Outside Magazine review of Rambler AT

Outside Magazine writer Jen Judge rode a Rambler AT several hundred miles #trikepacking the backroads of New Mexico.

"Then one day, in a moment of frustration, I started looking for recumbent, three-wheeled bikes that could handle dirt. For “serious” cyclists, a recumbent, or trike, is about as appealing as training wheels. I’d never considered riding one, but soon found the Terra Trike Rambler All-Terrain, a brand-new design that landed on my doorstep a few weeks later. And though I hadn’t ridden it yet, and though I’d been couch-bound, and though I had only a week until I left for a photography assignment in Jordan, I concocted a trikepacking tour of the backroads of New Mexico. Four days, three nights, and several hundred miles later, I was sold."

Purple Heart vets to ride TerraTrikes during Washington DC Memorial Day Parade

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At this year’s Memorial Day Parade two Purple Heart veterans will help lead the Purple Heart Foundation float on a novel form of transport – a recumbent tricycle.

The inclusion of a recumbent trike marks the beginning of a new partnership between TerraTrike, the largest producer of recumbent tricycles and tricycle accessories in North America, and the Purple Heart Foundation, the original organization to support combat-wounded veterans.

“It’s a great honor for TerraTrike to be a part the Memorial Day Parade this year,” said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. “We’re proud to be working with this outstanding veterans organization.”

The new partnership includes the donation of two TerraTrike Ramblers and all proceeds from the sale of custom-made Purple Heart flag extensions, which will be available online and select TerraTrikes dealers nationwide. Additionally, for every trike purchase between May 25–31, 2017, TerraTrike will offer a free military flag extension from any branch of the U.S. military, or a Purple Heart Foundation flag.

As ongoing support for US service members, beginning May 25 all active military personnel or veterans with valid military ID will be eligible for a 10 percent discount on all new TerraTrikes.

“We’ve got a lot of vets who are fans of TerraTrike and we are always happy to hear how much a trike can mean to their recovery and general health,” said Yonker. “There are a lot of initiatives out there for vets to get active and this is our contribution to making that a little easier for them.”

The National Memorial Day Parade, organized by the American Veterans Center, will begin in front of the Smithsonian Museum of American History and follow Constitution Avenue past the Washington Monument, ending in front of the Lincoln Memorial gardens.

The two Purple Heart veterans riding the TerraTrikes, Michael Carrasquillo and Sebastian Ploszaj, will join the Purple Heart Foundation float for the entire parade.

TerraTrike introduces the new Rambler All Terrain


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. TerraTrike, the largest producer of recumbent trikes in the U.S., has unveiled a new model in its highly successful Rambler line of recumbent trikes. The Rambler All Terrain (AT) has been purpose built to accommodate riders that want to get off the beaten path.


We took our Rambler with the 24-inch All Road tires and evolved it to a whole new level, said Jeff Yonker, marketing director at TerraTrike. The AT will allow riders to keep going when the pavement ends, without compromising speed, comfort or price. The Rambler AT is equipped with 24 Schwalbe Smart Sam tires which provide plenty of clearance and traction, the x20 component level mountain drive train featuring a 22-36T double chainring crankset, an 11-40T cassette and Avid BB7 brakes for added stopping power. It also features the new fixed seat design which keeps the rider firmly positioned and makes the trike more rigid and stable overall. New oversized studded alloy pedals give plenty of grip for climbing or descending steep hills. The new sparkle green paint job and orange embroidered TerraTrike logo on the seat will be sure to turn heads both on and off the trail.


The best thing about this trike is how versatile it is, said Mike Kessenich, CEO of TerraTrike. On pavement, you can pump up the pressure in the tires and cruise the bike path. But off road is where it shines. Just let a little air out of the tires to create a passive suspension system without the added cost, complexity and weight of traditional shock absorbers. On or off road, this trike rocks! The Rambler AT ($2,399 MSRP) is available at any authorized TerraTrike dealer.

About TerraTrike TerraTrike (WizWheelz, Inc.) is headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan and is the largest producer of recumbent trikes in the U.S. The TerraTrike brand has been going strong for over 20 years, maintaining one of the industrys most extensive sales and support teams, with over 200 dealers in multiple countries.

BentriderOnline.com Review of Rambler AT

Online recumbent forum BentriderOnline.com has posted their review of the new Rambler AT.

As recumbent trikes take over more and more of the marketplace, people are expecting them to be able to all of the things their bikes do and the list keeps growing. One of those things on the wish list is off-roading. There have been a few off-road trikes over the last four years but almost all of them came with a wallet-shattering price tag. TerraTrike aims to change this with the new Rambler All Terrain.

As the name would indicate, the All Terrain is based on the Rambler but there are some major changes. The most obvious is the new 24 wheels shod with Schwalbe Smart Sam 242.10 tires. It also sports a very distinctive paint job. The main color is a medium forest greet and there are lots of orange accents. Theres a bit of metal flake in it and photos dont really do it justice. It has whiff of hunting gear about it, but more like hunting gear made by Versace. I really like the look.

Traveler Review on BROL

Bentrider Online, the leading authority on recumbent cycles just published a review of our Traveler folding trike.

Spring is here for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere! The closer we get to the sun and higher temperatures, the more our minds drift towards the adventures the warmer weather will bring. Some of those adventures may involve traveling to far off lands. Unfortunately, even most folding trikes dont really fold down enough to be avoid oversize charges on an airline. One exception is the TerraTrike Traveler.

The Traveler was introduced in 2015. At that time, several trike manufacturers were showing and promising ultra-folders designed for airline travel. Thus far, the Traveler is the only one to have reached production in meaningful numbers.

The general frame layout and steering geometry is largely the same as the companys popular all chromoly steel Rambler model. The major difference is the addition of three hinges that allow the Traveler to fold down into a shockingly small package. There is one hinge of the main frame tube as one would expect, but the Travelers ace-in-the-hole is the two addition hinges located on either side of the cruciform closer to the front wheels.

TerraTrike Featured on MRV The Buzz Article

One of the top RVing websites MRV The Buzz has just published an article featuring TerraTrike:

Besides comfort, the trikes offer an exciting time for its riders. "It is very much like a go-kart," Yonkers explains, "and when older people feel that, they immediately turn into a 10 year old." It is a social activity, too. When a person is on a bicycle they are usually hunched over, however on a trike a person is lounging and, since it is stable on three wheels, people can sit and talk to each other or pedal and talk to each other down the road.
