 Pure Trike Fun.

If you develop sporting ambitions, you still need not live without comfort: there are no wishes left with the seat moade from an air and water permeable mesh, and an adjustable seating angle and a frame length that can be easily adjusted by pulling out the front boom.

Whether fitted with standard lighting system and mudguards as a road authorized bike for daily use or fully travel equipped with Lowrider and Bob-Yak trailer - your personal Kettwiesel awaits your first test ride.

And if you quickly need a parking space: Just place your Kettwiesel upright! A little parking stand protects the rear light and makes it possible to comfortable store it in the narrowest of spaces.


Excellent road handling and a weight of only 17 kg / 34 lbs turn the Kettwiesel into a racer among the trikes. The good road handling results from its low centre of gravity, the excellent manoeuvrability and steering precision from its small turning radius.
Get on! Let the adventure begin!

Since you don't have to shift your weight, you can turn and corner immediately. The quality disk brakes give you even more confidence and assure secure riding. You define the speed and can choose between 9 gears with large ratio (Gear 1: 2.3 m / 28 inches; Gear 9: 7.3 m / 92 inces) or the optional Speed-drive with 18 gears or Nexus 8 Gear hub or Rohloff 14 gear hub.

Luggage bag, 30 liters Luggage bag, 30 liters

Hydarulic Magura disc brakes Hydarulic Magura disc brakes
Well controllable, strong thanks to hydaulics. The hydaulic disc brake Magura Julie allows you to stop on the spot any time.
Child crank (140 mm or 110 mm) Child crank (140 mm or 110 mm)
In the smallest frame adjustment of the Kettwiesel, the child cranks can be used to transform the Kettwiesel into a trike for your children. A recumbent trike that grows with them. Once they have tried it the kids never want to leave it again!
Hase Lowrider Hase Lowrider
We recommend our Lowrider front bag for tour luggage. Two lowrider bags can be mounted at the front. Luggage storage at the front fork ensures an optimal weight distribution.
Internal Gear Hub Internal Gear Hub
Rohloff 14 gear or Shimano Nexus 8 gear. When equipped with internal gear hubs, the gears of our bikes can also be switched while standing, e.g. at a traffic light. Additionally the Rohloff Speedhub offers a very large gear range comparable to a 27-speed derailleur system.
Handbike for Kettwiesel / Lepus / Pino Handbike for Kettwiesel / Lepus / Pino
Ideal for wheelchair riders who enjoy motion and speed. Due to the rear driven wheels it is possible to mount an electric assistance in the front wheel. In contrast to handbikes on wheelchairs, the front wheel of our handbike never slips. The handbike can also be used as a tandem with a second Kettwiesel.
Special Pedals Special Pedals
Can be fitted to foot contours. Velcro tape and side plates secure the foot on the pedal. The foot can be secured in the desired position and be turned within an angel of 35 degree. Useful for physical disabilities. Also available as a child version.
Special pedal with calf support Special pedal with calf support
Same function as special pedal with added possibility to secure the calf, when it needs guidance. With wide and flexible adjustment.
Pedals with hook Pedals with hook
Strap and rubber ribbon for simple securing, to lightly support the feet and avoid slipping down. A good alternative to click pedals, for example on recumbent bikes - like at the front of the Pino, on the Trets etc.
Crank arm shortener Crank arm shortener
Decreases the pedal circle and therefore is suitable for people whose leg stretching is limited or those with unequal legs. If the leg's movability is trainable, the adjustment of the crank arm shortener allows for gradual increase of the pedal circle and therefore optimized training results. For children in growth the crank arm shortener allows a continuous adjustment to their body size.
Pedal Pendulum Pedal Pendulum
If the ability to bend the leg is significantly inhibited, the Pedal Pendulum enables bicycling again, since only slight bending of the leg is required.
