Fat, knobby tyres, full suspension and MTB-specific gearing. The off-road cousin of the Kettwiesel is bringing the adrenaline of mountain-biking to the trike world, comfort without any compromise of efficiency, strength or stability, this is the way the trails were meant to be ridden.
The Kettwiesel Kross has an extremely sporty chassis with long-travel independent wheel suspension, these features make it the perfect vehicle for tricks and manoeuvres, or for power-sliding into hairpin corners. Engineered for outstanding safety, the cycle can do what others can't. Thanks to it's genius Differential system, both rear wheels are driven, and with most of the weight on the rear axle, the Kross will make it up any hill. This means no more problems with the driven wheel spinning out in gravel or mud, and there's plenty of range in it's gearing to find the perfect amount of power to maintain traction. The ergonomic seat helps you put full power to the pedals, the exhilaration given by it's performance is something you just have to experience for yourself.
Until recently, the use of derailleur gears on trikes with full suspension was fraught with problems. Because standard, low-hanging derailleur cages can hit the ground when the suspension compresses, MTB trails were not ideal without a full crew of technicians following you with spare parts... That's why Hase decided to develop their very own derailleur system, designed to specifically deal with this issue. The new Hase Linear Derailleur offers incredible ground clearance, and offers an extremely wide range of gears. It holds all shifting components neatly within the frame, and due to it's precision, is very forgiving of the worst of shifting mistakes without the chain jumping off. The Linear Derailleur will take anything you're prepared to throw at it, and is what sets the Kross apart from any other MTB trike currently on the market.
Portable, the Kettwiesel Kross with it's new foldable frame can fit into most cars, with it's rear wheels neatly tucking under it's self, the seat folding down to lay flat on the frame and the easy adjustability of the front boom to shorten down to create the smallest footprint possible. The Kross can also be customised to utilise a front hub or crank motor, and with electronic gearing it can also be fully automatic, meaning the only thing you have to think about is where to point the bike, when to pedal, and when to brake.
