The Greenspeed Anura is designed to be easy to ride. Rather than having a low seat like most tadpole trikes (2 wheels front, and 1 rear), and some deltas (1 wheel front, and two rear) the Anura seat is set at the same height as a kitchen chair, at 17 to 18” above the ground, plus there is no cross member or front axle in front of the seat, so mounting and dismounting is much easier. The higher seat also gives more confidence in traffic, yet having the seat closer to the paired wheels than the single wheel gives more stability than expected. Unlike other delta trikes the Anura has a differential as standard equipment, which gives balanced two wheel drive. And with 75% of the weight on the driving wheels V 33% for a tadpole trike, the Anura has far superior traction on loose or slippery surfaces, like gravel, mud, or snow. The three wheel disc brakes provide more powerful braking than most trikes, and steering is light, positive, and accurate with a small turning circle. To reduce weight the Anura frame is made from 7005 aluminium alloy, and the rectangular main tube allows the length of the frame to be varied by 10 inches to suit the leg length of rider, while keeping the front frame in perfect alignment. 16” wheels are standard on the Anura because they result in a lighter and more compact trike, than could be built with 20” wheels. Furthermore with the special Scorcher tyres they roll easier and give a better ride than most 20” wheels! However for a still higher seat and more ground clearance, 20” rear wheels are now available, and later in 2013 there will be a 20” front wheel option.

Many people have said that it is not possible to build a trike which is suitable for road as well as off road. Others have said, you must have suspension to give a smooth ride. However, this increases the weight, adds complication, and cost. Well, the Greenspeed Magnum breaks the mould in trike design! No longer is it necessary to agonize between the choice of a high seat trike for off road, or a low seat trike for on road, suspension or non-suspension, disc brakes or drum brakes, or a heavy, low performance trike to take your weight. The Magnum is the 1st recumbent trike to have a seat which is adjustable for height. Plus it is adjustable for angle as well. The seat height is adjustable from 12” to 17” and both adjustments are with Quick Release levers. Thus the rider can choose the seat height to suit ease of entry and exit, the riding conditions, and personal preference – low for speed and high for visibility in traffic. Some riders may find they need the seat high at first to help get them on and off the trike. Later as they become fitter and loose weight, they might find they can lower the seat and take advantage of the lower centre of gravity. This gives better cornering and road holding. Wind tunnel tests show that the lower seat is also 2 mph faster at 25 mph.
The Hand Magnum draws on over twenty years of development at Greenspeed, plus has a host of new features over previous Greenspeed Hand Cycles. Right from the start we realized that unlike most bike riders, hand cycles riders were not normally able to get off their machines and push if the hills were too steep, so we added extra gearing systems which enables riders to climb mountains when they felt they needed the challenge. The Hand Magnum continues this theme by using three gearing systems. A nine speed derailleur system, a three speed rear hub, and two speed crank system. This gives a gear range of 946% or from 12 inches to 110 inches, plus the hub gears and the crank gears can be changed both while in motion and when stationary.
A world first: HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs 26 – The first full-suspension, foldable touring trike with a large 26-inch rear wheel ******** (Summary) *********** Friedrichshafen. Trike riding is becoming even more efficient and comfortable. On stand FW-300 at the Eurobike trade show, recumbent manufacturer HP Velotechnik will be the world’s first manufacturer to exhibit a full-suspension foldable touring trike with a large 26-inch rear wheel. Compared to the smaller 20-inch wheels conventionally found on recumbent trikes, the larger wheel on the suspended rear of the new Scorpion fs 26 model provides an even smoother ride, less rolling resistance, and easier obstacle traversing. The combination of full suspension with tried-and-tested chassis technology from the automotive engineering sector and the positive running properties of larger wheels sets new standards in riding dynamics. Thanks to HP Velotechnik’s sophisticated self-locking folding hinge, the vehicle can be quickly folded into an easy-to-transport package with dimensions of just 123 x 83 x 69 cm. The new Advanced Steering Geometry (ASG) enables riders to control the Scorpion fs 26 smoothly and precisely, giving it a small turning circle of just 5.5 meters (18 feet) despite its long wheelbase. From November 2012, all HP Velotechnik trike models will come with ASG as standard. In addition to the ergonomically-shaped ‘BodyLink’ hard shell seat, HP Velotechnik also offers the option of the further improved ‘ErgoMesh’ seat. This not only provides optimum ventilation for the back but also offers more side support thanks to the enhanced seat design with strengthened, anatomically-shaped side cushioning. For larger riders, the seat is will be available in a 5 cm (2 inch) wider ‘ErgoMesh XL’ version with a 3 cm (1 1/8 inch) longer back rest and seat pan. The Scorpion fs 26 touring trike is available from specialist dealers in the US and abroad from early 2013 with a starting price of € 3,790 / US$ 4,355.
