This recumbent usually takes 3 weeks for delivery.  Certain colors/speed configurations may be faster at 5-7 business days.  Please contact us for more info.

The Performer JC-26X rear suspension recumbent trike comes with free shipping and no sales taxes.  

The JC-26X introduces rear suspension into the model range.  Standardized across the 27 and 30 speed models you’ll find a robust aircraft-grade 7005 aluminum frame, Tektro levers, and Michelin tires, plus the FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) cushion mesh seat with a headrest.

The Chrome Moly fork means extra strength but not extra weight.  Chrome Moly is a high-quality steel that will take the rigors that the roads will dish out in the thousands of miles ahead.

The 27 Speed is characterized by the 9s Sunrace cassette and the Novela Mechanical Disc Brakes. The higher end of the chainring delivers a 52/11 for sporty descents and rip roaring tearaways along the flats. The lower end gives you a 30/34 combination that would get you up K2 in the Himalayas (and the rear rack gives you plenty of oxygen bottle storage capacity).

The 30 Speed provides the key components of Shimano’s superior Tiagra 10 speed groupset along with Avid’s powerful BB (“ball bearings”) 5 mechanical disc brakes.  Avid has done an amazing job with the design- there’s an inboard pad-adjustment knob that allows fine tuning the distance between the rotors and the pads. 

Add the very nifty Tri-Align caliper positioning system to this (aligns the pads parallel to the rotor in around a jiffy), and you have a powerful and durable braking system that provides superior stopping power.

The JC-26X is an affordable trike that has the best of both worlds: a rear suspension and a direct steer.

        Mostly good experience.

        The trike arrived within a few days after it was shipped. It took about two weeks altogether. I ordered the milky white color. I expected more after watching the reviews raving about the paint jobs. Mine had a run and sag in the paint albeit in an inconspicuous place. What really bothered me was the scratches down to the metal on the cross piece in plain view. Good thing they send touch up paint.Thankfully there were no dents in the aluminum frame. The scratches could have been because of UPS throwing the package around, something I sometimes think they do deliberately. But I can't be sure as I was in such a hurry to unbox the unit I didn't take notice of damaged packing materials.
        Other than the paint issues, I think the quality of the trike is quite good.
        I did order the chain adjuster for multiple riders from the USA dealer of Performance and made the mistake of ordering the extra chain, thinking it was a complete chain. For 30 extra dollars, it was a foot of chain that I didn't need, and to add insult to injury, a mismatched connecting link. So if you order the chain adjuster, don't order it with the "chain".
        I also noticed the rear tire wasn't seated quite right on the bead, so deflated it and found the tube was pinched.
        Assembly instructions are weak, but a u-tube search will give you an excellent guide.

        First time trike owner

        I was very impressed with the workmanship, it took me about 5 hours to assemble my trike, leisurely working with breaks. The paint job was impeccable, I use to paint cars and believe me this paint job would work on any vehicle and be beautiful. First ride went very well smooth, shifted very good, the only problem I had was thd front top tube came loose,so I'm going to use small hose clamps to secure the tubes. I have looked at many trikes and for my money, why should I pay twice the price for the same quality and workmanship? Thank you performer for a fantastic trike,I will be purchasing a second rtrike for my wife in the future. Lastly watch the videos on youtube, they are a great help, I purchased the JC26X, 30 speed with a mesh seat. I have both knees replaced, this is by far the most comfortable ride I've ever had, looking forward to many years of riding.

        Thanks so much Joe for your wonderful review! We're so glad you love your Performer JC-26X trike. The Upzy Family wishes you many years of happy riding! :)

        Exactly what I ordered and very quick Delivery

        Upzy was fast and I had no problems with my order.
        Trike came much faster than I expected, and arrived well packaged and in good shape.
        Price was cheaper than anywhere else I could find, and the TRIKE is awesome!

        The instructions are pretty simplistic and I recommend watching the youtube assembly video by RBR, it was fantastic.
        I used the tools that came with the JC-26X to assemble and they worked well, they are also my foundation of ride along tools for the trike when I am riding away from my house.
        Get a tire pump with a gauge with presta valve fill ability! Trikes tire pressure is more adjustable that your old mountain or bmx bike, (you cannot, with most trike tires, tell the pressure with the old squeeze method) and you will need to experiment with the tire pressure that combines the best feel for your conditions, mine are at 60 PSI currently and its a nice mix of vibration absorption and sharp handling. Tire pressure ranges at 37 PSI to 72 PSI.
        It took me 3 days to fully build.
        The first day I rode it by 9PM after starting at 2PM with assembly. But I didn't install any of the extra's. Do not overly loosen the clip pedals tensioner, or the threaded plate can pop off and I have not been able to get it back on yet, after 5 hours or messing with it.
        I had another set of clip pedals thankfully!
        Highly recommend getting shoes that clip to the pedals, much safer. You otherwise run the risk of running over your foot/feet/legs with the front tires. My dad has done it on his trike and said it hurt ALOT and he wasn't going fast.
        Top speed so far is 28.8 MPH. Careful with the steering at speed it is really sensitive.

        Thanks for the great review Adam!

        Recumbent trike

        Love it!!!! Took a bit longer to assemble than I hoped. YouTube videos are very helpful. The trike comes with very tool and accessory you need. It's a fantastic ride.
        Going to check into getting fatter tires since in Kansas we ride on gravel quite a bit.
        Totally great value. I plan on purchasing 2 more for my grandkids.

        Thanks for your great review Diane! We're so glad you love your trike! If you have any questions about purchasing for your grandkids, feel free to email hello@upzy.com :)

        •  It does not apply to prices for our own store bought at different dates.   We reserve the right to change prices due to fluctuating sale prices from our manufacturers.  Once purchased, you "lock" in that sale price.  If price for that same item in our store decreases tomorrow or at any future date, you will still be locked into your original sale price.

        • The competitor must be an Authorized Dealer for the product in question.
        • The product has to be genuine and cannot be a knock-off sold at a much lower price.
        • The Price Match Guarantee is for the final price after shipping and sales taxes.  Some online stores advertise a lower price but add on shipping charges and sales taxes in the checkout process, ultimately making their price higher than ours.  We never have hidden fees.
        • If you purchase something from us and subsequently ask for a price match from another store, it has to be done within 5 days after purchase date.

Tire pressure ranges at 37 PSI to 72 PSI.
        It took me 3 days to fully build.
        The first day I rode it by 9PM after starting at 2PM with assembly. But I didn't install any of the extra's. Do not overly loosen the clip pedals tensioner, or the threaded plate can pop off and I have not been able to get it back on yet, after 5 hours or messing with it.
        I had another set of clip pedals thankfully!
        Highly recommend getting shoes that clip to the pedals, much safer. You otherwise run the risk of running over your foot/feet/legs with the front tires. My dad has done it on his trike and said it hurt ALOT and he wasn't going fast.
        Top speed so far is 28.8 MPH. Careful with the steering at speed it is really sensitive.

        Thanks for the great review Adam!

        Recumbent trike

        Love it!!!! Took a bit longer to assemble than I hoped. YouTube videos are very helpful. The trike comes with very tool and accessory you need. It's a fantastic ride.
        Going to check into getting fatter tires since in Kansas we ride on gravel quite a bit.
        Totally great value. I plan on purchasing 2 more for my grandkids.

        Thanks for your great review Diane! We're so glad you love your trike! If you have any questions about purchasing for your grandkids, feel free to email hello@upzy.com :)
