General information

Steintrikes are light, agile tricycles, with a unique modular design that allows a wide variety of combinations of front and rear sections - with or without suspension and with many different wheel sizes in front and rear.

The modular Steintrike design concept also makes it possible to split the trike into separate sections for transport so that it will fit into a very small carrier such as a large tennis bag.

An ergonomic meshback seat, with built in lumbar support and back rest angle adjustable between 30° and 45° comes standard. Fiberglass hardshell seats are also available. The glass fiber seat is approximately 1.5 pounds lighter and additionally reduces the turning circle of the Steintrike from about 14 feet to about 11 feet. Carbon fiber seats are also now available for even further weight reduction.

Mounting points for an optional rear disk brake and dynamo are standard.

Steintrikes can be reduced in size and folded flat for transport in a car in about 5 minutes through the following procedure:
The disk braked front wheels can be removed without having to touch the brake by unscrewing a bolt, removing the axle and dropping the front wheel straight down. The seat is laid back by loosening the high-grade steel clamps that hold it in place by one turn. Finally, the main bolt behind the seat is loosened by two turns, and the entire tail is rotated by 90° so that it lays flat.

The width and inclination of the handle bars is adjustable by means of a pair of clamps, and they can also be quickly folded flat for transport.

Each model is available as a complete trike or as a frameset.

Mad Max Evo 4

Mad Max Evo 4 is the fourth generation of Steintrikes original fully suspended all purpose trike that has seen several improvements, including decreased weight and re-designed front swingarm and kingpin design. Each of the front two wheels are fitted with double wishbone supension . The frame structure of the front axle unit provides for maximum rigidity with the least amount of weight. The shock struts are installed between the wishbones which makes possible long spring travel and the possibility of tuning the firmness of the ride to your preference.

As is the case for all of the Steintrikes, every effort was made to keep the frontal area as small as possible so that the trike achieves as high a top speed as possible. With this in mind, the Mad Max uses the more aero 16 inch (349mm) front wheels, and a seat height of 10.5 inches (27 cm) while maintaining frame to ground clearance at nearly 6 inches (15 cm).

  • Wheels: 16 inch front (349 mm), 20 inch rear (406 mm)

Position yourself so that the small of your back is all the way against the wall and your shoe soles are perpendicular to the ground. If that is too uncomfortable, place a book or two behind you. Then measure from the wall (or book) to the sole of your shoes.
