INTO THE RIDE #95
The 2011 Trizard
by Randy Schlitter
The Trizard has been changing minds about the delta configuration. Traditional delta trikes are shorter, higher, and heavier. With a lower seat height, amazing stability, and an efficient drivetrain, the Trizard delivers performance beyond traditional delta trikes – performance that competes nicely with the tadpoles. Now starting the third year of production, the Trizard is evolving into an even more refined and capable trike.
For 2011 we have gone back to offering only one version of this trike, upgrading it from the lower priced unit, and pricing it between the low and high models. Here is a run down of new features and accessories:
The 2011 Trizard features what we call the “multi-mount block”. At this location, the seat, idler, and handlebar are attached, and move fore and aft together for seat adjustment. This means faster adjustments for seat location, and no worries about idler position or handlebar location. We retained the unique feature of reversing the handle bar location from top to bottom. On the new multi-mount block it is only a matter of removing four screws to move the steering pivot mount. The idler is also relocated to the other mount position using a 14mm box wrench. And of course we retained the quick pin seat attach so removing the seat and changing the seat angle takes only seconds. The idler has also been upgraded to a more sophisticated cross-over model, including an aluminum cog on the drive side. These changes have resulted in a smoother and quieter drivetrain.
The multi-block not only combines idler, seat, and handlebar in one place, but it also can be installed so the handlebar is on the bottom or top.
Topping off the changes for 2011 is more color choices. Available in Titan Yellow, Rush Red, and Charcoal.
