Steintrikes have been in existence since the year
2000. Steintrikes have built the Roadshark as their first tricycle
Since the year 2004 we have had a close cooperation
with Thomas Seide and his company BIKE
REVOLUTION. After our first public apearrance at SPEZI 2004, supported by
BIKE REVOLUTION, we developed a partnership relation. Since then, BIKE REVOLUTION
has been our distributor for EU and co-designer. Our cooperation has resulted
in Steintrikes becoming a recognized brand in Europe. Results of this cooperation
have been new models like Nomad Sport, MadMax, Speedy and Speedster, further
final refinement of our Alien, Magnum, Nomad and our latest top line products
like MadMax evo 2, Mungo and the Thunderstorm velomobile.
In addition, Bike Revolution has been the redesigner
and initiator of getting the Licence to produce the Leitra Avancee.
Now the Leitra Avancee is being manufactured by Steintrikes.
Our frames are made from a raw material we ourselves
have chosen. It's a cold drawn precision seamless tubing with a
wall only 1mm thick. We use the same material for all the frame
parts, and we hand build our frames. We measure, clean, cut and
weld every single piece to make a frame. It's really hand made in
the best meaning of the term. But it's not just that. We used someone
else's invention to make it simpler. Some years ago, in the electronics
industry, someone started building "modules" and started
plugging them onto the motherboard, and we have done that with our
frames. We made a design with a specific wheelbase and track, tested
it, refined the steering design and we got ourselves an excellent
trike model. It had a flaw: it wasn't good for everyone all the
time. So, we took the same front end, kept the wheelbase and changed
its rear end, and we got the first modular trike. Then came the
others. Today, you can choose small or big wheel, hard tail or suspended;
it's all up to your preference. And even better, if you decide you
want a change for the Summer or Winter, for touring or racing, you
can "pimp your ride"... And it doesn't require a surgery
on an open wallet...
Even though different, our frames are all the same
when it comes to quality, handling and weight. They are good, reliable
and light. Have a look.
