The KETTWIESEL CROSS STEPS: the delta trike for up and down and whoopee!

The recumbent all-terrain trike, the off-road delta, or the daredevil of the HASE BIKES family – this is the CROSS. The KETTWIESEL CROSS.

Recumbent trike with a license for off-roadThe yellow bullet with the knobby treads sails serenely over roots and rocks, carves up the tightest corners, and keeps the squirrels watching safely from the trees. Be it off-road thrills in the forest or insane challenges at the bike park, one thing is clear: the fun-seeking CROSS has a nose for the road less traveled!

Also typical KETTWIESEL: for riders with special needs and/or off-road genes, there are all kinds of special pedals and accessories! As a delta trike, the CROSS is also perfect for turning on a dime, parking upright, and hitching up for tandem fun.

Downhill with special derailleur and suspensionBombing downhill, leaning into corners, testing your limits: this is the off-roader’s raison d’être. And good equipment is everything. The CROSS has an extremely sporty chassis and keeps its cool on the gnarliest stretches – thanks to the independent wheel suspension with sway bar and special air shocks.

Bottoming on jump landings? Ouch. This is why we custom-developed our own HASE BIKES linear derailleur for the CROSS. It has more ground clearance than standard derailleur cages. The 11-speed system made from CNC-machined aluminum is sophisticated, but not finicky. It’s also very forgiving of shifting mistakes. Sound good? It’s out of this world!

Uphill with differential and top tractionSurrender to that steep, pebbly slope? Not this trike! Every CROSS comes with a differential, which transmits power to both rear wheels. And the tires almost never lose traction, because – with a delta – the rider’s weight is over the rear axle.

Riders who can’t or would rather not rely on pure muscle power can switch on the Shimano Steps mid-motor any time they need a little energy boost. The smooth and quiet system is seamlessly integrated into the bottom bracket and helps you rocket up the ascents.

Easy transport with foldable frameSure, you can ride your CROSS over asphalt. But if that’s not exciting enough, the station wagon will also take you and your CROSS from challenge to challenge. Thanks to the ingenious folding mechanism, three quick steps is all it takes to transform the trike into a compact unit measuring a maximum of 38 inches (96 cm) that fits easily into the trunk. Awesome, isn’t it?

CROSS in Cape Town

Bike parks: Warstein and Winterberg are hot. Cape Town is cool. Or is it the other way around? We found the ride through the Tokai Forest amazing! And not just because of the palm trees.

CROSS-selling in Cape Town

Roger works in climate research and, as a dyed-in-the-wool cyclist, sells specialized bikes – including models from HASE BIKES – in his free time. After testing a CROSS, he immediately decided to keep it. Unfortunately, we had to fly back…


The CROSS challenge

Mobility has always been an important topic for him: Gunther Belitz knows about special needs and adaptive bikes – also from personal experience. As an athlete, he loves challenges. This time, the challenge was: conquering the Winterberg bike park on a KETTWIESEL CROSS.

Forty-eight degrees Fahrenheit (9°C), heavy rain, cold wind: this is the town of Winterberg in Germany’s Sauerland region on a Saturday in early June. “When we first arrived and I saw the steep, muddy course from up top – well, it was pretty intimidating,” admitted Gunther Belitz frankly.
