is fitted with the award winning Casarva Brute Shaft Drive trike conversion kit with Independent Rear Suspension. Slotted into the drive line is a mechanical reverse gearbox and the trike features Casarva stainless steel up and over exhausts, 5 spoke alloys painted to match the front and Casarva mirror polished stainless parallel bull bars.
What is Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) on a trike?
Casarva IRS (independent Rear Suspension) trikes handle better and and are more comfortable to ride than those with a solid axles. The tyres stay planted in the road surface giving you maximum control if the road gets a little tricky because each side has its own suspension system which are connected by an anti-roll bar made in spring steel. This assists the shock absorbers in keeping the rear end planted, reduces rider shock and assists with steering.
The drive line irrespective of being chain, belt or shaft (like this Casarva Goldwing trike), has a differential which allows the wheels to turn independently of each other via half shafts which have been tailor made to each trike and there are options on the track width and wheelbase length to make sure that the trike is set up to be the best it can be. Tyres and wheel size are selected to works best with each trike – one size definitively does not fit all not fit all.
