The KETTWIESEL from Hase becomes more and more popular, not only for customers with back problems, who cannot use a “normal” bike, but also for its “fun factor”.
With the low centre of gravity and the ergonomical seat position KETTWIESEL is highly efficient AND comfortable - try it.

One wheel in front, two in the back, and a happy rider in between – the classic delta form makes the KETTWIESEL fascinatingly dynamic and stable in cornering. It feels just as much at home on smooth asphalt as it does on daredevil ramps or bumpy farm tracks. And this is where the newly developed rear-­suspension system for the models EVO and KROSS really comes into its own.

  The two swing arms of the independent wheel suspension system with cornering-stability control are supported by air shocks. The system offers a full 80 millimeters of travel. The result: a magic carpet ride.And there’s also more comfort when it comes to folding: thanks to a new quick-release, the KETTWIESEL seat is now easier to fold and stow. With the QUICKSTICK axles, the wheels can be removed in just seconds (does not apply to EVO and KROSS).

The front section of the chain is now fully enclosed – meaning no grease on the pant legs – and, thanks to a new, ­inconspicuous quick-adjust system, it’s even easier to adjust the trike to different riders without having to change the chain.More comfort for the eye: the front boom on all models is now an elegant matt black with special ­markings that help you find the right length adjustment for your legs – no more guesswork.  

We can offer different gearing and brake options, the KETTWIESEL with disc brakes, 9 speed gear system+ Mountain drive - a 2 speed gear box, a 8 speed or 14 speed internal hub.

Available accessories:
- Hi-rise handlebar, also for one hand use
- Different pedal options for restrictions in the leg movement
- Fairing
- Electric support motor
- Hand-drive

HASE LEPUS -  Check out their website for more details -

The " Big Brother" of Kettwiesel , Lepus is the touring version of the Hase recumbant range. The Lepus features a seat suspension for increased comfort, 27 gears and disk brakes. Additional storage space behind the seat and the folding mechanism make it a great touring trike.

Take a seat and enjoy the ride. With the LEPUS, this is possible – even for people who have never spent much time on a bike or trike. Who are simply looking for a practical option for self-propelled mobility – or a way to become mobile again.
It all begins with the lowered front boom for easy mounting: just sink into the comfortable mesh seat, which can be adjusted to a height of 20” to 28” (50–70 cm) and offers superb visibility in traffic.

You will enjoy riding with excellent stability – far surpassing that of conventional rehab trikes – and gliding down the road on a pillow of soft suspension. Or just leaning back in your seat at the stoplight without having to dismount.

Whether you’re travelling to an event, the office, or the supermarket: behind the seat is enough space for everything – and in the voluminous, waterproof bag (accessory), your supplies will make it from A to B without getting wet.

Comfort, low maintenance, and user-friendliness are also qualities of the gear system: with the 8-speed, smooth-running Shimano Nexus Premium hub, you can change gears in any ­situation – with a click of the easy-to-use twist shifter. And the robust Avid disc brakes ensure that the sedan will come to a safe halt at your command.

And when the wanderlust hits: with a few twists and turns, your LEPUS can be folded into an easily transportable unit that fits into practically any compact car.

The TRIX is a cool and fun piece of sports equipment for young riders

Kids with disabilities also need cool sports equipment that’s fun to use. The TRIX can support young people in their development and offer a fun option for physical exercise.

Fully integrated, incredibly nimble, and safeThe TRIX is a trike for young people with disabilities or recovering from injury. It is intuitive to ride and boasts extremely smooth handling. The brakes, like all components, are state of the art, and the stability is in a league of its own.

But perhaps most importantly, the TRIX is wonderfully agile and loads of fun to ride!
It also looks nothing like a standard special-needs trike. Because motivation is fueled by fun… and being at the helm of a cool vehicle can make kids feel like they’re on top of the world. The bold yellow frame and stylish spoke covers are a big hit with teen trikers.

Designed – and engineered – for young peopleAll technical features have been carefully chosen. For example, the trike is easy to adjust to riders of different heights. Thanks to its quick-adjust frame, the length can be adjusted without having to shorten or lengthen the chain.

Anyone between 4’1” to 6’3” (1.25–1.90 m) in height can ride the TRIX. The Pedals with Toe Clips and Straps also feature special heel straps that prevent the rider’s feet from slipping off. The brake levers feature a shorter reach for riders with smaller hands. But that doesn’t mean any less braking strength: The disc brakes offer excellent stopping power and precise modulation. And when the action stops, a flip of a lever is all it takes to set the parking brake.

 Hot wheels for special kids: TRETS, the adaptive fun-mobile - Kids love the TRETS from Hase Bikes. Because, as a delta trike, the TRETS combines a high level of safety with a whole lot of fun.

Stability for fearless cornering: the recumbent trikeTRETS: discovering speed. Children who are hardly able to walk unassisted can experience the wind in their hair and the spine-tingling sensation of acceleration. Fun, pride, and confidence through cycling – the TRETS makes it possible. Outstanding brakes, a 3-point safety harness, and a level of stability that leaves other therapeutic trikes in the dust.

The TRETS is a delta trike with a low center of gravity, which means riders can get into the seat with no scary wobbling. And the handlebars fold forward to make mounting even easier. The pedals with toe clips and elastic heel straps guarantee good positioning, provide support, and prevent slipping. And once the rider’s all strapped in, they’re off like lightening!

Don’t compromise. Customize!The TRETS is a pretty sweet set of wheels, for girls and boys alike. If it only came in everyone’s favorite color! It does – special finishes are possible, even hot pink and jet black.

The TRETS can also be customized with a wide range of special accessories. For example, there are even Pendulum Pedals for children with severely limited mobility. Another ingenious option: the Crank Shortener is perfect for legs of different lengths or for when the knees cannot be fully extended.

Don’t split up. Hitch up!If mom and dad start to feel lonely or unimportant, it may be time for the “I’m too tired” act. Then it’s “front wheel off – drawbar on,” and presto: the TRETS is a trailer. While the rider up front is getting extra exercise, the trailer passenger can relax, smile at passersby, and occasionally help with the pedaling. Or even do a little mischievous braking now and then …

Another indispensable extra: the Guide Bar, which is attached behind the seat. It allows parents to give a helpful push or do some corrective steering on walks. And the TRETS is even transportable: with a folded handlebar, it can be made small enough to fit in the trunk of a car. Brilliant, isn’t it?

We go TRIGO: The flexibility of our new recumbent trike is second to none. Standing ovations for a recumbent trike: the TRIGO, a modular cornering wizard that lets you enjoy the exhilaration of delta triking without blowing your budget!

Recumbent plus delta trike = safety, stability, and agility all rolled into FUNLike its KETTWIESEL cousin, the TRIGO has a low seat between its rear wheels for extreme stability, and a single wheel in front for outstanding agility. In short: the perfect recumbent trike for confident cornering. If you’re so inclined. With 24 gears, you can also enjoy speeding down the straightaway. Or downhill. Or uphill. Or anywhere the road takes you.The modules: lightning-fast adjustments“Can I try?” On the TRIGO, you’ll hear this question a lot, and it’s a great chance to show off the trike’s flexibility. The modules of the delta trike move along guide rails and are infinitely adjustable without tools. As a result, the recumbent TRIGO can be quickly adjusted to a new rider. Provided that the rider is between 4’7” (1.40 m) and 6’7” (2 m) in height. And provided that you’re willing to share.

For the length adjustment, all you have to do is open a lever and slide the seat into the appropriate position. No need for tools and no need to shorten or lengthen the chain! The TRIGO even has adjustable handlebar grips: both the angle and width are adjustable, ensuring that every rider can enjoy the perfect hand position for steering, grip-shifting, and braking. And last but not least, the seat tilt can be set to your preferred position using a quick-release mechanism.

The extras: accessories for everyday useOnce you’ve experienced how sporty you can be in a comfy, recumbent seat, you’ll be hooked. And if you plan on using the TRIGO for more than simply sports and fun, then be sure to check out the wide range of recumbent-trike accessories. For example, the ROLLERRACK, ROLLER BAG, and FOLDABLE FAIRING are all extremely practical for everyday use. The same applies to the SHIMANO STEPS mid-motor, which can be retrofitted to the TRIGOin a few simple steps.


Greenspeed GT20 - check out their website for more details -

The GT20 is a new Greenspeed trike which is exceptionally easy to ride. Introduced at the 2015 Recumbent Cycle-Con show in Cincinnati, four different riders claimed it was the best trike at the show, and the guy who bought the 1st prototype, claimed he could climb hills in two gears higher than he could on his other 4 trikes.A carefully engineered, light weight frame, low rolling resistance tires, and an efficient drive train, give exceptional performance, which make this trike a real joy to ride, for commuting, touring or just exercising and having fun.

It is not much use having a really comfortable trike if it performs like a slug. A trike should be a joy to ride, and reward you for every pedal stroke. In fact not only should a recumbent trike be more comfortable than an upright bike, it should be more efficient and faster, due to better aerodynamics. This is where the GT20 shines. Unlike upright bikes, recumbent trikes are a mono tube design, and with every stroke of the pedals, the boom will flex down and the frame will flex up under the seat, wasting some of your effort. To overcome this the GT20 uses a rectangular main tube and crank extension. Thus the main tube is BOTH stiffer and lighter than the oversize round main tube used on the Magnum! To further reduce the weight further, the GT20 uses the special lightweight Aero hubs, and new kingpins which are ½ the weight of the kingpins used on the Magnum.

Many trikes with 20” wheels use the standard gearing designed for ordinary bikes with 26” wheels, and then believe trikes are slower than bikes. Some use 26 inch rear wheels on trikes which are designed for bikes which have very little side loading, and then wonder why they are unstable. The GT20 uses 20” wheels, with gearing designed for 20” wheels, so that it is BOTH fast and stable. Finally, there is the Scorcher tires. The Greenspeed Scorcher tires were introduced in 2005, and for ten years have been the choice of Pedal Prix teams, as they are faster than any other tire on the market. Last year, 2015, we had another look at the design, and have managed to improve the rolling resistance by another 15%! So the GT20 has the new “Scorcher 120” tires as standard equipment.

Magnum - check out their website for more information -

The new 2017 Magnum trike builds on our very successful Magnum which was launched in 2012, and has been our best seller since then. The 2017 Magnum comes in two sizes, the SD which is the same size as the original Magnum, and the XL, which is the largest production trike in the world, built to accommodate riders up to 7 foot in height and weighing up to 450 lbs.

It retains the unique features of the earlier Magnum which made it so popular, the seat height and angle adjustment, plus the press-button quick release on the front wheels, plus the on road and off road capabilities. However, to strengthen the frame over the earlier Magnum, we are using a rectangular section main tube, 1st used on the Anura introduced in 2006, and recently on the GT20, introduced in 2016.

This tubing is both stronger and lighter than the round tubing used on the original Magnum, plus it allows quick and easy adjustment of the boom for leg length without having to realign the cranks each time, and positively prevents the cranks from twisting under sudden acceleration. And rather than the “Ved” cross member of the early Magnums, the SD/XL cross member is curved like the GT20, to allow the riders to stand closer to the seat, for easier entry and exit.

The Magnum is one of the most versatile trikes ever built. The original Magnum is in use by riders from as small as 100 lbs to as large as 400 lbs. And the Magnum XL will suit riders from 150 lbs to 450 lbs. The SD will suit riders with an x-seam from 40 to 50 inches or about 5’ 3” to 6’ 7” in height. The XL from 44 to 55 inches X-seam or from about 5’ 9” to 7’ 3” . It is equally at home doing a transcontinental tour, as it is commuting, popping down to the milk bar to pick up some bread, or just exercising and having fun outdoors. The optional, specially designed pannier rack has been hailed as one of the best available. Made from high strength aluminium alloy tubing, weighing less than ½ lb, but rated at 88 lbs, it withstood the standard vibration test for bicycle, of 100,000 cycles with a 40 kg load instead of the standard 25kg load.

Scorpion FX  - check out their website for more information -

This conveniently foldable touring trike has been designed by HP Velotechnik's engineers especially with the needs of commuters and touring cyclists in mind. The seat height of the Scorpion fx is noticeably higher and more upright compared to its more sporty fellow Scorpion, offering great outlook and a good view in traffic. The higher seat also allows for an additional lowrider rack behind the seat. Its solid design allows for a safe transport of a pair of front panniers. Together with the robust rear rack, you can thus transport up to 50 kg of luggage in four panniers. For a stable ride, all racks are positioned close to your body and your trike's center of gravity. Once you are loaded that high, you'll value our various drivetrain options that will give you your extra low gear when pedaling the really steep challenges.

Handy package. Just a few steps convert your fast touring trike into a handy package that can be easily transported in the trunk of your car. It takes only 60 seconds to remove the seat without tools and fold the rear frame forward just like the tail of a Scorpion. You'll find a little strap hiding behind the frame that connects the folded frame parts so that you can carry your trike around. If you require an even more compact package, you can remove the front wheels in 90 seconds with a simple allen key - now your Scorpion fx can even fit in a small micro car like the Smart.

Or into your apartment. Indeed, times are now definitely over when people could assert that you had no more space for great cycling ideas...

Speeds up not only your heart rate: This tricycle remarkably unfolds into a good deal of riding pleasure. To enable you to carry the Gekko fx quite compactly wherever you'd like to go, the engineers at HP Velotechnik have equipped the nimble touring trike with an amazingly fast, easy-to-operate, sophisticated folding system. Special feature: All components remain mounted on the trike – unlike conventional folding trikes, in which the seat, wheels or rack must be removed first and transported separately. HP Velotechnik's innovative Dual Flat Fold (D.F.F.) system implements this on Gekko fx with just two quick release levers. With little practice, you can fold your Gekko fx into a compact size of 83 × 52 × 82 cm in ten seconds.

Your advantage: After the swift folding, the package can be parked vertically to save space. So you can carry it easily along winding stairways or through narrow train doors.

Clear line: The solid frame construction of the Gekko fx combines a secure road holding with a sporty handling, precise steering, low weight and maximum acceleration. The frame cross member elegantly curves to the front and is positioned close to the seat. Together with the rugged, wide angle-adjustable handlebar enables you to get in and out of the seat very easily.

On the right track here. Besides innovative bicycle technology, the Gekko fx embodies the many years of tricycle construction experience of the HP Velotechnik specialists. Resilient and with a lot of traction, the Gekko fx is your faithful companion.
