Enjoy the relaxed pace of recumbent riding on the beautifully designed ICE Sprint X recumbent tricycle. The practical cousin to the VTX, the Sprint X is likely to be the fastest foldable trike available. Highly customisable with suspension, seating and accessories to create the ultimate road tourer or commuter.
ICE’s heritage of innovation and development combine to produce a trike that is beautifully engineered, rides like a dream and offers practical features for everyday use.
Optimised ICE frame featuring Compact Flat Twist Fold, No Brake Steer, Rider Positioning System and wide-range gearing.
The Sprint X is a performance trike with the benefit of a fold. The Compact Flat Twist Fold is based around a lightweight heat-treated aluminium hinge on the main frame. Simply remove the seat, fold the handlebars flat, and undo the quick release lever to fold the frame. As the frame folds, the rear wheel pivots to fit flat between the front wheels. The CFT fold allows the trike to be folded in under 30 seconds and works with all ICE accessories.
Easy access swept cruciforms. Allowing you to get your feet further under you for a more stable entry and exit of the trike, this also creates improved heel clearance for smaller riders.
Newly designed handlebars allow for a wider roomier cockpit, and a new handlebar clamping system with super secure indexed clamps to ensure the handlebars easily remain fixed in their optimum position for you.
Air Pro hard-shell seat with its Rider Positioning System allows you to tailor the trike to you. The ICE Air-Pro Carbon seats are handmade and provide exceptional stiffness with minimal weight, weighing in at 1.1kg. The Air Pro seat is available in two materials and two sizes to suit different riders and different budgets. It is finished with a dual density foam core fabric cover.
Fitted with indirect steering for natural, intuitive handling from the first ride. As pace increases handling remains controlled, predictable and light, even when taking tight corners. The steering system dissipates vibrations and shock before they reach your hands to give a comfortable and safe feel, even at high speed.
ICE’s own No Brake Steer system ensures that the speed of each wheel and the tracking of the trike are completely independent, so steering is not affected by braking at speed, uneven braking or cornering.

Adapt and Customise
All ICE trikes are available with a wide range of options to fit the trike to you and your body. From seat brackets to adjust the leg length and seat height to the Helping Handles to assist you in and out of the seat, your ICE trike will be the perfect fit for you.
All folding ICE Trikes can be fitted with the Shimano STEPS E-Assist System. Beautifully integrated, available in two models:
- E6000 – Powerful 250w electric motor, 50Nm torque, 418 Wh battery, optional automatic rear hub gear shifting.
- E8000 – Powerful 250w electric motor, 70Nm torque, 504 Wh battery, Bluetooth connectivity, optional XT Di2 electronic gear shifting.
GRP Air Pro seat
The glass reinforced plastic (GRP) version of the Air Pro seat is the lower cost option which is fitted as standard on the Sprint X and VTX and is available as an upgrade on all Sprints. It is made from a mat of short strands of glass fibre which are held together by an epoxy resin. It is very tough and durable with a gloss black finish.
Carbon Air Pro seat
The Carbon fibre version of the Air Pro seat is around 0.5kg lighter than the same size seat in GRP. It is made from layers of carbon fibre woven sheet, with the fibres orientated for maximum strength in specific areas of the seat. The fibres are bonded together with epoxy resin making it lighter and stronger than the GRP version of the seat. But that does come with an increased price tag. It has the classic carbon fibre chequerboard finish.
