The ElectroBike Lipo Smart Power-Assist Handcycle
Peddling a handcycle requires a lot of arm strength. For quadriplegics and others with limited arm strength who are only able to peddle on flat level ground, even the smallest hill, curb, or gentle slope can become an insurmountable mountain. The ElectroDrive Smart "levels the playing field", or in this case, "levels" the bike trail!
The Lipo Smart Power-Assist Handcycle provides adjustable power assist when needed for up to 12.5 miles (20km) up to a speed of 11.2 mph (18 km/h), conforming to laws of most European countries. For those with greater arm strength it can be operated without power assist.
Testimony from Mark Felling, Broadened Horizons President and C4/C5 Quadriplegic:
I was able to pedal the Rio Mobility Dragonfly on perfectly level ground with significant handgrip and shifting modifications. However, with my limited arm strength, I was very frustrated that someone had to walk or jog next to me to provide a helping push at any bump or slope. Then I discovered the ElectroBike Lipo Smart!
The innovative Pedaling Sensor turns on the motor at the beginning of pedaling and stops it immediately at the end of turning. A Power Assist Throttle lever or grip determines how much power the motor will add. Steep hills are no longer a problem. In flat areas, the power assist can make extended excursions of 12.5 miles (20km) possible, providing new freedom and a feeling of living. This allows people with limited strength to experience new possibilities for training, slowly reducing the amount of power assist needed and increasing independence in many of life's activities. You can even ride without power / motor assist and leave the batteries at home.
