Picador

Picador

The Picador is our unique take on the tricycle, a machine that allows you to enjoy all the joys of cycling with the sort of security that only three wheels can provide. Since first introducing this model in the 1960s, we have constantly innovated upon this time-honoured design to make the Picador a truly versatile tricycle for all aspects of your life.

For short hops around town, the padded and sprung saddle keeps you upright and comfortable no matter what the road conditions, whilst the large rear basket is perfect for carrying your shopping with ease. The Picador is just as at home in the countryside, where full mudguards keep you clean and dry and the powerful dual hub and calliper braking system gives you an unbeatable sense of reliability and safety whatever the weather. All this allows you to enjoy all the pleasures of cycling with the security of a hand-built three-wheeled design, making the Picador a truly special all-rounder that will never let you down.

Gears: 3 Speed | SRP: £745

  1. Traditional tricycle frame with stable and upright riding position: an easy to mount/dismount frame with comfortable upright riding position that allows you a good view of other road users and the scenery, and the added bonus of encouraging a healthy posture. The frame is hand-built with an attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
  2. Classic 3 speed tricycle hub gears: The 3 speed hub-gear system provides both easy shifting low range gears and ease of maintenance. The gears can be changed whilst stationary which allows for the perfect getaway from junctions.
  3. Secure parking brake: with an easily accessible activation button on the brake lever, it keeps the tricycle stationary when parked so you don't need to worry about it rolling away!
  4. Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear, and pedal reflectors all help to keep you safer on the road at night.
  5. Effective front double-braking with hub and caliper combination: this system uses an easily adjusted caliper side-pull brake and a fully enclosed all-weather hub brake which act together to give the stopping power and security that a tricycle needs.
  6. Light-weight, durable mudguards: protect you from mud and water splashes, providing all-weather practicality.
  7. Large rear wire tricycle basket: A capacious rear wire basket with a hinged top which can be locked with a small padlock. This basket is ideal for shopping, gardening tools, or recycling trips.
  8. High-comfort padded saddle: with elastomer springs to help cushion impacts.
  9. Quick-release seatpost: Allows saddle height to be adjusted and secured with ease and without the need for tools.
  10. Protective chainguard: a streamlined chainguard that protects you from greasy oil marks, and helps prevent your attire from catching in the chain.
