At first glance the idea of riding one’s way back to health may seem farfetched. However what we now know and may not have expected is that exercise is key to regaining and strengthening legs and gaining knee flexibility after knee surgery. The Mobo®Triton Pro is just the cycle for those recovering from knee surgery, and anyone with a back or neck issue. Its ergonomic designed seat adds minimal pressure to the back. It’s dual-joystick steering system and free-wheel mechanism offers smooth maneuverability and gentle wrist, elbow and hand pressure. For those who a looking for an outdoor cycle the Mobo®Triton Pro is the perfect rehab and fun cycle! Don’t be bored cycling indoors for rehab. Riding outside in the fresh air clears the mind and gets rid of cobwebs!
It turns out to be also great for those whose eye is on completing a century ride, as my experience with Donna and Wes demonstrates!
Donna, Wes and I were the unlikely trio for completing the century ride. Wes was over fifty-five, a good 50 lbs over his target weight and had back problems. Donna and I, while much junior and in great shape were leisure riders who had never biked more than 40 miles in a day. Wes was riding the Mobo® Triton Pro Mobito recumbent bike while we rode standard road bikes.
Throughout the very long and exciting day, Wes consistently demonstrated incredible stamina evidenced by his encouraging smiles and words that we could do it. The comfort of riding with back support and legs in front enabled his “easy riding” style. Three-wheel stability allowed Wes to focus on being social and our leader. From his comfortable seat Wes became our coach, inspiring us to reach beyond the comfort zone of our habitual placid riding outings. He led us into a new phase of leisure riding on the Mobo® Triton Pro which has all of the qualities you look for in a leisure cycle with the low, rugged chassis of something sportier.
Mobo® Mobito is the model designed especially for kids and has all the great features of the adult model as it was designed first! Now the entire family can take advantage of cycling even if they can’t balance on a two-wheeler.
Donna, Wes and I did finish the century ride. It took us a lot longer than everyone else in the club. We did it in 13 hours and 17 minutes. Had Donna and I ridden the Mobo® Triton Pro I’m sure we would have finished in less time and in better condition.
