The Dirt King® Child Tricycle
is built tough and rides like no other, heralded by day care centers and parents as ‘the world’s best tricycle!”
- The Dirt King® is virtually indestructible, equipped with all terrain pneumatic tires mounted on heavy-duty steel rims with 5/8” steel ball bearings.
- The adjustable seat and tilting handlebars allow the tricycle to adapt to your growing youngster for years of thrills and healthy fun and exercise.
- Rugged ground is no match for the Dirt King®! Typical, solid-tire tricycles are difficult to maneuver on uneven terrain. Dirt King® uses air-filled floatation tires that make old and uneven sidewalks and gravel yards feel like just another lazy Sunday drive.
- If you are tired of frail and little wimpy tricycles it’s time to move on up to the smooth riding Dirt King® Child Tricycle; it’s the tricycle your kids will pass on to their grandkids!
The Dirt King® is ideal for parents who are looking for their first outdoor child tricycle. The traditional child tricycle is usually of simple design, constructed of either plastic or wood. The Dirt King® is constructed of 14 and 16 gauge hand welded steel, powder coated and engineered tough to withstand the test of time so it can be passed on to future generations. The Dirt King® design positions the adjustable seat higher than the rear wheels and slightly below the front wheel. The over-sized and air-filled tires combined with 5/8” steel ball bearings are designed to roll over any terrain, providing a smooth ride that makes riding on gravel, grass, and uneven sidewalks a breeze. The over-sized front wheel, similar to the popular “big wheel”, is utilized to improve maneuverability for smaller children. The Dirt King®, like most child tricycles, employs no mechanical brake and uses the tried and true braking method of putting your feet down on the ground to stop.Specifications:

Buy Tricycle Review
The Buy Tricycle Review covers the differences to buying the right tricycle for your child and youngster. If you are thinking to buy a tricycle or a Dirt King Tricycle in particular, we’re going to explain the differences between trike products- which you will find are many.
**Buy Tricycle Tip 1- Usually when purchasing a tricycle, it is always suggested to buy a tricycle that is the correct size for your child, rather than something they will grow into. Dirt King offers an adjustable seat mount and modular trike design that allows your child to ride a Dirt King into adulthood and to be adjusted back down again for smaller children.
First Tricycle- 16 Months to 3 Years
A tricycle is normally used to teach a child two basic skills- steering and pedaling.
If you have ever watched a child on a tricycle for the first time, you will see that they are learning how to steer. They will not be going anywhere but simply moving the steering handles back and forth which is the first step. Once the basic movement of steering has been mastered, they will begin to use their legs to push their trike around. Now comes the fun part of either the parent helping their child pushing the pedals for them or the child starting on his own. We have now entered the first real experience of riding for the first time.
The Dirt King childrens tricycle has a wide wheel base and sits low to the ground. At the time of this writing, there is not a bucket seat available but we may offer one soon. What we do offer is a steel frame design that is virtually indestructible, offering a tricycle that is safer and more durable than the standard bucket seat trike’s made of plastic or wood.
Best Thing To Do…
If you can, take your child with you to check the size of the tricycle, with Dirt King, the seat is adjustable and may not work only for the smallest of children. Even if you have the seat all the way up, the wide wheel base will normally keep it from tipping over.
**Buy Tricycle Tip 2- The majority of younger children tricycles are built to remain indoors, because they are so low to the ground that they cannot be seen by cars, making them susceptible to cars in the drive way. The Dirt King is best suited for the outdoors and has been family tested by the letters we received claiming its indestructibility. You may lose a wheel but the Dirt King frame has weathered the test. The frame alone has been tested at our manufacturing site to exceed 250 lbs.
2 to 6 Year Olds
The majority of childrens tricycles are aimed at this age group. If you are looking for a particular style, the Dirt King offers a rugged and sturdy look with a smooth ride to conquer any terrain that stands in its way. Plastic tricycles are more suited for the younger children as the weight of an older child can tip a lighter trike. The Dirt King Tricycle is hand welded and constructed of heavy duty 14 and 16 gauge steel.
What To Look For…
You want to find a trike that has wheels with tread for better traction, plastic wheels tend to slip and slide. Dirt King offers all terrain pneumonic tires with deep tread equipped with 5/8 inch ball bearings that delivers a very smooth ride. Dirt King comes with padded and adjustable handle bars and an adjustable seat for more comfort.
**Buy Tricycle Tip 3- Before you make a final purchase, pick out a suitable bike helmet. A tricycle, or any bike for that matter, should be accompanied by a helmet.
7 to 10 Year Olds
This is where Dirt King stands alone. Due to the engineered modular design, the heavy duty tricycle for children (ages 3 to 6) can be upgraded to allow your youngster to continue to ride for another 3 to 4 years and beyond. If you are having a hard time getting your youngster outdoors, the Big Kids Tricycle look and ride is sure to win them over.
**Buy Tricycle Tip 4- Health studies have shown that pedaling for just 6 hours a week can help fight off disease and promote health. The Dirt King Tricycle is sure to motivate your youngster to get outside and ride a trike that is sure to impress.
