Cougar S11 Hybrid Handcycle with Pedelec Twin Drive
The Hybrid Handcycle (Cougar) pedelec twin drive system combines pedal assist and throttle operation.
Pedal Assist Sensor (PAS): The pedal assist sensor is mounted on the bottom bracket and provides crank speed information to the motor. The motor will not activate until PAS is activated. A magnet ring is mounted onto the sprocket and when the cranks are rotated the magnets passing the PAS activate assistance. Electric assistance is felt as soon as the rider starts peddling, power delivery is modulated via the handle bar mounted console.
Power on Demand (POD): This feature is activated using the thumb throttle. The motor delivers immediate power to the wheel when the throttle is activated. POD overrides the pedal assist sensor. This is of great benefit when gear selection is inappropriate; the rider is at a junction or hill climbing.
Pedelec twin drive electric assistance can be felt as soon as the rider starts peddling. Cougar S11 can be operated with or without the pedelec twin drive and it is possible to instantly switch from manual to power assist. Twin drive assistance can be used continuously although in order to conserve battery power it is good practice to anticipate gear changes when approaching an incline and to use assistance only when extra power is needed.
Compact, Lightweight and Long Lasting: Our 36V Lithium-ion battery weighs only 2.5kg yet has an 13.5Ah capacity. The 18650 Panasonic cells used in our batteries are widely known to be the finest available. Protected by a battery management system, the batteries provide a great combination of energy density and cycle life, allowing you to achieve more miles per charge.
Highly Reliable: Battery management technology protects packs from heat, voltage imbalance, and over-current. The BMS (Battery Management System) dramatically improves cycle life and prevents battery fires and explosions. All Li-ion cells benefit from precise battery and pack management technology.
Currently Li-ion battery packs with a capacity exceeding 300Wh are classified as Hazardous Material – Hazmat Class 9 they will not be allowed on aircraft except on cargo flights and have to be packed in carton approved with UN3841 (Lithium Battery and Equipment). We can supply 8Ah batteries if you intend to fly with your cycle.
Clip-On Docking System
Our docking system has succeeded in passing vigorous TUV impact and fatigue and strength trials in the Netherlands to international standard ISO 7176-8:2014.
Cougar S11 Hybrid can be connected to most rigid wheelchairs and many Folding Wheelchairs via a unique docking system that requires no extra brackets fitted to the wheelchair.
We have designed the Clip On system to fit virtually any rigid frame wheelchair, plus a large majority of folding wheelchairs, without the need of extra brackets or hardware being added. (we cannot fit to folding wheelchairs that have removable footrests). Our unique clamping method has masses of adjustability and will clamp to your wheelchair with a vice like grip thanks to the powerful jaws.
Super Strong and Easy to Dock
The rider wheels up to the Clip On handcycle and into the clamps. With a few turns of the tightening levers the clamps grip to the front down tubes of the wheelchair. The rider then pushes the top of the handcycle away from himself or herself, thus lifting the wheelchair casters off the ground; the latching system will simultaneously lock in to place. Once docked, the user activates a secondary safety lock. This safety lock ensures that the system cannot be undocked accidently, even when the main release lever is activated. To undock the rider must be stationary.
The PVC coated clamping jaws have been designed to lock onto 19mm tube all the way up to 35mm tube, this covers a vast range of wheelchairs. The amount of adjustability available ensures our system will fit tapered, V, and straight wheelchair front down tubes.
The quick release stand is both height and width adjustable. The quick release function allows for a more compact cycle, especially important when transporting your handcycle in the car.
