    Trident Spike Trike is a no compromise Sub $1k Folding Trike. Don’t let the price fool you though- Spike is packed full of features that you won’t see in other brands at twice the price. Our customers spoke and we listened. Not everyone is ready to commit $3,000 to their first Trike, but everyone wants something nice and easily upgradeable.

    Some notable features of Spike include Trident’s exclusive Aluminum Seat that adjusts for both height– 14 5/8 Inches (370mm) to 16 1/2 " (420 mm) and angle (42-52 degrees), a Folding Chro- Moly Powder Coated Frame, an Anodized Aluminum Boom, Aluminum Seat Frame with Water Bottle Cage attachment bracket, Shimano 7 Speed Deraileur/Shifter, Mechanical Disc Brakes, a Safety Flag and Alloy pedals- all STANDARD.

    For those who want a Spike with better performance and components, we also offer the upgraded 24 Speed Spike 2.

    Trident Spike 2 upgrades include a Truvativ Triple Crankset, Microshift Front Derailleur, Microshift Marvo LE Rear Derailleur, an 8 Speed 11-32 Cassette, and finally Avid BB5 Disc Brakes- all for the unbelievable price of $1299.00!!!

    Trident Spike 360 is our newest Spike model for those who would rather not have a derailleur system. It features the Nuvinci N360 system as well as Schwalbe Big Apple Tires and Avid BB5 Brakes . Spike 360 retails for $1499

    Trident E Spike is a modified Spike 1- It uses an integrated system by a Japanese company called Dapu. It features a 350W Geared Hub Motor, a special Crank with sensors, a 36V 13 AH Rack Mounted Battery with built in light, and a Digital Display. With this system you can choose between throttle only or 6 different levels of pedal assist. The 36v 13AH battery is much larger than other manufacturers use and will give you a much longer range- about 30 miles electric only and up to 75 miles using pedal assist. This entire package only adds 18.5 Lbs to a Spike!

    An accessory kit with a full set of 3 fenders and a sturdy rear rack is available for $149.00

    A Deluxe Accessory Kit which includes 3 Fenders , Rear Rack, Accessory Mount, Rear Light and Mirror is available for $179.00

    A Spike 21 Speed Upgrade kit is also available which includes a Truvativ 52/42/30 Crankset with 165mm Crankarms, a 3 Speed Shimano Revoshifter, a Microshift Front Derailleur, Cable Housing, and a Cable Noodle to go through the boom , This kit sells for $209.00

    All Spikes have Direct Steering. It is only available in Silver. Spikes come 95% assembled and adjusted. They are not “kits” like many other brands of Trikes. All you have to do is put the seat on and adjust the boom length (and in some cases adjust the chain length).

    Standard Boom length on all Spikes gives you an X- Seam range of 36 1/4” – 43 3/8”
    Long Booms are available at no charge (exchange for your standard boom) which will give you an X Seam Range of 36 1/4 - 47 1/4 “

    In addition your standard boom can be cut down to accommodate X Seams as low as 32 ½” with the use of 152mm Crankarms which we have available for Spike 1 . Please call or email if you need these.

    Trident Spike, Posted on November 13, 2015

    The Trident Spike premiered in 2010, and with some changes over time, it is truly a contender for being the best entry level trike around. Trident is big on value, and you will be surprised how much you get for your money. This trike will get you off the couch enjoying the sun and fresh air while you reconnect with nature because Spike is perfect for parks and trails. Or perhaps the easy pedaling and direct steering will prompt you to get to know your neighbors and local businesses again. Everyone will want to know about your trike; it happens to all trike owners. There are now 4 versions of the Spike to choose from.
    Frame: The Spike frame is made out of Chro-Moly steel, TIG welded together with a telescoping aluminum boom. It is really amazing that Trident was able to offer so much value in the Spike frame. The welds are precise and consistent on the Spike and better than can be expected, on a trike in this entry level price range. Other entry level trikes on the market use bushing in their front end, not Trident They use actual bicycle headsets which are much better. The headsets make the steering much lighter in feel and can be adjusted where trikes with bushings, will get a looser feel with age. The Trident Spike can be folded very easily by removing the seat with the two quick release levers and then using the quick release lever on the frame. I will have to say that the Trident Spike folds easier than some trikes costing almost triple the price. The hinge looked to be well made and Trident gives the trike a 275 l weight capacity. Trident also makes an extra long boom for the Spike .
    Paint: You can not see your reflection in the paint but the paint is more than adequate. The paint is a powder coat that is applied generously and should last the life of the trike.
    Drivetrain: The drivetrains are what really make most of the Trident Spike models different than the next.
    Spike 1 – 7 speed Shimano Tourney rear derailleur with a Shimano Revo grip type shifter.
    Spike 2 – Upgrades include a Truvativ Triple Crankset, Microshift Front Derailleur, Microshift Marvo LE Rear Derailleur, an 8 Speed 11-32 Cassette, and finally Avid BB5 Disc Brakes
    Spike 360 For those who would rather not have a derailleur system. The Spike 360 features the Nuvinci N360 system infinitely adjustable rear hub which has a range of 360 degrees as well as Schwalbe Big Apple Tires and Avid BB5 Brakes.
    E Spike – is a modified 8 Speed, Spike 1- It uses an integrated system by a Japanese company called Dapu. It features a 350W Geared Hub Motor, a special Crank with sensors, a 36V 13 AH rack mounted battery with built in light, and a digital display. With this system, you can choose between throttle only or 6 different levels of pedal assist. The 36v 13AH battery is much larger than other manufacturers use and will give you a much longer range- about 30 miles electric only and up to 75 miles using pedal assist. This entire package only adds 18.5 lbs to a Spike! Schwalbe Big Apple 20 x 2.0 Tires , Microshift Trigger Shifter, and Avid BB5 Brakes are standard equipment.
    Brakes: Trident Spike 1, uses disc brakes made by Promax. The Promax brakes stop well enough. All other Trident Spikes get upgraded brakes to the Avid BB5. The Avid BB5 are a nice step up from the Promax brakes. The Avid brakes are my favorite non hydraulic disc brakes. They just work so well, are very easy to adjust and you can get replacement brake pads at just about any bike shop. The brake levers have a parking lock where there is a button on the brake lever that you can push and lock the brakes in the on position.
    Seat: The seat on the Trident Spike is very adjustable. The seat height can be adjusted from 14 5/8 to 16 ½ inches. This makes the seat on the Trident Spike not only one of the most adjustable, but one of the trikes that has the highest seat heights on the market as well. The seat angle can easily be adjusted with one quick release lever from 42 – 52 degrees. Tridents new seat frame is made of aluminum and much nicer than there older version that was made out of steel. The new aluminum seat frame received some new shaping and fit my lower back and bottom well. The seat fabric is a padded breathable fabric that is well made. The seat fabric has a reflective strip across the top and a nice zipper pocket. The seat is a bit wider and taller than most other trike brand seats, which is a good thing. The Trident Spike seat width measured 16 inches and the height measured 22 inches. Most people should have no problem getting in and out of the Spike. Even if the seat is in it lowest position it is still higher than a lot of other trikes on the market.
    Ride: Entry level riders fear neck strain of the layback recumbent trikes, but there are no worries with Trident Spike’s upright seating position. Trident uses direct steering on the Spike and indirect steering in there Stowaway and Transport, which are their two next trikes up in quality and features. I am a bit more of a fan of the indirect steering but the direct steering got me to where I was going with no problem. I understand why Trident uses direct steering on the Spike, it is just simpler and easier to manufacture which keeps their cost down. The Trident Spike frame did a fine job at soaking up road shock. I had the opportunity to not only ride the trike on the streets and paths by my home but also on some crushed limestone paths as well.
    Accessories: Trident mudguards, neck rest, rear rack are all quality pieces, pass on the rear light and mirror, you can do better.
    In Conclusion: Trident has produced a nice trike with a lot of features that you would not expect in such a low price range.
    Pros: Low cost, the trike is easy to fold, and the trike is easy to get on and off of. The seat has a nice shape and size. The trike is fairly light at 38 lbs.
    Cons: I thought the handling could be improved but it still got me to where I was going, fine. The seat mesh fabric is comfortable but a bit warmer than others.

    <p>I love my Trident Spike, It make me feel like a kid again. When I am on my trike I forget about all the stresses in life and just enjoy the day. Trikes are so easy to ride and steer anyone can do it. I have people ask me to stop all the time because they want to know about my trike. I ask them if they would like to try it out and they are apprehensive at first but after I assure them everything will be fine they give it a go. The outcome is always the same, wow that is comfortable and wow that was easier than easier than I thought.</p><p>A couple of thing worth mentioning on my Spike that was important to me was that it had a comfortable seat and the seat was high enough that I could get in and out of the trike without difficulty. The Spike seat is both adjustable in height and adjustable in angle. The other thing that was very important to me was that the trike folded. I spend winter in Florida so I can just fold my trike up and pack it in my Lexus RS for it's trip to Florida. Everything seams to work fine on my trike, brakes, gears and so on, the ride is comfortable and the workman ship is good. The Spike is everything I wanted in a trike, the only thing I would have like to see Trident do differently is to try to make it lighter.</p>

    <p>I purchased the Trident Spike seven speed six months ago. The trike is a good trike but not perfect, The Spike has a lower price than any other trike so I guess it is what it is. On paper the Spike is the best valued tike on the market at a low price. The only other trike worth mentioning is the Terratrike Rover at the same price. The Spike has and adjustable height seat where the Rove did not and the Spike folds in half where the Rover does not fold. Riding both trike the Spike was a bit softer and that is fine for me being I only way 150 Lbs. The Rover has a weight rating of up to 400 Lbs which is very heavy duty. I like the handling better on the Rover but the Spike won out because of the folding frame and adjustable seat height. I also like that the Spike’s boom was independently adjustable from the frame. I also like that I can buy an upgrade kit to make the Spike a twenty one speed trike in the future.</p>
