The innovative and modern trike Triceratops is designed for everyone. It can easily be accessed by persons with movement restrictions. Furthermore, only three steps are necessary to fold the trike down to half of its size which facilitates the transportation by car or bus. In a team of three designers, we designed the vehicle in cooperation with the "Bayerisches Mobilitätszentrum" (Center for agility, Bavaria).
Folding down in three steps
Step 1: folding the handlebar
Step 2: folding the seat
Step 3: transforming the trike into a trolley
Universal design and transportation
The ergonomic seat was chosen to be of the same height as a standard chair. This ensures a barrier-free entry and dismount and improves vision and safety in road traffic. The design of the frame guarantees a comfortable legroom and ground contact.
The frame can be folded up into two different positions. In the first, it can be transported on three wheels. Thus, no weight has to be carried on long distances.
The second position - the trolley position - is particularly suitable for transportation on bus and car.
