Is Zigo good for Special Needs children?

Many people ask if the Zigo Leader Carrier Bike is good for special needs children, and if it makes a good special needs stroller. The answer, of course, depends on the specific details of your special needs child, but the answer for many families is 'Yes'.

For example, see this example of a family with special needs children using the Zigo Leader Carrier Bike.

The advantages of the the Zigo Leader for special needs children are:

  • Using the Zigo Leader as a carrier bike, your special needs child is always in front, where you can see, touch, control, and comfort. You do not have the concerns of risking a special needs child in a conventional, trail behind bike trailer.
  • With the Zigo Leader Carrier Bike System, you do not need to make transfers from trailer to wheelchair. For example, ride your child someplace with the Zigo Leader then simply uncouple the ChildPod from the Cycle and you have a stroller. No more inconvenient transfers.
  • Putting the stroller in front of the bike means plenty of visual stimulation for your child.

Please find a Zigo dealer near you and take a Zigo Leader for a test ride with your special needs child.  We are sure that once you try one, you will be riding a Zigo Leader with your children frequently.
