Tricycle

  • Back in April, Ukraine ebike maker Delfast announced that work had started on a three-wheeled electric package delivery solution. After reaching the final development phase in July, the Trike is now on sale.
  • Regular readers may know Delfast for its long-range, powerful ebikes, but the Ukraine-based company announced that it was branching out to three-wheelers in April. And now the design of the frame is done, and engineers are prepping for manufacture.
  • What do you get when you cross a camping trailer, a tricycle, and a boat? Well, if you're Latvian design start-up Zeltini, you end up with the Z-Triton, which is currently in the prototype stage and sleeps two people ... and a small dog.
  • If you've ever been to Vietnam, then you'll have seen the rickshaw taxi-trikes in which the pedaler sits behind the passenger. Well, the Companion Bike is a carbon fiber version of those, that folds inwards for storage and transit.
  • The Tricksy is designed to serve as both a cargo trike and a shopping cart.
  • ​Back in 2014, Bulgarian architects Mihail Klenov and Martin Angelov introduced the Halfbike, a minimalist stand-up trike designed for short commutes. That was followed in 2015 by the improved Halfbike II. Now, they've upped their game once again, with – you guessed it – the Halfbike 3.
  • While some people like the added stability offered by trikes as compared to bikes, the things can actually be tippier when cornering. The Italian-designed Tris Bike addresses that issue, with tilting front wheels that let it lean into turns. It's also got an electric-assist motor.
  • ​If you find conventional bikes uncomfortable, you can always go with a recumbent. And if you want added stability, then a recumbent TRIKE may be more to your liking. I just finished spending a couple of weeks trying out one of the speediest models, the Catrike 700, and the thing is a hoot!
  • ​Back in 2014, we first heard about the Rungu Juggernaut, a fat-tired upright trike designed for travelling across loose terrain. The following year, Rungu came out with the motorized Electric Juggernaut. Now, the company is introducing the less-expensive pedal-assist Electric Juggernaut MDV.
  • ​If you work in the city but live outside, traveling by train or bus can be much less stressful than taking the car. But the distance from train station to your desk might still be quite a trek by foot. Pim Bicycles is adding another option for the last mile, with the fast-folding Mylo e-scooter.​
  • Jack Skopinski's latest industrial-looking semi-recumbent electric-assist ride riffs off of 2016's EV4 trike, with that signature tilting mechanism, but moves the pedals to the front of the frame and replaces the upright bike seat with a laid-back bucket.​
  • ​Why power your bike with just your legs, if your arms can be put to work too? That's the thinking behind the Varibike, an arm- and leg-powered bicycle. Two-wheelers aren't for everyone, though. It's with that in mind that the recumbent Varibike Trike is now being introduced.
