Trisled is an Australian builder of high speed velomobiles and recumbent trikes. However, they’ve been getting a lot of news coverage for their four wheeled load carrying recumbent. Here are a few photos of some of their innovative designs.

The flat bed quad starts at $4000. So make sure you bring your check book.

Leaning Quad for Seniors

Img_1751 Img_1753

I saw a couple of companies at a bicycle show in Shanghai that were selling leaning quad cycles designed for seniors and mobility impaired. I asked the rep about the quads and he said that they sell quite a few of them to Chinese customers. He said there wasn’t much interest outside of Asia.

I know a few seniors here in the States that would love to ride to the store, etc., but all that’s available to them at the bike shop are mountain, road, or cruiser bicycles. It’s really great to see some companies putting their efforts behind bicycles for special needs even if it is on the other side of the Pacific.

I was so excited by all the bicycles at the show that I forgot to get the Chinese company’s names. Ugh!!!

Anyway, here are some photos of the leaning quad.
