A specialist equipment provider is hoping to bring accessible cycling to more disabled people around the UK with the launch of its latest trike.
Tomcat, a specialist manufacturer, is collaborating with a number of cycling centres around the UK, including one organisation called Cycling Projects which manages over 50 ‘Wheels for all’ hubs around the UK.
The main objective of this collaboration is to raise awareness of the possibilities of new Bullet trike and its benefits for the end-user, particularly for those that think that cycling is entirely beyond their reach.
The Tomcat Bullet was launched in September and claims it is equipped with a number of ‘world firsts’ for disabled teenage and adult users.
There are currently five models: Silver, Apprentice, Flash, Cycle Squad and The Rotor. Each model is designed to suit a different need, from pure sport and leisure, through to severe learning and mobility difficulties.
The Buller features a swivel seat for easy access on and off the trike, full adjustment while the rider stays seated, Carer supervision of steering and braking, the added option of electric power assistance, conversion to a bike-towed trailer and quick family car transportability.
The Tomcat Bullet range of low sitting adult trikes claims to be a major advancement in leisure and special needs mobility cycling.
In 2018 Tomcat will be working collaboratively with a number of key organisations, to reach the teenage and adult markets.
