Trident Terrain Posted on March 22, 2016

The Trident Terrain will probably turn more heads than any other

trike in the market. My son Nathan, who is 21 years old and is studying

mechanical engineering in college, got to be my riding partner for the

day. We were very excited to try both the Trident Terrain and the Sun

Seeker Fat Tad, back to back. The trikes are both Fat tire trikes, but

that is where the similarities end. Trident makes the Terrain in two

wheel sizes: 20” Fat and 26” Fat. We tested the 26” wheel version. The

Sun Seeker Fat Tad only comes with 20” Fat tires. Now, these trikes

really are quite different. Besides wheel size, the Sun Seeker comes

with front and rear suspension and the frame is nonfolding. During my

ride with Nathan, we had the opportunity switched trikes back and forth a

number of times. I was excited to have him on the ride and see what he

thought of the Trident Terrain vs the Sun Seeker Fat Tad. Trident was

smart in the design of the Terrain. Most of design was borrowed from

Trident’s other trike models. The frame is a modified Spike frame with a

longer rear end to accommodate the 26” Fat tire. The handlebars are

borrowed from the Trident Titan. Trident is known as a good quality

trike at a low price. I think they really do a good job at delivering

just that. Trident has their trike manufactured in China. Most everyone

else manufactures in Taiwan, Germany, England or the USA. The people at

Trident trikes are smart, they are keeping there overhead super low.

Frame: The Terrain has a steel frame with a telescoping

aluminum boom. The TIG welds are precise and consistent on the Terrain

and better than you would expected on a trike in this price range.

Trident, uses direct steering on the Terrain which is simple and works

just fine on this type of trike. The Trident Terrain can be folded very

easily by removing the seat with the two quick release levers and then

using the quick release lever on the hinge to fold the trike. The rear

of the frame folds over the top of the front part of the frame. The

Terrain uses more of a traditional fold rather than a flat fold. The

advantage of a traditional fold, is that you do not have to remove your

rack bag or pannier to fold the trike. I will have to say that the

Trident Terrain folds easier than some trikes costing almost triple the

price. The hinge looked to be well made and Trident gives the trike a

275 lbs weight capacity. Trident also makes an extra long boom for the

Terrain.

Paint: The paint is a powder coat that is applied

generously and should last the life of the trike. The paint was smooth

and had a nice shine. Personally I think the green is awesome and just

fits this aggressive looking trike perfectly.

Drivetrain: The drivetrain is a basic entry level

Shimano seven speed coupled with a Shimano twist type shifter. The

Crankset is an alloy Crank with a 32 tooth Chain Ring. Trident offers an

upgrade kit where the Terrain can be upgraded to a 21 speed.

Brakes: Trident chose the Avid BB5 mechanical disc brake system on the

Terrain and coupled them with locking alloy brake levers. I have no

issue with the mechanical brakes that Avid offers; they are simple,

reliable and easy to adjust.

Seat: The seat on the Trident Terrain is very

adjustable. The seat height can be adjusted from 20 7/8 to 22 7/8

inches. The seat angle can easily be adjusted with one quick release

lever from 38 – 45 degrees. Trident’s new seat frame is made of aluminum

and much nicer than their 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 padded, breathable and 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 Terrain seat width

measured 16 inches and the height measured 22 inches.

Ride: Both Nathan and I felt that the Trident Terrain

was just a blast to ride. The super large fat tires just ate up the

bumps and rolled over everything in our path. With the Fat tires the

ride became very comfortable. When I fist heard that Trident was going

to do a trike with 26” Fat tires I thought there would be no way that

thing would turn well. With such large tires I thought that the tire

would be rubbing on the seat all the time when turning, but that just

did not happen. I was very impressed in how tight a circle you could

turn on the Terrain. I also thought that the Fat tires would take a lot

more energy to turn the trike and I was shocked that the steering had a

much lighter feel than I expected. We both preferred the seat at it

lowest position and would have even preferred it a bit lower in

relationship to the crank. This is just a personal adjustment and really

just a bit different than most other trikes I ride. The Terrain crank

is a bit lower in relationship to the seat than other trikes which is

neither good or bad just different. Some people that have issues with

say their feet going numb will prefer the lower crank to seat. A slight

negative to the lower crank to seat is it will cost you a little bit of

power. When we returned from our ride we had some other people ride the

Terrain as well to get some more opinions. Everyone said the trike felt

flexy and soft. I do believe there is a number of factors contributing

to this feel. First are the tires at 10 Psi. The other trikers who rode

the Terrain keep there tire between 50 Psi and 100 Psi which will change

the ride dramatically. Second is the frame is longer to compensate for

the 26” fat tire. Third there did seem to be some extra movement between

the bottom seat quick release and the frame. Add all three things

together contributr to the trike feeling a bit flexy. But, that is ok.

Accessories: Trident’s neck rest is very well made and I like the extra large pad. Trident’s rear rack is well made and a quality piece.

In Conclusion: You will not find a trike that will turn

more heads than the Terrain. Simply, the Terrain is not very efficient

but a real blast to ride.

Pros: A quality Fat trike that folds and a very reasonable price. Maximum coolness.

Cons: Big Fat tires with knobs take more energy to

pedal. You will never win any races on this trike. Currently no

mudguards are available.

My Dirt Trike

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
<p>I just purchased my Trident Terrain with the 26" wheel for riding trails through the woods and dirt roads by my home. My wife thought I was crazy for wanting a second trike just for riding dirt. The fat tires are the way to go if you want to ride dirt roads and trails through the woods. I run my tire at 10 PSI and it is just perfect for rolling over small rocks and tree root. I would highly recommend the 26" wheels over the 20" wheels because the bigger wheels will roll over rocks and bumps better than the smaller wheel version. The fat tire go through mud better than my old mountain bike and I do not have to worry about slipping and wiping out on a trike. I did make one upgrade which is the twenty-one speed kit so I can have both a lower and higher gear range. There is no rear fender available from Trident so I manufactured my own rear fender. The rear fender is important for spring riding in Michigan because the dirt roads are wet an muddy. The seat is comfortable and fit my back and butt well enough. What I really liked was the price, my road trike is three times the price of the Terrain so the Terrain looks like a bargain. I am happy that Trident kept the cost down which makes me feel better because I love going out and playing in the dirt with my trike.</p>
