UPHILL WITH E-POWER AND DIFFERENTIAL
The yellow bullet with knobby tires is equipped with a differential, which transmits the power from the chain to both rear wheels. The tires almost never lose traction, because the rider’s weight rests on the rear axle. And as the saying goes: better traction, better action.
DOWNHILL WITH GROUND CLEARANCE
Bombing downhill, leaning into corners, testing your limits – this is when the right materials are everything. That’s why the sporty chassis is equipped with HASE BIKES’ own linear derailleur with plenty of space below. Independent wheel suspension with a sway bar and special air shocks smooth out the ride on even the bumpiest of trails.
SPECIAL NEEDS? BRING THEM ALONG?
Also typical KETTWIESEL: there are all kinds of adaptive pedals and accessories for riders with disabilities and a penchant for off-road adventures! As a delta trike, the CROSS STEPS is also engineered for turning on a dime, parking upright, and hitching up for tandem fun.
HASE BIKES linear derailleur
Bottoming out on jump landings? Ouch. That’s why, for the CROSS, we developed a linear derailleur that would offer more ground clearance than standard derailleur cages. The 11-speed system made from CNC-machined aluminum is sophisticated, but not finicky. And it’s also very forgiving of shifting mistakes.
Shimano Steps mid-motor
Riders who aren’t able or willing to rely on pure muscle power can switch on the Shimano Steps mid-motor any time they need support. The smooth and quiet system is seamlessly integrated into the bottom bracket … and makes ascents feel like straightaways.
