The Colt/Carousel Tricycle is our most popular fixed wheel trike and combines just the right mix of frame weight (for safety); positioning that promotes good posture; and gearing which delivers meaningful exercise.
The Colt/Carousel Tricycle is suitable for children from approximately 4 to 7 years of age (ages based on clothing sizes).
The Colt/Carousel Tricycle is a fixed drive tricycle. In simple terms, this means that as the pedals rotate, the drive wheel rotates and vice versa. This creates added momentum which assists pedalling and is beneficial to children with low muscle tone and strength; an ideal tricycle for children with Cerebral Palsy (Spastic Diplegia).
The Colt/Carousel Tricycle has a low step through for easier access, pneumatic tyres for a more comfortable ride and spoke free wheels for easy maintenance and to avoid finger traps. It's chainguard is also fully enclosed.
All Quest tricycles feature a coaster/drive rear wheel combination to make steering and cornering more stable.
Optional accessories include hip and thoracic supports, footplate(sandals), ankle foot orthoses, chest pad, steering solutions, various handlebar styles, and head pad.
The key datum points on Quest tricycles are critical and give the rider the ability to maintain a good posture and an efficient pedalling action. Quest tricycles can be separated into 3 parts for storage and transportation.
