Catrike Road 08

Catrike began with the Road as the performance trike bike in the Catrike line-up. It is still their middle of the road, suits a lot of riders versatile trike. Not a race horse, the Road Catrike Road has less recline than the speed or 700 for the less radical rider. At 33 lb it’s weighs the same as the Catrike Expedition. It is a smaller trike than the Expedition or 700 so it retains the portability advantage over these two newer Catrike designs. It is a few hundred less expensive too. The Road began life as the lightest trike in its price range, it still is (if you don’t count other Catrikes) The road comes in between the Catrike Trail ($400 cheaper, lower quality components 1” more ground clearance) and the Speed (3 lb lighter, less ground clearance, faster, $200 more.)

The component group on the Road is nice, I particularly like the Shimano Dura Ace Bar end shifters a lot better than grip shift twist shifters on any USS recumbent bike or trike.

So, what’s not to like? It’s not a speed machine or the economy Catrike but it will suit a lot of riders well.

A Premium multi-purpose Catrike. It is great for the trail, commuting or touring the World.
