Varna Trike

Varna presents the new Adult Tricycle. This handcrafted model is the great transportation alternative we are looking for these days, especially with the addition of an electric assist motor. The Varna trike is designed with stability and safety in mind. This model comes with a unique patented leaning mechanism. While most trikes become unstable at higher speeds and particularly when cornering, the Varna trike's leaning mechanism lets you corner like an ordinary 2 wheeled bike by leaning into the curve. This design also allows for a narrow wheel base on the rear of the tricycle. If you are able to get the handle bars through a gap then the rear wheels will also fit unlike most tricycles that require a wide rear wheel base for stability.

Shopping and commuting will become a treat. You can carry large loads with the wide and sturdy basket provided between the rear wheels. You can pedal for a work out or let the electric motor help boost your energy output anywhere from 25%-300%.

Varna Pipeline

This unique and very creative bicycle is specifically designed for the massive water pipelines of California and other U.S. States, where a worker often finds themselves having to walk great distances inside these massive pipelines to arrive at there designated area of work. ONLY VARNA'S Innovation Team has allowed for these long tiring and potentially unsafe walks to be eliminated! This bike easily maneuvers inside these pipelines and allows the worker a much more timely response. Very creatively, as you can not turn these bikes around to go back, you CAN completely INVERT this bike to allow you to ride from where you came! Great for safety and emergency response, a MUST for a seriously safe worksite!
