Small children have a narrow pelvis but standard pedal spans rarely reflects that fact.
Tomcat wanted theirr Tiger riders’ posture to be totally natural, so they manufactured their own special crank and pedal system.
They saved a full 4.5 cm on the pedal span by tucking the drive away inside the Tigers cool looking frame.
When pedals match pelvis, the legs are naturally comfortable and the Tiger becomes the ideal therapy tool for growing bodies.
“I think that the gift of Anouk’s trike has been the single most life enhancing act of kindness we have received since Anouk’s diagnosis – it has made a massive difference to her quality of life and hence to ours… Anouk loves it and is very proud of it and we are very grateful.”

In 1997, Bob met his wife Anne and her son Thomas, who had Angelman’s syndrome, a profound disability, typified by severe learning difficulties, sleep disturbance and poor coordination. Bob and Tom soon became best friends and Bob looked for ways to help Tom sleep through increasing his exercise. At that time, trikes were considered unsuitable for children like Tom on safety and ability grounds, however Bob invented an entirely new kind of trike called a “Tomcat” which overcame the difficulties that were holding children like Tom back.
Over the past twenty years, Tomcat has helped thousands of children who each have a unique story to tell. They have built a reputation for excellence, and a willingness to take on challenges through a readiness to innovate in building special needs trikes, that other companies were unable or unwilling to match. As a result Tomcat enjoys a second to none reputation.
Requires some assembly preferably by a trained cycle mechanic.
