ICE Sprint-X


The Sprint-X is another form of the versatile Sprint.  Add a shell seat and slick tires, and you have speed with folding and suspension options.

Out of stock


sprint-xNote:  As of late 2018 there has been shake-up in ICE Sprint/Sprint-X nomenclature.  All “Sprint” models are now “Sprint-X” models, but the “Sprint-X” has the lightweight racing wheels while the “Sprint-X Tour” has the touring wheelset.  This seems like a tempest in teacup to us.  The difference between the Sprint and Sprint-X was pretty superficial, as is the difference between Sprint-X and Sprint-X Tour.  Begging your pardon, we’ll just identify these trikes by their previous names.  We hope this doesn’t confuse people, but it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve overestimated the intelligence of the general public.

Take a Sprint frame, give it speed-specific component and a highly reclined shell seat and you have the Sprint-X… a fast folding trike.  If you want the speed of an ICE VTX or Catrike 700 but you need it to pack, this is the trike to look at.  We don’t usually have this in stock, but we’ll have a Sprint and we’ll have the shell seat, so you’ll get a feel for it.

Sprint-X back

A common view other riders have of the Sprint-X

Taking a hard look at it, the only thing that actually differentiates the Sprint-X from the Sprint is the paint job.  The black/gray Sprint-X frame is only available for a 26″ or 700c rear wheel, not a 20″ wheel.  (Nothing would stop you from fitting a 700c wheel on a Sprint, though this isn’t advertised.)  The parts choices are the same for both models and you could technically put the cheapest parts available on a Sprint-X frame.  But we’re going to keep to the spirit of things here and present the Sprint-X in a specific parts spec that we know to be optimized for speed, with the price variable on suspension choices.  We’ll detail that parts spec below, but realize that nothing keeps you from changing it.  The short of it is that you can get a Sprint-X in red, but the frame decals would just say “Sprint.”

Our price:  Using our selected spec, depending on suspension, $4,000 to $6,200.  (you might hazard a guess about what “X” stands for…)

ICE says:  

The practical cousin to the VTX, the Sprint X is likely to be the fastest foldable trike available. Highly customisable with suspension, seating and accessories to create the ultimate road tourer or commuter. The Sprint X extends the precision engineering and design of the standard Sprint range by utilising race-specification components. All trikes in the ICE Sprint X range are built on an optimised ICE frame featuring Compact Flat Twist Fold, No Brake Steer, and Rider Positioning System.
