A new recumbent from Terratrike, named as Gran Tourismo is available for trike riders at our LBC recumbent store in Sacramento. Gran Tourismo is designed with an alluring sophistication to deliver mind blowing performance as an ultimate touring machine.
Gran Tourismo is designed by incorporating the result of last 20 years Terratrike innovation and customers feedback over its original Tour trike. It is expected to be the most comfortable Terratrike launched till date to offer best handling on road experience.
The leading US recumbent trike manufacturer Terratrike has once again shook the entire recumbent trike industry. It has launched the first recumbent trike loaded with a 750W 5-phase motor to support zero resistance peddling system. Rambler E.V.O. (EVO is abbreviated for Electric Vehicle Option) is an innovative one of its kind, an electric assist recumbent trike, not only in US but across the world.
Terratrike joined hands with Falco eMotors around two years back to build this electric motor for them. The motor comes fitted into the rear wheel hub. The embedded torque sensor in the motor boosts your peddling experience to make it seamless and smoother.
“We’ve been working on this for over two years with the Falco team,” said Yonker, “and we couldn’t be happier with the result. The E.V.O. represents the next step for recumbents – getting our customers out for longer rides, taking the overall triking experience to a new level.”

It is the latest model unveiled this month by Terratrike, the largest producer of recumbent trikes in the US. The best part about this recumbent is its high versatility.
Rambler AT Best for Off Roading
Rambler AT rocks on the road as well as off the road. First of all, you only need to pump up some pressure in its tires. Finally, you can cruise your bike on any path, whether its on-road or off-road. Although, if you really want to enjoy the essence of Rambler AT, take it off road. You can easily create a passive suspension system by releasing some air out of its tires. You won’t need to add any extra shock absorber to that comfort, its just about maintaining the right pressure in tires.
