The NUKE Off Road Recumbent handcycle is a unique, capable, rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle with rear suspension.  Rear wheel drive handcycles are superior and much more capable than their front wheel drive counterparts.  Traction and hill climbing with a rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle are second to none.  The Nuke was developed for riders not able to or not interested in riding in the prone position (kneeling, face down). The recumbent position is preferred by some riders.

The Nuke rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 24” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The frame joints in the Nuke are reinforced for integrity and reliability out on the trail.

Price starts at: $7,950.00 USD
