2014 Catrike 700

Few speed trikes have the outstanding reputation and solid following of loyal riders as have evolved with the legendary Catrike 700. Over the years since its inception, the 700 has undergone numerous modifications and improvements, all designed by the factory to give the rider that ultimate adrenaline rush that comes with this total performance package. A wicked fast speed machine, the 700’s aerodynamic seating position, fast rolling 700c wheel, and high gears place it on the leading edge. Click HERE to visit the Catrike 700 webpage.

SPEED FREAK, WITHOUT APOLOGIES

With the Catrike 700’s 52-tooth large front chainring, this may well be the fastest human powered recumbent tadpole trike available. Educated conjecture? Sure, but until head-to-head speed tests are conducted with the top speed trikes on this planet, that is all we can do. Suffice it to say that if you want a trike that will take a back seat to none, this may well be your machine of choice!
