It has a low gear ratio for easy pedaling, 12 1/2" wheels, and smaller handlebars for those smaller fingers and hands.

The dual axle drive system reduces pedaling resistance, making it easy for a child with low muscle tone and decreased strength.
This dual-axle special needs tricycle is outfitted with a low ratio 1:1 fixed gear, which means that for one revolution of the pedals there is one revolution of the wheels.
The fixed gear design enables the child with special needs to start moving the tricycle easily, put the tricycle in reverse, and slow down if going too fast!

Triaid features are not found in many similar products and it is this uniqueness that they strive to maintain.

The standard gearing on this trike is the 18 Tooth chainwheel - other gearing is available to meet the needs of your child.
If your child's needs change, you can purchase a new Triaid chain ring for your local bike shop to install.

Every product in the TRIAID/THERAPLAY range has been extensively tried and tested to performance and suitability.

Triaid special needs tricycles are the only brand chosen for use by the UK National Health Service and carries the CE brand mark as a certificate of conformance to manufacturing procedures and product function.

There is a 4-6 week lead-time - Red & Blue may ship quicker than other colors.
