The Amtryke RS16 tricycle has a fixed drive that helps children who might otherwise have problems making a full pedal rotation. The foot crank is constantly in motion for full therapeutic effect. A highly supportive and adjustable seat is particularly helpful for those with low tone and/or trunk control.

A fixed gear allows the rider to reverse the trike and to slow it down without using a brake lever. The trike’s momentum carries the cranks past top-dead-centre which can be helpful for developing leg strength and flexibility. Coasting is not possible with a fixed drive; when limb motion stops, the bike does as well.
Another indispensable feature is the detachable carer-control mechanism, which is connected to the trike’s steering and allows the parent or carer to give a helpful push or do some corrective steering.
The Amtryke Rear-Steer models are available in two other sizes:

Finding Your Cycle...
All kinds of bikes for all kinds of people. That’s our thinking at Get Cycling, and we demonstrate, adapt and supply what is probably the world’s widest range of specialised cycles. We are a not-for-profit, operating nationally, and promoting diversity in cycle design and supply. We believe that our new and refurbished cycles take pedal-power into new realms of delight.
We have child-carrying options, cargo cycles, tandems, adapted cycles for special needs, folding bikes, fun bikes, tricycles, companion cycles, multi-seaters, recumbents and much more. If we don’t have a new model of what you need then we may well have a refurbished version. In any case, please talk to us so that we can check that the cycle you have in mind is right for you.
