Stability

Known disadvantage of many retro tricycles is their problem with stability – for example the Radio Flyer Classic has a seat quite high above the ground which can cause it to tip over when turning too quickly. Schwinn used a different kind of design here. The seat is bigger and much more closer to the ground which creates very low center of gravity and prevents tip-overs.

Also the rear wheels are so wide from each other – a real cruiser. We must say this trike is really stable, even in higher speeds.

     

Construction

Solidly built metal frame is used which makes the Roadster very sturdy and hard to damage – but creates a little disadvantage as well – it`s slightly heavier than other trikes.

Your kid will love those many fancy things that are present – shiny silver fenders, chrome handlebars (with padded grips), long tassels and nice ringing bell. The seat is comfortable and adjustable as well and there is also a wooden back deck for added passenger.

Smooth ride is provided by real rubber tires – front wheel has 12 inches in diameter, rear wheels 8.

It is available in three color variations: red, blue or pink.

Recommended age

There has been a debate what`s the right recommended age of the Schwinn Roadster (as there appeared a mistake on the covers). From hundreds of customer reviews we can say that the best age when to start with it is from 2 to 3 years. At 2 years most children won`t probably reach the pedals yet – but most customers say their kids love the trike anyway and use their feet to push themselves (the seat is really low so it`s not a problem) until they`re able to pedal.
