Enjoy extremes with maximum comfort
Full suspension combined with 26-inch wheels. Thatís what makes our Ti-FLY X a unique machine calling for long rides that will soon become extreme. And it doesnít really matter what you call extreme Ė it may be the distance cycled on a paved road, the roughness of terrain or the amount of endorphin that you produce during the ride. You can say from the first look that Ti FLY X is a special vehicle. It unites in itself all our innovative designs, our passion for traveling and love for off-road fun. Basically, itís a synonym for extreme cycling in all its forms.
Fitted with the newest technology gadgets
Designing the ďXĒ was a real hoot for us. We have added some cutting-edge options to the already well-known innovations that include the Syntace wide rear hub with solid axle and revolutionary titanium front suspension. Ti-FLY X can now be equipped with wide 26x3″ plus-size tires, modern 1x12 SRAM Eagle shifting with 10-50 teeth cassette and optionally with the exceptional, high-performing Shimano Steps E8000 drive that we use as the only recumbent bike manufacturer.
We define a new category
Ti-FLY X is so much different from any other trike that it simply defines a new category for itself. Itís a real SUV among trikes. Itís much more agile than clumsy fat trikes. Both the front suspension and rear shock offer a great amount of travel. The trike boasts great ride quality on tarmac as well as on rough terrain and is ready for various adjustments. Three 26ď wheels provide for a higher seat position and great riding ability through difficult sections of your route. Ti-FLY X offers an exceptional view on the road and extreme fun in rough terrain. We would also choose this trike for a long expedition throughout the continents.
The pros and cons of 3x26
The benefits of three 26-inch wheels are perhaps known to most of you. A larger diameter means less resistance when rolling and thus higher speed on flat ground, the bigger wheels roll over obstacles easier and you are much more likely to buy good-quality tires and inner tubes for them. As a matter of fact, you sport all wheels with the same diameter, which means you donít need to carry two spare tubes of different sizes and youíll also do with one spare tire if needed. And curiously, some people find three wheels of the same size more appealing. Sometimes rather uncritically.
Nevertheless, there are some drawbacks as well. Ti-FLY X is simply a big trike that is also wider compared to its smaller siblings because itís equipped with 135 mm fat bike hubs in the front. It requires a big enough space for storing and can by no means fold into our trailer designed for hauling TRIcon and Ti-FLY. It is foldable anyway and the final bundle looks surprisingly small. Itís thanks to our ďF2F-UĒ system that is used on Ti-FLY X as well. Last but not least, the sitting position on the ďXĒ is higher than on the smaller Ti-FLY 20 or 26. Hence you get a better view but also worse stability. Youíll need to lean well to a side when riding quickly through a curve. If you go at full throttle in rough terrain, youíll certainly get a wild euphoric ride but donít forget to hold on tight at any moment.
F2F U - Fold to flat ultra
In addition to folding the front part, you can also rotate the rear fork which is designed to fit neatly just below the rear of the frame. This will turn the tricycle into an incredibly small package which you can easily fit into the boot of a small car or into our carry case should you wish to take the trike for example on a plane. And the whole maneuver will take you no more than 5 minutes without the need for any tools.
Smooth adjustment of the seat
Ever since we started back in 2000, we have always thought that a bike should adapt to the rider and not the other way round. Thatís why we used an adjustable seat for our first bike, in which both the angle and the pedal distance were adjustable. With each further development stage, we introduced a more accurate adjustment, until 2013, when we reached a stage of adjusting without positions. This concept is based on a sliding sleeve, which we produce in a straight version for our tricycles and some bicycles, as well as in a curved version for recumbents.
