iThuba Sanitizer Trike

The COVID-19 Pandemic has caught all of us off-guard, we feel the need to be part of a solution to our new problems. With this in mind, we have adapted our iThuba Water Carrier into the iThuba Sanitizer Trike.

A world first, as far as we know, this extremely durable iThuba frame accommodates and easily removable [250kgs – confirmation needed] barrel of hand or surface sanitizer, [as well as x amount of empty dispenser bottles] to assist our country in getting hand sanitizer to those in need.

We all deserve a fair chance to protect ourselves and those around us from infection, help us make a difference with the iThuba Sanitizer Trike, available with either a 500-watt Bafang electric motor or 3-speed Sturmey Archer pedal power, on 20 X 2.25” standard wheels.
