For spring 2021, TerraTrike is offering its Gran Tourismo Sport, or GTS, to the growing category of all-road endurance cycling. Quick enough to jump into a fast group ride but comfortable enough for long hours in the saddle.
The GTS offers a 7000 series alloy frame with redesigned wishbone seat stays and duplex chain stays in the rear end to maximize tracking and power transfer. Upfront, a larger-diameter boom resists twisting under high-power efforts for a “snappy and efficient driveline with razor-sharp tracking and handling.”
“This new GTS is second only to our all-out performance trike when it comes to pure speed,” said TerraTrike sales and marketing director Marshall Randall. “But what really sets it apart is the level of comfort you get here. In the past you would have had to compromise on comfort, handling or ride quality to get this much free speed out of a trike, but what our designers have accomplished with the GTS is truly special—enough speed to satisfy anything short of an hour-record attempt and enough comfort to make it all the way through RagBrai with a big smile which, honestly, is the only way to do it.”
TerraTrike’s 2021 GTS comes equipped with a Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain (22 gears total) and Shimano Deore hydraulic disk brakes. The adjustable sport-touring seat incorporates a mesh air channel and adjustable upper back section for a customizable ride. GTS is available in two colors, Molten Red and Fog Gray.
