There are so many buggies to choose from, but which one is right for you? Here are the main styles you'll see on shelves and online...
A 3-wheeler buggy has one wheel at the front and two at the back of the chassis. The front wheel is free to swivel or can be locked, so that the buggy goes in a straight line. There are several types of 3-wheeler that vary in size, weight and potential use: all-terrain pushchairs (ATPs); urban 3-wheelers; 3-wheeler travel systems and twin or tandem 3-wheelers.A 3-wheeler is generally easy to steer and manoeuvre (thanks to that front swivel wheel) but some can be wide and bulky, especially those designed for off-road use. A minor problem is that when you try and mount a kerb, the single front wheel can swivel sideways and send you off track. It doesn’t happen if you’ve locked the front wheel but doing this makes it harder to steer.
Our buyer's guide to 3-wheeler buggies will take you step by step through buying the right one.
