Second tadpoleA tadpole is a trike with two wheels at front and one at rear. that came out of Catrike workshops, Speed ​came to the catalog in 2002. It benefits from the experience of the Road and really is oriented to performance. Its small wheels, its modest weight and stiffness of the frame make it a demonic machine to ride the descents or kilometers on the flat.

He is joined in the sport range by the 700, compared to him, Speed ​is a bit slower but more compact and funny, it would accelerate better. The 16-inch front wheels, like the 700, will slow on degraded road but provide a very good aerodynamics.
