Horizon (Off-Road) | Handcycle + Electric (H)

Horizon | Handcycle + Electric (H)

Did you know that 1.42 million miles (i.e. more than one-third of all road miles in the U.S.) are still unpaved gravel or dirt roads?  Want to ride them all?  Well, the Horizon is here to explore the rugged backcountry where getting out there has never been more fun. 

The Horizon handcycle is the first of its kind. This shaft-driven Horizon handcycle paired with our powerful electric drivetrain allows riders with various ability levels the opporunity to reach new heights and explore new territory.

We designed a robust, independent front and rear air-shock suspension and paired it with our industry leading electric drive system. The base model comes standard with one battery pack totaling 1kWh with a range of 25-40 miles per charge, and the option of adding up to 3 more modular battery packs for an astounding 100-160 miles of range. Taking it one step further, we developed a set of key adaptive components, offering a wider range of physical abilities a new way to ride the trails or quite possibly, the opportunity to ride again. The Horizon was designed from the ground up to be modular. That means you can pick which adaptive components work for you and leave out the others to create the perfect ride for you. 

Note: Although our Electric Adventure Vehicles (EAV) appeal to and can accommodate a wide variety of ability levels, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to determine whether the Horizon is the best fit for them. Outrider will provide information about the functionality of its products, but we are not trained professionally to make medical evaluations and recommendations. For this information, please consult your medical professional.

We stand behind what we build.  Every Outrider is assembled by hand in Fletcher, NC by our highly skilled assembly team.  Before we bring a product to the market we prototype it extensively, and then take those prototypes and torture test them in the most grueling and brutal scenarios possible to make sure they're going to stand up to serious use.  And when we say warranty, we mean it - in the unlikely scenario you do need to warranty a part all you need to do is call us at 828-654-7555 where you'll speak with one of our team members at the shop.  We'll pinpoint the issue, request proof of issue, and then do whatever needs to happen to fix that part and get you back out there riding.  

2 Year Limited Warranty - Includes All Non-Wear Items 

Example: Tires, tubes, brake pads and similar wear items are not covered under the warranty

Example: Batteries, motor, frame and similar non-wear items are covered under the warranty

DISCLAIMER:  ALL OUTRIDER USA TRIKES AND FRAMESETS SHOULD BE PERIODICALLY CHECKED for indicators of stress and/or potential failure, including cracks, deformation, corrosion, paint peeling, dents, and any other indicators of potential problems, inappropriate use, or abuse. These are important safety checks and very important to help prevent accidents, bodily injury to the rider, and shortened useful product life cycle of a Outrider USA bicycle or frameset. Failure to follow this warning may result in catastrophic failure of the component or tricycle, which may lead to serious personal injury or death. 

All other remedies, obligations, liabilities, rights, warranties, express or implied, arising from law or otherwise, including but not limited to, any claimed implied warranty of merchantability, any claimed implied warranty arising from course of performance, course of dealing or usage of trade, and any claimed implied warranty of fitness, are disclaimed by Outrider USA and waived by the original owner. If any provision is found unenforceable, only that provision shall be stricken and all others shall apply.

Not every component is designed for every conceivable use.  Broken parts resulting from riding performed on surfaces or locations not intended for the particular model can shorten the useful product life cycle of the trike and invalidate warranty of certain parts.  Broken parts resulting from performing jumps, tricks, riding down stairs, aggressive riding, riding in severe climate, riding with excessively heavy loads, commercial riding and all other types of nonstandard use will also shorted the useful product life cycle and invalidate warranty of certain parts.

This warranty is void if the trike is subjected to abuse, neglect, improper repair, improper maintenance, alteration, an accident, or other abnormal excessive or improper use.  Additionally, this warranty applies only to the original owner of the trike and is not transferrable to subsequent owners.

Every Outrider ships fully assembled in a custom crate.  Within the USA, transit time is usually 5 business days or less.  Please be aware that this is shipping time, not including build time.  We customize each build per the customer's request, so this shipping time is in addition to current build times.  Most often, your Outrider will be shipped LTL "Less Than Truckload", which means it will arrive on an 18 wheeler.  If your delivery location is inaccessible by an 18 wheeler it is your responsibility to notify us prior to shipment so that we can make alternate delivery arrangements.  Scissors and/or wire cutters are recommended to disassmble the crate, and remove your Outrider from the crate.

"It is one of the most revolutionary concepts to ever hit the world of mountain biking." -- The Active Times

"For the past few years, Outrider has been earning praise and breaking records with its pedal-assisted electric trikes, but its latest design is gearing up to be its most rewarding endeavor yet." -- Gizmag

"It's a great design that would give more freedom of mobility to people who don't have full function of their limbs, but who would want to experience the great outdoors like anyone else." -- TreeHugger


The Horizon was brought to life through an amazingly successful Kickstarter campaign.  The Kickstarter campaign filled the first production run that is set to ship in December of 2014.  We are now accepting down payments for the second production run that is set to ship in April of 2015.
