Based on the pedigree of the ICE Vortex and building on ICE’s design heritage, the ICE VTX™ represents the epitome of specialist design, incorporating decades of technical knowledge culminating in a new breed of recumbent trike. Sleek, lean and finely tuned, the ICE VTX™ delivers superior performance, speed, and precise handling to even the most exacting rider.

A speed-optimised frame featuring a hydro-formed back-end and unique lightweight boom ensures a ride with stiffness and optimal power transfer whilst remaining lightweight. A one piece handlebar and specific cruciform geometry ensure nimble and stable handling at high speed, providing responsive feedback and enabling rider confidence even in the most extreme circumstances.

That was my thought as well after riding Phil's vortex for a few km. Quite a flexy boom on his vortex

Umm yeah - I rode one in Canberra, yours certainly puts the power down better than the 2012+ where they stripped the weight out by using thinnish noodle tubes. I have an email via FFC where one of the ICE guys basically said as much to Ian. These days if I were buying an ICE it would be Sprint or Adventure - but realistically the Cattrikes do an amazing job for alot less money and aint flexy - if you can handle the steering ;-).
