The Alinker is a striking walking bike, ideal for people that want to maintain an active lifestyle but who do not want to use a traditional rollator.
The Alinker is designed to let the saddle effectively carry the rider’s weight, leaving legs free to move with a high degree of freedom to propel the bike, both forwards and backwards. The upright design enables the rider to maintain near-full height, so when interacting with other people, the rider is doing so at the same eye level.
The bike can be propelled with minimal effort with one or both legs, making it an alternative to a wheelchair for amputees and riders with a degree of mobility in one leg, for example, or for wheelchair users that retain some ambulatory mobility. It is also increasingly being used by people without disabilities for low-impact exercise to maintain or build muscle condition and thus defer the onset of reduced mobility.
Clearly, the Alinker is designed to look as good as it handles. Indeed, it’s certainly difﬁcult to ignore the unconventional frame shape and banana yellow ﬁnish – and in this way, the Alinker is challenging assumptions about disabled people.
Pyxis is the exclusive distributor and retailer of the Alinker walking bike across the whole of the UK.
