Duet Wheelchair Bicycle

The Duet® is a unique combination of a comfortable wheelchair and a sturdy specialty bike that combined offer an enjoyable and extremely stable ride for passenger and rider. The passenger is always visible and in front of you!

 

The wheelchair and bike can be disconnected and separated in a blink of an eye. This allows you to cycle to the shops or the park, or to visit family and friends and then you simply disconnect the wheelchair and continue your journey ‘on foot’.

 

The whole family can go on a bike ride together. Inclusion is a big word and with The DUET there truly is inclusion with children or adults who will never be able to ride a bike on their own or are able to keep up with their siblings.

The DUET accommodates kids and adults from ages 2 to 99+ and all sizes from 20 to 275 pounds!  DUET offers maximum maneuverability with minimum effort. The wheelchair's low center of gravity provides superior weight distribution and overall stability.

A good indication on how the "pedal assist motor" works is to imagine someone pushing you from behind while riding. A stronger push with a higher motor setting.

 

The motor settings HI-MED-LO have nothing to do with your actual "speed" but your top speed will be reached rather quickly.

Picture yourself in a parking garage and the ramps going up to different floors in the garage. Without the motor it would be very difficult to ride up those ramps whereas the DUET Electro manages these ramps as if there were no ramps at all!

 

The same applies to strong headwinds because of the large profile of The DUET pedaling in high winds can be a very difficult task.

Transportation

Transporting the Duet is quick and easy!

For transportation in a i.e.:SUV it is necessary to disconnect the bike from the wheelchair. The onboard tools are used to loosen the handlebar and to lower it. The footrest pins are simply pulled out and the footrest is removed if more space is necessary.
