New PINO, New Possibilities
Tandems for Everyone & Everything
The best PINO since PINO
One-of-a-kind versatility – that’s something the PINO has always had. Thanks to its front recumbent seat, the PINO can be used as not only a tandem, but also a family taxi or cargo bike. In this respect, nothing has changed! What’s new, however, is that kids as small as one meter (3’3”) in height can now ride in front – with no need for an additional crankset. Also new: a frame-telescoping mechanism that makes it possible to shorten the PINO’s wheelbase – to save space when parking or to make the bike more compact for transport and solo rides. And then there’s also the new handlebars and other optimized features that have made the new generation of PINOs even safer and more enjoyable to ride. In other words, the PINO is still in a league of its own. Now more than ever.
E-Power for City and Country
A picture is worth a thousand words – so what is there to add? Maybe that the front rider does not need any special skills, just a little trust in the rear rider. Or that the motor has a walk assist function that makes it easier to push a fully loaded PINO. And that there’s an extensive range of accessories for cargo, young riders and people with special needs. And now for a word that’s worth a thousand pictures: climate protection. As a leisure bike, family taxi, and cargo bike all wrapped into one, the PINO STEPS is a truly viable alternative to owning a car. Truly. Or at least a second car.
To the Ends of the Earth or the Waltrop Outback
At what point does a bike ride become a tour? When you’ve passed the 100 km mark? After your first night under the stars? When you’re carrying more than 20 kg of luggage? In our opinion: as soon as you take off on your PINO TOUR. Once the panniers on the lowrider are packed and the tent, sleeping bags and other supplies are strapped onto the rear rack, you can hardly wait to hop on and ride into the horizon. Then switch seats and continue down the path of wanderlust.
The PINO TOUR lets you explore the world with all your senses. The breeze plays with your hair, carrying with it a myriad of scents – from the roadside wildflowers, the grazing cattle, and the rustling pines. Okay, you may also catch a whiff of tractor diesel now and then ;-). But one thing’s for certain: every trip will feel like a tour. From the very first kilometer.
PINO. PINOO. PINOOO. It's that adjustable.
The new PINO has a telescoping frame. But what does that mean? It means that you can shorten the wheelbase by simply pushing the front section into the main frame. And why would you want to do that? For example, to create a nimble cargo bike with the wheelbase of a normal city bike. Or to be able to park your family taxi in tight spaces in cellars, garages, or other parking areas. Or to shrink your tandem’s wheelbase to that of a 29-inch mountain bike so that it can be carried on any rear-mounted car rack. That’s why!
The robust handlebars are manufactured using swaging technology. They can be folded down into the transport position by loosening a single bolt and have adjustable stops for returning them to the preferred angle setting. If the recumbent seat is removed and the PINO is pushed together to its shortest length, then it fits onto any standard rear-mounted car rack. Which means it can be transported with almost any car!
