PRO ACTIV back-pedalling brake with crank freewheel
PRO ACTIV back-pedalling brake with crank freewheel
Gallery
The simply operated brake with individually adjustable braking force. The brake is operated by pushing the cranks forward.
 
Coloursilver
Design
  • Back-pedalling brake is based on a constructed braking system and the brake callipers from Brake Force One.
Suitability
  • From leisure to competitive sport
Suitability for tetraplegics
  • Yes.
Features
  • The brake operates with an integrated magnetic switch. This makes the hydraulic system independent and it need not be ventilated if the sensor is defective.
  • Closed system that automatically regulates the wear on the braking surfaces.
  • Massive braking force from Brake Force One brake callipers.
  • The braking resistance can be modified to the weight and requirements of the rider via three cushion strengths: red (120-140kg), blue (80-119kg), black (50-79kg)
  • Crank freewheel: The cranks can be removed to manoeuvre back and forth, and you can comfortably reverse using the hand rims. Handling the crank freewheel is easy and usually also suitable for tetraplegics. If the crank freewheel is adjusted, the brake still functions.
