CARBONTRIKES Race SL

CARBONTRIKES Race SL model is a further development of the world's lightest and fastest trike, the successful CARBONTRIKES Race. Here we have gone a step further to make the trike even faster and far lighter. By a much more advanced lay-up of carbon fiber in the frame and handlebars. As well as the use of lightweight components and wheels, we have been able to reduce the weight even more. Together with the use of lightweight competition tire the acceleration and riding uphill will be made with a smile. On the SL model we optimize the carbon fiber lay-up based on the customer bodyweight, length and riding style.

The CARBONTRIKES Race SL is suitable for racing, mountain/hilly areas, fast training and appreciates by every experienced connoisseur who searches an extremely light, fast, and hand-built trike. The laser adjusted steering give minimal rolling resistance and it is precise on fast serpentine roads.

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, looking for an aerodynamic trike made for breaking speed records on the road, we recommend to take a look at CARBONTRIKES Race Aero.
