Trice Ice Q with optional Hard Shell Seat

The Trice Q with optional hard-shell seat



Trice Q is a great all round trike from a world-leading manufacturer at a very affordable price! Now with rear suspension and folding as standard. Also available in a narrow track (NT) version called the QNT.


Has the design stood the test of time?

The Trice Q is a great sports trike from ICE. Its frame is based on the world renowned Trice XL, one of the most popular trikes in the ICE stable. The Trice Q has been designed from the ground up to give you unbeatable value for money in a machine with rear suspension and the ability to fold and separate without tools as standard.

What do I get?

Q stands for Quick and this trike delivers what its name promises. This machine handles with sure-footed confidence and is nothing short of exhilarating to ride. The tunable rear suspension is extremely comfortable on uneven pavement. This trike is practically guaranteed to put a smile on your face, a smile that is not easy to remove!


How Wide is the Trice Q?

The Trice Q is available in two track widths. Standard track is 31” (795 mm) wide, and narrow track is 27” (695 mm) wide. Standard track gives you loads of stability so you can really have some fun in the corners without worrying about shifting your weight. Narrow track sacrifices some of this stability to make it easier to get between bollards or through doorways.
Which ever width you choose, it will come painted in sparkling candy apple red. This machine is a real head turner.


Trice Q - Sport or recreation?

The Trice Q comes as standard with our ultra cool and comfortable mesh seat but if performance is what you crave you may like to spec your Trice Q with the optional hard shell seat. Turning your Q into an ultra fast trike, with the hard shell seat installed there is a massive 16 degrees of adjustment available for the seat angle (28-44˚). To maximize the aerodynamic advantage of recumbents you need to lie back. The hard shell seat allows you to do this more so than the mesh seat. If you want to go very fast you also need a solid platform for efficient power production and the hard shell seat does this best. The contoured shape is also enhanced by a unique set of lower body side supports made by ICE to improve cornering performance.


Can I ride the Trice Q off road?

If you wish to ride your Trice Q on unpaved trails you can. Trikes are confidence inspiring off road. If you start to get adventurous then the trike has the necessary clearances to fit a set of BMX knobby tires. We also offer a set of ‘off-road brackets’ which shifts the seat backwards towards the back wheel, increasing traction for those steep and slippery up hill stretches. Down hill the rear suspension and surefooted handling will give you the ride of your life.


How do I store or transport the Trice Q?
