The Ti-FLY full-suspension recumbent trike uses an innovative titanium-sprung integrated front suspension similar to those used on race-cars such as the Corvette C5 and Fiat 128 Sport.
Two beautiful parallel formed cross-pieces maintain a parallelogram structure and front suspension independence while interlinking and counterbalancing the sideforces in a way that obviates the need for a torsion stabilization bar.
The integrated structure makes optimal use of titanium's natural lightness, springiness, and strength as an integrated part of the frame.
Ti-FLY is one of the most innovative concepts ever seen in the recumbent trike industry and comes in various standard configurations including conventional Shimano derailleur systems, SRAM Dual-Drive hybrid systems, and geared systems such as the Shimano Alfine 11-speed, Rohloff Speedhub 14-speed, and the Pinion P1.18 18-speed gearbox.
40mm of independent travel increase rider comfort significantly, while the naturally lightweight titanium keeps the trike's weight and upkeep both to a minimum.
