Catrike was created in 2000 by Paulo Camasmie, a Brazilian Mechanical Engineer.
Paulo dreamed of designing, engineering and manufacturing new quality products to improve people's lives. Catrike is the fruit of that vision. The desire and pursuit of building the best possible recumbent trike.
Catrike has received 6 awards for the "Trike of the Year" by the readers of Bent Rider Online. Catrike has also been elected in 2008 the Manufacturer of the Year under 100 employees by the Manufacturer Association of Central Florida, and in 2009 the Manufacturer of the Year under 125 employees by the Manufacturers Association of Florida.
At Catrike, the focus is concentrated on product development, engineering and process design. The result are great products that look fantastic, work beautifully and flawlessly, require very low maintenance, are user friendly, and sure to provide many years of fun and pleasure at an affordable price. As a consequence of that, Catrike is making over 2,300 trikes each year and growing steadily.
Catrike's passion for design & engineering is reflected in our product, which speaks for itself. A good example is the breakthrough design of the Catrike Space Frame, fully triangulated and an impressive relation of strength, stiffness and weight, and its "magic carpet" like ride & handling.
