Triot’s unique full-suspension trike design first appeared at Recumbent Cycle-Con a few years ago. It was an immediate eye-catcher for everyone in attendance. The extruded aluminum frame, enclosed drivetrain and suspension design were like nothing we’d ever seen in the trike industry.
However, even though we continued to see Triot at shows year upon year, we weren’t seeing many actually on the road. That’s all changed in the last year. The Salt Lake City-based company is now in full production swing and not only offer that original version that we’ve seen for awhile now, there are now several drivetrain options and an electric assist version. I was lucky enough to go out to Utah and try both versions.
MSRP – Starting at $4495 unassisted ad $7995 with e-assist
Highs – Very well made, Design features you won’t see elsewhere, Great price
Lows – Linked brakes, A bit heavy
