The Invacare Top End Excelerator Custom Handcycle is similar to the Excelerator Stock model but offers more custom options: various seat widths, wider crank option, various color options, and more. This custom recreational handcycle can be ready to ship in 3-5 weeks. If you prefer to try the Fast Ship Excelerator Stock model click here.

If you want a specific seat width or color, our custom Excelerator Handcycle can be built to your specifications, plus you can order the V crankset option with its wider cranks to allow more clearance for those who are tall or big. Creating a perfect, custom fit chair requires a few more days of production, but it is worth it for those looking for a streamlined fit.

Handcycling is a great way to have fun, get fit and stay active so you can enjoy life to the fullest – so get cranking. Stable, maneuverable and easy to transfer into and out of, the Excelerator Handcycle can go up to 15 mph. The smooth Shimano® shifter lets you tackle hills or level terrain with equal ease. The 7-speed Shimano® hub with reverse braking means your hands never have to leave the pedals. The QuadGrips or tri-pin quad hand pedals are popular options and the mountain drive transmission option is great if you have low endurance or steep terrain to climb.

Totally adjustable, the Excelerator Handcycle features a simple fore-aft sliding seat, uncomplicated adjustable footrest system and a straightforward crank height adjustment with a fully adjustable chain tension idler so there is no need to add or remove chain links. Standard safety features include: reflectors, full chain guard, footrest safety straps, safety flag, cushion and seat restraint.

    Measuring for a recreation hand cycle is super easy because it is so adjustable.

    Seat width: If you use a wheelchair for mobility, simply measure the seat width and order the same width for your handcycle. All of our handcycles all come with seat cushions that match the width of the seat.


    Handcycle Wheelchair Meaurement Guide CLICK TO ENLARGE

    Seat Depth1

    Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Optimal contact between the legs and the seat increases stability for the body.

    Back Height2

    Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Sport users need enough height for upper body support, yet low enough to allow the arms and trunk to rotate freely.

    Rear Seat to Floor3

    Measurement from the ground to the rear seat edge. Relative to the front seat-to-floor dimension, this determines the rearward slope ("dump" or "squeeze") of the seat. Sport chairs usually have more dump for extra upper body stability.

    Hanger Angle4

    Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. Sport users often use very tight angles to be able to rotate in the smallest possible space.

    Front Seat to Floor5

    Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Do not add the footrest clearance if the chair will be foot-propelled.

    Wheel Camber6

    Angle of the wheel relative to the vertical. More camber improves stability and agility, but also limits ability to pass through narrow spaces. A typical sport chair uses nine to twelve degrees of camber.

    Seat Width7

    Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Sport chairs are typically as narrow as possible to save weight which improves agility.

    Footrest Width8

    Measure from the inside of each leg rest tubing the distance or desired distance between leg rests.

    Backrest Angle9

    Measure the angle of the back post to the floor. Ninety degrees will be perpendicular to the floor, to approximate the angle from the back post to the seat, subtract two degrees from measurement for every .5" of dump.

    Center of Gravity10

    Measure from the front of the seat back post to the center of the rear axle.

    Seat to Footrest Length11

    Measure from the edge of the seat upholstery to the top rear of the footrest.

      Love the Force 3 Handcycle!

      I have ridden the Force 3 hand cycle 2 times since I received it 5 days ago. I am impressed with the bike. It is very light weight and very stable, due to the length. I highly recommend having a bike shop look it over before a buyer gets on it. They also adjusted foot rests and seat to the correct positions. All for $20. I also never saw this type of gear shifter for the 10 gears on the wheel, where you push 2 different levers. I rode 1/2 hour in 1st (wheel)gear . I was able to shift the top 3 handlebar gears, this gave me enough resistance. When I got back to the bike shop, they informed me how to change the gears. My original concerns of the moving cables was erased after riding it. I didn't want moving cables originally. After riding the Force 3 It is best to have brake and gear shifter on handle bars, so I do not have to take my hands off the hand cranks.
      To make a U-Turn Owners manual said to stop cranking and hold hand crank at 11-2 o'clock position. THANK YOU I LOVE IT.

      Glad you are enjoying your new ride!

      I'm back!

      I took my first ride after delivery, so so fun. I used to ride my road bike for long trips, to get back on the road was so so good for me. I can't ride as far any more, but to get on the road again, I have no words for how amazing that is.

      Best brand

      I shopped brands high and low, this is by far the best bang for your buck. I like I could add the parts I need on this custom version. Thank you for the gift Michelle!
