Top 5 Incredibly Fast Recumbent Trikes

The following is for speedsters only. It is a video where one man’s opinion is expressed. I certainly can agree with at least most of what he selected as the fastest trikes. Of course the very last one can’t hardly be compared to the others since it is motorized. Anyway, here is what the YouTube description says:

If you like to ride fast you will want to have one of these recumbent trikes. They can go amazingly fast on pedal power alone. The last trike is by far the fastest, but it does have some … er … make that “considerable” e-assistance.

CATRIKE 700!700/c1dnt
TerraTrike Sportster

Note: Some of you may have noticed that this same video just recently posted on the Trike Asylum (TA) blog. It is just “coincidence” and not the first time something like this has happened and I am sure it will continue to happen from time to time. With both blogs being similar it is bound to happen. Sometimes the TA article posts before mine and sometimes my article posts before the one on TA. I just want you to know that neither of us are using each other’s blog for material to write about.

  1. Power to weight ratio is, undoubtably, what really counts the most. The lightest trike would win any race most of the time.
