FreedomRyder handcycles stand out from all the others in many ways. Our design philosophy: "Simplicity is always the best design." ("Less is more.") From its basic clean frame layout to its quick and easy adjustment and disassembly, there simply isn't another handcycle on the market today that offers as many advantages or innovations.
Tremendous adjustability. More than any other handcycle.
There are many unique, proprietary features about our handcycles that makes them different from all the others. First, there is a big problem all the other handcycles have. They twist up your legs when making a turn. The sharper the turn, the more they twist up your legs. Our unique FREEDOMRYDER design eliminates this problem. By careful placement of the rider relative to the headset tube and proper choice of headset angle, our proprietary design means that your legs won't get twisted up no matter how sharp you turn. Plus, our FREEDOMRYDERS will turn sharper than any other handcycle out there. This design aspect is greatly appreciated by our owners when maneuvering in tight areas. Our handcycles also have a unique "neutral feeling" while riding that no other handcycles have. Riders feel it right away when test riding them and say that they feel like no other handcycle they've ridden.

All handcycles in the FRH-1 line come with top quality Shimano components.
A high quality disc brake comes "standard". This is an option on most other handcycles.
Phil Wood hubs and Schwalbe or Continental tires.
The trend in handcycling has changed from wide tubular and V style cranks to bicycle crank arms with adjustable handle widths. Another new innovation of ours that addresses this trend is our new adjustable T-handle spacers. We've created the ability to easily change the width of the T-handles to suit your style. By simply changing the length of a bolt and spacer you can change their width to 14"-16"-18" in just minutes. You can order the bike with the spacing you think you want and if you decide later that its not quite right, you can order longer or shorter bolts and spacers for that custom fit at a very reasonable price.
All our handcycles come with our simple, unique, patented cable routing system. This keeps the cables out of your field of view, minimizes their movement and don't flop around.
This not only keeps them from wearing, it gives the pedals a balanced feeling in your hands like there's no cables attached to them at all.
Our FRH-1 handcycles have a proprietary headset design. You can separate your bike into two pieces quickly and easily if needed for travel or to fit into any vehicle. No greasy head tube bearings to deal with.
