The new 2017 Magnum trike builds on our very successful Magnum which was launched in 2012, and has been our best seller since then. The 2017 Magnum comes in two sizes, the SD which is the same size as the original Magnum, and the XL, which is the largest production trike in the world, built to accommodate riders up to 7 foot in height and weighing up to 450 lbs.
It retains the unique features of the earlier Magnum which made it so popular, the seat height and angle adjustment, plus the press-button quick release on the front wheels, plus the on road and off road capabilities. However, to strengthen the frame over the earlier Magnum, we are using a rectangular section main tube, 1st used on the Anura introduced in 2006, and recently on the GT20, introduced in 2016.
This tubing is both stronger and lighter than the round tubing used on the original Magnum, plus it allows quick and easy adjustment of the boom for leg length without having to realign the cranks each time, and positively prevents the cranks from twisting under sudden acceleration.
And rather than the “Ved” cross member of the early Magnums, the SD/XL cross member is curved like the GT20, to allow the riders to stand closer to the seat, for easier entry and exit.
