Cycling has become one of the most popular participation sports/activities, which can easily be assumed to be available to everyone…however, for those who don’t enjoy normal joint mobility at the hip or knee, whether that be from an acute injury, or something more permanent, cycling is not easily accessible but offers huge benefits.
The Retroflex (retrofittable) cranks overcome these barriers, and are the origin of Unicam. They were designed for a young boy born with congenital shortening of both legs who dreamed of being able to ride a conventional bicycle with his friends, rather than a hand pedalled tricycle
The Retroflex crank can be fitted to one or both sides of a bike i.e. if you only have one knee/hip with a movement restriction, the crank only needs to be fitted to that side. If through regular use improved range of movement is achieved; the crank can be further adjusted to increase range of movement.
Supplied either as a self-fit system. Alternatively, we offer a free fitting service in our Somerset workshops or one of our growing number of national cycle shops stockist can also assist but may charge a small fee.
