While an adult tricycle is often more costly than two-wheeled bikes, they are an excellent investment. A three-wheeled bike is easy to ride and stable. When looking for an adult tricycle
, you’ll want to pick carefully to ensure you’re picking a ride that best fits your needs.
When you’re in the market for an adult trike, consider the following factors:
- Saddle – Tricycles typically feature larger, wide saddles since they are designed for casual riding. You’ll want to find a ride with a comfortable, well-padded saddle. For extra comfort, some saddles also have a backrest.
- Speed – There are two types of tricycles: single-speed and multi-speed. Multi-speed trikes are an excellent option for those who will be riding on hilly, challenging terrain. Single-speed trikes require less maintenance and feature one gear.
- Basket – Most adult tricycles feature a basket located between the back wheels. The basket is beneficial when going to the grocery store or running other errands. For convenience, many trikes have a basket that is either collapsible or removable.
- Wheel Size – The standard sizes for the wheels of adult tricycles are 20-, 24-, and 26-inches. If you are on the shorter size, consider a smaller wheel. A smaller wheel also create a more compact ride which allows for easier storage. A trike with a larger wheel is best for taller individuals and provides a smoother ride.
