One wheel in front, two behind, and you in the middle. Thanks to its unique design, the Kettwiesel is not only one of the most manoeuvrable trikes on the market, but also one of the most adaptable. We've worked alongside the manufacturers for over 10 years, specialising in 'Reha' adaptations to suit each of our customers individual requirements.
The Kettwiesel is perfect for small and long journies alike, with optional Shimano Steps power assist to take your further. It's recumbant design makes the cycling around town just as fun to navigate as country roads or untamed trails. It's light a lightweight cornering machine, with exceptional stability from the low centre of gravity and three wheels, how many cyclists can put their feet up at a red light?
The adjustable mesh seat makes long-distance touring easy, and with the quick-adjust frame, you can change the seat-to-pedal spacing without shortening the chain. The standard frame fits individuals from 4'3" to 6'7", meaning for young people it could be the last bike they'll ever need with its incredible range of growth, but it's in the finer details that set this trike apart.
The Kettwiesel is available in several formats; each designed to suit your style of riding. These include versions with and without motors, the Kross for more technical forest and trail riding, and versions which offer extra comfort for commuters.
The two disc brakes on the rear wheels bite down hard and guarantee safety when you need it most, but also allow plenty of modulation to come to a stop slowly and surely, even in the wet.
The brakes levers can be configured in a multitude of ways, from both levers being mounted on one handle to suit those with a single amputation or low-strength in one hand, to a custom lever that is operated with the inner thigh for those with no ability for control in their upper limbs, with steering being controlled by the sway of the upper body instead of the normal handles by your side - The Kettwiesel is the most adaptable and customisable trike on the market.
Portable, the Kettwiesel with its new foldable frame can fit into most cars, with its rear wheels neatly tucking under its self, the seat folding down to lay flat on the frame and the easy adjustability of the front boom to shorten down to create the smallest footprint possible. The Kettwiesel can also be customised to utilise a front hub or crank motor, and with electronic gearing it can also be fully automatic, meaning the only thing you have to think about is where to point the bike, when to pedal, and when to brake.
