Comfort Like other KMX trikes, the K-3 features the comfortable, hardshell KMX bucket seat. The sides and bottom of the seat extend upward, a feature intended for comfort and safety. Because of the way the seat cradles the rider, it is more secure when cornering hard. The seat frame is steel, with foam padding, and a black breathable mesh cover that keeps riders cool and comfortable.
Adjustability Thanks to the adjustability of the K-3, you can easily fit it to a variety of smaller riders. You can share it between kids without getting frustrated with adjustment. There are two quick-release clamps that allow the seat to slide easily along the frame. The manufacturer rated rider weight is 145 lbs, and it will carry any rider thatís approximately four feet tall.
Steering and Handling
Like all other KMX models, the K-3 uses Ackerman-compensated, direct steering. Something unique about the K-3 are the model-specific steering components that provide for responsive handling. The steering geometry gives the K-3 a heavy ride thatís classic of the KMX brand, and the sealed ball bearings gives smooth, uninterrupted control. The predictable and durable handling of the K-3 makes it ideal for younger riders.
The drivetrain featured on the K-3 is hassle-free and low-maintenance which makes a relief for parents and grandparents, and perfect for kids. The 38T sprocket and 125mm one piece crank paired with the 2-speed, 24T - 18T rear cassette is perfect for kids cruising around the neighborhood or keeping up with family on the trail. Itís also geared low enough to get up hills so no one will be falling behind.
As a concerned parent or grandparent, youíll probably be curious about the stopping power of the K-3. Never fear, KMX has your kids taken care of. For the two front wheels, the K-3 features self-energizing hub brakes activated by a twin-pull lever, and a powerful locking rim brake for the rear wheel. The locking lever serves as a parking brake and will keep the K-3 stable as the kids climb on and off.
