TerraTrike owner and KMX Karts distributor, WizWheelz, has acquired Australian trike brand Greenspeed in a bid to bring trikes into the cycling mainstream.
Founded in 1990 by the late Ian Sims, Greenspeed is known throughout the industry for its pioneering use of the 20-inch rear wheel and was the first to offer a tandem recumbent trike and cross-over linkage steering.
“Greenspeed is really the original trike brand,” said WizWheelz Managing Director Mark Crews. “Its late founder, Ian Sims, developed the vision of a mainstream pedal powered machine that could be ‘greener’ than automobiles without losing fun and ‘speed’.
“Ian liked to prove what was possible, and I hope we can honour that by giving Greenspeed plenty of space to grow with its own identity.”
Greenspeed’s GT20 RS Suspension trike, Delta trike and Aero race trike models will complement WizWheez’s offerings of its TerraTrike and KMX Karts brands.
Crews continued: “We’ve had shops knocking on our door at WizWheelz because we offer great products, support and margins for our dealer network. We take care of our dealers, so they can take care of our customers, and bringing Greenspeed gives us the opportunity to bring this philosophy to more shops.”
WhizWheelz is currently showcasing the Greenspeed brand on booth 348 at CABDA Midwest in Chicago, spanning 12-13th February.
