Smart-Trike has patented its new Swivel Wheel with 'Touch Steering'. 

The new Dream and Safari designs are the first in the collection to make use of this trike technology.

The Swivel Wheel with Touch Steering technology is "super-easy to manoeuvre, just like a premium stroller". 

The wheel promises to make it easy for parents to steer their baby around.

A statement read: "Not only does the new patented technology make it a much smoother ride but it provides two steering modes. 

"Mum and Dad can take control with the parent handle in the first stages while little ones can practice steering with the handlebar and pedals not activated. Once parents decide the time is right independent triking can begin. This is the ideal way to introduce tots to triking with the ultimate in safety and learning."

Director of Communications Nitzan Kadmon said: "We are so pleased that the Swivel Wheel is now patented. This really marks a turning point in the history of trikes.

"Pushchairs have long made use of the Swivel Wheel, and as our tricycles are suitable from such a young age, we felt it was something parents would truly appreciate.

"We hope the new developments make it even easier for families to enjoy the great outdoors aboard a tricycle."
