Please explain how you attach/remove the item from your wheelchair or scooter:
Option 1 -
Put brakes on the wheelchair, slide attachment bracket into 2 side clamps on your wheelchair and tighten. Remove header bolt on bracket and wheel so you locate the TriRide bracket onto header bolt. Insert header bolt and tighten.
Put in reverse and press accelerator slowly so wheel goes backwards and lifts front wheels of the chair up, locate the TriRide bracket and twist locator screw on left of the TriRide 1/4 (sprung bolt) pin will lock in, then tighten second bolt between knees. MAKE SURE ALL BOLTS ARE TIGHT. Ready to go!

Option 2 -
Leave bracket attached to TriRide. If so, leave located on the Stand. Undo side clamps and wheel forward, locate bracket into the clamps to required length and tighten clamp bolts (tight)
Put brakes on, remove stand and put in reverse. Reverse slowly until front wheels of the chair are off the ground, then locate the TriRide bracket and flick left pin locator 1/4 turn to lock the bracket into main bracket. Tighten bolt between knees. TIGHTEN ALL BOLTS, TIGHT. Ready to roll once brakes off!

Personal Opinion:

Huge benefits for me, as it gives me independence when needed. Pop out with kids on theirs scooter, walk the dogs with my wife. It can also go off road (grass and uneven ground).
This is a single wheel powered adapter for most wheelchairs, it lifts front wheels up to make a three wheeler. Normal 14’ bike wheel with drum brakes. Even charges battery when going down hill, but use the brake!

Excellent design, reasonably lightweight. There are many models. You can customise them now, unlike when I purchased. Many colours and additional things like baskets etc. I do have the protective carry bag, expensive but worth it. These attachments are extremely quick, so you do need to learn to ride them. But it’s been great for holidays etc, trips round London. Turning circle is outstanding. Very easy to maintain. Parts are easily available. Advice is available from Max wheelchairs and also TriRide.

Events in Italy (the country of origin) are issued when you have a wheelchair (wheelchair services), it’s massive product in Italy. We hope to be sorting a TriRide ride out, where we all meet and ride out for fun. A pleasurable tool. A great product for everyone. Stylish and very uptodate looking.


DOWNSIDES - Quite expensive, but I feel worth every penny. Everyone wants to have a go and for me I need extra weights on front axle, due to having no weight on front as I have no legs.
