The Top End Force K is a missile.
The Force K is a kneeling position handcycle in a choice of three custom, made-to-measure aerodynamic designs.
The Force K Kneeler is used by the most able athletes, while the Force K Para Kneeler is for paraplegics who prefer the kneeling position to that of reclined and the Force K Double Amp. Kneeler defines the kneeling position for amputees.
Just like the rest of the Force Series, the center frame construction has an internal rib which reinforces the frame making it super stiff for maximum transfer of power. What makes the Force K different from the Force and Force G is that it requires detailed engineering measurements which can be viewed on the order form.
