New SDMotion Trike all terrain power chair, combines the quality and all terrain durability of the Mountain Trike wheelchair and the proven SDMotion power system.
A new partnership between the Mountain Trike Company and Steering Developments Ltd sees the launch of the SDMotionTrike – a brand new fully electric powered, joystick controlled, off road wheelchair.
The new product is being unveiled on Wednesday 22nd March 2023 at Naidex Mobility Expo at the NEC in Birmingham. Visitors attending the show will find it on the Mountain Trike stand (H41) and anyone interested will be able to demo the SDMotion Trike on the test track at the show. Naidex is known for showcasing innovative mobility products and the SDMotion Trike certainly fits into this category.
The SDMotion Trike has plenty of unique key features, it is fully electric controlled with an easy to use joystick which can be mounted to either the left or right hand side.
Standard fittings include a lithium-ion battery which offers a range of approx 18 miles and off-road 26” tyres provide an excellent performance over a variety of uneven terrains. The robust Mountain Trike frame with its proven track record of outstanding off-road performance makes this partnership the perfect match to bring this innovative product to market and allow even more wheelchair users access to the great outdoors.
Talking about the new product, Tim Morgan, Managing Director at Mountain Trike says, “the SDMotion Trike has been in development for a good 18 months so I am super excited to see the product launch. Both myself and Jeff Adams from Steering Developments have an engineering background and have many years of experience working with niche mobility products so getting the product right from an engineering and end user point of view has been key and why we’ve taken time to bring it to market. For us at Mountain Trike adding this fully powered, joystick controlled, all terrain wheelchair compliments our existing wheelchair range. Helping people get outdoors, despite ability, has always been our ethos and the addition of the SDMotion Trike will enable a wider range of users with a variety of abilities enjoy the outdoors.”
Tim continues, “I’m excited about this new partnership with Steering Developments, our organisations are very aligned and bringing the Mountain Trike together with the SDMotion kit is the perfect combination for this innovative new product.”
Grant Harbour, Managing Director at Steering Developments Ltd said “we are very excited that this new partnership between MT and SDL has meant the SD Motion range has taken a new step forward. Since our first visit to Japan in 1999, these high quality power add on systems have allowed thousands of users to experience freedom in going to new places. Now we look forward to seeing the new SDMotion Trike in use up and down the country and beyond places users have gone before.”
The SDMotion Trike is easy to use, can be folded into a cube and has quick release wheels for easy transport, it weighs 37 kg (without the battery) which is light for an electric wheelchair.
It comes in a wide range of colours and customised adaptations are available. Comfort and safety is key with rock shox air shock absorbers, electromagnetic brakes and manual safety brakes, highly efficient brushless motors with built-in braking function, various seating options with moulded comfort cushions and adjustable footplate.
The model is currently only available for sales in the UK with a RRP of £11,950, it comes with a 3 year warranty (1 year on battery and power system).
