Now older riders can cruise in style and stability with the feature-packed Adventurer Series Tricycle from Freedom Concepts.
The Adventurer AS 2000 brings cycling to life for everyone, especially those that require some stability in their ride, thanks to its 35" rear stance. It has many of the same great features as the smaller Discovery series of tricycles and is designed to fit riders 14 years old and up to adults.
Its walk-through design and step-on platform make it easy to get on the Adventurer and get going while adjustable handlebars, seats and crank mechanisms help allow for quick adjustment among multiple users. The direct-drive pedaling system means riders can pedal backward to build momentemum for moving forward.
Stopping power is provided by two rear brakes with controls that can be mounted on the handlebars. For added safety or if riders are unable to operate the brake levers, one of the brakes may be positioned on the discreet Rear Steer Assistance Handle.
In addition to the standard AS 2000 model, the Adventurer Series also comes in a narrower version with a 31" rear width for navigating doorways in schools or therapy centers and a heavy duty version with a longer length and higher weight capacity.
The Adventurer Series is great for those with simple balance problems and individuals with more involved cases of Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Autism and other disabilities. These tricycles build strength, endurance, range of motion and coordination all while being fun and engaging.
