Much more than an off-the-shelf hand cycle with fat tires, the all new Lasher Sport ATH -All Terrain Handcycle was specifically designed for use off the pavement, yet is still very adept on the pavement. A generous 6” of ground clearance helps you get over rough trails and gnarly terrain. That’s enough clearance to pop up or drop down a standard height curb when biking in the concrete jungle.
The frame is built from custom extruded oversized magnesium for maximum strength and durability. The forks and backrest are built from 6061-T6 aluminium. The seat back connects to the axle with dual adjustable supports for additional triangulated rigidity.
The ATH comes with more wheel options than any other hand cycle. The standard 26” mountain bike wheels can be outfitted with any 26” mountain bike tire sold in your local bike shop, so servicing the wheels is easy. The standard wheel set includes quick release 26” (559) rear wheels with Schwalbe mountain bike tires, the same wheel size as a 25” (559) wheelchair wheel, so you can use the same wheels on your wheelchair as you do on your hand cycle. You may opt for the bolt on rear wheel option which can be outfitted with or without hydraulic disc brakes. You can also get an extra set of 650c road wheels and easily convert your ATH to a road bike. This will also lower the cycle an extra inch to the ground. You may choose a Spinergy 29er wheel set which adds an extra inch and a half of ground clearance… a whopping 7.5” of ground clearance! Or, if you’re into winter biking (or beach biking), you may choose to go with a 4” wide tire on an 80mm rim. This provides for 7” of ground clearance.
Wheel Sizes Options:
25″ (559) wheelchair wheel
26″ (559) mountain bike wheel
29er (622) mountain bike wheel
26″ (559) 80mm wide winter wheel
650c (571) road wheel
700c (622) road wheel
Since the ATH is front wheel drive, the riding position is familiar and comfortable. With the seating designed to be more upright and forward, there is plenty of weight on the front drive wheel to get up relatively steep slopes without drive wheel slip. This bike wasn’t designed for extremely steep hills or crazy slopes, but it will perform exceptionally well when you want to go trail riding with your mountain bike friends.
The base ATH comes with Shimano SLX components (which are a pretty exceptional component set) and Avid hydraulic disc brakes, some of the best you can put on a bike. From there, you may opt for the Shimano XT or XTR component set. Or, mix and match each component individually. It’s your bike, so you can choose what goes on it.
If accessories are important to you, the ATH has got them. Your ATH can be outfitted with LED headlights and tail lights for night time riding, custom made frame mounted bag for cross country or over night trips, front and rear fenders, click strap seatbelt, integrated hydration system, cycle computer system from Garmin, even a head mount or frame mount ContourHD camera system to make your own YouTube adventure videos. The ATH was designed to accomodate all these accessories… and more are being worked on.
Finally, you want your bike to look good when you’re riding it. The ATH comes in 19 standard powder coat colour choices, and 48 optional powder coat colour choices for a total of over 60 colours! Then we put on our colour matched reflective decals so your bike is more visible when riding at night.
If you’re looking for a hand cycle that can take you beyond the pavement, this bike is for you!
