Description

The VTX is built for speed: low, long, narrow in track, optimized for aerodynamics. It is several pounds lighter than the Catrike 700, using a carbon fiber shell seat with an innovative system of pads that allow for better airflow under the back and an adjustable recline. The VTX does not fold, but it can be broken down for transport and shipping. Titanium front axles are an option.  The hydroformed frame has a chiseled, muscular look, a lot like your legs will after you’ve taken your VTX for a few good runs.

Like the Catrike 700, this trike isn’t for everyone. The design reflects an uncompromising pursuit of speed which might fit the paradigm of the road racing cyclist who is only a part of Easy Street’s diverse clientele. If speed is what you want, and you want it on 3 wheels, then you should try a VTX.  You might like that shell seat more than you think, or not.

Our price: depends on spec, but generally $4,250 to $5,900
