    The GreenSpeed GT26 Back to the Future Way back in 1990, the very first GreenSpeed trikes were built with 26” rear wheels, and even one was built with a 700 c rear wheel. However it was not long before it was discovered that using a 20” rear wheel had a large number of advantages. Not only was the wheel itself lighter, stronger, and stiffer, but it also feed lower stresses in the frame under cornering, so the rear forks and even the main tube could be smaller and lighter, giving compounding weight savings. Plus the whole machine could be made more compact, and the performance improved. However we pondered why the trike with the smaller back wheel was faster when conventional wisdom said the larger wheels rolled easier. Thus we tested a large number of different sized tyres, and were surprised to find that at the same section size, same tyre construction, and same pressure, the smaller diameter tyres rolled easier! Plus we found that not only did wider tyres also roll easier, but the type of tyre construction played a far larger role in the comfort of the ride, than the diameter of the tyres. So in 1993 we changed over to building all our trikes with 20 inch wheels all round. And then in 2006, we when one step further and produced the GT3 folding trike with 16” wheels, which gave a further benefit in performance. However there still are a lot of people who firmly believe that the larger wheels are faster. “If smaller wheels are faster, why don’t racing cyclists use them?” Plus not everyone has the need for speed, and many just ride for exercise and enjoyment. Then there are those who just prefer the LOOK of the larger rear wheel, thus there is a continuous demand for a trike with a large rear wheel. So we thought why not? To overcome the problems with rear wheel flex and rear end instability, we have had some special rear hubs made with a much wider flange spacing than normal, which has resulted in 26” wheel with more lateral stiffness than a 20” rear wheel. Plus we have increased the section size of the rear forks. Thus with the longer wheelbase, the GT26 is even more stable at high speed than the GT20. For people who want even larger wheels than the GT26, the frame has been built to accept a 700c rear wheel, and 451 bsd rims may be used on the front. Thus the special Greenspeed wide rear hubs, and special front hubs are available for people who may want to build up two wheels sets – one for road use and one for off road use. Thanks to 7005 aluminium alloy frame the GT26 and the many other weight savings of the GT20, like the smaller kingpins, and special front hubs, the GT26 is still a light trike. Plus it retains all the other great features of the GT20 – the folding frame, the seat adjustable for both height and angle, as well as the curved cross member for easy entry and exit for the seat. So, now at last you can have your cake, and eat it too! A 26” rear wheeled trike with the legendary GreenSpeed roadholding and handling! The GT26 is available in all the GT20 colours, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow and Orange. The best news is that the price is only $2,890.

    The GreenSpeed Magnum which was introduced in 2012 has been one of our best selling trikes. It builds on over twenty years of designing and building the world’s best touring trikes, with the prototype being tested climbing the Himalayas. See video. The Magnum has a large number of features which make it particularly easy and enjoyable to ride. The cross member is Ved back to allow the rider to get their legs closer to the seat, which is adjustable for height, to make entry and exit easy. The seat is also adjustable for angle, so you can choose the amount of recline which is the most comfortable for you. The frame folds and all wheels have quick releases, so it is easy to transport.The Magnum is designed to take riders up to 400 lbs, so it is very strong, yet is made from 7005 aluminium.

    Q. Why are my tyres wearing out so fast?
    Your wheel track could be out (See Steering alignment Section) or your tyre pressure may be excessively low. High corner speed and brake lockups also cause rapid tyre wear. We have found tourists wear their tyres least, as commuters can be the opposite, depending on their route to work and their confidence to push the limits of tyre adhesion.

    Magnum SD/XL Overview
    The new 2017 Magnum trike builds on our very successful Magnum which was launched in 2012, and has been our best seller since then. The 2017 Magnum comes in two sizes, the SD which is the same size as the original Magnum, and the XL, which is the largest production trike in the world, built to accommodate riders up to 7 foot in height and weighing up to 450 lbs. It retains the unique features of the earlier Magnum which made it so popular, the seat height and angle adjustment, plus the press-button quick release on the front wheels, plus the on road and off road capabilities. However, to strengthen the frame over the earlier Magnum, we are using a rectangular section main tube, 1st used on the Anura introduced in 2006, and recently on the GT20, introduced in 2016. This tubing is both stronger and lighter than the round tubing used on the original Magnum, plus it allows quick and easy adjustment of the boom for leg length without having to realign the cranks each time, and positively prevents the cranks from twisting under sudden acceleration. And rather than the “Ved” cross member of the early Magnums, the SD/XL cross member is curved like the GT20, to allow the riders to stand closer to the seat, for easier entry and exit.
