Explorer-a recumbent trike


The "Explorer" is a tadpole style recumbent trike with "king pin" steering and rear suspension. It is stable, has a high ground clearance and its ergonomic seat is set at a height which makes it as easy to get into and out of as a comfortable chair.

The "Explorer" can be fitted with a variety of racks enabling it to be used for everything from shopping to quiet leisure rides to substantial tours. The relaxed seating position is adjustable for leg length and the frame will accommodate riders between 165cm and 205cm.
