Greenspeed Anura (2008)

Price: $2,495.00


Many Greenspeed customers asked them for a delta trike that would enable easy entry and exit, a higher viewing position, a more comfortable seat, seat angle adjustment, mechanical disc brakes all around, a differential, aluminum frame, bar-end shifters, Speed-Drive and plenty of adjustment. This model is what they came up with!

The reason they have used the one wheel front and two wheels rear format (delta) for this trike is that it avoids having the cross member in front of the seat, making it easier to sit down, and the wheel in front of the rider gives a feeling of greater protection when riding in traffic. It also resembles the traditional upright trike, making people feel more comfortable with this format.

Some of the problems reported with deltas on the market were the front wheel skating sideways on steep hills, and poor braking. Thus Greenspeed have fitted a differential as standard equipment, and also use three wheel disc brakes to eliminate these problems. The differential balances the drive to each rear wheel so that the trike will turn easily in either direction and track straight up steep hills. The two rear brakes are controlled by the right hand lever, and the front by the left, so the braking can be modulated to obtain maximum braking on any surface.

Greenspeed have used under seat steering to put the hands in the most natural and ergonomic place - beside your hips. This avoids the cheaper "Ape Hanger" handle bars, with the "sit up and beg" riding position, and having to swing the bars in the opposite direction to which you want to go.

Having found both an increase in performance with the lighter weight of the 16" wheels, and reduction in overall size and weight, Greenspeed have used 16" for the delta with our 16" x 1 1/2" Scorcher tyres. These tyres were 1st used on their GT3s and have proven to have both a lower rolling resistance and a better ride than most 20" tyres.
