NUKE call for price
The NUKE Off Road Recumbent handcycle is a unique, capable, rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle with rear suspension. Rear wheel drive handcycles are superior and much more capable than their front wheel drive counterparts. Traction and hill climbing with a rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle are second to none. The Nuke was developed for riders not able to or not interested in riding in the prone position (kneeling, face down). The recumbent position is preferred by some riders.
The Nuke rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 24” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The frame joints in the Nuke are reinforced for integrity and reliability out on the trail.
BOMBER RS call for price
With reinforced tubing joints in areas of high stress throughout the frame, the Bomber RS has been built to withstand even the toughest tests on the trail, in the backcountry and yet stay lightweight and agile. The Bomber’s rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 24” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The replaceable derailleur hanger improves reliability on the trail and longevity for the frame when facing those close calls with rocks and logs.
This offroad handcycle is designed for a rider in the prone body position. This allows the rider to see the terrain ahead more easily, and have the advantage of body weight over the crank set for added power. The primary steering is through a single, stock, mountain bike handlebar. This gives the rider the real mountain bike feel. The secondary steering is done through a chest pad. This chest pad has a flat design for decreased pressure points and improved comfort and control for both males and females. The knee rests are molded with fiberglass (see options for carbon fiber upgrades) for greater impact resistance, added strength and reduced weight. Knee rests are reinforced at knee bar area for greater strength and longevity.
