Quadricycle Manufacturer listing

"Finding quadricycle manufacturer information is easy with your listings here"

Here's a listing of all of the quadricycle manufacturers that I know about out there in the world. This page is pretty long and I bet you didn't know there were so many options for the quadricycle (also called a quadracycle or surrey) out there. If you know of more, please feel free to submit them on the suggestions page at the bottom and I'll be happy to look it over and link it to my site.

Credit belongs to helmets.org for the information which I used as a starting point reference.

  • Adbikes. is a quadricycle manufacturer from the UK that has a line of four wheelers with high cargo areas that can carry a billboard ad. They also have a 4 wheel courier and load carrying model. Both models have electrical assistance as well as pedal power.
  • Berg Toys of The Netherlands has quadracycles that look like pedaled go-karts, and tricycles as well, including one with an articulated frontquadricycle wheel for body-lean steering called the BalanzBike. There is a dealer in the US in Florida and they offer and extensive selection of the Berg line.  Here is the link to their store. They have off-road and street models, and four-seaters for the whole family. There are mud-guards to protect your arms from the rear wheels, and fully-enclosed chains for wet weather riding. A really cool bike for your younger riders!
  • Blackbird Designs has a system called the Quadribentquadricycle that attaches two normal recumbent bikes to make a four wheel, side-by-side "Sociable Tandem" with independent gearing and pedaling. The recumbents can be detached for solo use. The company can provide doggy platforms and a rumble seat for kids. This quadricycle manufacturer also does some custom work and adaptive equipment for special needs riders. There are lots of cargo options available for their both single and multi-rider bikes.
  • Bill Blaki-Very Eco quadricyclehas a quad designed designed for mobility and has a sprung sub frame under the seat, five speed gearbox that includes reverse, and front disk/rear coaster brakes.

  • Body Cycles quadricycle is an Australian quadricycle manufacturer that has a four wheeler constructed of two side-by-side linked bikes for those who can ride in normal biking posture. They also offer three wheel bikes that are shown here.
  • Brox HPVs is located in Manchester, England. This quadricycle manufacturer's site is currently down but you can see some of theirquadricycle stuff in google searches.

The rider is in a recumbent position, with a large cargo bed behind, and the frame is articulated to keep all four wheels on the ground at all times. There is a flatbed, a cargo box and a child carrier model. They also have a "One Less Car" tricycle pedicab and other tricycle models that you can see here.quadricycle

It was designed for conferences, team building and other strategic type meetings. Here you can see a video of the conference bike from the manufacturer.

  • Hollywood Bikequadricycle has a side by side tandem four wheeler that looks like it begins by linking two solos together like the ones from Blackbird Designs, Body Cycles or Grannybike but adds a wide seat across the two bikes and a surrey-like canopy top. This quadricycle manufacturer is located in Thailand and sold from the inventor's Los Angeles office. The site link is a basic information page with a few pictures.


  • International Surrey Co quadricycle is a prestigious quadricycle manufacturer that has been in the business for a very long time. They attribute their success to giving outstanding customer service and superior quality.
  • Just Two BikesquadricycleLocated in Hugo, MN, these bikes are unique to say the least. Their products fit into both the quadricycle and recumbent categories. Not satisfied with a four wheel bicycle, they also have a "tricumbent" that looks pretty interesting. I'll put more about this on both the three wheel bicycle page.
  • Karbykquadricycle(sounds like car bike). These guys offer three different models of four wheel bicycles. A race model, rent model and road model. As far as quadricycle manufacturers go, they are truly a different company and their products show it!

  • Kettler makes some really nice 4 wheel bicycles or pedal cars for kids. Not so much an adult product but very nice quality.  These are some really super cars that are built like a tank and will last through your kids roughest play.  Of course if you back over it with your car, there isn't much that can stand up to that.

  • TumTumCar is produced by JMC Motoronics, a California quadricycle manufacturer. They have two models of four wheelers. Both can be pedal-powered, but one also has a 35cc recoil start gas motor. If you must have a four wheeler that burns fossil fuel, here it is. Both have front and rear independent suspension with springs and shock absorbers.
  • Ulamo, a Dutch company, makes four wheeled go-cart-like pedal vehicles that sell in the Netherlands. We have not been able to find them on the Ulamo Web page, but you might contact Ulamo U.S.A., One Rockefeller Plaza, STE 1420, New York, NY 10020, phone (888) 449-3365.
  • Ultimate-Quadracycle has the CosyCycle line of trikes and four wheel bikes. Located in Canada, they are the North American rep for CosyCycles, an inter nation quadricycle manufacturer.

When we last checked in August of 2007 their Web page said "Nothing here yet. Come back later!" A Google search indicates that the name Velocar was used in the 1930's for a line of recumbents.
  • Work-Bikes This Berlin company (Work Bikes Dumdei/Eilhauer GbR) has a unique four wheeler with a large rear sign for commercial advertising. The rider is semi-recumbent in the front with a front fairing, and it has disk wheels. The drive train is a design developed by AVD/Windcheetah. It rents for 228 Euros per day in Berlin. The site is in German, but here is an English translation.
  • Worksman Cycles is a US manufacturer founded in 1898 and best known for their utility and cargo bikes, most of the tricycles. In addition to an extensive tricycle line with many variations, they distribute four wheel imports from Italy, the Sirenetta and Delphino Quadricycle Surreys. They are in Ozone Park, New York.

It weighs 70 kg, and can be fitted with an optional electric assist. They also have two-seaters, and plan to eventually have a sail version and a super light version. ZEM USA has a Web site in English with photos and info on the models available in the US. Unfortunately it now says that ZEM Cycles are out of production, but pre-owned vehicles are available. Larry Black of Mount Airy Bicycles Maryland emailed us in November of 2007 that he had three Zemcycles in stock.
  • Z-Rider is a four seater with two independent adult pedaling positions in the rear and two child passenger seats in front. It has 8 speeds. The four 20" wheels are independently suspended.
