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 from HASE BIKES: Adaptive high-tech

​Be it a weekend ride in the countryside or a daily commute to work, the HANDBIKEs from HASE BIKES have what it takes to make mobility fun, ergonomic, and boundary-less. And with HASE BIKES’ unparalleled range of adaptive accessories, each trike can be perfectly customized to the rider’s needs and preferences.

At HASE BIKES, handcyclists can choose between the HANDBIKE version of the sporty KETTWIESEL or a laid-back LEPUS HANDBIKE with 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.

The HANDBIKE comes 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 all HASE BIKES components: 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, HANDBIKES have 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 the HANDBIKE is 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 the HANDBIKE to the rider for perfect ergonomics.
