British adventurer Maria Leijerstam, become the first person to cycle to the South Pole from the edge of the Antarctic continent.
Maria, aged 35 from Wales, raced two men for the title and arrived at the pole hundreds of miles ahead of her nearest rival. She used the commercially-available Sprint trike, made by Inspired Cycle Engineering (ICE).
After 9 days cycling, Maria completed the 400 mile expedition at approximately 1am GMT on the 27th December 2013.
The ICE Full Fat FS evolved from an ICE custom-made trike, features heat-treated 4130 chromoly frame and oversized rims, and tyres combined with components suited to tackle a range of off-road conditions.
On this version they include a Rohloff XL 14-speed gear hub, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and suspension front and rear. The C.F.T. hinge allows the trike to be folded for easier transportation to the trail.
Is an expedition-tough trike, for wherever you want to ride.
True to its custom-build roots, each ICE Full Fat trike will be made to order at the ICE factory in England. This gives enthusiasts the option to customise parts and components, ensuring the best combination for their riding style.
