The iconic Pino has been redesigned for 2021 and has even more clever features than its brilliant predecessors. Responding to user feedback and thousands of kilometres of test-riding, the Pino now has an adjustable, telescopic frame which means that it can be shortened to the size of a mountain bike, it now has indexed, adjustable handlebars, thru’ axle frame and forks. It retains all the great characteristics its thousands of happy users love:
- Recumbent-upright combination making communication easy
- Unrestricted view for both riders
- Freewheel in front – ideal for families and special needs
- Excellent manoeuvrability thanks to its short wheelbase
First, you’ll see the difference, and then you’ll see the brilliance: the frame design. Like its predecessor model, the new PINO also has a two-part frame. However, instead of a frame joint for taking them apart, there’s an ingenious telescoping mechanism. In other words: you can shorten the wheelbase by simply pushing the two parts together. The front section slides smoothly into the main frame, the geometry remains perfectly aligned, and the slack of the greasy chain is taken up by the frame-quick-adjust assembly.
Thanks to this new technology, the PINO can be parked in any hallway or shed, requiring no more space than a normal bike. With the handlebars folded down, it can even be made compact enough to fit on any standard rear-mounted car rack.
Even more mind-blowing: the shortened PINO is rideable! At its minimum length, the wheelbase is roughly equivalent to that of a city bike, and the handling and turning radius are more or less the same.
There are also big changes for the little ones! Thanks to the length-adjustable crank arms and a seat adapter, co-pilots as small as one metre tall can simply hop on and start pedalling – no extra crankset is needed!
As a semi-recumbent tandem, the PINO has always had special handlebars. But now, Hase have managed to make them even more ergonomic. The width, angle and height of the new handlebars can be easily adjusted to individual riders. As a result, riders of any size and stature can find the perfect handlebar position.
Two riders or heavy cargo – a PINO has a lot to carry. To make the PINO even safer and more enjoyable to ride, Hase have improved the stability in many areas. Furthermore, both cranksets are now roughly 30 mm lower than on the old PINO. As a result, the rear rider’s feet can reach the ground more easily, and the front rider pedals slightly downwards.
