BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on Mobo Triton Pro. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • The Triton Pro was favored as a rehabilitation aid, by people suffering from back and neck problems.
  • Riders found this trike easy to adapt to and control.
  • The Triton Pro is adjustable, allowing it to be used by shorter and taller riders. It also suits growing children and teens.
  • Riders said the seat was comfortable and padding was ample.
  • This vehicle was great for riders with a disability, special needs or a balance impairment.
  • Assembly was often easy and instructions were ample. This took anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour. Some chose to follow the YouTube instructions. The trike comes with tools.
  • The adjustability of the Triton means that it can be partially collapsed for transport or storage.
  • Some owners said that they were too afraid to ride a bicycle. The Triton sidestepped this fear.
  • This trike comes provided with an orange safety flag, to assist visibility.
  • Multiple owners described the Triton as sturdy.
  • The price of the Triton was declared to be ‘reasonable’. It was seen as a cheap alternative for those that didn’t need a full recumbent.

18 reasons not to buy

  • Tires (especially the rear two) were reported to wear out quickly. They needed replacing in anywhere from two weeks to six months, or from thirty to sixty miles use.
  • Some complainants mentioned that the geometry didn’t provide for adequate back and neck support.
  • A major issue with the Triton is that it can’t be ridden up anything but the most moderate gradient. The front wheel loses traction and lifts off the ground on uphills.
  • The Triton has no gears. Both the manufacturer and riders say that it is intended for flat ground. It was regularly said to be undergeared and slow.
  • Some owners felt that this trike was overpriced.
  • There were issues with the alignment of the rear wheels, which led to problems with coasting. This necessitated ordering a custom part from the manufacturer.
  • Some folk felt that the saddle was thin and uncomfortable.
  • The Triton’s steel construction meant that it was quite heavy.
  • Because it’s low to the ground, invalid riders had difficulty mounting and unmounting the Triton.
  • The Triton’s turning-circle was reported to be quite wide.
  • A number of owners found the instructions difficult to follow.
  • Stickers and decals were said to be crooked and tacky. Some chose to remove them.
  • Packaging wasn’t always great. Damage included dented fenders, bent forks, missing screws and scratches.
  • Numerous owners were disappointed that warranties were only valid for thirty days.
  • In a number of instances, the screws holding the seat fell out.
  • Riders over 6’2” found the Triton unrideable. Those with large feet said that their heels dragged on the ground.
  • Some construction issues were apparent. Parts were welded incorrectly or upside-down, making the trike unusable.
  • The Triton suffered from poor traction, particularly on gravel, where the wheels spun-out.

Bottom line

Here is a human-powered vehicle that fits within a very specific niche. The Triton Pro was most appropriate for older riders, people with disabilities, those with special needs or individuals suffering or recovering from injuries. It was specifically mentioned that it was easy to ride for those who were autistic, epileptic or who suffered from multiple sclerosis. It was also suitable for riders with Down Syndrome, special needs or impaired balance. The elderly and chronically unfit used it as a low-impact rehabilitation aid. The Triton is a low-geared singlespeed tricycle and is not a replacement for a recumbent. Long-distances and hills are not an option.
