The Dunkster - Freedom Ryder E-1 (Handcycle)
A sporty road and recreational handcycle made by one of the original handcycle builders, Freedom Ryder with some one of a kind modifications courtesy of Tetra Society engineers.
Named for its original owner, the Quadfather and inventor of quad rugby, Duncan Campbell, and chosen for a quad-friendly, stable and independent ride. Tetra created a height-adjustable seat that offers easy transfers to this lower handcycle. This handcycle uses popular U-grips for quads with enough hand function who can operate a hand brake and gearshift, but can also be used with comfort grip handles for those with more hand function. This bike has a 500w BionX electric assist.

JEDD is a local star in Vancouver, designed by the legendary Ed Bell to be an easy, affordable handcycle for recreation and road riding. This is a 9 speed handcycle with an internal gear hub and coaster brakes. The “parking brake” and gear selector are within easy reach below the cranks. This bike has a nice high seat height for easier transfers and unlike most other “delta” style handcycles, has a smaller turning radius and easier turning regardless of how long your legs are! Best of all, the rear wheels are quick release for easy transport. This handcycle is easiest for people with some reasonable sitting balance, and ideal for someone who wants to transfer independently.

Top End Excelerator XLT (Handcycle)
This handcycle has a somewhat recumbent seat position and is great for recreational street riding and touring. It has an intermediate seat hight (not as low as many road handcycles), is very stable for riders with less abdominal control. The XLT rides faster than the Top End Excelerator, but may not work for very tall riders.
We’ve kitted out this bike in our fleet to be ideal for riders with poor grip or wrist function. Quad riders on this bike can use any of our grip assist modifications such as QuadGrips, ActiveHands or C5-Grips and still operate the brakes.
