JR Drift Trikes have been working extensively with the legendary geared hub manufacturer, Sturmey Archer to bring a drift trike specific, single-speed geared hub to the market. To make things clearer, this hub is geared at 3.8:1 pedal ratio, meaning that for every one full turn of the pedals, the wheel spins nearly 4 times.

During development of our early trikes and using 1:1 pedal hubs, it soon became apparent to us that having a 1:1 pedal system was no great advantage over pegs. It was fine for the pull-away but once travelling 10mph+, the pedals were redundant. We soon got bored of waiting for the steeps and worrying about initiating a drift, killing speed. We knew there had to be a way to make a pedal system that worked. With Sturmey Archer's impressive knowledge and over 100 years experience combined with our constant testing and pedalling we came up with the perfect solution and what we believe will be a must-have for all drift trikes of the future.

So basically, the 'Game-Changer' turns every slight slope into a hill and every regular hill into a mountain. It can be pedalled in between every drift to maintain maximum speed and lets you pedal at 40mph+.

This is the hub of the future. Get involved, don't get left behind.

  1. A must for the serious trike drifter

    Posted by Lusander "Stitch" Luansing jr. on 26th Mar 2015

    If your sick of a limb pedal at speed, losing steam after a slide or just need more umph , the GC is the cure to what ales you. When rolling downhill, a few slow cranks is all you need to catch the pack. The gearing and pedal effort takes a little time to get used to when switching from a 1:1, but once you come to peace that you wont be doing a alot of running on the pedals your be good to go. Definitely not for the casual parking lot slider, they weren't joking when they say " DOWNHILL USE ONLY "

    The geared hub makes pedaling on flat ground a struggle initially but with a little push start and some patience, your be up to speed. Your never skip leg day again ^_'
