ANDERSON DYNAMICS is a start-up component trike
company developed to manufacture, assemble and market component trike kits and
turnkey vehicles. The RktshpTM (Rocket Ship) is a two seat, high performance,
lightweight, mid-engine, three wheel vehicle, or trike.
Having a desire to build an outstanding three-wheel vehicle, Carey Anderson set out to design a trike based on the physics of vehicle dynamics. Using a front wheel driveline and relocating it to the back of the vehicle, for desirable weight
distribution and a favorable center of gravity, resulted in a mid-engine
trike. To keep the vehicle stiff, light
and strong he used a tube space frame, which allows the vehicle to maintain its
lightness while adding strength and safety.
Not having any front suspension designs available that he felt would
work in this application a new design was needed. Carey then designed and
patented his own front-end suspension based on equal length control arm
geometry. This resulted in keeping the
tire at its optimum footprint at all times, with superior handling, and
comfort. The result has been the birth
of the RktshpTM. Being classified as a
motorcycle, one occupant may drive in the HOV lane, fuel mileage is excellent at
45+ mpg, you don't have to hold it up at stops and it won't fall over, and we
believe will be the best value for the money on the market. With its weight distribution, low CG (center
of gravity), small frontal area, cleaner aerodynamics and optimized patented
front suspension the RktshpTM is a highly desirable, and outrageously fun vehicle
to drive, and is completely unique.
