Roadsmith was the first company to innovate independent rear suspension for trike conversions. We employ a trailing arm style design which eliminates unesscessary moving parts. Click on the graphic below to learn more:
A Roadsmith conversion extends the overall wheelbase of the bike by 8", which sets the axle behind the passenger (instead of sitting over it). Any vehicle with a longer wheelbase will ride smoother since there is more space in between bumps.
The conversion features automotive grade components which provide maintenance free longevity and commercial availability when the time comes to replace a wearable item.

DESIGN: Unique and highly engineered approach to power transference in a trike. The driveshaft incorporates a slip yoke which allows for removal and inspection in a matter of minutes, unlike the labor intensive procedure of the competition.
STRENGTH: Constructed of 2” tubular steel and equal size, sealed automotive u-joints. Ensures balanced delivery of power, longevity and commercial availability of components, unlike the competition.
PROVEN: Over 20 years and counting with virtually no failures. It’s details like this that have continually made Roadsmith the leader in trike design and innovation
