Fresh impetus for evolution:
Motor power with automatic shiftin

Evolution never stops – at least not with the KETTWIESEL. We’ve ramped up the comfort factor ... without sacrificing an ounce of riding fun or agility.

Shimano Steps motor: Automatically fasterThe e-motor provides assistance up to 16 mph (25 km/h) and harmonizes perfectly with your pedaling. With Di2 electronic shifting, you can change gears with the press of a button or let the system choose the best gear – automatically.

Full suspension for an ever-relaxing rideThe independent suspension system with air shocks makes the KETTWIESEL EVO STEPS a comfortable, full-suspension trike. A sway bar like the ones used in automotive design preserves the well-known KETTWIESEL feeling for maximum fun on three wheels. Down cobblestone roads or over curbs, the KETTWIESEL EVO STEPS always keeps its cool.

Adjustable frameAll KETTWIESEL models have a quick-adjust frame that can be easily adjusted to riders of different heights without having to shorten or lengthen the chain. The length-adjustment markings on the front boom make it easy to remember length settings for switching between various riders.

The folded trike has a maximum length of 3’2” (96 cm)The new EVO frame is foldable – and the folding process is as easy as 1-2-3: just open the quick-release levers to release the seatback and fold the seat forward. Then open another quick-release behind the seat, pull up on the cord, and – presto! – the rear portion folds down and forward. The folded trike has a maximum length of 3’2” (96 cm) for easy stowing.

The ROLLER BAG: so much more than a pannierThe ROLLER BAG is a large-capacity, waterproof pannier (available in 50 and 100-liter versions) that can be mounted behind the seat with an easy click. Its design is focused on comfort and versatility. The cover can be opened and closed with a single hand for loading and unloading the huge compartment. The 50-liter ROLLER BAG fits to any aluminum KETTWIESEL, and the 100-liter version is compatible with rear-suspension models (both available as accessories).

Maria and the EVOlution

“Recumbents are stupid,” thought Maria Jeanne Dompierre up until just a few years ago. Or to be exact: until cycling had literally become a “pain in the backside.” Then her dealer recommended a ‘bent. In no time at all, she was hooked. Since 2013, she has even been running an Internet blog on the ­subject, featuring tests and tips. We asked her to test the KETTWIESEL EVO.

“The pain in my sitting bones was immediately gone.” Maria told the story of her first experiences with a recumbent trike. “But I always felt so uncool!” she added with a laugh.
