Product Description

Ride with your friends!

Most of us have fond memories of childhood bike rides. At Rifton we believe everyone deserves the chance to ride, especially someone with physical disabilities.

And thankfully, even insurers and other funding sources are beginning to recognize that for a person with disabilities, a trike is far more than merely recreational; an adaptive tricycle is often medically necessary for someone who cannot walk independently or who sits for long hours in a wheelchair.

The Benefits:

Therapeutic benefits of tricycling:

  • Lower extremity strengthening
  • Reciprocal leg motion patterning
  • Balancing skills
  • Using visual, spatial perception for steering
  • Social interaction with peers and neighbors

Benefits of using the Rifton Adaptive Tricycle:

  • No-tool adjustments
  • Our tricycles meet or exceed all ANSI safety standards for adaptive tricycles
  • Accessories such as the trunk support system and front or rear steering bar customize the tricycle to meet your child or client’s needs


Riding a bike is part of childhood, and this bike for children with special needs aims to provide that exhilarating experience to every child. We’ve thought through all the features – from the supportive backrest to the low transfer step – that will make this tricycle as accommodating as possible. Use the slides below to learn more about Rifton’s Adaptive Tricycles.

Choice of handlebar

rifton-tricycle-handlebars[1]Choose a traditional handlebar with conventional handgrips or a padded loop handlebar for extra support. Learn more about the features and benefits of these handlebars in the next slides.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-loopgrip[1]The foam-padded loop handlebar adjusts in height, and positions at any angle.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-loopknobs[1]Two oval knobs on the loop handlebar allow it to be set at the angle most comfortable for the user.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-loopheight[1]Loosening the oval knob on the steering column allows the handlebar to be raised and lowered. Tightening the knob locks it in place.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-loopbrake[1]The handbrake attaches anywhere on the foam-padded loop handlebar. The large adaptive Tricycle R140 comes with the handbrake installed. It is an optional accessory for the medium trike R130. A handbrake is not available with the small trike R120.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-convbrake[1]The handbrake comes with the large adaptive Tricycle R140. It is an optional accessory with the medium trike R130. A handbrake is not available with the small trike R120.

rifton-tricycle-handlebars-convgrip[1]The height-adjustable conventional handlebar for Rifton adaptive Tricycles has standard handgrips.

Easy access

rifton-tricycle-easy-access[1]Open access combined with a low transfer step makes it easy to get on and off Rifton adaptive trikes.

Hook & loop straps

rifton-tricycle-hooknloop-straps[1]With the hook and loop straps on the self-leveling pedals, feet are secure. Your client can ride unaided, and have healthy exercise and fun.

Parking brake

rifton-tricycle-parking-brake[1]The easily engaged parking brake grips both back wheels, and keeps the Rifton adaptive trike firmly in place.

Puncture proof wheels

rifton-tricycle-tires[1]Puncture proof BMX-type wheels. A low gear ratio makes pedaling easier for beginners, and slows down speeders.

Seat choices

rifton-tricycle-seats[1]Seats are made with comfort and safety in mind. The large R140 trike comes with the large seat. For the small R120 and medium R130 models, choose your size:

Small: 10″ wide x 10″ long
Large: 16″ wide x 12″ long

Storage box

rifton-tricycle-storage-box[1]There’s a tote box at the back of your trike for storage or for transporting items.


Carmakers believe in the long-term benefits of baked-on powder coating. So do we.

Designed to stand up to wind and weather, our colors also conform to American and European toy safety standards.

Our adaptive Tricycle is available in 4 colors: red, blue, lime and raspberry. This slide shows a red Tricycle; swipe or click the arrows to view the other colors.
