Builder Profile

About Rans:

Established in 1974 on the plains of western Kansas to build Sailtrikes*, RANS has evolved into a world leader in the ever growing recumbent bike and kit plane industries.  Setting the standard of innovation in these exciting fields, RANS uses cutting edge technology to produce safe, high quality aircraft and bicycles.


Tandem riding is different, it is more than the sum of two. It empowers you to do things you thought out of reach, like crossing America. A Screamer has speed, comfort and handling to be ridden to extremes. It is the hottest recumbent tandem on the market and still climbing. Do it all on the Screamer; tour, cruise, commute, even knocks down for travel. The Screamer "TR" features S&S Couplings. The Screamer is the original recumbent tandem to feature the high/low rider positions for a compact, light, stiff frame. (no mono tube tango here!). Seats micro or macro adjust in tilt and fore and aft with the twist of a QR or pull pin. Available with optional shock fork and fenders.

Rans recommends the  Tri All 3 Sports - "Velo Safe". for the Screamer TR. You can contact Tri All 3 Sports at 1-800-733-7231.
