Feed controls increase speed of ice handbike

The specially-designed handbike wheelchairs experience problems on bends as soon as roads are wet from rain. In order to make speed achievable on ice and not just when travelling in straight lines, a Dutchman developed a special construction. By using gas springs he was able to achieve speeds of 14 km/h on bends. With a gas-filled feed control this speed increased by 50 percent. This is made possible by using a combination of feed control and gas filling to enable an inclined plane to be compensated for within the horizontal range, which is facilitated as the seat of his handbike tilts by 10 to 15 degrees on bends.
