DR. JON D. FRANKS, THE FIRST WHEELCHAIR IRONMAN,
BRINGS TO YOU THE NEW LIGHTWEIGHT HANDCYCLE

"Lightning is the first Handcycle worthy of being called a racing cycle. Light, Stiff, Responsive and extremely comfortable, it is also fast and stable, retaining maneuverability. Helmets off the Lightning. It will satisfy both the serious competitor and the serious tourist."

Dr. David Cornelson AXA World Ride 95 World Champion

Lightning takes handcycling out of the dark ages or somebody's garage to NASA-Like Engineering at 26lbs deliverable to you. Each bike will be custom fitted to your body measurement, just as racing wheelchairs are, to assure a perfect fit.
