The for-anything-and-anytime bike: tandem, family taxi, or cargo bike
The PINO ALLROUND is the perfect bike for cycling duos – and for anything you need to carry from A to B.
The tandem: comfort and fun for cycling duos
As a tandem, the PINO offers unprecedented comfort and an exhilarating ride. With its short wheelbase, it is almost as maneuverable as a single-seater. Furthermore, the positions of the recumbent seat and saddle allow for a stronger sense of shared experience, because the riders can communicate effortlessly without having to raise their voices. Furthermore, both riders can enjoy an unrestricted, panoramic view, and there is plenty of space for carrying luggage.
The family taxi: Children’s Crankset mounted in a flash
The PINO can also be converted to accommodate younger riders in the front seat, making it the perfect family taxi. All you need is the Children’s Crankset, which can be mounted to the PINO’s front boom in less than two minutes. This accessory also makes it possible to use the PINO as a parent-child touring tandem. And pedaling breaks are no problem at all: the front rider has a freewheel.
The cargo bike: carry home your weekly shopping with the PORTER BAG and RACK
Converting the tandem to a cargo bike is a piece of cake. With a capacity of 80 to 120 liters, the PORTER BAG on the front seat can even handle a week’s worth of groceries. When not in use, it can be quickly and easily folded up and stowed behind the seatback.
The PORTER RACK, which is mounted under the seat, has a similar cargo capacity. And its low center of gravity guarantees extremely safe and stable handling, even when the bike is fully loaded. The additional RACK BAG keeps the cargo dry. As a special feature of the cargo set: the PORTER Kickstand provides rock-solid stability when the PINO is parked.
Easy transport thanks to two-part frame
It only takes a few short minutes to open the PINO’s frame joint. Then the two frame halves will fit into practically any compact car. And once you’ve reached your destination, the tandem can be reassembled in a flash.
The PINO TOUR is our travel tandem for globetrotters – so that you can always reach your destination together.
Recumbent tandem as touring bike
A journey on the PINO TOUR is probably one of the most intense experiences two people can share. As a semi-recumbent tandem, it’s the perfect touring bike: both riders enjoy an unrestricted, panoramic view and can philosophize about everything under the sun without raising their voices.
Unless they disagree … but that wouldn’t be the PINO’s fault. Speaking of philosophy: if the journey is the destination, can you ever really arrive at the same time?
Sturdy support everywhere you go
When you park your PINO in the square, the village dog is usually the first to come investigate. Not far behind him are the giggling children and head-shaking elders with thousands of questions.
Good thing the PINO has no problem standing for long periods on its robust double kickstand. This clever feature can balance a whopping 220 lb (100 kg). Meaning, it’s no problem at all to let one of the village youngsters pose in the recumbent seat for a souvenir photo!
Enough space for everything – but homesickness
Good haul The PINO is a lot like a pack mule, in that it can carry large loads for long distances without losing its “footing.” The PINO TOUR comes with an extra-long lowrider in addition to its rear luggage rack.
The lowrider is more than just a cool name. It has an important function: one large and one small pannier can be securely attached to each side of the rack under the recumbent seat, where they won’t disturb the riders. And the low center of gravity is great for handling.
Just in case: two-part frame and solo rideability
Good thing the PINO can also go solo! That means that one of you can make a quick run to the shop to pick up some red wine while the other starts the pasta. By the time you make it back, the picnic blanket is already set!
And for those unbikeable routes on your journey, the PINO’s two-part frame can be taken apart for easy transport. By car. Or by bus. Or even in a frighteningly small airplane. Once you reach your next destination, you can reassemble the tandem in a flash, pack it up – and hit the road.
Cargo bike, family taxi, tandem: the PINO STEPS is the perfect e-vehicle for the city.
Semi-recumbent tandem as smart bike for the city
How can the groceries get home, the family get to the garden, or the couple get to their favorite picnic spot? On the PINO STEPS, of course! The e-tandem from Hase Bikes takes you quickly from A to B in an environmentally friendly way, and lets you easily bring along all kinds of cargo. Or your favorite co-pilot.
The powerful mid-motor from Shimano can be switched on with the touch of a button when the hill’s too steep, or the will too weak. The battery has a capacity of 418 watts and can be charged in 4 hours.
PINO as cargo bike: let the good times roll!
The colorful City Bag brightens up the concrete jungle and swallows up your load, transforming the Pino into a cargo bike with an attitude. The City Bag slides over the backrest of the recumbent seat and hooks onto the frame in front. Up to 80 liters of cargo can be packed away in this attractive, sturdy, and waterproof “trunk.”
The robust Porter Rack below the bag is a foldable luggage carrier that doubles as a sturdy two-legged kickstand, adding even more load-carrying capacity: e.g. for that case of ginger beer or an XXL watermelon for the neighbors’ shindig.
PINO as family taxi: I’m front and center!
It’s also fine for kids to ride in a wooden crate, either alone or sandwiched between the organic leeks and baguettes. But as we see it: kids aren’t cargo. And they have much more energy to burn than a loaf of bread. That’s why the PINO keeps kids and cargo separate and offers a Children’s Crankset that turns petite passengers from 3’3” (100 cm) in height into active co-pilots – attracting envious stares from their trailer-bound peers.
After burning up all that energy, your tired stoker might just need a little nap. Which is fine, thanks to the freewheel and three-point harness. After all, Daddy has the Shimano motor as a backup, just in case he can’t handle the pedaling on his own.
A PINO built for two: Daisy, Daisy…
The old-fashioned “bicycle built for two” was never as romantic as it sounded in the songs. How could poor “Daisy” give her answer while staring at the back of her beloved’s head and trying to keep pace with the pedaling? Thanks to the two different seat heights on the PINO, the stoker in the front recumbent seat can share the beautiful view – and pleasant conversations – with the captain.
No road is too long when you share the experience. The Shimano will help you get there, and the Rack Bag under the recumbent seat lets you bring along all the provisions you need!
