Tadpole, two-front-one-rear, reverse trikes – call ’em what you like, but trikes with two wheels up front are big news. This issue, we’ve got features on three newcomers: the Sturgis R18, Quadro and TerraCraft. And we have details of two other tadpole debuts from Motor Trike and 2trike. This comes hot on the heels of the Polaris Slingshot (our cover trike last issue) and the increasingly popular BRP Can-Am Spyder.

These tadpoles certainly seem to be hatching, and I sense that the market for ’em is very buoyant. Having two wheels up front certainly makes for a very different riding experience – I’ve spoken to quite a few people who, having ridden one, wouldn’t go back to the ‘traditional’ delta style. My advice: try a tadpole. I’d be fascinated to hear what you think of the experience.
