A brief introduction
The Dual Drive is a combined drivetrain system consisting of a 3 speed internal hub, and a matching 9 speed cassette and derailleur with a unique single sided shifter.
Single-sided shifting allows the rider to use one-hand to easily click through the 27 gear option. And Dual Drive’s superior gear indication, featuring three intuitive riding modes, creates a smooth, comfortable ride for novice and master riders alike.
Your thumb is able to choose easily from three different riding modes for uphill, downhill and flat sections. The three- speed internal gear hub is able to shift at a standstill for an easy restart at a junction or hill.
Braking is taken care of using a V Brake and a disc brake
The Coyote hand cycle can be connected to most rigid wheelchairs via a docking system that is permanently mounted under the wheelchair. It is lightweight, and adds approximately one kilogram to the weight of the chair. Once connected it takes only seconds to dock on.
The rear of the docking system is bolted to either the back axle or a bar going across the back of the chair. The front is bolted to the bar underneath the front of the seat. Some chairs do not have this bar, Kuschall for example. In this case we tailor a bar to the chair, which is then bolted on using the existing holes.
The docking system will add around 1 Kilogram to the weight of the wheelchair and once fitted actually strengthens the frame of the wheelchair.
Please go to the video page to view the docking on proceedure.
(Please note we can not fit our hand cycles to folding wheelchairs)
