One of the latest equipment innovations for the fitness market is the adult tricycle. The adult trike has a number of advantages that make it extremely attractive – particularly for Baby Boomers who want to get outside and exercise, but are uncomfortable on a regular bicycle. Adult recumbent trikes place the rider in a lower position, adjacent to the wheels. The seat is designed much like a regular chair and often includes extra padding and lumbar support. As a result, the backside doesn’t suffer from pressure points and saddle sores, as with a regular bike, and there is no weight resting on the shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands – all areas that can suffer when riding an upright bike. The neck and back also benefit from this seated position, since the rider is not in a bent-over position. Instead, the spine and head are in an upright posture, and the neck does not have to strain to keep the head in position.
Regular upright adult tricycles provide better stability for adults who worry about falling.
