TerraTrike Tandem Pro Recumbent Trike Review: Rocketship for two!

3 wheel bike

Every single mode of transport has somehow evolved over the years in order to deliver a more efficient, comfortable ride for the passenger. Bikes are no different in this regard, and may, in fact, represent one form of transportation that has the most options to suit the individual rider. The recumbent trike is a perfect example of that, as it delivers the same type of freedom and riding experience that you would expect from a regular bicycle, but in a way that is arguably much more comfortable.

When it comes to the 3 wheel bike, there may be no bigger or better name than Terra Trike. They have been delivering great bikes in this category since 1996, with many riders considering them the go-to name in the trike industry. They have taken things to a whole new level with the Terra Trike Tandem Pro recumbent bike, which, as the name suggests, is a 3 wheel bicycle that comfortably seats two riders. This is not like the tandem bikes you are familiar with, as the recumbent styling of the bike means that both riders have that laid back, low to the ground seating set-up. It is actually that proximity to the ground that helps make the Tandem Pro much more stable than traditional bikes, but there is much more to it than pure stability.

This particular tandem trike comes with an optional independent pedaling system that allows one rider to do all the hard work while the other sits back and enjoys the ride. Of course, most people opting for a trike bike will be doing so to enjoy the thrill of working together to tackle the long road ahead. Long roads are definitely not a problem for the Terra Trike Tandem Pro, as its rugged, yet lightweight design make it perfect for rides of long distances. It’s a smooth, comfortable ride no matter how far you choose to go. The Tandem Pro also comes with a 27-speed drivetrain to make even the steepest of hills a snap to negotiate. It also has linkage steering to make controlling the trike an absolute breeze, with no fighting for control necessary.

If there is a negative to be found, and there really are precious few, it may very well be with the price tag of the Tandem Pro. But riders who know anything about this style of bike are already aware of the costs, so sticker shock shouldn’t really be an issue for them. Sure, there are cheaper tandem trikes on the market, but you always end up getting what you pay for. Terra Trike is well known in the industry for a reason, and that is because they make high-quality recumbent bikes that are built to withstand the rigors of regular riding. The Terra Trike Tandem Pro is no different, and if you are in the market for a recumbent 3-wheel tandem trike, then this is the one to go with.
