Sizing & Measurements
X-Seam: The Recumbent Trike Fitting Measurement
When purchasing a trike, we use a sizing measurement called an X-Seam. This measurement helps us to determine which size will best fit you. Here is how we you determine your X-Seam size.
Wear shoes you would typically use for riding. Sit very tight against the bottom of the board, lean back, and stretch your legs out straight with the soles of your shoes perpendicular to the floor. Measure the distance in inches from the front of board to the bottom of your shoe. This is an important measurement so have an assistant help you get an accurate number. See illustration A as an example. And if you have trouble, call us at 916-619-1003 and we would be more than happy to help.
