CARBONTRIKES Race Aero

The CARBONTRIKES Race Aero model is a further development of the world's lightest and fastest trike, the successful CARBONTRIKES Race. Here we have focused on the aerodynamics together with a super low weight. To keep the weight down to a minimum we have used an advanced lay-up of carbon fiber in the frame, the aero profile handlebar and using of lightweight components. We have even use hi-grade titanium screws on selected places. By also using super high profile carbon fiber wheels, we have been able to reduce the wind resistance even more and will by that save times every kilometer on a racing event or fighting against a strong head wind.

On the Aero model we optimizes the carbon fiber lay-up based to the customer bodyweight, length and riding style. CARBONTRIKES Race Aero is best suitable for competition, fast training and will of course be appreciates by every trike rider who searches an extremely light, fast, and hand-built trike that also attracts attention for its beauty. Like all models of the CARBONTRIKES the laser adjusted steering is precise and provides millimeter precision during fast cornering and minimal rolling resistance.

For those who use their trike as a fast daily, for touring or looking for good comfort before maximum speed, we recommend CARBONTRIKES Race as it is a more robust trike or for the one who are counting grams when they are going up the mountain, we recommend to take a look at CARBONTRIKES Race SL.
