3. Good view of the child

With this three-wheel tandem, the child is always in front. This gives the child a good view of the road, the traffic and the surrounding. Because the parent or accompanying person is sitting behind the child, they also have a good view of the child itself. In addition, only the person behind can steer the tandem and is therefore in full control.
