Spike is a no compromise Sub $1k Folding Trike. Don’t let the price fool you though- Spike is packed full of features that you won’t see in other brands at twice the price. Our customers spoke and we listened. Not everyone is ready to commit $3,000 to their first Trike, but everyone wants something nice and easily upgrade able.
***Please note that all Trident Trikes require a $70.00 shipping/delivery charge to the dealership which is not included in the base retail price (MSRP). This charge will be included at check-out.
Some notable features of Spike include Trident’s exclusive Aluminum Seat that adjusts for both height– 14 5/8 Inches (370mm) to 16 1/2 " (420 mm) and angle (42-52 degrees), a Folding Chro- Moly Powder Coated Frame, an Anodized Aluminum Boom, Aluminum Seat Frame with Water Bottle Cage attachment bracket, Shimano 7 Speed Deraileur/Shifter, Mechanical Disc Brakes, a Safety Flag and Alloy pedals- all STANDARD.
NEW FOR Late 2015 We have upgraded the brakes from Promax to Novich NWQ-1 Disc Brakes. They have more stopping power and are much easier to adjust.
For those who want a Spike with better performance and components, we also offer the upgraded 24 Speed Spike 2.
Spike 2 upgrades include a Truvativ Triple Crankset, Microshift Front Derailleur, Microshift Marvo LE Rear Derailleur, an 8 Speed 11-32 Cassette, and finally Avid BB5 Disc Brakes- all for the unbelievable price of $1329.00!!!

E Spike is a modified 8 Speed Spike 1- It uses an integrated system by a Japanese company called Dapu. It ifeatures a 350W Geared Hub Motor, a special Cranket with sensors, a 36V 13 AH Rack Mounted Battery with built in light, and a Digital Display. With this system you can choose between throttle only or 6 different levels of pedal assist.The 36v 13AH battery is much larger than other manufacturers use and will give you a much longer range- about 30 miles electric only and up to 75 miles using pedal assist. This entire package only adds 18.5 Lbs to a Spike! Schwalbe Big Apple 20 x 2.0 Tires , Microshift Trigger Shifter, and Avid BB5 Brakes are standard equipment. E Spikes retail for $2569.00

FOR ALL ACCESSORY KITS: Please let us know if your kit is for a model that has Big Apple Tires as we have a Longer wire for the rear fender and it also requires 2 5mm spacers to go under the Front Fenders in order to have enough clearance for the bigger Tires. If you don't tell us, your kit will not have these items.
A Spike 21 Speed Upgrade kit is also available which includes a Truvativ 52/42/30 Crankset with 165mm Crankarms, a 3 Speed Shimano Revoshifter, a Microshift Front Derailleur, Cable Housing, and a Cable Noodle to go through the boom , This kit sells for $209.00
All Spikes have Direct Steering. It is only available in Silver. Spikes come 95% assembled and adjusted. They are not “kits” like many other brands of Trikes. All you have to do is put the seat on and adjust the boom length (and in some cases adjust the chain length).
Standard Boom length on all Spikes gives you an X- Seam range of 36 1/4” – 43 3/8”
Long Booms are available at no charge (exchange for your standard boom) which will give you an X Seam Range of 36 1/4 - 47 1/4 “
In addition your standard boom can be cut down to accommodate X Seams as low as 32 ½” with the use of 152mm Crank-arms which we have available for Spike 1 . Please call or email if you need these.
