In 2010 Trice replaced their T model with the new Adventure. Both the T and the Adventure are higher, more relaxing, easier to get into and out-of and a bit slower than the old Ice Q/new Ice Sprint trikes.

The Adventure is available with 20” rear wheel, no suspension, 20” rear wheel with suspension and 26” rear wheel with and without suspension. The trikes with 20” wheels have lower gears for climbing than the slightly faster 26” wheel version. All Ice Adventure models have the Ice compact flat twist frame. The Ice Adventure’s handling is very good. High speeds are easily controllable, low speed handling is fine and the U turn circle is average. Brake steer and pedal steer are minimal. Being higher than the Sprint it will be slightly more likely to tip in fast, sharp turns. In practice this is rarely an issue for mature riders while those tough youthful riders of any age (you know who you are!) may like the high speed cornering of the lower Sprint. The Adventure also has more ground clearance which can be nice on some dirt roads or maybe urban obstacles like speed bumps.

The Adventure is available in many configurations. In ascending price they are: 20” rear wheel rigid: 20” rear with rear suspension and fully suspended. Ice’s rear suspension is not much changed from the T and Q. It’s a simple short travel elastomer and works well to smooth out road bumps. Their new front suspension uses a similar elastomer.

This is the entry level Adventure. Without their rear suspension it’s a bit lighter weight and lighter on your wallet too. This is a fine little trike, good high speed handling, fine low speed handling and a middle of the road turning circle. The 20” wheel gives lower gears for hill climbing.


Adventure 20” and 26" with suspension


The Ice rear suspension is available with a 20” or 26" rear wheel. It works well on smaller bumps and road vibrations. It’s not an off road/large hit system. Riding the suspended Adventure you can forget it has suspension. It is silent, no squeaks or rattles. Climbing it doesn’t bob and suck your energy.

Ice Adventure FS


The Adventure fs trike comes with 20" wheels all around or 20" on the front and 26" on the rear and elastomer suspension on all three wheels. The Adventure’s high ground clearance allows you to ride in some rougher places where a the all wheel suspension will be appreciated. It’s not a racing trike but it is quick enough for commuting or touring. The low pedals and high seat combine to make this a very relaxing trike.


Ice Adventure HD


All of the Adventure line are offered in an heavy duty (HD) version. The HDs have a 1 1/2" wider and deeper seat, 2" wider space between the front wheels and go from 1.5" to 2.0" tires. The weight limit is raised from 275lbs to 330lbs. The width and depth of the seat really increase the comfort of the trike. When the seat is set at its most upright some people feel like they are sliding off the front of the standard seat-the increased depth makes a lot of difference.

Another thing to know is that Ice trikes are made so it is an easy thing to change the configuration if your needs change. If you buy a rigid version but decide you really should have added the rear suspension we can unbolt the rear portion of the trike and add on the rear suspension. That is a great feature that not many people realize.
