The tandem: comfort and fun for cycling duosAs a tandem, the PINO offers unprecedented comfort and an exhilarating ride. With its short wheelbase, it is almost as maneuverable as a single-seater. Furthermore, the positions of the recumbent seat and saddle allow for a stronger sense of shared experience, because the riders can communicate effortlessly without having to raise their voices. Furthermore, both riders can enjoy an unrestricted, panoramic view, and there is plenty of space for carrying luggage.
The family taxi: Children’s Crankset mounted in a flash
The PINO can also be converted to accommodate younger riders in the front seat, making it the perfect family taxi. All you need is the Children’s Crankset, which can be mounted to the PINO’s front boom in less than two minutes. This accessory also makes it possible to use the PINO as a parent-child touring tandem. And pedaling breaks are no problem at all: the front rider has a freewheel.
The cargo bike: carry home your weekly shopping with the PORTER BAG and RACK
Converting the tandem to a cargo bike is a piece of cake. With a capacity of 80 to 120 liters, the PORTER BAG on the front seat can even handle a week’s worth of groceries. When not in use, it can be quickly and easily folded up and stowed behind the seatback.
The PORTER RACK, which is mounted under the seat, has a similar cargo capacity. And its low center of gravity guarantees extremely safe and stable handling, even when the bike is fully loaded. The additional RACK BAG keeps the cargo dry. As a special feature of the cargo set: the PORTER Kickstand provides rock-solid stability when the PINO is parked.
Easy transport thanks to two-part frame
It only takes a few short minutes to open the PINO’s frame joint. Then the two frame halves will fit into practically any compact car. And once you’ve reached your destination, the tandem can be reassembled in a flash.
