HANDBIKE KETTWIESEL or LEPUS: Sleek, hand-powered delta trikes
Power in your hands! A recumbent trike with hand cranks for a magical mix of autonomy and adrenaline.
HANDBIKEs fromHASEBIKES: Adaptive high-tech
Be it a weekend ride in the countryside or a daily commute to work, theHANDBIKEs fromHASEBIKEShave what it takes to make mobility fun, ergonomic, and boundary-less. And withHASEBIKES’ unparalleled range of adaptive accessories, each trike can be perfectly customized to the rider’s needs and preferences.
AtHASEBIKES, handcyclists can choose between theHANDBIKEversion of the sportyKETTWIESELor a laid-backLEPUSHANDBIKEwith a higher seat. Both models are delta trikes with one wheel in front and two in the back. This geometry makes them not only wonderfully nimble but also incredibly stable.
TheHANDBIKEcomes with a beautifully engineered hand-crank assembly that efficiently transfers the power from your arms to the wheels. The adjustable leg supports offer comfortable stability and protection for the lower body.
One advantage of recumbent trikes: easy mounting
A delta trike is practically untippable when parked. The seat is also the perfect height for easy transfer from a wheelchair. For mounting and dismounting, the hand-crank assembly is folded forward and out of the way. And like allHASEBIKEScomponents: it can be perfectly adjusted to the size and preferences of the rider.
One advantage of rear-wheel drive: more grip on the ascents
Thanks to rear-wheel drive,HANDBIKEShave such great traction that even riding uphill is fun. If you plan to take your trike to the trails, a differential is an indispensable accessory. It transfers the power to both rear wheels. And if you’re looking for even more luxury on hilly routes, there’s always the e-motor option.
Pedaling, shifting, braking: all at your fingertips
Actually, the design of theHANDBIKEis much like any other bike: the shifters and brake levers are mounted to the handgrips. The difference is that these grips also function as hand pedals. Sounds a lot like multitasking, but the controls are actually very easy to learn.
The hand cranks are available in two different sizes: 174-millimeter and 150-millimeter. This helps adapt theHANDBIKEto the rider for perfect ergonomics.
