is an innovative bicycle. Thanks to smart technological solutions it combines the
advantages of a 4-wheel vehicle with comfort and light weight. The PONY4 offers
solutions when a classical bike is not good enough in means of stability, cargo
capacity, seat ergonomics or safety.
The PONY4 is a joint initiative of 2 German and one Czech company: Velomo, FLEVÒ International and Katanga
All are active in the development, production or sales of recumbent bicycles and velomobiles.
It all started with the search for a bicycle which I can ride even with
my “limitations”. I have had multiple sclerosis since 1996 and for the
last two years I had increased problems with my sense of balance. This
led to the fact that I was threatened to fall down from my normal bike. I
was almost ready to distance myself from the idea of being able to ride
It reads like the most unlikely choice but we don’t regret it!
When we decided to set up our sustainable small-hold at
the southern edge of the Scandinavian mountains we knew we were going
to aim for a cutting edge logistic solution.
decided to acquire a dog, I realized that I would have to give up some
activities that I like. Or at least limit them. One of my big joys was biking.
I could of course lead my dog next to my bike but that is in city traffic not
safe for me nor my dog. Enjoy time on the bike in the nature without my
four-legged friend would be too sad. But one should never give up hope! And the
solution was found with the PONY4!
