wheels for added comfort and to minimize any impacts to the riders hands and arms during aggressive all terrain cycling. The Berserker is the ultimate local transportation solution, great for commuting to work, or running local errands. Our Heavy Duty rack allows you to easily attach grocery carrying Pannier bags, and your briefcase.
