The Mountain Trike is an all-terrain manual wheelchair which has been designed using a masterful blend of unique innovation control and drive system with high specification mountain bike technology. It provides wheelchair users with far greater freedom and independence than ever before to travel off the beaten track. No other manual wheelchair on the market provides comparable high level of maneuverability and uneven surface performance, practicality and comfort.
Despite deep mud and wet ground the unique drive and steering system means your hands stay clean and dry:
The Trike is light, yet robust enough to tackle dense woodland and mountain bike tracks. Much of this is down to the three independent shock absorbers, one for each of the drive wheels and one on the small wheel at the back, these keep the Mountain Trike firmly rooted.
The back wheel is where the steering takes place, which provides excellent control at high and low speeds.
The revolutionary lever drive system provides the mechanical advantage to ride up steep hills and maximize the rider's strength whilst the whole time keeping their hands nice and clean!

All weather mountain bike disc brakes provide excellent stopping power and control and can be mounted on either the left or the right depending on the rider's preference.
