City Max

What makes the City Max model so special is its dynamic gear shifting with 24 gears. So you can easily master slightly hilly or mountainous terrain and remain flexible for short trips as well as long distances.


Totally independent - even from power sockets, that only works in fully manual operation. The city handbike boasts low maintenance and foolproof operation.

Special feature

From wheelchair to tricycle

With the adaptive bike, the two castors of the wheelchair are raised, which significantly improves the off-road mobility. Whether cobblestones, gravel and dirt paths, uneven or muddy trails, these nightmare-inducing conditions no longer become an obstacle!

Handbike as sports and leisure equipment

Handbikes have a significant benefit for their riders. Due to the various movements that occur while riding, the muscles can be built up and physical coordination trained.

Hub gear

The hub gear brings many advantages. On the one hand, the wear and the associated maintenance effort is greatly reduced. On the other hand, the gearshift is protected from external influences due to the design. On top of that, the gears can also be shifted through while standing.
