We recommend this model for „lowracer” construction class and other types, in which aerodynamics and a low weight of the seat are valued.

For a sitting position we recommend the models „Easy”, „Carrier” and „Trike”. These come with a construction, which is designed to avoid slipping of the seat. The models „Carrier” and „Trike” have a wider seat. The „wings” located on the back of the model „Carrier” enable the attachment of backpacks and also provide a better sitting experience for your back.
