The GreenSpeed Magnum which was introduced in 2012 has been one of our best selling trikes. It builds on over twenty years of designing and building the world’s best touring trikes.
The Magnum has a large number of features which make it particularly easy and enjoyable to ride. The cross member is Ved back to allow the rider to get their legs closer to the seat, which is adjustable for height, to make entry and exit easy. The seat is also adjustable for angle, so you can choose the amount of recline which is the most comfortable for you. The frame folds and all wheels have quick releases, so it is easy to transport.
The Magnum is designed to take riders up to 220 kgs, so it is very strong, yet is made from 7005 aluminium alloy, so it is not a heavy machine. With its large Big Apple tyres, high ground clearance, and wide range of gears, it is very at home on the road.
The seat was designed by a chiropractor, and has built in suspension and ventilation, which with the balloon tyres, will give you a comfortable ride. Plus the famous GreenSpeed steering geometry and the oversize brakes, make steering and braking effortless.
Easy Crossover Steering Geometry
Unlike many trikes which use “direct” steering, the Magnum uses the GreenSpeed “crossover” steering which makes the steering much easier, due to the leverage in the linage, and the fact that one is using one’s biceps, rather than one’s wrists or the smaller muscles in one’s arms.Plus it gives superior Ackermann compensation, reducing tyre scrub and drag. And unlike the bushes or bike head set bearings used in some trikes, the Magnum uses industrial ball races for the kingpin bearings, giving low friction, long life, and ease of replacement.
