Adaptive Tricycle

New Large Design

Features

Riding a bike is part of childhood, and this bike for children with special needs aims to provide that exhilarating experience to every child. We’ve thought through all the features – from the supportive backrest to the low transfer step – that will make this tricycle as accommodating as possible. Use the slides below to learn more about Adaptive Tricycles.

Seat adjustability

  • The seat glides up and down on a low-friction rail with height indications marked in increments. This rider pushes with his feet to help his caregiver raise the seat.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

  • The seat depth adjusts easily with a knob underneath.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

Carbon fiber drive belt

  • The carbon fiber drive belt will not rust or stretch, and will last at least five times longer than a bicycle chain.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

Variable resistance & parking brake

  • Variable pedal resistance: The adjustable brake can provide drag or lock the wheels for safe transfer.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

  • The easily engaged parking brake grips both back wheels and keeps the Adaptive Trike firmly in place.

    Available for the small and medium tricycles only.

Easy access

  • The laterals and handlebar swing away for easy transfers.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

  • The low step, flip-away handlebar and removable laterals make transfers easy.

Backrest angle

  • Backrest angle: Position the backrest vertically or at a 7½° or 15° recline.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

Adjustable pedals

  • The pedals adjust forward and backward on a pedal crank to position the rider’s feet. The straps, adjustable using snaps and slots, can be secured at any location on the edge of the pedal. The sandals can be removed to reveal standard bike pedals underneath.

    Available for the large tricycle only.

  • There is a heel stop on the back of the sandal.

Puncture proof wheels

  • The sturdy wheels are manufactured with solid polyurethane foam tires.

  • Tricycles have puncture proof BMX-type wheels. A low gear ratio makes pedaling easier for beginners and slows down speeders.

Rear basket

  • The rear basket comes with every tricycle and is useful for storage or transportation. It is big enough to hold the stationary stand.

    Available for the large tricycle only.
