Greenspeed recumbents Down Under

Greenspeed is the first company to bring a commercially viable recumbent trike to market.

Its founder, Ian Sims, has a long history of design and engineering and a deep understanding of what works.

The Greenspeed GTO is the trike that really started it all. Because of its take-apart capability, it was relatively easy to ship, and helped Greenspeed form a worldwide dealer network. The design of the GTO was refined in 2004 and has filtered into all modern-day Greenspeed trikes including the GT1-5, X1-5, and Magnum.

The GTO remains one of the finest handling, robust platforms in the world today, even as other designs and innovations have evolved around it.

Greenspeed has literally "done it all": manufacturing, marketing, design, engineering in the recumbent industry.

Anura / Anura Quad

The Anura is a great townie. As a delta trike it has a much higher seat than almost all tadpole trikes. This makes it much easier to get onto and gives you better visibility in traffic.

Signature features of the Anura include

GT# Series

GT# trikes are folding trikes with 16" wheels. The design and engineering derives from the venerable GTO model with folding instead of take-apart transportability.

These trikes have a Capreo drivetrain that compensates for the small drivewheel.

GTO
Wide, stable, take-apart trike well suited to touring.
Magnum

The Magnum is the product of Greenspeed experience and customer feedback.

The Magnum has heavy duty written all over it. With a weight capacity of 400lbs. and a ground clearance of 5", this trike is off-road ready.
