Innovative inclination compensation on sporty Ice handbikes increases cornering speeds by 50 %

Usual handbike sport sledges have problems in the curves even on wet roads. In order to be able to make speed on ice not only on the straights, a Dutchman further developed his special construction for this special vehicle. With standard gas springs, it used to be able to go 8.7 mi/h in curves. With a gas-filled oil brake from ACE, this speed increased by 50 percent. This is due to the possibility of compensating for an inclined plane in the horizontal area with a combination of oil brake and gas filling. This is because the seat of his handbike tilts by 10 to 15 degrees when cornering.
