I wanted to find a bicycle that could be controled with one hand, and had three wheels, for stability, similar to the plastic "big wheel" kids used 25 years ago.
My grandson has only his left arm, and was happily riding a "big wheel" trike until the rear wheel fell off. The previous two wheeled bicycles I had given him failed to inspire his need to ride. Grif said he wanted a new "big wheel" ... I wasn't so easily convinced.
The whole idea motivated me to investigate three wheeled bicycles on the Internet. There are many; however, the Triton is, for the purpose I intended, the very best three wheeled bicycle on the market.
The Triton was an instant favorite, and Grif hasn't missed a day riding it, including during the recent snow storm. The Triton has built his confidence, and allows him to ride, side by side with his brothers, both on two wheeled bicycles. Grif has also learned to safely demonstrate skills and maneuvers that are not easily duplicated on two wheeled bicycles.
You can see that Griffin is a proud and confident cyclist, and his Triton is in the words of his friends, "...very cool...! " We think so too.
Purchasing a Triton has been a very satisfying experience, and is a bicycle that I would recommend to anyone with "special needs" children that would benefit from a three wheeled bicycle that can be controlled with one hand.
People stopped to look and one said it was cute.It is fun to ride but is best in a park or bike trail not to go up steep hills. It is good for your back and I feel safe with the three wheels and low to the ground . I rated it 4 on durability , and workmenship because I just got it and you can't tell this soon how it will hold up . I only had to ride it twice to learn how to use the handles to turn.All in All it is as my kids say SWEET...I am 59 years old :)
I bought this bike after debating the conventional upright and recumbent exercise bikes and I haven't been disappointed. Rather than sitting in the house, pedaling nowhere, I've gotten outside and enjoyed the breeze in my face. The Triton Cruiser has only one gear and the rear wheels turn the bike so you have to watch your proximity to other objects but it won't take you long to get the hang of it. Since your weight is not settled straight down on your low back and rear, you never experience back pain. You sit slightly angled back ,resting on the padded backrest, with your feet positioned forward. Before you realize it, you've been riding for hours getting sunshine, fresh air and a new appreciation for the scenery, all with no pain or discomfort. Grab your water bottle, slip on the earphones, hit PLAY on your music player and ride into the sunset. See you there.
I absolutely love my bike. I road it on a bike trail and received comments and questions. I truly had a great workout. The only negative is the fact that it only does one speed, but I can live with it. I completely love the concept of the bike; how one can sit low to the ground in a comfortable position. Not to mention how much less expensive it is compared to other recumbent bikes!!!! A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
God's peace and blessings to you!
I purshased this Triton for myself to ride around the neighborhood. I have enjoyed it, but do find that the pedals don't really allow you to go very fast. I would have liked the ability to go backwards also, which this does not. My grandson (7) loves using it, but would like to be able to go a little faster.
If you just like tooling around with the stability of a trike, then this is great.
We bought this for the kids and myself and after about a week we started having problems. The pedals are always falling off, the fenders are very flimsy and bend easily, the one brake it comes with doesn't work well, and if you turn while moving too quickly you tip the bike over. This was definately a bad purchase.
I bought one for our son who has autism because coordination and balance are difficult for him and he can not ride a bike without being on a trailer with my bike. Not only does he love it but the other kids think it's "soo coool!"
They call it a racer. It is so much fun that I bought three more for me, my husband and our other 5 year old son. We all go together now and it is a riot. Instead of saying "I want a snack" when he comes home, my 9 year old says "I want to ride my bike". Music to my ears. I had to pay $45 to have it assembled and two of them need to be brought back. The brakes don't work on one and the front part is seriously wobbly. I don't know if it was the bikes or the assembly but either way it's kind of a pain. But overall we're thrilled.
I bought this for my husband who has a bad back. The size is too small for him and he is only 5'9". However, my ten year old son loves it. He thinks the steering mechanism is right out of the Star Wars space crafts.
