Hal Honeyman, founder of Creative Mobility, Executive Director of Project Mobility: Cycles for life, has spent the last 10 years fitting children and adults with disabilities all over the country on adaptive bikes. Hal is considered one of the country's leading authorities on adaptive cycling. Through this experience Hal realized a need. This need was left unfulfilled by other bikes on the market.
Thus the Versa Trike was born. In conjunction with David Black of Rad Innovations, the Versa Trike evolved into a trike that would work for a wide range of abilities.

We were given this bike for our son. He is 15 and has Autism. He can ride a two wheeler but has trouble focusing on steering and keeping the momentum up to stay up on a two wheeler. We found a Triton trike that steers with levers which was great for him and he adapted to it instantly but it's slow because it is a 20" direct pedal front tire similar to a Big Wheel. The Versa Trike provides him much more speed and he adapted to it with no problems. He now has the ability to ride with other bikes and go on trails. The bike is well built and made with quality parts. It is on the heavy side and it's large. But the benefits far outweigh the space it takes up. The best thing about this bike is that he now has a valid means of transportation that will accommodate him as an adult.
[...] We live in the Rockies and found we needed different tires. [...] I have MS and the motorize version is perfect for me. I peddle, get fatigued, initiate electric assistance, allows peddling to continue and gives me a chance to revive! First time I could ride a bike in over 20 years!
After a lifetime of sedentary living and no exercize I have finally found something that works for me. Thank you Versa Trike! I am a large person and riding a conventional bike was painful if not imposible. I also have bad knees but the Versa trike sits high enough, and with the tilting handle bar, it allows me to be able to get on and off easly. The seat is very comfotable and within the first week I was up to 10 miles a day. The only thing I would suggest is a larger gear ratio. I was surprised how quickly I gained strength once I began to ride and I found myself needing more gears. Since then I have moved to another tride that has more gears but the Versa Trike was more comfortable. If I had to do it over agian I would have put a Nuvinci gear system(21 speeds) on it and stayed with the Versa Trike.
