Adaptive Tricycle

Completely Re-imagined.

New Medium and Large Design

At Rifton we believe everyone deserves the chance to ride. Biking is more than just recreational; it’s therapeutic. We know the health benefits that come with cycling, especially for children with disabilities – improved leg strength, posture, balance and range of motion. We’ve also seen how it helps their socialization, their engagement with friends and family. Adaptive tricycles help non-ambulatory people experience the joy and freedom of independent movement.

In the forty years that we’ve been making adaptive tricycles, we’ve sought continually to make our designs more accessible and functional. The new Rifton Adaptive Tricycle brings our experience and your input together with cutting-edge materials and technology to create the ultimate ride. It is sleek, rugged, adaptable and a whole lot of fun.

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 biking:

  • Lower extremity strengthening
  • Reciprocal leg motion patterning
