Tomcat Tiger

From £665.00*

The Tomcat Tiger is designed specifically for young children or those with a restricted growth condition to pedal easily and comfortably, either independently or under supervision. The Tiger’s purposefully narrow pedal spacing provides the perfect leg span for a small pelvis, promoting natural, geometric support for hips, legs and knees, usually without the need for calipers.

*Price for the “basic” model.

"Thank you so much for Harry’s new Tiger Trike. Despite his reaction at his fitting, he absolutely loves his trike which is providing his first taste of independent mobility. At last we are able to enjoy being in the big outdoors as a family. It is also a huge talking point with passers-by, who all want to know where we got it. Thanks again."
Harry, Hilary, and Paul Flynn

Innovations

The Tiger is among the smallest special needs trikes on the market.  Created specifically for young children, its design supports a natural posture making it the perfect therapy tool for growing bodies.

To do this we invented a brand new crank and pedal system.  No suitable part exists in the marketplace for such young people, so we needed to build a smaller component, allowing for narrower pelvises.  This unique bit of kit aligns children’s legs in the correct position, avoiding the pitfalls of wider, mass market pedal systems which force the feet apart and create other postural problems.

Our solution moves away from the traditional design, encasing the mechanism inside a smart central unit.  This protects the components making the Tiger very reliable and maintenance free.

This central unit also supports our Carer Control™ or Carer Braking™ system which allows a parent or supervisor to both steer and brake if required.  The control handle and carer strap brake can be installed and removed in moments, offering independence and supervision.

As with all our trikes, the Tiger will be manufactured and fitted to your child’s specific requirements – both in terms of size and ability. 

Despite these unique innovations, the Tomcat Tiger looks like a regular trike, giving children an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors just like everyone else.
