The Tiger Trike

This trike features a maintenance-free, friction-free drive system so even children with very low muscle tone can pedal a Tiger.

All Tomcat Trikes are bespoke builds, please call 01452 616 900 to discuss your requirements.

Fact File

The Tiger’s striking and unusual design was a result of the designer’s determination to match the pedal spacing to the narrowness of a two year old’s pelvis. Three braking systems, steering controls and the drive system were all hidden within the Tiger body to achieve this. Regular export to Scandinavia began.

Suitability

Young children over 75cm tall or 18 months in age, with visual impairment, mild to severe learning difficulties, and/or physical disability, children with restricted growth.
