Sun bicycle have been building quality adult tricycles for over forty
years and has become the largest seller of adult tricycles in the
world. I personally know Jack and Ben, the owners at Sun Bicycles, and
there are no harder working guys in the bike business. Sun Bicycle’s
philosophy has always been to offer good quality products at a low price
and then stand behind the product. The Sun Atlas is Sun’s most durable
Frame: The frame on the Sun Atlus Cargo is MIG
welded together in Taiwan and has a 500 Lbs. capacity. The frame is
easily put together by bolting the rear section to the front by using
four bolts. The Atlas has a rear platform that bolts directly to the
rear frame for carrying your cargo.
Gearing: The stock set up of the Sun Atlus Cargo is a
one speed freewheel. Most factory and industrial users will add the
coaster brake kit to the trike so the trike can be stopped by pedaling a
quarter turn backwards with the pedals. Sun also offers a three speed
and five speed coaster brake kit which is a nice addition of you have
to ride up a ramp or hill.
Braking: The Sun Atlus Cargo uses a “V” style front
brake which is welded to the fork of the trike. The “V” brake come with
oversize brake pads and can stop the trike more than sufficiently. The
rear brake is a band brake which has a disc on the rear axle and a bad
that squeezes down on the disc when you wish to stop. Band brakes are
very popular in Asia and third world countries because of there
simplicity and reliability.
Seat: Big, oversize and with springs, all of our
trike tester feel the stock seat is of good quality and more than
Ride: We like the ride on the Sun trikes. The
cranks are positioned a bit farther forward and gives the Atlus Cargo a
more recreational feel and adds stability. While moving the cranks
farther forward helps stability it also make riding the trike standing a
bit more awkward. The Atlus Cargo handing is precise and predictable
and all of our testers thought Sun has offered up a good designed
Wheels: Sun offers only one wheel set for the Atlas Cargo it is a steel set of wheels with extra thick spokes.
Other Stuff: Large rear platform, front fender and reflector set are included.
Pros: The Atlas Cargo brings safety, durability and
stability to everyone who rides this well built trike. Features sealed
crank, headset and rear axle bearings, extra wide saddle with springs,
heavy duty platform The frame is Mig welded together and the
construction is solid. The paint is applied evenly and consistently and
should last for the life of the trike.
Cons: You have got to like safety yellow or you are out of luck.
