Who says kids get all the fun? Take the fun of riding a bike and toss in a basket—what you get is an adult trike that can be used to enjoy a stroll through the park or run a few errands. In other words: a Slsy Tricycle Three Wheeler, arguably the best adult tricycle for either occasion. It’s also suitable for those busy times when there are too many vehicles on the road and you need to get somewhere quickly.
The ideal way to run errands as an adult: a 7-speed Shimano gear for various terrain and an extra large basket for doing light grocery shopping.
Starting with gears, the Slsy Adult Tricycle comes with 7 speeds, unlike the single speed Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle and Mobo Recumbent Bicycle. This means you can cruise around on flat terrain or, when the occasion calls for it, switch to a different gear to take on a few inclines. It just so happens the Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle had some difficulty with steep inclines, unlike the Slsu Tricycle Three Wheeler.
With that said, the brakes on the Schwinn felt just a step better than the Slsy—but only by a very small margin. Shifting felt particularly good though, thanks to its trigger shifters and derailleur on the Slsy.
The Slsy Tricycle Three Wheeler trades in an aluminum frame for a tough steel frame. It makes it notably heavier but also supports a much higher weight limit of 320 lbs. This is obviously a three wheeled bike, with each of the three wheels using your standard 20 inch wheels. They have good traction. It has a particularly comfortable seat compared to other adult tricycles. Speaking of comfortable seat, you can protect your care seats from spills and damage with a good quality car seat protector (like the one in our Smart Elf Protector Thickest Non Slip review). Check it out!
An extra large basket is seated between the two back wheels that is so perfect for running errands and small grocery trips. Make sure your kids don’t sit in it though. More importantly, the bike can be folded. It’s a bit tricky at first, as is assembly. Videos are available to watch for tips and tricks, thankfully.
Unlike the Raleigh Tristar Tricycle, the Slsy Tricycle Three Wheel Bike proves that you can have a tough, high quality adult tricycle without paying an arm and a leg. Of course, $400 is still a somewhat hefty sum but you get to save gas and exercise, ultimately saving money down the road. In other words: it practically pays for itself. Given how well it handles shifting, overall performance, and strong frame, the Slsy Tricycle Three Wheeler gets our mark of excellent value.
The Slsy Tricycle Three Wheeler can be tough to assemble, but it’s well worth the effort. If you stick it out, you’ll assemble a high quality bike with 7 speeds that beautifully shifts between each gear. That goes a long way when you’re running errands, and the basket helps. And it hardly takes up space, thanks to its folding design.
