The Anura provides superior comfort, easy mounting and a higher seating position.
A great trike for people getting back into cycling or even those starting out!
Many physically challenged people prefer a more upright seating position than on most tadpole trikes, thus the Anura has a more upright seat, which has a 3” foam base to provide a comfortable ride with the more upright position. Plus, the frame is designed to flex, and the Scorcher tires are very supple, and can be safely run at any pressure for 40 to 100 psi. Thus the Anura gives a very good ride. The seat is also adjustable for angle. Plus the handle bars are adjustable both for width and fore and aft.
IGH means Internally Geared Hub - the gears are inside the hub instead of being exposed to road muck on the outside of the wheel. And the IGH Anura takes internal gearing one step further - discarding both the front derailleur and the rear derailleur.
This provides a much cleaner method of changing gear than pushing the chain from one sprocket to another.
The IGH achieves optimum efficiency by utilizing the Nu-Vinci continuously variable hub, the N360, plus the Sclumpf Speed Drive. This hub is an incredibly quiet and smooth hub with NO steps or clunks in changing gear as there are no gears inside the hub! It is continuously variable between the ratios of 1:0.5 to 1:1.8 (360%) and with the Schlumpf, this range is increased to 594%, or from 14 to 86 inches. Like the Schumpf, the ratio can be changed while stationary as well as under power.
The complete absence of a rear derailleur or tensioner means not only less maintenance, but a more than doubling of the standard ground clearance from 3” to 6.5”.
Greenspeed's X-Seam measuring Guide:
the Anura has TWO driving wheels with ¾ of the weight on them.
Therefore the Anura can ride up steep gravel paved hills without the rear wheels spinning.
In fact, you can even ride the Anura on snow!

The GS headrest is made to fit behind the nape of your neck, and just under the back of your helmet.
Headrest frames are made from Cromoly, the locking wedges from aluminum and the pad is a closed cell foam.
To seal the seat tube off from the elements, 'o'rings are included with your purchase.
The headrest is adjustable up and down, fore and aft to give near-perfect support.
It is best set up just a little behind the ideal position so that your eyeballs don't pop out of their sockets on those gravel sections of your ride!
Flag mounts are also fitted as you will have lost your original seat mounting

Reasons to Buy A GREENSPEED:
Once you see a Greenspeed, you will invariable find that there is NO comparison.
Steering on a Greenspeed has been so finely tuned that you only need to think about where you want to go... and you are there!
At any speed you will feel safe and in control, with plenty of road feedback to tell you what's going on.
Plus, the comfort of the ride makes the experience sheer pleasure.
At Greenspeed they do not rest on their laurels-- they are always thinking there's a better way to do things. Greenspeed has been an industry leader in the conception and development of new ideas that many others end up adopting and using as their own. All the Greenspeed team members have trike experience and bring that experience to the design table, avoiding assumptions on what a recumbent trike should be.
Some of the seats have been chiropractor-designed to provide the rider with maximum bodily support-- they're not just a bunch of tubes thrown together at some angle because they look good that way! (Which they do as well.)
The tubes are then covered with a UV-resistant nylon mesh and laced with absorbent elastic cord, so chosen and designed to absorb most of the road shock in order to help cushion you from the wear-and-tear of long miles or to help get you to work in comfort.
Their Delrin toothed chain guide pulley is widely known and often supplied on other manufacturers' recumbents because of its quiet and proficient operation. The tubing used to guide the chain is custom-made, and is not the off-the-shelf water pipe regularly used by others. The chain to the rear wheel is linked gingerly and with minimum deviations to keep it efficient.
Greenspeed not only makes world-class trikes, they have parts specifically made for them that are a cut above the rest.
Greenspeed is not in the habit of going by external appearances but we do have to admit it-- their trikes look good!
They are stylish, attractive and keep their good looks.
The range of color options is breath-taking and the exceptional quality of its paintwork has brought Greenspeed compliments from all over the world.
Greenspeed has been making and improving trikes longer than anybody in the trike industry!!!
They carefully fashion, make or choose each component that goes into a trike-- considering, first, its long-term reliability and quality, then value for money. As Greenspeed is consistently improving their trikes, specifications may change without notice - so if you have a specification question - just call us at 201-775-4274.
