TRUBLU SPACEFRAME

TRUBLU Spaceframe is also designed as the ultimate school's racing trike to be durable, reliable and easy for students to ride fast.

The model is based on the principles of simplicity and efficiency, for schools pedal prix racing, with minimal frontal area for best aerodynamic profile. The framework of the Spaceframe allows for the best power transfer to the rear wheel, maximum strength and rider protection combined with minimum weight and the absolute best cornering ability. This enables riders to avoid crashes and maintain high speed in corners, resulting in the highest possible average speed.

This point was proven in the 2016 Wonthaggi HPV race where, despite being the overall race winner and holding the fastest lap, the trike never suffered a single rollover. A vehicle which is less likely to rollover will reduce the likelihood of injury to riders as well as being faster and minimising accidents, thus reducing the cost in both time and money required for repairs.

Built from 4130 chromolly to give long term durability, it is lightweight and allows schools to modify it in future years with standard welding techniques. This trike is designed to allow race winning performance.

We understand that teachers often take the burden of preparing trikes for races so parts used are picked for their ability to continue working well with only minimal maintenance.

The instantly adjustable rider length, (typically takes only 2 seconds), allows a 280mm range of rider lengths to share one trike. Thus effectively providing better efficiency, comfort and safety. This feature makes TRUBLU the safest and most efficient racing trikes available.

The rider headrest has been ergonomically designed to support the shoulders and neck whilst preventing any pressure on sensitive vertebrae. The headrest also ensures that the seatbelts stay in the correct position over the rider's shoulders.

The very low centre of gravity (75mm seat height) means higher cornering speeds are safely attainable and improves rider safety by reducing tendency to rollover.

Slide out axles take only seconds to swap wheels and allow use in fairings/bodyshells with closed sides and better aerodynamic efficiency.

Adjustable Ackermann steering geometry allows the trike to be set up for optimal cornering.
