If you are a bit more adventurous and would like to ride your new recumbent trike both on asphalt roads and on good gravel or forest roads, the AZUB T-Tris AR will easily fulfill your dreams. AR stands for Adventure Riding and is our entry-level model with all 26? wheels that will allow you to go much further than you expected.
Since we introduced the tricycle with three large wheels to our offer, this combination has been very popular. 26? wheels go over all bumps more efficiently, making riding a recumbent trike more comfortable. They also raise the seat height so the rider has a better view and it is easier to get on. And then there’s the ground clearance that trikes with three 26? wheels have so much that nothing is stopping you. Finally, we have to mention that the three big wheels look good. They offer the cyclist a kind of royal feeling of riding.
We built the T-Tris AR based on our long-proven T-Tris design, which has no suspension but can have a folding frame as well as an electric drive option. Thanks to the aluminum alloy frame and the massive triangular rear fork, the frame is sufficiently stiff even with large wheels and when going through corners quickly. The AR’s steering geometry is more stable than its siblings, and you’ll appreciate it on longer country rides, especially on fast, long descents.
Even the first look at our new seat suggests that the ride in it will be really comfortable. Sit in it like in a soft cloud and experience the feeling of absolute nirvana. But not only that. While riding, you will be supported by the side padding, and ingenious shaping in the shoulder part will allow the necessary movement to the sides. There is enough lightly padded space around the tailbone for you to fit into the seat properly without feeling any pressure. And then there are the ventilation ducts. Wide enough for excellent air distribution and, at the same time, cleverly shaped to help ergonomic sitting.
The critical point of the whole seat is its front part. We paid great attention to its shape. We spent endless time discussing and testing it as we had to reconcile two conflicting requirements. The first was enough space for pedaling and movement of the legs, and the second was preventing the rider’s body from sliding down from the seat. The result is a raised central nose filled with three different types of foam to provide sufficient support while offering blasting comfort even during long rides.
Other necessary details are the asymmetrically shaped reflective surfaces at the back of the seat, where you will find the seat size designation too. In the upper part of the backrest, there is also a large pocket the size of an A4 / US letter with two inner pockets and a waterproof zipper. The zipper is equipped with a comfortable pull for easy opening. Of course, there must also be holes for placing the flag in the seat tube.
The entire construction of the cover is made of durable materials, and the robustness is further increased by using the well-known Hypalon material, which is located on the sides of the seat. Hypalon is used primarily in highly stressed products, for example, in the maritime industry or in producing various protective suits. On our seat, it helps to make it durable and tight.
Naturally, you can also have your bike fitted with the state-of-the-art SHIMANO STEPS EP8 drive or Brose S drive which offers a balanced ratio of power needed on steep hills, low noise and fantastic energy efficiency.
