An Upgraded GT20 with rear suspension

Description

Greenspeed GT20 RS

The GT20-RS Trike is a GT20 trike with rear suspension, introduced at the 2018 Recumbent Cycle-Con show in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. For the RS, the gear train has been upgraded from a 24-speed system to a 27-speed system. Like the GT20, the seat is adjustable for both angle and height. And is available in red, blue, green, yellow and orange. The major reason for most people buying a recumbent is for more comfort that you get on the small saddle of an ordinary bike. A number of trikes are now offering mechanical suspension, but this inevitably adds weight, which you feel at the first stroke of the pedals, and labor with up the hills. Whereas the GT20 has what is known as virtual suspension. 1st the Scorcher tires are made to our own design, which is suppler than any other tire on the market, ensuring a lot of the road shock is calmed before it reaches the trike. Then the frame is designed to flex, and finally, the seat is laced with a shock cord, so that it gives a measure of suspension. Plus the seat frames have been anodized instead of powder coated, to allow the seat fabric to move more easily on the frame. The seat was designed by a chiropractor so that it provides both lumbar and shoulder support. Another feature that enhances your comfort is the adjustability of the seat.

Folding Frame

The GT20 is a completely new frame design from Greenspeed. We are using the rectangular cross-section main tube as used on the Anura, which both stronger and lighter than the round tube used on the Magnum. And to make further gains in strength and weight we have eliminated the welds in the main tube and the cross member, by making the front main tube in one piece, and cross member also in one piece, and curved so that it comes closer to the seat to enable the rider to mount and dismount easier. The frame material is 7005 aluminum alloy, which is stronger than the more commonly used 6061 aluminum alloy and stronger than mild steel, yet only 1/3 the weight. <!–
