recumbent

A laidback recumbent cycle is a great way to get exercise and ride a bike in comfort.

At AlphaBENT we have recumbent two-wheelers (recumbent bikes) and three-wheelers (trikes). We make no bones about it, a recumbent bike is a challenge to ride! However, for those who can ride them, they are fun, fast, and comfortable.

By and large, though, most people who come in the shop would have too much difficulty riding a recumbent bike. A recumbent trike is a Plug-and-Play alternative that anyone can ride without the risk of falling over.

We maintain the largest collection of quality-made recumbent trikes that we know of by manufacturers from all over the world. If we don't have it, it probably didn't meet our high standards.

Greenspeed

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.

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.

Full-size touring trike packs down small

HP Velotechnik has brought the ride engineering of its popular Gekko model to full-form.

The two wide spread front wheels and low center of gravity gives the Scorpion impressive stability and a unique look.

The Scorpion FS 20 offers the smooth ride of a full suspension trike while preserving the turning performance that HP Velotechnik boasts in the Scorpion model lineup.

Add an electric assist motor to the package of a Scorpion FS 26 and you get the S-Pedelec. Upgrade the components to be off-road ready and you get the Enduro.

The Scorpion FX folds in a minute down to a package that fits into most hatchback cars. The wheels can be taken off in another minute so that it can fit into the trunk of a car.
