In creating the F3 Adrenaline TriRod Motorcycles set out to produce a radical new vehicle that would offer exceptional performance. In developing the F3 Adrenaline TriRod Motorcycles combined advanced technologies from the Formula 1 racing, aerospace, and motorcycle industries.

With a low center of gravity and a wide track, the F3 Adrenaline is exceptionally stable. TriRod engineers chose the 2-1 layout (2 wheels in front, 1 in back) over the traditional 1-2 trike configuration for its superior handling, stability, and rollover resistance. With the weight biased towards the front of the vehicle in a 2-1 layout, the vehicle inherently understeers. A traditional 1-2 layout tends to oversteer. TriRods are tuned for neutral to slight understeer for aggressive but safe cornering.

In order to achieve maximum road holding performance, the TriRod F3 Adrenaline was designed with a Formula 1 type front suspension system. The double, unequal, non-parallel a-arms position the outside tire for maximum traction, exceeding over 1g in corners. Everything from roll center height to spindle offset was carefully laid out in order to achieve optimal handling and feedback from the road. Mating fully adjustable shocks to the a-arms through a pullrod and rocker keeps unsprung weight to a minimum. This allows the wheels to react faster to bumps in the road for more precise control.

From the initial concept to the design and selection of materials, TriRod engineers focused on creating an extremely light and agile machine. The F3 Adrenaline model takes every component to the extreme. Forged aluminum rims with 6061-T6 billet aluminum shock bodies, rocker arms, and pull rods keep unsprung weight to a minimum for maximum traction. Carbon fiber body panels and fenders reduce weight while maintaining strength. Heat treated chro-moly hubs are light and yet incredibly tough. 6061-T6 billet aluminum brake calipers, foot controls, and hand controls are small, light, and extremely strong.

The TriRod F3 Adrenaline’s styling is raw and minimalistic, flowing from its mechanical underpinnings. Carbon fiber body panels, fully adjustable racing shocks, and exposed suspension components reinforce the aggressive nature of the trike.

Robert Miller, TriRod Motorcycles Co-founder and Chairman, states, “TriRod’s platform offers increased safety and stability over traditional motorcycles while adding a whole new level of thrilling performance.”
