Now, after the Spezi in Germersheim, more images emerged in a thread in the German Velomobilforum and in the profile of co-constructor ‘Jack-Lee’, showing several frame versions of the HiTrike. While all images show the trikes with tiller steering, more common under seat steering will be available as well.
The HiTrike Pi
The HiTrike Pi (13kg) looks a lot like a contender to the ICE Vtx (14.9kg) but with full suspension and without a weight penalty. Starting at €3990 the Pi compares to the ICE Vtx as well.
At least if you don’t add the €1500 Pinion 1.18 gear box to it…
This HiTrike Pi frame version with suspended one-sided rear swing arm as well as the green rigid frame version reminds me of the Windcheetah.
The HiTrike GT
Well, lets say that colour wouldn’t be my first choice. It also doesn’t look as gracefull as the Pi. Apart from that the HiTrike GT is likely comparable to the ICE Sprint FS, but at 12kg (26.5lbs) about 1/3 lighter!
I would love to test ride both.
