Italian designers have pulled out all the stops with this revolutionary tricycle design. New to the US market, the “OKO Tricycle” brings together design, comfort, safety, and ergonomics to satisfy difficult-to-please 2 to 5 year-olds — and their even more difficult-to-please parents.

“This is one of those rare products that will completely change the way we look at the category” says Maine-based direct marketer and dad, Mark Eidsness, founder of sparkability.com, a website selling toys and modern furnishings for kids. “OKO is going to do for trikes what the Bugaboo did for strollers or what the Aeron Chair did for task seating.”

The “OKO” conforms to European and American safety standards with features such as a 3-point harness safety belt, lever brake on the front wheel, and 45-degree right and left topple-proof steering stop. All this guarantees even more safety for your child. The nine adjustments for the seat and handlebar guarantee an ideal position for children. The seat adjustment follows a 45-degree inclination to provide versatility and comfort. The unique positioning of both the handlebars and pedals, which are not on the front wheel, allow comfort for the biggest or littlest of riders.

The OKO project was conceived from a study of child ergonomics. The cradle shaped frame helps mounting because there is no crossbar or anything else to overcome. Extra large wheels with pliable tires, ample padded seat, windowed sun shade with flexible removable frame, which shelters both the sun and rain, are unique features that provide comfort for the little one. For the parent, a horseshoe-shaped push-bar and steering lock give both control and comfort when using the trike with smaller children. Plus, the trike comes in a sassy orange color to please everyone.
