We are pleased to announce that product designer Mr. Eiji Shibata won a Good Design Award for the design of TRINITY DRIVE's handbike.

Designed with Vectorworks, this handbike is a big hit in Japan and has been featured on a variety of TV programs, as it realizes a physically challenged person's dream of riding a stylish bike and moving comfortably around town.

After testing the original concept with physically challenged persons, the design was modified and the weight of the bike was reduced. As a matter of fact, our own CEO, Sean Flaherty, had the opportunity to test drive the bike while visiting A&A, our Japanese distributor, last year.
