Sun Recumbent Trikes
Sun not only
builds several models of recumbent bikes but also a few models of three
wheeled delta and tadpole recumbent tricycles.
better known for their delta trikes
which have two rear wheels like this EZ-3

which have two front wheels like this EZ Tadpole
bikes the Sun trikes are designed for comfort and economy, not for
performance and are guaranteed for riders up to 300 lb. Large riders
sometimes like them more than smaller riders. The Sun trikes start at
around $800 (EZ-3) and weigh as much as 65 lb (EZ-3 USX) making them among the
least expensive and heaviest trikes available. Even their tadpole is
more of a comfort trike than a performance tricycle.
makes one design in more than one price range the more expensive model
is a bit lighter and has higher quality components. Examples of this are
the EZ-Tadpole SX and CX, and the EZ-3 SX and AX. Their EZ-3 USX is the
heaviest trike we carry. At 65 lb it’s heavier than any tandem we stock.
The lighter Sun trikes are not that much lighter than the heavier models
but the components are often significantly nicer. You have to decide if
you want to spend that much more on them for the little gain in weight
or if the components make it worthwhile for you.
trikes (and bikes for that matter) use very similar seats with large
well padded seat bases and mesh backs with adjustable recline. Test
riding is the best way to tell if you like a particular bike or trike.
We try to keep these Sun trikes in stock through out the riding season
so you can make a good decision.
NOTE: Sun does not allow us to ship their bikes to customers
in the US. If you live too far away from us to come test ride and cannot
find a Sun dealer in your area we could ship the Sun recumbent of your
choice to most any bike shop near you for assembly. We usually can
arrange to pay the shop for the assembly.
