Steintrike Explorer comes with 75 mm suspension travel on all three wheels, based on the Mungo and Mad Max proven concept with the low seat height of 28 cm, a narrow track width of 75 cm and an efficient bottom bracket height of 20-24 cm (above the seat), a small cross section and extremely good coasting that beats every unsuspended trike.
Even with narrow racing tires it is possible to negotiate small curbs at full speed.
For luggage, a light lowrider rack can be fitted, that can carry 2 big panniers of around 60 litres capacity. The luggage is, as on other Steintrikes, placed far forward so the trike can attain high speed in turns when fully loaded.
The Explorer also can be ordered in different configurations like all our other products.
The rear wheel size is always 26 inches, with 3 front wheel variants: Explorer 16", 18" or 20" front wheels. Keep in mind that you'll have more tire options with 20" than with 18" wheels.
The rear shock can be adjusted so the frames attitude and steering stays the same.
Trike comes with Mesh/Sling Seat; HardShell seat shown is additional.
