The seat is adjustable for height, to make entry and exit easy. The seat is also adjustable for angle, so you can choose the amount of recline which is the most comfortable for you. The frame folds and all wheels have quick releases, so it is easy to transport.
The Magnum is designed to take riders up to 400 lbs, so it is very strong, yet is made from 7005 aluminum alloy, so it is not a heavy machine. With its large Big Apple tires, high ground clearance, and wide range of gears, it is equally at home offroad as it is on the road.
The seat was designed by a chiropractor, and has built in suspension and ventilation, which with the balloon tires, will give you a comfortable ride. Plus the famous GreenSpeed steering geometry and the oversize brakes, make steering and braking effortless
The headrest is now is more aerodynamic as it clamps on to the seat cross brace, and has a single post.
The post is telescopic for height adjustment - with fore and aft adjustment provided by the clamp.
Greenspeed's X-Seam measuring Guide:
The alloy wheel rims on the Magnum are double walled and eyeleted with 36 stainless steel spokes for strength. The tires are Schwalbe Big Apple, 20” x 2.0”. Despite their size they are a lightweight tyre which are designed to run at 35 to 70 psi, and have very low rolling resistance. They can be used at 70 psi on smooth roads, and 35 psi off road.
Drum Braking Benefits:
They are much easier to adjust, only cable adjustment being required, instead of having to fiddle the awkward pad alignment and pad to rotor clearance. As the lining area is much larger, the brake wear is very much less, making the need for adjustments far fewer, and linings (pads/shoes) are practically everlasting.
Drums make wheel removal so much easier, by allowing push button release. While most of a drum is enclosed by the wheel, disc brake rotors and calipers are right out in the airstream - wind tunnel testing has shown the disc brakes have more drag. Then, finally the new 90 mm drums, 1st used on the Magnum, are more powerful than many disc brakes, plus the modulation is better.

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!

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.
