The first special tire for tricycle recumbents. Tire construction and profile
contours are coordinated with the special requirements of a multi-track vehicle
in mind. Tricycle recumbents exert completely different loads on tires than
conventional bicycles. Nevertheless the tires must be light and fast, because
drive is still achieved through muscle power and should therefore be as effective
as possible. Massive motor vehicle tires are out of the question. The Tryker takes
on the challenge of minimal rolling friction and high durability for the recumbent
tricyclist. It has ECE-R75 certification for faster E-Bikes.
I ride a catrike 700 and purchased these tires trying to find something that would help deal with harsh city streets. These tires are very large, very wide, with high sidewalls and serious treads. If you are a very heavy rider (I weigh 160 lbs) or these tires are driven by an electric motor, or you are dealing with very poor road surfaces or gravel and dirt, or you are heavily laden with cargo then this is a superb tire. If a smoother ride than Schwalbe Ultremos is what you need there are other more appropriate choices.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
