Windcheetah HyperSport

Speed redefined

One of the lightest and fastest trikes on the road, the HyperSport is aimed at satisfying the needs of most demanding rider with the perfect fusion of cutting-edge materials and hand-built perfection.

Unlike other manufacturers who simply ‘spec up’ more standard frames, the HyperSport has been redesigned from the ground up enabling you to conquer climbs, destroy decents and own the track.

hypersport carbon

Ultra lightweight frame and castings

The Hypersport features extensive use of weight saving Carbon Fibre and has undergone a complete revision of all the aluminium frame lugs, as well as reduced tube wall thickness.

All this adds up to a 20% weight reduction compared to the ClubSport yet still retaining class-leading stiffness for effortless forward motion.

carbon leaf springs

Enhanced driver comfort

Driver comfort is high priority; a unique carbon fibre leaf spring suspension system is standard, cradling a cutaway lightweight carbon seat and bespoke wicking seat cushion.

The perfect balance between comfort and weight reduction, this unique solution has no wearing parts and remains totally maintenance-free.

upgraded drivetrain

Upgraded drivetrain

Other standard features include titanium front and rear axles with titanium, aluminium and stainless fasteners used throughout.

Revised derailleur mounting enables a much wider gear range choice, completed with a race-ready Shimano DuraAce/Ultegra groupset.
