    Tomcat Bionic Buddy

    The world’s first “e-drive” for Carer Supervised (Carer Controlled) trikes.

    ONLY £1195

    Give your legs the “BIONIC” boost you’ve always wanted to tackle the highest hills, deepest dales and toughest trails, thanks to “Bionic Buddy”, Tomcats brilliant new e-drive for Carer Supervised Tomcat Trikes.  When the going gets tough – “Bionic Buddy” keeps you going.

    About Bionic Buddy.

    Bionic Buddy is a power drive accessory, suitable for most Carer Controlled trikes in the Tomcat range and it can be retrofitted to most Tomcats built after June 2016*.

    Unlike conventional power-assisted trikes (where pedalling controls the power), Bionic Buddy is directly controlled by a hand throttle operated by the carer.   Because Bionic Buddy’s maximum speed is regulated to a brisk walking speed, it is fully compliant with UK law and can be used on public pathways.

    How it works

    Bionic Buddy works by bringing a tiny but powerful motorised wheel in contact with the tricycles driving wheel.  When the carer twists the throttle of the steering/braking control arm, the motor drives the trike along at any chosen speed between 0 and 3 mph.

    When the e-drive feature is not needed, for example when the rider wants to ride the trike in the conventional way, Bionic Buddy can be instantly disengaged until needed once more.  Being a detachable accessory, it can also be “quick released” from the vehicle when not required.

    • Ideally suited to limited strength, stamina, heart weakness or degenerative conditions.
