Catrike - 700 2014|
An all-out speed trike, the 700's aerodynamic seat position, fast rolling 700c rear wheel, 20" front wheels and high gears give it top performance. It is arguably one of the fastest recumbent trikes in the world. The improved smoothness and ride quality are noticeable, and the large rear wheel makes the drive train ratios work as they should - no fancy hubs required to get respectable high and low gear ranges. The 406mm front wheels, combined with Ackerman Compensation, provide solid cornering performance. The ergo seat features lumbar support and “returns” your shoulders to a more upright position for improved neck comfort. The indexed boom and clamp system adjusts easily, stays put and improves efficiency. Rear fender not included on the 700 - it is optional.

Important – Adjustable Boom Warning
When adjusting the boom, the chain length needs to be adjusted accordingly. Riding with improper chain length can cause damage to both the rear derailluer and frame. Always make sure there is enough chain for the big chainring/big cassette cog gear combination. We recommend the following tools to adjust chain length: Park Mini Chain Brute Chain Tool (#59828) and Park Master Link Pliers (#30788).
