EASYLEGS CONNECT – CHANGE YOUR WHEELCHAIR INTO A BIKE
The EasyLegs Connect is a single-wheel drive that you can attach to your wheelchair. In this way, you can transform your wheelchair into a tricycle, which is propelled by the force from you legs. Thanks to its low weight, it is easy to connect. The EasyLegs can be combined with our accessories to perfectly suit your needs.
ADVANTAGES OF EASYLEGS CONNECT
The greatest advantage of EasyLegs Connect, compared to the EasyLegs Pro, is that you arrive at your destination sitting in your own wheelchair.
When using the optional electric pedal support, it offers the same comfort and ease of use as a conventional scooter, with no disadvantages like cold legs and the decrease of condition by sitting completely immobile.
The EasyLegs Connect with electric pedal support can also be used by people with reduced leg function. Even if you cannot move your legs in a complete circle, the pedal support helps you wherever you need it. In this way, it helps to maintain the strength in your legs and to keep up your fitness.
THE ADDED VALUE OF AN EASYLEGS
- Cycling in the open air
- The sportiness of a bicycle
- The ease of a scooter
- Training stronger and more flexible legs
- In 20 minutes, you stretch and bend your legs 1000x
A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE FOR A SCOOTER
The EasyLegs with electric pedal support offers the best of both worlds. It combines the convenience of a scooter with the movement you would get with a regular bike. Even if you can’t perform a complete pedaling circle, the pedal support helps you wherever you need it.
Just like the accelerator of a scooter, the EasyLegs has a lever to control the electric pedal support. With this lever, you can decide yourself how much assistance you need for your pedaling. You can do all the work yourself, or leave it completely over to the pedal assist.
The pedaling assistant of the EasyLegs
Where a conventional system drives the wheels directly, the EasyLegs pedal assist is connected to the lower axle that moves the pedals. This means that even if you fully open the handle, your legs still perform the pedaling movement. This is the greatest advantage of a supporting engine compared with the engine of an e-bike.
If people don’t know that you’re using the pedal support, they will not notice that your legs are supported while cycling. The pedaling movement looks completely natural, even with the pedal support. The EasyLegs is more than a new option; it’s a healthy alternative to the scooter.
You can also buy the hind part of the EsyLegs Pro later and then magically convert your EasyLegs Connect into a complete tricycle.
THE EASYLEGS PRO OR THE EASYLEGS CONNECT?
The EasyLegs tricycles are available in two versions: the Pro and the Connect. The Pro is comparable to a three-wheel recumbent, while the Connect is a single-wheel extension that you connect to your wheelchair to transform it into a full three-wheeler.
The EasyLegs Pro
The Pro was developed to cycle long distances at high speed. It is light, has little resistance during cycling and the wide wheelbase with a 9 degree frame curve provides extra stability. The seat height can easily be adjusted to the driver; high for a good overview or low for better stability. Especially with the seating area at a low position, it is possible to take turns at high speed without tilting.
The seat position can be quickly adjusted without tools. Even people with little mobility in the hips or people with overweight can sit comfortably by tilting the backrest backwards.
It is also possible to adjust the rear axle position, depending on your personal preference. Positioning the rear axle rearwardly results in greater pressure on the front wheel, making it less slippery and allowing you to ride safely uphill. Positioning the rear axle more towards the front, reduces the turning circle of the bicycle and provides easier maneuverability in the city.
The Pro can be easily disassembled without tools so that it fits into the car.

The Easylegs Connect
The Connect has been developed for use in combination with your wheelchair. The greatest advantage is that you don’t have to transfer from your wheelchair to the bike. This renders the Connect especially convenient for social and daily activities such as shopping, visiting friends and taking a ride in the park.
The Connect is smaller than the Pro and therefore even easier to carry in the car or store at your home. If you already have a regular hand bike that can be connected to your wheelchair, it is usually possible to link the Connect in the same way.
TRANSFORMING YOUR THREE-WHEEL BIKE
You do not need to buy a new bike if you want to use the Pro instead of the Connect or vice versa. If you have already purchased the Connect, you only need to purchase the back part of the Pro. If you already have the Pro, you only need to purchase the connector to link the front part of the Pro to your wheelchair. If you want both, you can buy the Connect, together with the back part of the Pro. You can then transform the Connect into the Pro without the need of any tools.
