  • Standard two-wheeled bikes for children and adults
  • Children’s balance bikes
  • A Platform bike – for wheelchair users
  • A Wheelchair bike – a regular bike with a wheelchair attached

  • A double-hand cycle for two and single-hand cycles – for those who have difficulty using pedals
  • A Quad cycle – a fixed pedal, low speed very stable bike
  • Recumbent tricycles – more stable than regular trikes, with added back support
  • Tricycles – large, medium and small 3-wheelers
  • Tiny trikes – suitable for younger children, one with back support
