New Trike from HASE BIKES for Everyday and Special Needs
Mobility Meets Flexibility: TRIGO UP!
Today, trikes are just as much in demand for recreational cycling as they are for special needs mobility and everyday use. HASE BIKES developed its new TRIGO UP as an all-rounder that erases the boundaries between these categories, eliminates age limits, and revolutionizes trike affordability.
It looks cool and comes complete with “Easy Rider” attitude: the new TRIGO from HASE BIKES. The company is known for its deltas, like the KETTWIESEL: these are trikes with one wheel in front, two in the back, and a comfortable seat in between. The delta design guarantees stable road-holding and intuitive handling. Although the TRIGO UP can also be used by people in physical therapy or with a disability, it doesnt look anything like the vast majority of adaptive trikes. Instead, its a real head-turner: clear lines and a sleek, youthful design. One look and youll be asking for a test ride.
Fast and perfect adjustments
In fact, the trike is always ready for test riders, because all it takes is a proverbial twist of the wrist to make the necessary adjustments: just loosen two quick releases, slide the seat into the appropriate position, close the quick releases, and youre ready to roll. This system makes it possible to instantly adjust the TRIGO UP to any rider between 47” and 67” in height (1.40 - 2.00 m) without tools and without having to shorten or lengthen the chain. Seat tilt and height? Both can be adjusted just as easily. The TRIGO UPs comfortable seat can be raised to height settings of up to 27 inches (68.5 cm) – a higher seat is not only easier to get into and out of, but also offers a good overview of traffic. The handlebar height and angle can also be adjusted to the rider without having to get out your toolbox; ergonomics, more than anything, is about feeling good.
Riding fun for everyone
“In the development of the TRIGO, we also thought of riders with restricted mobility due to a disability or other health issues. Older people who want to stay active will also feel at-ease on it,” said Marec Hase, founder of HASE BIKES. With the downward-angled main tube and the comfortable seat height, mounting is as easy as sitting down on a chair. “Older riders will appreciate not only the comfort, but also the familiar, simple controls and intuitive handling,” explained the developer.
The TRIGO UP masters all of this. Unlike a classic recumbent, where the riders legs are primarily out in front, the TRIGO UPs bottom bracket is much lower than the seat, which means the rider pedals primarily downwards, almost like a normal upright bike. And the comfortable handlebars are positioned directly in the riders field of vision. The TRIGO UP is not only loads of fun – and the more curves, the merrier – but also perfectly equipped for stress-free riding: powerful disc brakes with smooth modulation bring you safely to a stop at red lights, where you can relax and wait for green in your comfy seat, and perhaps even shift your eight-speed internal hub into a lower gear for starting off again …
Retrofitting to a high-end e-trike
The TRIGO UP can be made even more comfortable with the Shimano Steps drive. Your bike shop can replace the bottom bracket with the mid-motor in less than half an hour. This retrofitting option is also a world first. The drive system is highly efficient, practically silent, and the most harmonious of its kind on the market today. Slight pressure on the pedals is all it takes for the TRIGO UP to glide down the road, or up any hill.
TRIGO – the version for seasoned trikers
The TRIGO is also available without the “UP”: many diehard triking fans love under-seat steering. The handlebar grips are positioned exactly where your hands fall in a relaxed sitting position. The width and angle of the handlebars are infinitely adjustable. With its under-seat steering and 24-speed derailleur system, the TRIGO is a well-equipped sports trike, but nevertheless superbly comfortable and easy to ride.
Shopping, commuting, touring – accessories make it possible
The TRIGO UP and TRIGO can be adapted to various uses with HASE BIKES generous range of accessories: from the fender kit or lighting and turn-signal systems powered by rechargeable batteries to the pannier or basket for shopping and the redesigned KLIMAX Foldable Fairing (TRIGO only) for riding in poor weather conditions ... everything is possible.
Both existing and soon-to-be trike fans will be thrilled with the price: HASE BIKES is offering the TRIGO with under-seat steering for a mere €1,995 and the TRIGO UP for €2,195 – these prices are also unparalleled on the market for high-quality trikes!
