UPDATE (April 2019) This year we have noticed big changes in buying patterns. E-trikes are now starting to be a significant part of our requests for quotes and deliveries. All recent E-trike models (2015 onwards) have used the Shimano Steps system - often tied in with Di2 Alfine 8 hub gearing. Our first Steps sale was back in 2015 and this was a fantastic full suspension Hase Kettwiesel. Since then we’ve done a few ICE E-trikes as well. (Links to our Flckr photo library)

The trikes featured above are the ones we’ve sold most of over the years. Others are available of course and the intention here is to give you a quick comparison of the most important points of each model. The factor that will count most is how you fit to a particular trike. If you haven’t tried a trike then be prepared to have your pre-conceptions challenged. Trikes offer all year round cycling. Some people think that triking is just for people with an excuse (ie balance or injury issues). The modern folding recumbent trike re-defines human power and is a distinct branch of cycling in its own right. Like two wheelers trikes are fun. Take a test ride and enjoy ‘scrubbing’ round corners and staying low out of the wind. Safety-wise trikes are as visible as any other low vehicle on a road - maybe more so. Laid Back customers use trikes for touring and commuting. Fairings can be added to give weather protection and performance enhance.
Velomobiles are of course the next stage on from a faired trike, but be prepared to wait whilst your machine is being made. Not a cheap option (£4k+) but does offer you another level of comfort and performance. Expect to test ride a trike first though as demo machines are thin on the ground.

A good source of reviews and info on what we sell is found here at the new
Recumbentcyclist and at Dave McCraw’s web sites. For actual details of whether a particular trike will suit you then email Laid Back. We also have pdf sheets we can send out in addition to the links to manufacturer web sites.
