The GT3 Folding
recumbent trike is the economical foldable commuting trike developed by
Greenspeed, the best-known name in tadpole trikes. As the 3rd
incarnation of the GT commuter trike it brings the Greenspeed reputation
to a new economical price never seen from them.
The GT3 is built from the ground up as a compact, economical and
foldable trike. It is more than a GTR frame with less expensive parts.
In order to cover the full range of trikes, from entry level through
elite Greenspeed wanted a trike at a price point much lower than their
other models. After pooling ideas from comments made by recreational and
commuting GTO and GTR owners they decided people wanted something that
was not just less expensive but that would fit through doors easier and
break down faster to fold into a small space.
They started with 16" wheels all round and a new folding mechanism that
is both quicker and less expensive than the S&S Coupling. Then they
developed a stud & elastomer mechanism for the rear of the seat that
only requires one bolt at the front of the seat. A simple change of the
Crank boom adjustment bolts to M8 and only one alley key is needed to
fit the trike into your car’s trunk you by removing the seat and folding
the frame. The same Allen wrench allows you to also remove the front
wheels and crank boom and adjust or fold the Handle Bars.

The GT3 Folding
Trike is a good trike for riders who want to fold it to carry in the
trunk of their car on the way to their favorite riding spot or in their
Camper for rides while on holiday. It is also good for riders with
limited space at home or at work. The GT3, GT-5 and GT-X are the easiest
Greenspeeds to fold.
They are one size fits most designs, the X large and X small rider may
have trouble fitting one well. Riders who weigh over 265 lb need a
heavy-duty trike and should look at GTO instead of the GT3.
