The Terrier is a pediatric adaptive tricycle designed with younger children in mind, it is suitable for children from 4 ½ to 8 years old.
The Terrier is capable of supporting up to 100 lbs.
The inseam range for a child using the Terrier is 16 ½”-21 ½”.
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!
The standard gearing on this trike is the mid-range gear 18 Tooth chainwheel with a 24 Tooth rear sprocket - 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.
Triaid features are not found in many similar products and it is this uniqueness that they strive to maintain.
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.
The Terrier adds contemporary design, comfort and safety to enhance a child’s strength, self-esteem and FUN. The Terrier’s stability is built into the frame with a low center of gravity and a broad wheelbase, helping to prevent tipping. An adjustable steering stop is another stability feature the Terrier offers to help control the turning circle of the special needs tricycle.
