Catrike offers new full suspension Dumont recumbent trike

Published January 30, 2017

ORLANDO, Fla. (BRAIN) — Catrike's new Dumont model is a performance full-suspension recumbent trike.

The brand's made-in-USA frame has rear suspension with a progressive travel path, custom spring rate and damping for a balance of performance and comfort. The shock is actuated via a CNC-machined swing arm pivoting on Teflon coated bearings, providing 50mm of travel.

Up front, the Dumont employs Catrike's anti-dive front suspension spindle to take the edge off. Delivering just under an inch of travel, the anti-dive system allows each axle to move independently and is not affected by braking forces. The result is that all wheels stay firmly planted on the ground while the suspension remains active, the company says.

The long and low rider position and fully adjustable boom provide stable weight distribution while the ergonomic backrest is fully adjustable for fit. The Dumont has a 26-inch rear wheel.

The bike is completed with Avid BB7 disc brakes, an FSA Gossamer triple crankset with SRAM GX 10-speed rear derailleur, Microshift front derailleur and SRAM 500 bar-end type shifters. 

MSRP is $4,150.
