Performance and comfort; recumbent riders generally experience no neck, shoulder, or back pain that is common to cyclists. Your weight is comfortably distributed throughout your back and the seat. Conventional bikes produce a lot of pressure on your hands, arms, and shoulders. Anyone can ride a Catrike. There are no balance issues, they are lightweight, low to the ground, and have a small frontal area so they are very aerodynamic and efficient. It is a different cycling experience; Catrikes have a fun go-cart feel and can be very fast.
