Enjoy mobility. Arrive in comfort - always! Hase Lepus.
Comfort and practicality in perfect synthesis. Example: the 8-speed Shimano Premium Nexus gears. Shifted intuitively and comfortably with twist shifters; maintenance- free and robust enough for a long trike lifetime. Safety is always on board: Two hydraulic disc brakes on the rear wheels provide strong stopping power, and the Lepus parking brake secures the front wheel. The mesh seat is adjustable: up to 70 cm (27") for oversight in the city, and down to 50 cm (20") for aerodynamic touring.
Comfort is a given: The rear suspension swing arm glides smoothly over sticks and stones. Effortless errands: Your groceries will fit easily into the Lepus "trunk" behind the seat. The optional 40-liter pannier will keep your purchases dry in any weather. Trike to go: Just fold the seat and rear triangle forward, and the comfort giant will fit into almost any trunk …

More space - more comfort. This option gives you extra room on the seat or seatback.

Speed drive (=18 gear)
Two additional gears in bottom bracket. Swiss high tech allowing for a higher gear ratio than a crank with three chain wheels. The Speed-Drive is operated with the heel. Gear ratio: 1.Gear - 1,59 m / 19.9 inches (equals 36 teeth) 18. Gear - 8,1 m / 102.5 inches (equals 60 teeth)
Tandem coupling KettWiesel
With this hitch, 2 Kettwiesels can be combined to make a tandem. After removing its front wheel, a second Kettwiesel is mounted on the hitch of another one. The result: a tandem of a special kind!
Luggage bag, 30 liters
For long journeys we recommend our hase luggage bag. it is attached behind the seat and fastened with a belt. Highly durable Cordura guarantees longevity and rain protection. Includes reflector stripes.
Hydraulic Magura disc brakes
Well controllable, strong thanks to hydraulics. The hydraulic disc brake Magura Julie allows you to stop on the spot any time.
Child crank (140 mm or 110 mm)
In the smallest frame adjustment of the Kettwiesel, the child cranks can be used to transform the Kettwiesel into a trike for your children. A recumbent trike that grows with them. Once they have tried it the kids never want to leave it again!
We recommend our Lowrider front bag for tour luggage. Two Lowrider bags can be mounted at the front. Luggage storage at the front fork ensures an optimal weight distribution.
Internal Gear Hub
Rohloff 14 gear or Shimano Nexus 8 gear. When equipped with internal gear hubs, the gears of our bikes can also be switched while standing, e.g. at a traffic light. Additionally the Rohloff Speedhub offers a very large gear range comparable to a 27-speed derailleur system.
Handbike for Kettwiesel / Lepus / Pino
Ideal for wheelchair riders who enjoy motion and speed. Due to the rear driven wheels it is possible to mount an electric assistance in the front wheel. In contrast to handbikes on wheelchairs, the front wheel of our handbike never slips. The handbike can also be used as a tandem with a second Kettwiesel.
Can be fitted to foot contours. Velcro tape and side plates secure the foot on the pedal. The foot can be secured in the desired position and be turned within an angel of 35 degree. Useful for physical disabilities. Also available as a child version.
Special pedal with calf support
Same function as special pedal with added possibility to secure the calf, when it needs guidance. With wide and flexible adjustment.
Pedals with hook
Strap and rubber ribbon for simple securing, to lightly support the feet and avoid slipping down. A good alternative to click pedals, for example on recumbent bikes - like at the front of the Pino, on the Trets etc.
Crank arm shortener
Decreases the pedal circle and therefore is suitable for people whose leg stretching is limited or those with unequal legs. If the leg's movability is trainable, the adjustment of the crank arm shortener allows for gradual increase of the pedal circle and therefore optimized training results. For children in growth the crank arm shortener allows a continuous adjustment to their body size.
If the ability to bend the leg is significantly inhibited, the Pedal Pendulum enables bicycling again, since only slight bending of the leg is required
Lap belt / suspender belt
Safety belts securing lap or shoulder region.
Holder for Crutch / walking stick
Consists of a holder and a securing clip. The walking aid can easily be secured with one hand.
Lowered front boom (Kettwiesel / Lepus)
Front boom is lowered by 10 cm / 4 "; mounting becomes easier and pedaling angle lower.
16" front wheel
Lowers the front by 6 cm - helpful for kicking down and allows easier mounting.
Special handlebar (Kettwiesel / Lepus)
Extends the steering system up to 80 cm / 32" upwards.
Extends the seat 70 mm / 2.8". Or 70 mm / 2.8" higher back for more back support
If the leg's physical function is better than that of the arms, a pedal-back brake can be very useful. Lepus and Kettwiesel with pedal back brakes cannot be pushed backwards. Consists of a freewheel at the Bottom Bracket and a hydraulic brake.
