Fatwheels Training Wheels

wheels

Training wheels have been in use for decades, primarily as a training aid for small children, to help them with balance as they learn to ride. We have learned, through personal experience, that traditional training wheels are too small and weak to be an effective tool, even for small children. 

We have also found that small children are not the only people who need training wheels. Older, larger children (and adults) who have never learned to ride find them useful. In many cases, people with special needs, both young and old, find Fatwheels training wheels nothing short of liberating! Many people with Down Syndrome, Autism, and cerebral palsy, for example, have found that Fatwheels have opened new doors for outdoor recreation, which has resulted not only in physical improvements, but mental and emotional advancements as well.
