The Racebike 2017 Edition is the brand new, advanced version of the Wolturnus Racebike, which has been developed together with the Wolturnus Pro Handcycling Team. With a starting weight of 9 kg (time trial version), this custom-made handbike is competitively light.
Just as the original Racebike model, the Racebike 2017 Edition combines low weight and stability with perfect tuning and aerodynamic design. The design focuses on optimal rigidity between the crank and back. This ensures that all your strength is transferred into speed.
However, the 2017 Edition has even more to offer: it is 400g lighter than previous models, the frame is in general 10% stiffer and the frame tubes are slimmer and lighter. The 2017 Edition is furthermore equipped with a stiffer front frame as well as a stiffer head tube construction.
Compared to the original Racebike model, the position of the brakes has been moved to improve the bike’s aerodynamics. Besides the light-weighted carbon chainguard, it is possible to equip the Racebike 2017 Edition with a custom-made carbon fiber back and seat.
