Catrike discontinues Hyper-yellow and Eon-green recumbent colors
Catrike has discontinued its popular Hyper-yellow and Eon-green colors due to supply issues with the green powder-coating ingredient used in both colors.
Because Catrike builds and powdercoats its own frames in-house, they have tremendous flexibility in making production changes on the fly. They also enjoy experimenting with powder combinations to make unique colors.
Hyper-yellow and Eon-green were the result of this experimentation and both relied on the same green ingredient component. However, late in 2016, there was a glitch in the supply of this green powder.
Now, the few remaining new Eon-green and Hyper-yellow Catrikes will be the last ones.
Other manufacturers using standard European RAL colors can produce a hyper-yellow equivalent by using an RAL equivalent.
(Note: some day-glo / flourescent-style colors can have long-term fading from exposure to the sun.)
