Efficient Pedalling Action - make it meaningful and rewarding Which Gear? Gearing is more complex than you might think and is not simply about ratios, but also involves wheel diameters, crank length and the quality of the wheels. Simply having too grippy or wide a tyre can have a bearing on how easy or hard a tricycle is to pedal. If you make the riders legs too splayed, this too can greatly effect efficiency. Our Product Specialists are trained to identify the most beneficial gearing.

RS GEA _____


We offer an easy gear option for each tricycle which may be suited to children with very low tone or for children who need to be restricted in their speed because of environmental constraints or limited cognitive awareness.

More Resistance = More Strength

If strength and conditioning is a key goal then it is sometimes better to have more resistance, this is when we would recommend a standard gear setup even if, initially, pedalling is more difficult.



Standard Fixed Wheel Hub Historically, Quest 88 Tricycles have been Fixed Wheel Tricycles – This means that as the pedals are turned, the rear drive wheel is turned and visa-versa. This creates added momentum when pedalling and this is beneficial to children with low tone and strength especially for children with Spastic Diplegia. There are other benefits to fixed wheel pedalling such as enabling children to pedal backwards to help with turning in tight spaces. It can also limit speed when selected with the easy gear option. The Fixed Wheel is fantastic for those children who cannot necessarily manage to pedal independently yet can still benefit from passive rotation of their hips, knees and ankles as someone pushes and/or steers the tricycle for them.

Quest 88 Switch Hub TM (Fixed and Freewheel option on the same bike)

Our Switch Hub TM option allows children to progress onto Free Wheel pedalling once they have established better rhythm and/or increased their stamina and strength.

Our new state of the art Switch Hub TM means that you can simply select whether to engage fixed or free pedalling*depending on wh without their legs turning.

The Switch Hub TM is also very useful for tricycles in schools or centres, allowing staff to easily select the best setting for different children. It is the best of both worlds.

Steering New! Handlebar fixing options

Quest 88 Gripmits

Quest 88 Tricycles now have two fixing options for handlebars:-

Gripmits are a positive and comfortable way of maintaining grip. They come in a range of sizes and are designed for those who:

Position 1- This is the standard handlebar position which allows steering of the tricycle.

1. 2. 3.

Position 2- This is a locked steering position and this can be used when a child is tired and doesn’t not want to move their arms or have them moved.


This position is also very useful when behaviour may be an issue and a child begins to resist someone using the rear

Twin Grip Handlebars This is a very useful feature and enables children to move their hands inwards/outwards to control steering whilst maintaining good sitting balance.

The Gripmits updated design includes an additional strap for the crease of the palm to control sideways movement and a pocket for more positive finger location. You can use these features to achieve the best control for you.

Carer Control

- several

ways you can interact, protect and encourage young riders.

Carer Control Combi Rod System

With this option, we supply both front and rear connectors with an interchangeable rod.

Front: Pull Rod

Carer Control System:

The pull rod attaches near the handlebars and enables carers to have total control of the speed and direction of the rider whilst maintaining eye contact.

(Giving you piece of mind) Rear: Push Rod

Intuitive and reliable steer options for parents and carers.

The push rod is connected to the rear of the frame and is useful in assisting the rider (or restrain them) whilst the rider is steering for themselves.

Switch Hub™ - select fixed or free wheel pedalling. Carer Rear Steer

Pedalling and Steering opt-out for tired legs and hands. Steering Limiter - to prevent sharp turns. 9

The Rear Steer System is designed for the carer who can assist the rider who needs aid with their steering. With the reassurance of the Rear Steer System, the rider gains confidence and easily adapts to the tricycle. The Rear Steer System can also be used for slowing down the rider.

Anti Finger Trap

All Quest 88 tricycles can be accessorised with wheel discs for extra added safety. Wheel spokes can cause finger trapping.

Foot & Ankle Control Whether it is choosing the right crank length, the positioning of the calf support or a frame design which prevents extreme abduction – Quest 88 believes that correct alignment and foot positioning is key to maintaining an efficient pedalling and achieving good upper body symmetry. It is these details that set our tricycles apart and why a full assessment is crucial to addressing your child’s unique needs.

Standard System


Toe Cage and Bungee Heel Straps

Hase Special Pedals

For children who require less support; bungee heel straps are a great way to ensure a good foot location whilst at the same time give the rider greater feel and independence.

Suitable for the Colt, Carousel and Panther Tricycles, These advanced Hase Special Pedals can be adjusted from a UK 13 Shoe Size to a UK adult 15 1/2. This means that they can be transferred onto future trikes as the child grows.

Quest 88 Standard Footplates and Standard AFO Footplates

Quest 88 has used this style of footplate for over 25 years and it never lets us down; providing positive foot positioning and a sturdy construction. These are available in a range of sizes and are suitable for all Quest 88 Therapy Tricycles.

The foot angle can also be adjusted. Once all adjustments have been made, the straps can be easily fastened and released with one hand. The foot is held comfortably and securely in the best position possible.

Hase Calf Supports

The Hase Calf Support is designed to be used with the Hase Special Pedals. Its unique and ingenious structure provides firm support for the leg but enables the ankle to flex naturally, allowing for a circular pedaling motion.

Quest 88 Standard Calf/ Ankle Supports.

These are used in conjunction with Quest 88 Standard AFO Footplates and control the footankle relationship - to prevent foot drop whilst pedalling. These supports also prove to be a more effective alternative to saddle pommels found on other trikes; controlling adduction/ abduction. They come in a range of stem lengths and cuff widths and fit just below the knee on the tibial tuberosity rather than on the soft tissue on the calf.

Advanced System

This freedom of movement is made possible by an adjustable elastomer spring [see FIG.1]
