Tri-1
Here at Pashley we have a hard-earned reputation for crafting the very best tricycles, that has endured for over eighty years, and we constantly strive to build on this reputation with ongoing innovation.
 
The Tri-1 is a marriage of our classic three-wheeled design with the very best modern componentry. The ‘fixed gear’ model is designed for simple, worry-free riding. Its short 150mm cranks provide a more natural pedalling action for shorter riders or those with restricted leg movement. The chrome riser handlebars put you in an upright position for the best visibility and comfort and a fully-enclosed chaincase protects you from the moving chain. 
 
It also features a folding frame for easy transportation and storage. Add to this the luxury of a sprung gel saddle and the security of pedals with toe-clips and straps, you have the perfect companion offering an unrivalled sense of stability and comfort that only a tricycle can provide.
 
 
COVID-19 Update: Unfortunately, the build lead times at our factory in Stratford-upon-Avon have increased considerably. For further information please see our lead times page.

Gears: Fixed | RRP (UK): £805 (folding frame)

  1. Robust tricycle frame with stable and upright riding position, with folding frame: 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. Its folding frame is a useful feature to reduce overall length where storage or transport space is at a premium (approximate dimensions when folded: W=80cm, L=100cm, H= 68cm (17" frame) or 63cm (15" frame), with saddle removed). The frame is hand-built with an attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
  2. 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!
  3. Supportive steering stop: tricycles are sensitive to large steering angles, so this simple device avoids over-rotation of the front fork, increasing stability.
  4. Low maintenance front hub brake: enclosed and sealed from all weathers, hub brakes  are long-lasting and robust and provide excellent stopping power come rain or shine.
  5. Non-slip pedals with toe clips and straps: to keep feet securely in place when pedalling, helping to transfer your pedal-power more efficiently.
  6. Tyres with puncture protection: With a tyre tread profile that offers good grip and quiet running. Also featuring  an effective puncture protection belt made of natural rubber.
  7. High-comfort padded saddle: with elastomer springs to help cushion impacts.
  8. Quick-release seatpost: Allows saddle height to be adjusted and secured with ease and without the need for tools.
  9. Short 150mm cranks: Shortened cranks (standard cranks are 170mm) give a more natural pedalling action for shorter riders or those with restricted leg movement. Appropriately, the set comes with a smaller chainwheel, so it also lowers the gear range. Full-length cranks can be fitted at a later date if necessary.
  10. Fully-enclosed protective chain case: protects you from greasy oil marks and helps to reduce wear on the sheltered chain and components from grit and water.
  11. Single, low fixed gear where cycling stability is more important than top speed: An effective gear system where ease of pedalling is more important than speed, with the gear range lowered by a third.
