PeriScope Trident Convertible

The Trident Convertible features all the adjustability of the family-friendly PeriScope design with the added versatility of frame couplers. The S+S couplers are handy for “downsizing” this long bike for getting into a vehicle or even shipping. The Trident Convertible is not designed for airline-checkable luggage like our Co-Pilot frame option. However, the magic of the convertible means you can take a section out to turn it into a tandem for just two riders, or use all three sections for three riders. ​
