LAKS3 / Innovative Trike


LAKS3 is a trike for adults. The drive chain is mounted on the side, which makes a seating position with a very low balance point possible. Due to two cardan joints in the steering spindle the vehicle can be driven like a car while the handling is still very direct as of ordinary bicycles.
Instead of a saddle it has a canvas chair cover and broad fenders that form armrests.
LAKS3 can be put on the rear wheels in order to take it with you into small elevators - however, if you rather want to leave it standing outside, the textile seat can be removed and fixed again easily via tension belts.
