There is a range of different adaptive mountain bikes out there. Some have three wheels, some have four. Some can be pedaled by your arms, some by your feets. Some have throttle operated motor, some have electric assist and some completely rely on gravity. Common to all; they are made to take you oft the road, on to the trails and into the woods and mountains. They will all provide you with fantastic nature experiences and a lot of fun!!!
This list is probably not complete, but it is a list of the adaptive mountain bikes we are aware of on the commercial marked. We have tried to only include bikes with full suspension. You might argue that some of the bikes on this list is not a bike. We are open for discussion! Please contact us if you know about an adaptive mountain bike not on this list. They are listet in alphabetical order.
