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.
- Hi-rise handlebar, also for one hand use
- Different pedal options for restrictions in the leg movement
- Electric support motor

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.
