Tomcat Apprentice Bullet

From £1,834.00*

The Apprentice Bullet is a low-sitting trike created especially for adults requiring carer support and supervision. This single-speed trike can be used independently but is ideal for supervised use. When Carer Control functions are added to the Apprentice, a pedestrian carer can safely steer and brake for the rider, allowing safe exploration outdoors.

Its low-sitting position creates an easy transfer and stable ride, whilst the natural angle of the backrest is better for posture and relieves neck strain issues often encountered with more recumbent designs. The Apprentice has a light, two-piece frame which easily comes apart for transport or storage, whilst also enabling Trailer Trike conversion for accompanied rides.

“Huge thank you from Ryan and his family for his new Bullet. It’s absolutely the best. He loves it and pedals SO well, really strongly! Callipers are brilliant and correct the roll in of his knees exactly as we had hoped. We could not be more delighted and are so grateful for all your help and understanding getting to this point. We hope that whoever receives Ryan’s old green trike, that he outgrew and that we brought back to you, has many fun filled years of happy cycling.”
Sarah, Andrew and Ryan


The Apprentice Bullet is a smart, versatile trike able to support both independent and supervised riders thanks to a series of innovations.

For a comfortable ride and easy access

The Apprentice Bullet’s upholstered, low seat is in the ideal position for both access and posture, making it very easy to use and comfortable across long distances.  The options of a Sliding and/or Swivel Seat™ allows riders to turn the seat to one side, sit and smoothly and easily swivel and slide the seat into their ideal position.  

For control and safety

Carer Control™ allows a parent or supervisor to both steer and brake from behind when needed, whilst the Carer Braking™ strap allows the child to take control whilst you apply the brake if needed.  

For a powered drive

The Bionic Buddy™ allows the Apprentice Arrow to be motorised when needed, at a walking pace, in order to assist the rider and the carer.  No pedalling is required for the motor to take over, and the throttle can be controlled by either rider or carer.  This low-speed e-drive accessory is fully legal for use on UK pavements and pathways.

For easy transport and storage

The two part frame means the Apprentice  can be taken apart, packed away and assembled again in seconds.  The Quick Release Frame™ has been deliberately designed to be easy to use independently.  By placing the trike on a stand before operating the release mechanism (or latch), it is completely stable, keeping you in control throughout.

For multi use environments

The ‘Special Edition’ option adapts this trike for multi use environments by combining  a sliding and swivelling seat with telescopic cranks.  This allows rapid adjustment to fit any rider even whilst they are seated.  As a result, setting up is quicker and less stressful for both the rider and technician.

Case Study

“I was born to cycle”

Tomcat trikes have been able to give Sue an opportunity to cycle again properly, after many years, due to their trikes for adults with disabilities.
