Low Step Tricycles Make
Mounting A Breeze

Low step tricycles may be just the right choice for seniors or riders with limited flexibility. The step-over height is considerably less than more standard trikes to make mounting and dismounting easier. We all lose some flexibility with age but that doesn't mean that we should give up the pleasure of cycling.

Low step tricycles offer a more stable platform than bicycles and have a lot of pluses like having the ability to ride as slow as you please with no balance problems and being able to sit with both feet comfortably on the ground. The low step design adds greater ease of mounting to the benefits that trikes offer.

In addition to the low step frame design they can offer all of the options that more standard tricycles do like multiple gears etc.
