Ian Sims (CEO):
One of the things I enjoy the most is designing a new trike. I like a challenge. After a tour of dealers in the U.S.A. 2010, the challenge was to de- sign a trike that was suitable for off road as well as on road riding. Thus I designed the Magnum, with it adjustable seat height, and very versatile capabilities.
Obviously by the demand, which we have not been able to satisfy, it has appealed to a broad range of people. The Hand Magnum will now join it, for those of us who have special needs. Sometimes, determination is your best tool, but it helps to have a good machine under you.
Paul Pritchard (Green Speed Customers & Inspirational Person):
Paul Pritchard is a born explorer. He was one of the best rock climbers in Europe until 1998 when a climbing accident almost killed him. Paul spent a year in the hospital and much longer reteaching himself basic skills like walking and talking. He said he felt like a baby. The accident left Paul hemiplegic - meaning he could only use the left side of his body. Paul’s adventurer’s heart beat as strong as ever and in 2012 he set off with his Greenspeed Magnum on his most ambitious journey: 1100km (640 miles) from Tibet to Nepal. Many cyclists consider this pilgrimage through Himalaya terrain the ultimate challenge. Paul wanted to film the adventure and thus show others that disabled does not mean unable. Indeed!
