Part recumbent, part upright tandem, and now a part-time cargo bike to boot. An unbeatable concept: the PINO is truly the most versatile human-powered vehicle for cycling duos or anyone who – with the new PINO PORTER option – would like to manage all their daily shopping and transport by bike.

The captain in the second row has the same unhindered view as the stoker; and the tandem is incredibly adjustable, making it possible for passengers who (still) can’t pedal to ride in the comfy front seat: for example, children from 3’3” (100 cm) in height (with the optional Children’s Crankset) or people with special needs.

In the front row, you’ll feel like a VIP guest as you lean back and roll into the panoramic horizon, floating comfortably on the suspension fork; thanks to the second freewheel, you can even take a break and let the captain pedal alone for a while. And the nimble team-machine is even transportable: every PINO model has a two-part frame that can be taken apart quickly and easily. The ­tandem’s ultra-stiff tube joint is extremely heavy duty.

On longer trips, the Luggage Rack and optional Lowrider carry supplies for the whole family – and the hydraulic disc brakes ensure that everything stays safe and under control when the going gets … lively.

We’ve also livened up the design. In addition, all PINOS now have a matt-black, anodized front boom with markings for quick length-adjustment and new, replaceable dropouts for the easy installation of a Rohloff hub.


A double dose of iron

Nicholas Garwood is a 15-year-old South African who happens to have cerebral palsy with spasticity. And a dad whose favorite pastime is ­competing in triathlons – especially the Ironman – with his son on the PINO. We met with Team Garwood at Ironman South Africa 2014.

Nikki sits on the front seat of the PINO, his Team-Garwood jersey flapping in the wind. He smiles and gestures with excitement, shouting, “Go, Dad, go!” Anyone who gets to know Nikki – as we did during our visit to South Africa – can’t help noticing how boundless his energy is. And how much motivation someone like him can bring to a team.
