The BerkelBike Pro is a unique combination hand and recumbent cycle that offers a variety of benefits to individuals with limited mobility due to spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, amputations, MS, and neuromuscular diseases. It was developed in cooperation with physicians, therapists and researchers from rehabilitation centers in the Netherlands, and is used in physiotherapy programs that work to help patients regain strength and motion in impaired legs.
“You can just tell it was designed by people who love bikes.”
- Maria Jeanne Dompierre, EVOlution rider & recumbent bike blogger
The ultimate in recumbent design from Hase Bikes
Hase takes their Kettwiesel recumbent trike to the next level with the EVOlution, providing superior comfort and performance with the ultimate combination of design and componentry.
We love hearing stories from happy customers! We recently heard from Charles and Denise of Granby, Quebec, who love their Hase Bikes Pino.
We are delighted to announce that RAD-Innovations will be supporting handcyclists and other adaptive bike riders at the 12th Annual Kelly Brush Ride in Middlebury, Vermont on September 9, 2017. The event is attended by hundreds of cyclists and dozens of handcyclists every year and promises to be a great day!
At Rad-Innovations, we work hard to provide mobility solutions that allow individuals with special needs to get out and enjoy all that life has to offer. We’re excited to offer the Uni-Roller (also known as the X-Jogger), an all-terrain special needs push chair/stroller for children and adults with physical disabilities.
Push chairs have a number of mobility advantages that bulkier wheelchairs don’t - including lighter weight, compact folding design, and better stability on uneven terrain.
The Uni-Roller is one of the most compact and lightest weight special needs push chairs on the market. It’s designed to stand alone as a comfortable push chair with a fabric sling seat, or to integrate with positional seating systems such as Tumble Forms, SnugSeat/R82, Special Tomato, Thomashilfen, and others. The Uni-Roller has been offered in Europe since 2002 and has passed EN standards and CE certification.
The Uni-Roller folds up quickly for easy travel and storage. The large wheels and performance tires allow you to travel smoothly on most surfaces, and offer one and two front wheel configurations for optimal indoor and outdoor performance.
Cycling is an incredibly popular way to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise, but not everyone can easily ride a traditional bicycle. That’s where adaptive bikes come to the rescue!
What is an adaptive bike?
Simply put, adaptive cycles are bikes that are modified to fit the needs of an individual rider. We all have different abilities and challenges, and there are a wide variety of ways that a bicycle or tricycle can be modified to make cycling possible (and fun!) for anyone. At RAD-Innovations, we specialize in matching you with an adaptive bike that will make cycling enjoyable and safe for you for years to come.
Rad-Innovations is proud to be a supporter of the Vermont Gran Fondo!
"Gran Fondo" is Italian for long distance or great endurance. The 2017 Vermont Gran Fondo is this Saturday, July 1st. It starts and ends at the Woodchuck Cider House on Exchange Street in Middlebury, and offers three beautifully scenic and challenging routes in between. When you're done, you can relax at the après ride party, meet fellow cyclists, and cheer the returning riders.
Rad-Innovations will once again be attending the Long Trail Century Ride to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. This year the event offers 100, 60, 40 or 20 mile routes, a family friendly 5K, and mountain biking. There's also an apres ride party with live music, food and fun kids activities at the Long Trail brewery in Bridgewater Corners, VT.
The ride is Saturday, June 24th, starting at the Snowshed Base Lodge at Killington Resort in Killington, VT.
Anja will be wielding her trusty wrench to help riders get their bikes, trikes and other equipment rolling. If you see her, be sure to stop and say hello!
Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports works to empower people of all abilities through inclusive sports and recreational programming, regardless of ability to pay.
Tricycles are a wonderful tool for getting exercise, getting outdoors, leaving the car parked or even getting off the beaten path. They offer much greater stability than a two-wheeled bike, and with modern technology, are more fun, fast and safer than ever before. But now that you’ve decided a trike might be your next ride, you’ll have to choose between tadpole and delta designs. But when it comes to tadpole vs. delta trikes, which is right for you?
Both common designs, tadpole and delta, have unique characteristics and benefits. Let’s explore both in more detail.
