Availability: 8 In Stock
This is the most robust model within the Catrike line with a 34in track and wider 16in seat, the user-friendly MAX is designed for fun and adventure. The MAX features a SRAM 1x11 TT500 shifter, APEX derailleur and cassette paired with an FSA Omega 42 MegaTooth crankset for smooth and reliable shifting. Avid BB7 disc brakes with Catrike locking brake levers provide reliable and controlled stops. Padded seat mesh, clipless pedals, rear fender, hand rest, Catrikeís patented Peace Boom, flag and flag holder along with Ackerman steering all add to the value of this Made in USA Catrike. It is available in eight beautiful Catrike colors, XL booms and a Bosch-powered, electric-assist eCAT version.
The Catrike MAX is the newest addition to the Catrike Line Up! The MAX is for riders looking for a sturdy and comfortable trike with a high weight capacity. With a weight limit of 425 lbs the MAX is the most weight accommodating trike we sell, opening the doors to a whole new range of trike riders. It features a 34in track and a wider 16in seat for a roomier cockpit. No matter if you're a bigger person, or just need to carry more cargo, this is a wonderful vehicle that is comfortable, roomy, and built to last!
The wheels are also different from your average catrike! The rims are wider than the standard Catrike rims to account for a higher weight capacity. On top of this instead of the usual Schwalbe 20x1.5 inch Racer tires the MAX has Schwalbe 20x2 inch Big Apple tires. The Big Apples are an awesome road tire with built in suspension and puncture protection, which is great for this heavy duty trike.
Catrike Exit Assist Bars
The Catrike MAX comes stock with Catrikeís new Exit Assist Bars. Released alongside the MAX as a separate addon for any trike they come stock on the Catrike MAX. These Exit Assist Bars are similar to our UTCustom EZ Entry Aids, but they do feature a different curved design allowing for more room in the cockpit and a less obstructive riding experience.
The MAX features a SRAM 1x11 TT500 shifter, APEX derailleur and cassette paired with an FSA Omega 42 MegaTooth crankset for smooth and reliable shifting. Avid BB7 disc brakes with Catrike locking brake levers provide reliable and controlled stops. We have many different gearing options available. You can browse what is available in the configurator above.
Some of the currently available options for internal gearing come in both front crankset gearing and rear gearing. If you're looking to get a higher gear range, get rid of a derailleur and like the idea of being able to shift while stopped or coasting, maybe an internal gearing solution is the right choice for you.
We are building more and more electric trikes and the Catrike MAX is a great candidate for a motor. With the 1/11 gear set when a motor is added you will have more gear range in the rear than you would on a standard Catrike motor conversion.
All of our motor kits allow you to choose the level of pedal assist you want. That means that as you pedal the motor kicks in automatically providing additional power to your own pedaling efforts. We also provide a thumb-actuated throttle with our Bafang motor systems that act like the gas pedal in your car. Don't want to pedal? No worries, just push the throttle and go!
Currently we offer three different options here at Utah Trikes: the Bafang mid drive motor which ranges from 750 watts, 1000 watts, and our Ultra which is a 1000 watt motor with a 1400 watt max output. We also offer the "eCat Bosch Active Line Plus" which is a pedal assist only motor that comes as the factory motor upgrade for Catrikes. And our newest option which is the "UTcustom eCat Bosch Sport Upgrade" which takes the configuration of the regular eCat motor system and replaces the Active Line Plus with the "Bosch Performance Line Sport" a class 3 motor with a 28 mph top speed.
Boom-Mounted Bafang Middrive Motor
The Bafang Middrive comes in a 750 Watt, 1000 Watt, or Ultra. You'll want to choose the motor size based on your style of riding. We install the Bafang motor on your bottom bracket, which means it replaces the front crankset of your trike. The motor being mounted here means the motor can utilize the rear gearing ratios, making it the best for speed and climbing ability
Boom-Mounted Bosch Motor
The Bosch line of motors comes in two variants; The classic "eCat Active Line Plus Kit" which is the Catrike factory motor option, or our new "UTcustom eCat Bosch Sport Upgrade" These are both pedal assist motor that do not feature a throttle, but make up for it with their built in torque sensor. Unlike the Bafang motor systems which have a cadence pedal assist system the Bosch motors utilize a torque sensor which allows for a more natural feeling assist that adjusts to the amount of torque you apply to the pedals. The Active Line Plus is a class 1 electric motor with a top speed of 20 mph, coming equipped with a 400 watt hour battery. The Performance Line Sport is a class 3 electric motor with a top speed of 28 mph, that comes equipped with a 500 watt hour battery.
We make our own custom battery mounts to keep the weight down low and near the rear axle. This keeps the weight of the battery from affecting handling and puts the battery in an easily accessible spot of the trike. All our battery systems come with an AC charger and a two-year pro-rated warranty. We make our own mounts to put the control console, throttle, and other buttons where you need them.
