Can you operate the Tour's brakes with one hand?

Go Back

Is it possible to control the Tour's speed and braking when only the right-hand is 100% functional and the left-hand stays partially closed? 

In addition to the traditional bicycle style braking system, the Tour offers a drag brag. The drag brake allows you to set the brake by partially engaging it, slowing the walker down without the need to constantly squeeze the handle and allowing you to control the speed and reduce runaway. Currently, there is not a one-handed operation for the bicycle style system.  - Motivo Team
