Eon green back in Catrike color lineup

 

Catrike has resolved its production issues for the eon-green color and is now producing recumbent trikes in this color again.

One of the few manufactures doing its own in-house frame production and powder-coating, Catrike has extraordinary flexibilty in producing different colors and in shaking up its color lineup. However, the dark side of this is that when some sort of production or supply glitch hits, a popular color like eon-green can simply disappear overnight.

This is what happened to eon green in October 2016, and it took some months for the issues to get resolved.

For now, eon green is available again on all Catrike recumbent trikes.
