It’s the rider who decides when the Shimano Steps switches on. Then the powerful mid-motor provides smooth and seamless assist. It gives you more traction on the rear wheels than a front motor, and its 504Wh battery, hidden behind the seat, can be fully charged in a mere four hours.
The Di2 Alfine is an 8-speed, electronic, internally geared hub that coordinates perfectly with the motor. It can be operated in either manual or automatic mode. And the rider can switch between these modes with the touch of a button on the display.
When parked upright, the EVO looks like a futuristic work of art. Just as impressive is the folded version: all it takes is three quick steps to transform the trike into a masterpiece of compactness with a maximum length of 38 inches (96 cm).
Also foldable … and eye-catching: the KLIMAX Foldable Fairing, which is available as an accessory. The patented HASE BIKES fairing waits – compactly folded – in its carrying case for the next rainy day, when it can be mounted and unfolded in a flash. With the corresponding Rain Poncho, it turns the EVO into a weatherproof, all-season trike.
The price includes the battery and charger, which Hase does not include on their site.
KETTWIESEL EVO STEPS: The symbiosis of sportiness and comfort
As a recumbent trike with a Shimano motor and suspension, the Kettwiesel Evo Steps is a luxury-class delta.
Recumbent trike + recumbent trike = 5-wheel tandem
The delta configuration – one wheel in front and two in the back – offers an exceptionally sporty performance: not only because the turning radius is very small, but also because the low center of gravity guarantees excellent safety and stability – even when cornering at high speeds.
The EVO STEPS is the luxury model of the Kettwiesel series.The EVO STEPS is upgraded version for riders with even higher standards for comfort: The standard model features a Shimano Steps motor and the corresponding Di2 electronic shifting system. And its suspension is out of this world: independent wheel suspension, air shocks, and cornering-stability control like a car. A sporty ride doesn’t have to be uncomfortable.
