Gravel & Road

Do you enjoy discovering new spots of nature away from main routes? Do you often find yourself on potholed tarmac? Would you like to take your trike on a long gravel path leading to new horizons? Then the GR is the great choice for you. The letters GR stand for Gravel and Road, indicating that during its development, we thought of both tarmac roads and gravel paths meandering through the countryside. The three 26” wheels give the TRIcon higher seating, better passability through terrain and splendid view. The rear suspension provides the required comfort, while the absent front suspension makes for lighter weight and better conservation of power.

A balanced combination

To provide the GR with excellent riding properties, we have not only given it the wide Syntace rear hub with through axle design used for downhill bikes which provides the GR with excellent stiffness and makes it handle bends exceptionally well, but there are also wide hubs at the front. Thanks to them, the trike doesn’t suffer in bends approached even at high speed, and what is more, they further improve the riding properties of this unique machine the TRIcon GR undoubtedly is. Components you can choose for your TRIcon GR include such delicacies as the 1×12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with a range of up to 500 %, or the 18-speed Pinion P1.18 gearbox that we offer as the only manufacturer of recumbents. This one achieves an extremely impressive 636 % gear range. Naturally, you can also have your bike fitted with the state-of-the-art SHIMANO Steps E6100 drive which offers a balanced ratio of power needed on steep hills, low noise and fantastic energy efficiency.

Far and further still

The TRIcon GR will make you more than happy. Thanks to the three large wheels you will be able to set off beyond the limits of possibilities your regular trike can offer you. Woodland paths and cart tracks will open up new challenges for you and every outing will become a great adventure. What is more, the GR is also the best choice if you dream of really long expeditions to far-flung corners of the world. After all, we built the first one for an expedition that started in Great Britain and continued across the whole of Europe and the African continent all the way to South Africa. And such feat requires not only good passability through terrain and sufficient comfort, but also great reliability and easy serviceability. That is why we chose our tried and tested TRIcon with three 26” wheels and added GR to the name of the resulting model.

The pros and cons of 3×26″

The benefits of three 26 wheels are perhaps known to most of you. A larger diameter means less resistance when rolling and thus higher speed on flat ground, the bigger wheels roll over obstacles easier and you are much more likely to buy good-quality tires and inner tubes for them. As a matter of fact, you sport all wheels with the same diameter, which means you don’t need to carry two spare tubes of different sizes and you’ll also do with one spare tire if needed. And curiously, some people find three wheels of the same size more appealing. Sometimes rather uncritically.

Nevertheless, there are some drawbacks as well. TRIcon GR is simply a big trike that is also wider compared to its smaller siblings because it’s equipped with 135 mm fat bike hubs in the front. It requires a big enough space for storing and can by no means fold into our trailer designed for hauling TRIcon and Ti-FLY. It is foldable anyway and the final bundle looks surprisingly small. It’s thanks to our “F2F-U” system that is used on TRIcon GR as well. Last but not least, the sitting position on the “GR” is higher than on the smaller TRIcon 20 or 26. Hence you get a better view but also worse stability. You’ll need to lean well to a side when riding quickly through a curve. If you go at full throttle in rough terrain, you’ll certainly get a wild euphoric ride but don’t forget to hold on tight at any moment. 

MAIN FEATURES

Smooth adjustment of the seat

Ever since we started back in 2000, we have always thought that a bike should adapt to the rider and not the other way round. That’s why we used an adjustable seat for our first bike, in which both the angle and the pedal distance were adjustable. With each further development stage, we introduced a more accurate adjustment, until 2013, when we reached a stage of adjusting without positions. This concept is based on a sliding sleeve, which we produce in a straight version for our tricycles and some bicycles, as well as in a curved version for recumbents.

F2F U - Fold to flat ultra

In addition to folding the front part, you can also rotate the rear fork which is designed to fit neatly just below the rear of the frame. This will turn the tricycle into an incredibly small package which you can easily fit into the boot of a small car or into our carry case should you wish to take the trike for example on a plane. And the whole manoeuvre will take you no more than 5 minutes without the need for any tools.

Folding mechanism

In 2015, we introduced a new folding mechanism we are really proud of. We wanted to create a folding tricycle that would be adequately stiff and whose folding mechanism would be smooth and easy to operate. The feedback from hundreds of AZUB riders has confirmed that we have definitely accomplished what we had planned.

Folding handlebars

It took us hours and hours of thinking and discussions before we thought up and then designed probably the most sophisticated folding handlebars in the world of recumbent tricycles. We would rather not mention the number of prototypes we have made...

IT IS SIMPLY UP TO YOU

It does not matter whether your biggest wish is a bike in Ferrari red or a sky blue one, whether you dream at night of an aggressive looking number or a sporty specimen, of a sophisticated stylish model or of pure comfort. Neither does it matter whether you are planning short, relaxing trips or long expeditions which might take several months. We can help you fulfil an incredible number of wishes. And regardless of whether we will be configuring and building you a bike in the very basic version or one with all the cutting-edge elements, you can rest assured we will take the same care. For us, the aim is simply to see a happy person with a smile on his or her face every time they get on their bike.

Components

For years, we have tried not to restrict our cyclist customers in the selection of components they can have on their bicycles. After all, there are so many different people with so many different tastes and needs. Plus, the world of cycling is bursting with interesting solutions. Therefore, we can offer you both a traditional shifter with a triple crankset as well as the unique Pinion gearbox, or the Shimano Alfine Di2 electronic shifting. Likewise, you may want to ride on tarmac roads with tyres as thin as a sheet of paper or you might just prefer the comfort of wide balloon tyres. That is why we have such a wide range of components. Nevertheless, if you happen not to find what you need, do not despair. Feel free to contact one of our dealers or us directly. We will be happy to help you find the right combination of components.

Accessories

As well as our wide range of components, we also offer an extensive list of accessories you can mount on your bike. Well, you cannot be expected to be happy with the same rack and the same lights when commuting to work and when cycling in rough terrain. And because we enjoy both commuting to work and revelling in rough terrain, as well as riding across the continent, we do have an idea of what might come in handy. Moreover, we listen to our customers and we listen very carefully. So it is often you, who come up with a great idea. You try it out and then we will start producing it again, for you.

Bikes for everyone

Not everyone on this planet is lucky enough to be healthy, fully mobile and able to set off wherever they want at the drop off a hat. Helping people with a variety of physical health problems or even psychological problems gives our business a completely different dimension. And because cycling is often one of the few ways such people can enjoy outdoor exercise, we are always overjoyed when we manage to build a bike for someone who really needs it. In our offer you will therefore find features such as brakes and shifting mounted only one side, the Shimano Di2 electronic shifting that requires very little force to control, or a rarity such as push brakes. Please, take a look at all the solutions we are able to offer and build for you and let us know if you require something else entirely, we will try to build a bike even for you. The thing is, we want to build bikes for everyone!

Made in the Czech Republic

We are very proud to be personally acquainted with the person who welds our frames, to know who then paints them and who operates the laser with which all the necessary holes are burned into the tubes. We are equally pleased with the fact that we employ our neighbours and friends and that most of them have been working for us for many years now. Apart from some ordinary components such as derailleurs or tyres, our bikes are made in the Czech Republic with some components sourced from nearby Slovakia. This allows us to respond to our customers’ demands rapidly and also to produce small number orders of just several models a year. These bikes could not be created in Asia, where volumes are everything, at all. Meet the people who make the wheels turn in AZUB.
