mobike / Handbike + Wheelchair

The Mobike is a multifunctional hand bike for physically challenged people.
It can be transformed from a sportive hand bike to an agile wheelchair through an easy to perform transformation. This enables the hand bike cyclist to react to his environment and it substantially improves his autonomy. The frame is made of a tilt track. Through using the crank actuation the driver is able to position himself upward between the back wheels with both seat and drive assembly.
The carrying wheel hits the ground and the drive assembly can easily be uncoupled and parked.
