Benefits of the Kivo Plus tandem tricycle
“The great thing about the tandem trike is that we can secure Dorian on the bike and don’t have to step off the bike when we have to stop at a crossroad. The three wheels also provide stability, which is convenient considering his mobility, and you can easily cycle away.
The backrest and footrests are very useful because he cannot fall off the bike, and we can therefore accelerate without worrying. An additional advantage is that we can cycle backwards. This comes in very useful when you want to turn around, so you never have to get off. And the trendy colour makes the bike looks fantastic!
In fact, we have not yet experienced any negative effects of the Kivo Plus. However, in the beginning, you have to get used to the way you cycle. Because on a two-wheeled bicycle, you have to keep your balance in a different way. Therefore, we first made test rounds through the neighbourhood at a low speed. Now that we are used to it, this bike is great to ride. One disadvantage could be the size of the bike. Fortunately, we have enough room to store the bike, but it is quite large to carry around. You need a trailer if you want to take it with you on vacation. However, we do not experience this as a disadvantage of the bike itself; customized things are sometimes a bit more inconvenient than regular products. On a scale of 1 to 10, we give the bike a 10!"
