Extra product information
The trike was designed for children with disabilities and can be operated by pedalling and/or by hand cranking. An enclosed chain attached to both the handles and the pedals ensures that the foot and hand move in unison, though reversal of the foot pedal relationship is possible. This can be done by a bicycle shop.
This is a sturdy but very heavy tricycle and could be hard to push for children with abnormal (either high or low) muscle tone.
The seat has an adjustable height back support and a chest and lap sash with hook and loop tape attachments.
This trike comes disassembled and assembly instructions are kept in the picture file.
The steering column can be adapted in 3 ways:
1. It can be fixed so that it can only go straight ahead for children just learning to use it;
2. If one screw is removed, partial freedom of turning is possible (20 degrees turning radius);
3. If both screws are removed, full turning of the steering column is possible.
