Greenspeed GT3 Series II (2008)

Price: $2,750.00


The GT3 Series II is thoroughly refined and updated the GT model trikes. The biggest upgrade is to the steering. The GT Series II features a design with no brake steer and improved feel. The new trike's other changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary but result in a lighter and more refined package.

The basic concept of a compact folding trike that can tuck away into your trunk but still ride like a larger trike has stayed the same. The GT models still have the GT3 with drum brakes and Tiagra components, and the GT5 with the disc brakes and 105 components, available in Red and Blue. However, the GT-series had so many developments that Greenspeed decided to release it as the GT Series II. The main thing they looked at was the steering and Paul built a trike with adjustable steering to try different combinations of camber, castor and scrub radius.

Greenspeed's focus on the steering was 2 fold.
1. They wanted a trike that would give absolutely no 'brake steer', but that would not make the trike too heavy in the steering.
2. They wanted to make the steering feel smoother for those newbies, which sometimes commented that the GT model trikes felt twitchy.
