The wheelchair is safely secured on the bike with a wheelchair locking mechanism and a seat belt. The low centre of gravity and the wide wheelbase in the front give the bike its stability. This makes the bike an ideal solution for making bike rides with wheelchair users.

  • Tilting platform to easily load the wheelchair and passenger onto
  • Stable and easily manoeuvrable due to the steering front wheels
