Want to see a child smile? Just put a tricycle underneath him! Just about every child (and most adults, for that matter) love to cycle. And with sporty adaptive tricycles from Rifton, every child can have his or her own set of wheels and the freedom to take off and go.
For the therapist, there's hardly a more fun, motivating activity for improving leg strength, balance, fitness and endurance. Children of virtually any age enjoy cycling on Rifton Tricycles. In addition to the great physical benefits, trike riding encourages socialization and the development of friendships. Children with special needs can zoom around right alongside their peers on a tricycle that's as cool and colorful as anything on the sidewalk. And of course, our adaptive Tricycles are designed to be flexible and adjustable - growing with your little rider - with no tools required.
