Versatile Effective Efficient
Coyote S8 is a quick release wheelchair attachment designed to fit the majority of rigid frame wheelchairs and will transform your wheelchair into a brilliant sleek and sporty handcycle.
There are some great advantages of a handcycle equipped with an IGH (Internal Geared Hub) over a conventional derailleur system such as higher reliability and robustness with minimal maintenance (because it is a sealed system), easy adjustment, and less fragile to crashes or being dropped.
Another major advantage is being able to change gears whilst at a standstill, this is especially important to handcyclists as gear changes do not have to be anticipated before stopping.
Opting for the Coaster brake version means that there are no brake levers to contend with, no cable adjustment and no adjusting of brake blocks. Just push the bars away from you and the integrated coaster brake will bring you to a halt

Coyote S8 can be connected too most rigid frame wheelchairs via a docking system that is permanently mounted under the wheelchair. Once connected it takes only seconds to dock on.
The rear of the docking system is bolted to either the axle or a bar going across the back of the chair. The front of the docking system is bolted to the bar underneath the seat canvas towards the front of the seat. Some chairs do not have this bar, Kuschall for example. In this case we tailor a bar to the chair, which is then bolted on using clamps or the existing holes.
Our docking system has succeeded in passing vigorous fatigue trials in the USA this included being drop tested 6,667 times along with a multi drum (rolling road) test of 200,000 cycles without failure or the need for adjustment on any component.
(Testing was carried out using the Viper power cycle connected to a Quickie GPV wheelchair)
The docking system will add around 1.7 kg to the weight of the wheelchair and once fitted actually strengthens the frame of the wheelchair.
