Wavebreaker

Wavebreaker
Wavebreaker® is a tandem for parents with a disabled child.

 A Wavebreaker tandem gives the family an increased feeling of freedom in the sense that Wavebreaker® allows the whole family to go on trips a bit further from their home than earlier. Wavebreaker® can be folded for transport on the back of a car and it is therefore ideal for parents, who doesn't want their child's disability to limit them if it can be avoided.

Wavebreaker® has the unique feature that it can be folded to fit on a special bicycle rack on the back of a car. Being able to bring the tandem for example when the family goes on vacation is a great advantage. The tandem is folded by parking it on the y-stand, unlocking a small fastener and unhitching the front end of the tandem. The front end is fastened to the back and the tandem is ready to go. Wavebreaker® is easily hung on the back of the car when the family goes on a trip. The unique bicycle rack for Wavebreaker® is also obtainable from Meyland-Smith.

Wavebreaker® is available with 7 gears and comes in two colours, metallic red or black. The front part of the frame fits children from around the age of 3 (approx. 80 cm tall) to small adults (approx. 165 cm tall) just by changing the seat pin. This is due to the fact that Wavebreaker® has a unique bracket that makes it possible to raise the front crank so the required "leg length" is shortened.

Wavebreaker®has a unique bracket that makes it further height adjustable.  It is possible to further fit the tandem  for small children by adding pedal arm shorteners.

Due to a wide variety of accessories Wavebreaker® can be fitted the needs of each individual child. The accessories consist of: back support with strap, PVC back support with strap, foot sandals with straps and optional calf support, counterweights for foot sandals, pedal arm shorteners, freewheeling front crank axle and a special bicycle rack for the car.
