Selection Criteria

First, think about what you need the trike for. Will you be using it on a regular or an occasional basis?

There are trikes available to purchase for occasional use, which will be cheaper.

You will need to spend more money if the recumbent trike is to be used a lot, as you will need a heavier bike that will be able to withstand wear and tear.

There are two types of trikes available on the market today sporting equipment, namely, the delta and tadpole. The delta trike is designed as a conventional tricycle. It has a pair of wheels in the rear. The tadpole is quite unconventional, as it has a pair of wheels in the front like the model shown above.

Both models have their advantages and disadvantages, and it is a matter of personal choice. If you have difficulty in climbing on a low chair, it is better to buy a trike delta-type.

Coming for the speed with which you can ride this trike, it is generally observed that those with the seats low and narrow ones on which you can take a relaxed posture seem to go really fast.
