Introducing The New Gran Tourismo

TerraTrike releases new touring trike, the 
Gran Tourismo, invites era of ‘trikepacking’

The GT is designed to go the distance – in comfort

TerraTrike, a pioneer in the recumbent tricycle industry, has released a new touring trike for the era of bikepacking. The Grand Tourismo (GT) is the result of 20 years of innovation, incorporating performance enhancements alongside TerraTrike’s signature ergonomics.

“The bikepacking bandwagon is really picking up speed and TerraTrike is rolling right alongside, offering something for the folks that want a bit more of a relaxed ride,” said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. “Sitting on an upright bike seat can be tough, especially for long distances, day in, day out. We’re not saying the new GT is going to convert the whole road bike choir, but they don’t know what they’re missing.”

With a new frame design, the GT affords exceptional vibration dampening, more heel clearance for easier pedaling and entry, and a triangulated rear end that improves efficiency with every pedal stroke.

Outfitted with either “x16” or “x20” component levels, the GT features direct steering, disc brakes, an adjustable boom and a reclining seat with an extended seat pan to improve the aerodynamic posture of the body while maintaining ergonomic comfort.

“Add some of our new custom fitted Storage Solutions bags to the GT and you will be just as happy taking it on a jaunt to the grocery store as commuting 20 miles or heading out on a Race Across America,” said Yonker.

Since its founding in 1996, TerraTrike has worked hard to establish a passionate community of riders, and nurture the laid-back lifestyle around recumbent triking.

“It’s about being comfortable and staying active,” said Yonker. “And based on our increasing sales numbers, people coming from miles around for RiderFest and participation in TrikeGroups.com, this is what more and more people want. I say let them have their cake and eat it, too.”

The GT has a base MSRP of $1999 (x16 model) and will be available through authorized TerraTrike dealers beginning September 15. More information can be found here.

BROL review of Gran Tourismo

From Bentrider Online:

"A quick scroll through our recent trike reviews will quickly tell you that TerraTrike has been releasing a lot of revised models over the last couple of years. They’ve also made a slew of minor and major improvements such as new seats, new steering geometry, new graphics and new accessories. I’d heard that all of these improvements would eventually be leading to a brand new model that would show of all of these upgrades all at once and introduce a few more. Now it’s here in the form of the all new TerraTrike Gran Tourismo."

RTR Review of the Gran Tourismo

From Recumbent and Tandem Rider Magazine:

"TerraTrike’s all-new Gran Tourismo is a typical TerraTrike o􀃗ering; typically well-designed, typically well made, typically attractive, and typically desirable. We had only a short window of opportunity with an early production rig before this issue went to the printer, but the window was large enough for us to be well impressed with what we saw and how it rode."

Pedal-Powered Rail Riding... on comfortable TerraTrike seats!

Looking for an unusual pedaling adventure? Try Rail Riding!
In 2014 an Oregon couple started a small rail touring business using sections of inactive rail lines in the NE part of Oregon. Many bike and trike riders are familiar with converted rail trails, where the rails have been removed and the rail path paved. The ‘Rail riding’ movement is unique because it makes use of existing rails for pedal-powered adventure, and provides a great way to experience some stunning scenery, wildlife and natural habitats!

Rail riders use small 4-wheeled pedal carts to ride the rails, sitting back in a comfortable position and pedaling down the rails. Tillamook Bay touring company in Oregon likens the experience to riding a “four person recumbent bicycle crossed with a rail car frame!”

Rail Riding is growing in interest across the country, and is offered in the Adirondack mountains by Revolution Rail Co. They describe rail riding as being similar to pedaling a paddle boat… but on wheels! Some of the rails that Revolution Rail uses follow the Hudson River and have never been open to passenger service before, so the views they provide are very unique! There are both 2 seater and 4 seater ‘bikes’ are available, and different length tour options. When you come to the end of the line, the vehicle is turned around on a railway turntable and you head back in the direction you came from.

Rail Riding is very similar to riding a TerraTrike, and we are pleased to see that many of the rail-riding tour companies are making use of the very comfortable TerraTrike seats! What a great tribute to what TerraTrike riders already know… riding in comfort is the way to go!

TerraTrike expects ’laid-back army’ at Recumbent Trike Festival

From Bicycle Retailer and Industry News:

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (BRAIN) — TerraTrike is bracing for its biggest edition of its annual RiderFest, which kicks off Saturday in South Grand Rapids.

"With more than 120 people already registered, and more expected on the day, we’re going to be a recumbent force to be reckoned with — like a very laid-back army," said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. It will be the fourth edition of the event.

Participants can ride either a 13-mile, flat out-and-back ride or a more challenging 20-mile ride. Prizes will be offered for best dressed, farthest traveled, youngest triker and other honors.

"I always love going up to Grand Rapids. It’s such a vibrant community of trikers," said Ben Jones, owner of Dogwood Junction Trike and Bike shop in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

TerraTrike has been manufacturing recumbent tricycles since 1996, when a couple of lifelong friends met up and sketched a recumbent trike on a cocktail napkin. The now-famous napkin sits framed at the entrance to TerraTrike headquarters.

"Having a framed napkin is kind of funny, but it shows how far we’ve come," Yonker said. "RiderFest is a great reminder, too."

TerraTrike Jolts Industry – Again – with New Electric-Assist Rambler E.V.O.

World’s first recumbent trike with a 5-phase motor, zero resistance pedaling

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — TerraTrike, the leading U.S. recumbent trike manufacturer, announced the release of the new Rambler E.V.O., a revolutionary electric-assist recumbent trike. Just as the TerraTrike Rover transformed the industry in 2010 and became the largest selling recumbent trike in the world, the E.V.O.’s functionality, ease of use and price is poised to set a new benchmark for all electric-assist trikes.

Based off the popular Rambler model, the E.V.O. (short for Electric Vehicle Option) uses a 750-watt, 5-phase motor – a first in the recumbent industry – made by Falco eMotors. Integrated into the rear wheel hub, the motor provides a seamless boost to pedaling through an embedded torque sensor. Falco design is light weight, whisper quiet, and gives extended range, high power, efficiency and torque.

“The beauty of this trike is that you simply turn it on and ride,” said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. “We’ve figured out the ideal torque setting and assist level so that it’s very predictable and optimized for assistance and range – up to 60 miles on a charge. However, if you want to tweak the setup, the additional accessories will let you unlock even more capabilities.”

Additional accessories – the console, throttle, and plus-minus switch – allow the rider to adjust assistance levels, put the motor into a regenerative mode to charge the battery during long descents, or activate the “crawl” function – also a first in the industry – which is intended to get the trike rolling from a stop and engage a reverse gear for backing up. An Android-compatible app is currently available to customize the motor setup from your smartphone. The iOS app will be released soon.

“We’ve been working on this for over two years with the Falco team,” said Yonker, “and we couldn’t be happier with the result. The E.V.O. represents the next step for recumbents – getting our customers out for longer rides, taking the overall triking experience to a new level.”

Offered in a bold electric yellow and black paint finish, the E.V.O. ($2999 MSRP) will be available through all authorized TerraTrike dealers in late July. More information can be found on the TerraTrike website at www.TerraTrike.com.

TerraTrike Releases New Adventure-Ready Bags, Expands Mobile Storage Options

Looking to the future of trikepacking and long-distance touring, seven new bags added to Storage Solutions Collection

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (June 16, 2017) — TerraTrike, makers of the world’s most comfortable recumbent trikes, announced the expansion of its popular Storage Solutions Collection with seven new bags. Building on the adventure capability of the popular TerraTrike line, there are now 14 unique bags in the TerraTrike Storage Solutions Collection.

“It’s not enough to just get around in comfort on a TerraTrike these days, customers are demanding adventure-ready gear – from a simple jaunt down to the store to a sojourn across the desert of New Mexico,” said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike.

Whether commuting, exercising or touring, the new additions to the Storage Solutions Collection protect gear from water, dirt, road grime and wind damage. Made with durable polyester and nylon, most of the new bags are custom-fitted to late model TerraTrikes. Many will also fit other recumbent trike brands.

“People are getting further and further off the beaten path and going on longer and longer rides with our trikes,” said Yonker. “The Storage Solutions Collection was built to make sure they can carry everything they need. We love seeing how far out customers go and, of course, hearing them rave about how capable trikes are.”

The new additions to the Storage Solution Collection will be available in stores June 22. Pre-orders can be made on TerraTrike’s website.

The seven additions to the Storage Solutions Collection include:

Versa Bag ($19.95 MSRP) – Designed to attach to the popular VersaBars accessory (sold separately), this compact bag is great for a cell phone, wallet, camera, keys or map. When used with the VersaBars, it is easily accessible while riding and the clear vinyl pocket is perfect for map viewing on the move. Easily attached and removed with two Velcro straps. Sold individually, they can be mounted on either or both sides of the trike.

Easy Reach Bag ($19.95 MSRP) – A simple, durable bag to carry the items most riders have in their pockets. Large enough to carry a phone, keys, wallet, camera or trail snack. Velcro straps allows it to be mounted just about anywhere. The two interior pockets are gusseted to keep objects in place when opened.

Deluxe Seat Bag ($44.95 MSRP) – A more refined version of our original seat bag, it features two clips and a bottom strap to securely mount it on the back of a rider’s seat. The full-width zipper allows easy access and the top flap opens so items won’t fall out. Plenty of space for a cell phone, wallet, keys, camera, tools, a pump and a small lunch.

Commuter Pannier ($89.95 MSRP) – Designed with an integrated rain-fly and plenty of pockets and space, this bag will safely and conveniently transport a tablet or small laptop, important papers or text books. Make it a mobile briefcase or simply extra storage for any adventure by removed the detachable tablet sleeve.

Expedition Pannier ($99.95 MSRP) – The largest bag in the Storage Solutions collection, it’s perfect for trikepacking or just carrying a lot of groceries. The two zippered extension pockets on the end expand the overall length of the bag and can easily fit a tent, short camping chair or folded fishing pole.

Stowaway Bag ($79.95 MSRP) – The Stowaway Bag is the most unique bag in the Storage Solutions family. This “U” shaped bag fits neatly behind the seat, wraps around the rear wheel where it helps lower the trike’s center of gravity. The zippered ends allow for easy access from either side, and the Velcro interior partitions allow customization of the space.

Low Rider Rack – Designed to sit behind and under the seat, it allows for attachment of low profile panniers, such as the Commuter Pannier or Expedition Pannier and is also the perfect mounting point for electric assist batteries, helping to keep the trike’s center of gravity low.

Requires the addition of the appropriate Low Rider Rack Fit Kit (sold separately, $12.95 MSRP). Available for Rambler, Rover and Sportster models.

The original Storage Solutions Collection includes: Adventure Pannier (two durable saddle bags), Shopping Bag (perfect for that Sunday grocery store run), Trunk Pack (a handy, durable bag that attaches to the top of a Rear Rack), Deluxe Trunk Pack (an expandable version of the Trunk pack with a custom mounting plate for quick detachment), Cargo Rack (sits above the rear wheel and allows for attachment of panniers and a trunk pack), Seat Bag (a compact bag for pocket items), and Bottle Pocket (a padded sleeve for a water bottle that easily attached with Velcro).

TerraTrike listed as top Fathers Day gift in Sierra Club magazine

In Sierra, the national magazine for the Sierra Clubs article "17 Ways to Get Dad Outside for Father’s Day", the TerraTrike Traveler was listed as one of the top gifts for Fathers Day.

"Has your father been really good this year? Might he benefit from an ergonomic, human-powered means of getting himself around? And not just around home base—the recumbent Traveler (about $2,100) from TerraTrike, designed for commuters and snow birds, folds down in less than a minute. In fact, it’s the only folding trike on the market that’s compactable into checked-baggage size. That means Dad can easily pack it into a plane, car, or camper, then recline and explore, anywhere he goes. Once he unfolds, it’s ready to ride."
