A handbike and a handcycle are both synonyms of a cycling sport that is popular with those with limited use of their legs. It requires the biker to cycle with their hands rather than their legs. This product was invented in the 1980s and has been used for recreation, fitness, and competitions. Handcycles differentiate themselves from classical bikes by having 3 wheels compared to the traditional 2 wheels on a bicycle.
There have been many new models of hand cycles since their invention, with new technology and abilities pushing performances. Today, the advancement in technology has made handcycling a popular sport for both leisure seekers and competitive athletes.
The newest model of hand bike by Quickie is now available to all those passionate about cycling! Delivering the same outstanding performance as the Shark RS (the first choice hand bike for professional athletes), the RT is here for leisure cyclists or for semi-professionals that would enjoy more flexibility and adjustability when riding.
Increase your performance and become the best athlete you can be without compromising on comfort. In addition, hand cyclers have shown to enjoy their rides with the Shark RT due to its high comfort and increased safety.

An interesting fact about the sport of hand cycling is that it has become a popular sport for its use as a physical activity in therapy and rehabilitation. This method demands arms strength, balance, and coordination as well as endurance and general fitness. The circular motion required activates many muscles that are not typically used on a daily basis. This method of physical therapy is popular in both children and adults: cycling truly has no age limit! Find pleasure in sports again by trying hand biking.
