Owner›s Manual.
Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
The maximum weight limit (includes both the user
and any weight of accessories fitted to the Add-on
Bike) is marked on the serial number label. The serial
number label is located on the frame as well as in the
owner’s manual.
Warranty can only be taken on if the product is used
under the specified conditions and for the intended

Lifetime
The expected life of the add-on bike is 5 years, provided
that:
- It is used in strict accordance with the intended use.
- All service and maintenance requirements are fulfilled.
DANGER!
•
Do not fit any unauthorized electronic equipment.
Area of application
The add-on bike provides the user with the potential to
safely cover long distances in an ergonomically and
ecologically efficient manner, using their own wheelchair.
It expands the activity radius significantly.
In general we recommend the use of a rear wheel
extension or additional weights to improve the traction of
the driving wheel especially when driving uphill. The
attached wheelchair must be equipped in accordance with
road traffic regulations when used on public roads,
pavements and spaces.
The max user weight is 100 kg. The max load for
transported objects (e.g. in bike panniers) is 5kg each.
Please also check the Owner›s Manual of the bike
panniers.
The add-on bike can be operated by people who:
• are physically and mentally capable of safely
operating the device in all operating situations
(steering, braking , pedalling..) and can meet the legal
requirements for use on public roads.
• Have been advised and trained in it´s use by Sunrise
Medical or an authorized Sunrise Medical dealer
Operating Conditions
The ATTITUDE should be able to cope with tarmac
surfaces and firm paths with different topography Avoid
driving on unpaved or loose surfaces (e.g. on loose
gravel, in sand, mud, snow, ice or through deep puddles
of water), as this may expose the user to unforseen risks.

Foreword
ENGLISH
1.0 General safety notes and driving limits
The technology and construction of this add-on bike
have been designed to provide maximum safety.
International safety standards currently in force have
either been fulfilled or exceeded in parts.
Nevertheless, users may put themselves at risk by
improperly using their add-on bikes. For your own safety,
the following rules must be strictly observed.
Unprofessional or erroneous changes or adjustments
increase the risk of accident. As an add-on bike user,
you are also part of the daily traffic on streets and
pavements, just like anyone else. We would like to
remind you that you are therefore also subject to any
and all traffic laws. Be careful during your first ride in this
add-on bike. Get to know your add-on bike.
WARNING!
• NEVER exceed the maximum load of 100 kg for
driver excluding any items carried on the add-on bike.
• If the max user weight of the attached wheelchair is
less than 100 kg, this lower limit will be valid for the
complete system.
• Exceeding the maximum load can lead to damage to
the add-on bike, loss of control, or serious injury to
the user and other people.
• Exercise caution when using the add-on bike. For
example, avoid negotiating obstacles such as, steps,
curbs, path edges or dropping down gaps without
slowing down or braking first.
• Your add-on bike has not been designed for
transportation in a vehicle. DO NOT sit on the add-on
bike during any transportation in a vehicle; always use
a properly secured vehicle seat!!
• This add-on bike should be used exclusively to
convey one person at a time. Any other use does not
comply with the intended purpose.
• Use of the add-on bike is only recommended for
those who have the right physical and psychological
constitution to be able to cope with public traffic.
• Please note that you are subject to any and all traffic
laws when riding in public traffic.
• As a beginner, you should ride particularly carefully at
first.
• Familiarise yourself with the braking distances from
various speeds.
• Familiarise yourself with the general traffic laws!
• In order to achieve a stable ride when travelling
straight ahead, wherever possible, you should avoid
hasty steering movements when travelling at speed or
going round corners.
• A three-wheeled device is always less stable than a
four-wheeled device.
• When you are riding, braking or manoeuvring, always
hold the handles firmly with both hands. Failure to do
so could increase the risk of an accident through
steering error.
• The add-on bike is a mechanical propelled / powered
drive unit. The speed must be adjusted to suit the
technical capabilities of the bike, terrain and operator.
The max speed is 25 km/h. Never exceed this max
speed.
• At night and dawn/dusk, always use the lights.
• When you are travelling long distances, we
recommend that you take a spare battery with you.
6
• Only ride on asphalt paths, or firm, smooth surfaces.
• Use caution when riding over curbs, steps, potholes,
etc. as there is an increased risk of tipping over.
• Adjust your method of driving to your capabilities.
• Ride slowly and carefully, particularly when riding
round corners.
• Do not put your hands in the chain area.
• Do not touch the motor, because it can get very hot.
• Your bike should be serviced by your dealer at regular
intervals. (min. every year)
• As with all moving parts, there is a risk that fingers
could become trapped. Please always handle
carefully.
• If the add-on bike is subject to direct sunlight / low
temperatures for long periods, parts of your add-on
bike could become very hot (>41°C) or very cold (<0°).
• Always make sure that the quick tensioner on the
drive wheel is set properly.
• The add-on bike should not be used in storm
conditions, heavy rain/snow or on slippery or damaged
surfaces.
• You should only use product combinations which have
been approved by Sunrise Medical.
DANGER!
CHOKING HAZARD – This mobility aid uses small parts
which under certain circumstances may present a
choking hazard to small children.
The wheelchairs shown and described in this user guide
may not correspond in every detail exactly to your own
model. However, all instructions are completely relevant,
regardless of possible detail differences.
NOTE: The add-on bikes shown and described in this
user guide may not correspond in every detail exactly to
your own model. However, all instructions are completely
relevant, regardless of possible detail differences. The
manufacturer reserves the right to alter without notice
any weights, measurements or other technical data
shown in this manual. All figures, measurements and
capacities shown in this manual are approximate and do
not constitute specifications.
Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
CAUTION!
• Check the conditions of your wheels, (including the
wheels of your wheelchair) visually, (spokes and rims,
damages of tyres) as well as the pressure of the
tyres. The correct pressure is indicated on the tyre
and for the add-on bike is normally 3-4 bar.
• Low tyre pressure increases the risk of tipping over
especially in bends, it also effects the braking action,
the wear and tear and the driving performance due to
increased rolling resistance.
• Always check that the tread depth of your tyres is
Okay.
• Check the function of the brakes; the add-on bike may
not be used if the brakes are not 100% functioning!
• Avoid damage to the Bowden cables for the gear-shift
and braking units. There is a risk of kinking the cable
when you transfer to/from the bike and if you operate
the crank incorrectly.
• Check the fork by visual inspection for damage (e.g.
cracks and breakages)
• Check that all components, especially the bolts, are
tight.
• Check the connection between the add-on bike and
your wheelchair. Clamping must be on the metal tube
without any parts, (e.g. calf strap, frame protectors), in
between.
• Check the frame and the components of your
wheelchair for any damage, (e.g. cracks)
• Check that the lights are functioning and the reflectors
are sound; they must be visible all the time during
use.
• Ensure that your feet cannot slip off the foot plate of
your wheelchair, if necessary use a special fixation
device.
• Check all cables and electrical connections.
• Remember, the max load for the saddle bags is 5 kg
each.
• Check that the battery is locked correctly and fully
charged.
• Switch the battery on and check the light.
• Always wear a helmet.
Safety instructions – while driving
• Always follow the road traffic regulations when driving
on public roads and footpaths,
• Avoid driving on unpaved or loose surfaces (e.g. on
loose gravel, in sand, mud, snow, ice or through deep
puddles of water).
• Avoid abrupt steering actions
• Avoid driving in parallel to slopes
• Avoid turning on slopes
• On slopes the traction of the driving wheel is lowered
and the braking effect is considerably reduced. The
driving style and speed should be always adjusted so
that the product can be safely stopped at all
• Times without any risk.
• The traction can be improved by using an additional
weight or the rear wheel extension.
• Towing or using a trailer is not permitted.
• Driving on stairs is not permitted.
• Obstacles e.g. curbs must be run over always frontal /
rectangular with very low speed to avoid tipping over
and potential injuries. The max obstacle height is 5 cm,
but this depends on the distance of the stand wheels
and castors to the ground and therefore of the
adjustments of the add-on bike – wheelchair system.
• It must be avoided that any wheelchair components or
parts of your body get trapped when driving over or
passing obstacles. This could result in falls and serious
injuries as well as damage to the
• Add-on bike and the wheelchair.
• When driving on wet surfaces, there is an increase slip
hazard because the traction of the tyres is reduced.
Adapt your driving style accordingly.
• Always use the main brake to slow down your bike. In
case the main brake will fail the parking brake can be
sued as emergency brake once.
• Sliding of the driving wheel during braking can be
avoided by moving your body weight forward.
• Avoid strong braking actions while driving through
bends.
Safety instructions - after your ride:
• Switch off the product immediately when it is not in use
to avoid accidental operation / movements caused by
accidently touching the crank handle.
• Switching off helps to preserve the battery charge.
WARNING!
• It is recommended Make yourself familiar with the
product in flat terrain before driving up or down
slopes.
• Always hold the handles with both hands firmly as
otherwise, there is a high risk of an accident through
steering error.
• Always adapt your speed to your driving capability
and to the traffic - / terrain conditions
• Use particular caution when approaching stairs,
edges, drops or other hazard areas.
• Reduce your speed to walking pace and lean your
body inwards, when driving round a bend.
• When waiting e.g. at a pedestrian crossing, a traffic
light, on hills or slopes or at ramps of any type, always
activate the brake.
• Due to the increased turning circle, turning can be
sometimes impossible e.g. in corridors and other
confined spaces.
• Only use the defined brackets to fix objects,
(additional weights, bike panniers)
• When driving on pedestrian areas, observe the
maximum permitted speed (walking speed)

6.0 Functional Components
Connecting frame (Fig.6.1):
The connecting frame acts as a parking stand, and
fascilitates easy docking/manoeuvring when the add-on
bike is disconnected from the wheelchair.
The height of the stand wheels can be adjusted using the
bolts, (A).
WARNING!
• The stand wheels must always stay min 3 cm above
the ground, when the add-on bike is connected to the
wheelchair.
• The stand wheels must be always adjusted so that the
stand of the add-on bike remains stable when the addon bike is disconnected from the wheelchair.
Brakes:
WARNING!
• The braking effect will be greatly reduced if the surface
is wet, dirty, sandy, stoney, uneven or otherwise
compromised by environmental conditions. It is best to
avoid such conditions, but if this is not possible adapt
your driving style to avoid the risk of potentialy serious
accidents.
• Dirty and wet rims and brake pads also reduce the
braking effect when using rim brakes. For this reason,
you should always adapt your method of riding to the
environmental conditions in order to avoid serious
accidents.
• Always check the efficiency of the brakes before
starting your journey to ensure that they are working
correctly. The brakes should be checked regularly by
your dealer and adjusted if required.
Fig.6.1
A
The add-on bike has two brakes that work independently
from one another.
Parking brake (Fig.6.2 ):
The parking brake is assembled to the fork and locks in
automatically when activated. Therefore the red lever
must lock in. The add-on bike should not move with
activated parking brake to make sure parking is safe
To release the parking brake just push the red lever.
Main brakes (Fig.6.3):
The brakes allow you to safely and comfortably brake
your add-on bike.
Fig.6.2
WARNING!
• If the main brakes should fail, then the parking brakes
may be used once for emergency braking.
• The main brakes must be repaired imediately before
next use.
• Hard and sudden application of the brakes may cause
you to fall forward with your upper body, resulting in
possible injury. Therefore always stabilise yourself by
holding onto the handles firmly with both hands.
• Braking power can be severley decrease by any or all
of the following:
1.
2.
3.
worn tyre tread
air pressure which is too low
soiled and wet tyres.
Fig.6.3
• Ensure that the brake pads and brake discs do not
become contaminated with oil and/or grease. If this
happens the brake pads must be replaced. The brake
disc must be professionally degreased with a brake
cleaner.
• Be aware that the condition of the ground surface can
significantly affect braking efficiency.

Fig.6.5
Derailleur gears/gear hub (Fig.6.5-Fig.6.7):
Gear shifting is carried out using a trigger or grip shift
switch, which are attached to the handgrips.
The Derailleur gears/gear hub enables you to easily
keep moving, regardless of other road conditions.
The derailleur gears may only be switched while
pedalling.
Reducing the pedaling force will allow a fast change of
gears.
The gear hub can also be operated when standing still.
Fig.6.6
Trigger switch (Fig.6.5-Fig.6.6):
The trigger switch on the left handle, activates the 3
gear hub and the trigger switch on the right handle,
activates the 10 derailleur gears.
When operating the big lever the next lower gear will be
activated.
When operating the smaller lever the next higher gear
will be activated.
The chosen gear is indicated at the operating unit.
Grip shift switch (Fig.6.7):
The grip shift switch at the right handle operates the 10
derailleur gears. Turning the gripshift switch to the left
activates the next lower gear. Turning the grip shift
switch to the right activates the next higher gear.

Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
Servicing:
If you have any questions or require any help, please
contact your authorized Sunrise Medical dealer, who will
be pleased to advise you with regards to servicing and
repairs.
Depending on how much you have used your add-on
bike, we recommend that you take it to your dealer at
least every 6 months, to have your add-on bike inspected
by trained personnel.
9.0 Tyre Maintenance
The add-on bike is equipped with a 20“ drive wheel.
Make sure that they are always at the recom¬mended
tyre pressure, as this will significantly affect the driving
characteristics. If the tyre pressure is too low, movement
and manoeuvrability is made more difficult due to the
increased rolling resistance and this also increases the
amount of effort required.
The optimum tyre pressure (usually 3-4 bar) is indicated
on each tyre.
Fitting and repairing tyres:
Before fitting a new inner tube:
• Inspect the base of the rim and he tyre inner wall for
foreign bodies and if necessary clean thoroughly
• Check the condition of the rim tape, particularly at the
valve hole. Only well fitting, strong rim tape offers longterm protection against inner tube damage through burrs
and sharp spoke heads.
11.0 Cleaning/Hygene
• The add-on bike should be cleaned regularly and after
each bigger journey with commercially available,
household cleaning agents.
• If needed only use a little water.
• Handles, display and battery may only be cleaned by
wiping with a damp (not wet) cloth.
• The drive wheel can be cleaned with a soft sponge or
a soft brush.
• The docking pins at the wheelchair and the docking
system can be cleaned with water, a soft sponge or a
soft brush (recommended after each ride).
• After cleaning please use a penetrating oil (e.g.
Ballisto WD 40, Caramba…) to lubricate the moving
parts of the docking.
CAUTION!
• Never use steam or high pressure to clean the
product.
• Never use any abrasive cleaning agents or aggressive,
acidic cleaners.
• Make sure that water will not get into contact with the
electrical connectors.
Hygiene when being reused:
When the add-on bike is to be reused, it should be
prepared carefully, and be wiped and treated with spray
disinfectant on all surfaces which could come into contact
with the user. If you need to do this quickly, you must use
a liquid, alcohol based disinfectant suitable for medical
products and devices. Please pay attention to the
manufacturer’s instructions of the disinfectant you are
using.
Inflation:
Before inflation check all round on both sides, to make
sure that the inner tube is not trapped between the tyre
bead and the rim. Push the valve back gently and pull it
back out, so that the inner tube achieves an optimum
position around the valve.
WARNING!
After fitting, check the tyre pressure. It is essential that
you maintain regulation tyre pressure and keep the tyres
in perfect condition, in order to ensure your personal
safety and keep your add-on bike properly.
10.0 Maitenance Brakes
Maintaining the Brakes:
Check regularly the condition of the brake pads and the
brake disc. After 8000- 10.000km the brake cables
should be replaced completely. The brake pads need to
be replaced if the thickness measured at the thinnest
point is 2,5 mm.

ENGLISH
• Place the sMMI [4] in the correct position, (the
neodrives logo faces the rider) and skewed at an
angle of about 30 degrees to the dock [5] (Fig.3.1).
• Turn the sMMI [4] on the dock [5] using slight pressure
by 30 degrees clockwise so that both components are
in alignment, (Fig.3.2).
• The electrical connections to the controller, motor and
battery pack are thereby automatically established.
Removing:
• Turn the sMMI [4] on its dock [5] by about 30 degrees
anticlockwise.
• The electrical connections are thereby disengaged
and the sMMI [4] can be removed.
• Before removing, the sMMI needs to be switched off,
(see "Functions").
Fig.3.3
CAUTION!
• To protect your add-on bike from unwanted use by a
third party or against theft, the sMMI should always be
removed from the handlebar when not in use.
• Removing the sMMI, though, does not replace

NOTE: When the add-on bike is idle please note:
As described previously, when starting up, the start
menu illustrated in the accompanying image appears,
(Fig.3.6).
• If the pushing aid is activated, you can adjust the
assistance levels from a travel speed of about 8 km/h.
• Motorised support is also immediately available when
activating the pushing aid by moving the pedals.
Explanation:
6.Approximate value of the distance in km, which can
be covered at the preselected assistance level
(remaining range).
7.Indication of the current speed travelled.
8.Assistance level selection.
9.Set assistance level.
10. Recuperation selection.
11. Diverse varying information and warning indicators,
see section 3.2.11 (shown here as remaining battery
capacity)
12. Display of various travelling information.
Exceptions:
After switching on the Add-on bike, the wheel must
complete 2–3 wheel revolutions before the motorised
support will start.
If the pushing aid is deactivated, the motorised support is
immediately available when moving the pedals.
Similarly, the assistance level can also be increased or
decreased when the add-on bike is idle.
The start menu field [12] has several features. By tapping
the controller button [2], various travel information can be
displayed.
The letter “M” to set the menu functions in the left-hand
lower third of the display, is
only visible when at rest. For safety reasons, different
functions cannot be selected when travelling.
CAUTION!
• All parameters that you change will be permanently
stored and are available each time you switch on the
sMMI. The display of your add-on bike may therefore
differ from the illustration.

Selecting the assistance level:
(Fig.3.6-Fig.3.7).
An assistance level that you wish to use (there are 5
possible levels) can be permanently stored by your
specialist dealer as part of a travel profile in the sMMI.
This is instantly available to you after switching on the
sMMI and is shown in the sMMI display as a bar element
[9].
You can also manually change the level of assistance at
any time using the controller
buttons [1] UP and [3] DOWN, whereby the number of
individual white bar elements in the field [8] increases or
decreases according to the level of assistance you
select.
When switching off the add-on bike, any changes made
using the controller buttons are not accounted for. In this
respect, when restarting the add-on bike, only the
assistance level stored in the travel profile is available.
According to the selected assistance level, field [6] gives
an indication of the distance that can be travelled using
motorised support. The higher the selected assistance
level, the more energy is consumed by the motor.
The range to be achieved reduces accordingly.

Activating recuperation:
Fig.3.8
During energy recovery “0 A” is displayed in field [12]
and the charging process [a] symbol in field [11]. If
energy cannot be recovered due to a battery that is
already charged above 90 %, recuperation levels cannot
be selected (shown in the display by symbol [b]). As
soon as the battery is partially discharged, recuperation
can be switched on again (shown in the display by
symbol [a]).
ENGLISH
By activating the recuperation function you can recover
energy when travelling and store it in the battery. This is
possible or useful from a speed of 15 km/h. Activating
recuperation and adjusting is carried out using buttons
[1] and [3] of the controller.
•• One white bar element [10] means: 50 % energy
recovery in the battery (factory setting, configurable)
•• Two white bar elements mean: 100 % energy recovery
in the battery (factory setting,
configurable)
Depending on the battery being used and the speed, at
100 % energy recovery a maximum of 6A–8A is
recovered.
If recuperation needs to be deactivated, this is also
performed using button [1] of the
controller.
10
Automatic recuperation (optional)
Depending on what features the manufacture has
equipped the Add-on bike with, automatic recuperation
can also be activated by pressing the rear wheel brake.
By doing this, every braking process automatically stores
energy in the battery. To ensure controlled and safe
braking, recuperation during braking is set at 40 %
energy recovery.
NOTE:
• Recuperation can only be activated at temperatures
above 0 °C. If the temperature drops below 0 °C,
recuperation is automatically deactivated.
• At speeds of less than 15 km/h the motor is not at its
optimum operating point, which is why recuperation
cannot be activated.
• Activating recuperation is not possible with a fully
charged battery because this could otherwise be
damaged as a result of overcharging. Once at a
battery capacity ≤ 90 %, recuperation can be
activated.

Braking assistant:
Fig.3.9
Before travelling, if you wish, the braking assistant can
be activated. This supports you when braking and
ensures energy recovery to the battery (if this is not
charged above the limit of 90 % or the temperature is
not below 0 °C).
To activate braking assistance, in the start menu (see
section 3.2.2), press button [2] on the controller to move
to the next sub menu. There, select “menu” and in the
next selection screen that appears, select “braking
assistant“.
When selecting “on”, a new menu item opens in which
you can preselect using buttons [1] and [3] of the
controller, any speed from which motor-supported
braking should take place. Settings between 10 and 25
km/h are possible. Once you have set the required
speed, go back to the start menu by pressing button [1]
of the controller several times.
If you wish to deactivate the braking assistant, repeat
the process and select “off”
instead of “on”. Please ensure that when the braking
assistant is deactivated, no automatic braking or energy
recovery to the battery takes place – except when
selecting manual recuperation (see section 3.2.5).
Important information:
When the battery is fully charged, the braking assistant
can in fact be activated, however, not actively used. This
is only possible at a battery capacity of < 90 %. For this
reason, in field [11] of the display, the symbol of the fully
charged battery [a] is shown instead of the symbol for
the activated braking assistant [b].
The sMMI software now waits until the battery is partially
discharged, then automatically switches on the braking
assistant and changes to symbol [b].
Important information on how the braking assistant
works
If you have pre-set, for instance, 20 km/h, the system
maintains this maximum speed irrespective of higher or
lower gradients, provided that the incline is also steep
enough to achieve the set maximum speed. The drive
achieves this until it reaches the maximum motor torque.
If this is exceeded, the braking action gradually subsides
and you need to brake yourself so as not to get faster.
Whilst the motor regulates the vehicle speed under the
conditions described above, power is fed into the
battery, charging it.
As soon as the pedals are pushed, the braking assistant
automatically deactivates. It reactivates if the pedals are
not pushed any more and therefore no force is acting on
the chain or on the force sensor in the wheel hub.
However, the assistant is only effective if, once adjusting
the pedalling, the speed is not more than 25 km/h. By
manually braking the assistant can be taken back to the
speed window where it automatically activates.

Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
Should you require motorised support when pushing, for
example on steep hillsides, then you can activate the
pushing aid. To do this, while you are in the start menu
(see section 3.2.2), press button [2] on the controller to
move to the next sub menu. There, select “menu” and in
the next selection screen that appears, select “pushing
aid”. You can activate or deactivate the pushing aid in the
next window that opens.
Once you have set the required function, go back to the
start menu by pressing button [1] of the controller several
times. An activated pushing aid is shown in the start
menu by the symbol [13].
Fig.3.10
ENGLISH
Pushing aid:
Using the pushing aid:
For add-on bikes:
The pushing aid is used by pressing button [1] for a
pushing aid forwards or button [3] for a pushing aid
backwards.
This turns on the motor and moves your add-on bike at a
maximum speed of 6 km/h (forwards) or 4 km/h
(backwards) for as long as you are holding down the
respective button ([1] or [3]). This is shown in field [13] as
a white bar element.
For add-on bikes:
If buttons [1] or [3] are released, the motor switches off. It
can only cut in again if add-on bike is idle.
If the pedals are moved during pushing, the sMMI
automatically switches to the mode of the pre-set
assistance level (see section 3.2.4) so that the
selection activated for this level is available from a speed
of about 8 km/h.
If the pedals are not moved, the sMMI switches back to
the pushing aid below a speed of 8 km/h.
If the sMMI is switched off, the activated pushing aid is
retained in the program and is immediately ready for use
upon start-up. However, after start-up the drive wheel
must complete 2 to 3 revolutions before the motor moves
the add-on bike when pressing button [1] or [3].
The maximum speed of the pushing aid can be set
according to your requirements by your specialist dealer.
Date and time:
The date and time can also be set individually.
The set time is shown in field [12] of the start menu
whereas the date is only used for internal calculations in
the sMMI.
As already seen in the functions described in previous
sections, you can also set the date and time in the known
way from the start menu in the various sub menus (see
also the overview in section 3). You can modify the
required parameters here.

Travel modes:
The following denote:
There are three travel modes stored in the sMMI –
BOOST, TOUR and ECO.
Current time (needs a pre-setting, see section 3.2.8).
Displays the distance you have covered (needs a “tour
reset”). Navigate using the controller buttons (see
section 2) to the function “tour reset” (start menu – menu
– tour reset; see diagram in section 3). Each time after
activating “tour reset” the display returns to “zero”.
The distance covered by you since first using your addon bike.
In Eco mode the torque and therefore the maximum
available motor power is automatically
reduced by about 40 %, thereby reducing power
consumption. At the same time the agility is also
modified so that the drive responds better. The Eco
travel mode is particularly suited to tours in which the
battery charge needs to last as long a distance as
possible.
In Tour mode, 75 % of the maximum motor torque is
available. Performance and range are
both at a high level. Similarly in this mode the heat
generation in the motor (see section 4 Thermal
management) is moderate so that long, steep inclines
can be accomplished
very well in Tour mode.
In Boost mode the full drive performance is accessed. It
is suited to quick city travel, including moving off
powerfully at traffic lights. The full “Boost performance” is
not available all the time under certain circumstances. In
difficult conditions, for example steep ascents, the drive
power may be reduced because of heat generation (see
section 4 Thermal management). The range in Boost
mode is also less than in the other modes.
To activate the required mode, in the start menu (see
section 3.2.2), press button [2] on the controller to move
to the next sub menu. There, select “menu” and in the
next selection screen that appears, select “travel mode”.
This opens another window in which you can activate the
required mode. Once you have activated the mode, go
back to the start menu by pressing button [2] several
times.
The Eco and Sport travel modes can only be selected
when idle and not when travelling.
Your average speed per trip. The average speed is
calculated from every “tour reset” and is displayed after a
10 minutes of travelling time.
The time in which you travel one more more trips; any
idle time of your add-on bike is not included. The journey
time is calculated from every “tour reset”.
The current power consumption in amperes.

As standard, in field [11], the remaining battery capacity
is displayed. But depending on the travel situation,
information and warnings as shown in the following may
also be displayed in this field.
Battery capacity display (standard display):
The remaining battery capacity is shown in stages by a
decreasing white bar.
Charging process of the battery:
1. The battery charger is plugged in and the battery is
being charged (only for battery models which are
charged via a second charging socket which is why the
power connection to the sMMI from the battery does not
need disconnecting).
2. The battery is being charged by energy fed by the
motor (recuperation, see also section 3.2.5).
Fig.3.13
Warning:
The battery is empty. No power can be taken from the
battery, motorised support for the add-on bike is no
longer available. Please charge the battery as soon as
possible using the supplied battery charger.
Braking assistant active:
During a downhill journey your Attitude brakes
automatically within the pre-set limits (see section 3.2.6).
Service reminder:
The service interval of your Attitude has lapsed. Please
arrange a service appointment with your specialist
dealer. The display can be reset by your dealer using
diagnosis software.
Warning – temperature problem:
For extremely long and steep ascents (primarily in Boost
mode) the drive generates heat, which results in an
automatic reduction in performance from a temperature
from +80 °C inside the motor. As a result of the intelligent
multipoint thermal management monitoring system (see
section 4), the motor will never overheat. The
performance is reduced to such an extent that damage is
excluded. In very rare cases (e.g. heat built-up from
external heat sources) the system may shut down
completely until temperatures return to within the
permissible operating range. When switching off the
display will show the thermometer symbol.
Warning – system fault:
Inside the warning symbol, instead of the exclamation
mark, various letters are shown (for instance the letter
“B” in the accompanying diagram), which mean the
following:
B = battery fault
C = communication fault in the system
M = motor fault
R = controller fault
When a fault occurs, motorised support is not available.
Please contact your specialist dealer.
Warning – general fault:
A fault has occurred in the system, motorised support is
no longer available. Please contact your specialist
dealer.

If Easy Display is activated, the sMMI automatically goes
into this mode every time it is switched on.
Deactivating Easy Display:
To deactivate the mode you need to press button [2] on
the controller for about 2 seconds. Via Menu – Settings –
Easy Display you arrive at the display “on/off”.
NOTE: When Easy Display is activated the functions
“pushing aid” and “recuperation” are not available.
Other settings:
As standard, your sMMI has a German user interface.
However, if required, an English / Dutch / French interface
can be activated. The software status of the sMMI, the
motor and the battery pack can also be retrieved from the
menu item “information”. Language activation or status
requests are performed similarly to the procedures
described in the previous sections via various menus and
sub menus.
USB port: (Fig.3.14)
The sMMI has a USB port [14], which is primarily used by
your specialist dealer to carry out maintenance and
diagnosis work. Ensure that the rubber cover is always
fully inserted and seals the port. If the sMMI is not
fully sealed, moisture can get inside or fog the display
from the inside.
In addition to English we can also set Dutch and French.
However, if required, an English / Dutch / French interface
can be activated.

Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
Your specialist dealer can tailor the travel characteristics of your add-on bike to your requirements using a diagnosis and
programming software. Generally, the factory settings are ideally tailored to the respective model and do not need to be
changed. The factory settings may vary depending on your bicycle model (mountain bike / trekking).
Nevertheless, if adjustments need to be made, the following parameters can be programmed:
Speed of the pushing aid forwards:
Standard assistance level:
sMMI standard settings: sMMI lock: Service interval: Wheel circumference: Set to 4 km/h as default.
The assistance level that is always available when the Attitude is switched on.
Can be set in the range 0–5, the value 3 is pre-programmed as default.
Language settings, time format (12/24 h)
Optionally, the sMMI can be permanently connected to the motor. This results in the sMMI only being operational with this one motor/system and cannot be used with another motor.
Depending on the specified suitable maintenance interval, this can be set or reset by date or kilometres travelled (depending on which comes first).
To correctly display the speed and to comply with statutory requirements with regard to speed limitation, the bicycle dealer can change the wheel circumference. This is only necessary if the drive wheel is subsequently fitted with a tyre which increases or reduces the original wheel circumference, or the motor has been reassigned to a larger or smaller rim.
WARNING!
• This parameter may only be changed if the statutory requirements are complied with (max.25 km/h for add-on bikes)
and in the event of misuse this leads to the warranty and product liability being void.
• Similarly, unlawful tampering can have criminal consequences if investigated by the police.
• All changes to the travel parameters are recorded in the sMMI data storage device.
Firmware updates and relaying them to the motor and battery:
As part of product maintenance and to expand the range of functions, firmware updates are available to download to
specialist dealers from time to time. Your specialist dealer will be happy to advise you.
If you have loaded an update to your sMMI from your specialist dealer, the new firmware will install when you next start
up your add-on-bike.
To do this, proceed as follows:
•• Place the sMMI on its dock [5] as described in section 3.1.
•• The connection to the motor and battery is automatically established and instead of the start menu, a warning
note appears “firmware update is running”. A bar chart also shows the progress of the data transfer.
•• Once the data is fully transferred, the screen display automatically changes to the start menu (see section
3.2.2).
•• Check the settings stored by you in the sMMI if applicable. This may have changed as a result of the update.
CAUTION!
Do not interrupt the update process, for example, by removing the sMMI from its dock This may lead to damage.

Programming options by the specialist dealer:
ENGLISH
Note on the sMMI plugs: (Fig.3.15)
If you need to remove the sMMI plugs leading to the
battery at any time, please note the following information
when connecting them again:
• The plug of the sMMI and the socket on the additional
cable to the battery must be correctly aligned when
connecting.
• Both parts are a little tricky to connect but this
prevents moisture ingress during operation.
• Do not kink the attached cables at any time when
connecting the plug and the socket. There is a risk of
the cable breaking.
Thermal management:
A combination of three temperature sensors, an
intelligent software control system and patented air
circulation ensure the motor is optimally cooled. In
practice this means greater and longer output on climbs
or under high (attachment) loads.
Advantage: protection against premature overheating on
long climbs and high loads – longer support on hills,
higher level of efficiency and thereby a lower battery
consumption as the motor is optimally cooled.
About the theory
As with all drives, gearless wheel hub motors are also
optimised to an operating point consisting of speed, load
and output. Our wheel hub motors are designed for
operation in the speed range between 15 km/h and 25
km/h and a normal drive output of 250 watts. In this
speed and performance range they achieve the greatest
efficiency and range, which means that the supplied
energy is optimally converted into drive energy.
Whenever a motor is operated outside of the optimum
operating point, its level of efficiency decreases. This
leads to the fact that the energy is no longer optimally
converted, rather part of the supplied energy is
converted into heat. The range therefore decreases and
the heat needs to be discharged. In the neodrives
motors this heat discharge is achieved via a large
contact area inside the motor (stator carrier) to the
dropout or chain stays of the bicycle frame. In addition,
cooling ribs inside and outside the drive housing ensure
the greatest possible heat exchange with the
surroundings. Heat which cannot be discharged causes
the drive motor to heat up.
The neodrives wheel hub motors monitor both the
supplied energy and the temperatures in the motor. This
enables damage to be prevented as a result of
overheating in an overload situation. However this also
results in the motor performance that is accessible by
the rider. Being reduced to prevent overheating.
34
Fig.3.15
If a temperature of 80 °C is exceeded in the motor
electronics, the motor control system reduces the input
power and thereby the support. This means that the
higher the temperature increase in the motor, the less
drive output can be accessed and the lower the support
available. When the motor cools down, the energy input
is increased again and the drive output rises. Important:
The motor cannot be damaged by heat build-up. The
temperature symbol (Fig.3.16) only appears when the
power is completely reduced.
Fig.3.16
This regulation of the drive output as a function of the
motor temperature is progressive so that there is always
support but the motor is not damaged by overheating.
In practice
As a result of the points explained above, the day-to-day
practice is dependent on the outside temperature, total
weight, incline, the terrain, cadence, air pressure and
speed. These factors may lead to a temperature being
reached which causes the output or support to be
reduced.
However, this does not mean a fault or failure of the
drive, you can continue to cycle at lower support. In an
extreme case it may cause a brief complete shutdown.
Extreme example: An incline of 10 – 12 % at an altitude
of 500 metres, a total weight of 120 kg, loose terrain, a
maximum assistance level, a speed of < 10 km/h and a
cadence of 60 rpm mean operation in an unfavourable
range at low efficiency and range at simultaneously high
heat generation. This will result in a reduction in the
drive output.
Tip: Ideally, by selecting a lower gear with higher
cadence, the travel mode “Tour” or “Eco”, a reduced
assistance level and/or a short break (in which the drive
can cool down again), you can continue to cycle.
Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
CAUTION!
Fig.3.17
ENGLISH
The motor must never be “forcibly cooled” externally with
water. This can lead to damage and does not help
especially with cooling as it is primarily the inside of the
motor that is hot.
Motor:
The drive wheel of your Attitude can be removed from the
bicycle frame at any time, for example, for cleaning
purposes or in case of a puncture. Proceed extremely
carefully when removing and subsequently installing the
drive wheel and note, in particular, the instructions and
information of the manufacturers of the various
components attached to the wheel, especially the brake
disc.
NOTE: For clarity reasons the following diagrams only
show the drive motor integrated in the wheel but not the
entire drive wheel.
Removing the drive wheel:
Note or mark the cable routing and the fixing points of the
cable ties before removing the drive wheel. First loosen
and remove all cable ties which are securing the cables
[16] coming from the motor and cables and leads of other
components to the bicycle frame. Then disconnect the
plug [15] on the cable of the motor [16] from the socket
[17] on the battery cable. Loosen the two nuts [18] or the
quick-release mechanism with which the wheel is fixed to
the frame so that the entire wheel can be removed from
the frame of your add-on bike.
CAUTION!
• Note or mark the position of the torque support [20].
This must be re-fitted in exactly the same position as it
was before removal, when you later attach the wheel.
• Never hold or transport the wheel you have removed
by the cable, [16] coming from the motor. There is a
risk of the cable breaking.
Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
35
ENGLISH
Attaching the drive wheel:
Make sure that all the components attached to the wheel have
been installed in accordance with the instructions and
specifications of the respective manufacturer. This relates in
particular to the brakes and the gear box. Do not forget to
reinstall the torque support [20] in the same position as it was
taken from.
Then push the wheel into the slot of the frame and tighten it
using the hub axle nuts [18] in the following sequence:
•• first tighten on the side of the gear box (diagram A)
•• then on the side of the brakes (diagram B)
In each case, the tightening torque of the two nuts is between
30 and 40 Nm.
Ensure that the tooth lock washer [19] is located beneath the
axle hub nut otherwise there is the risk of the axle hub nut [18]
coming loose.
Fig.3.18
If your wheels are equipped with a quick-release mechanism,
please observe the manufacturer’s specifications on
installation and the tightening torque.
If the wheel is correctly attached to the frame, the motor with
the end of the cable that leads to the battery can be connected.
In doing so, make sure the plug [15] is correctly aligned with
the socket [17]. The curved surfaces ([A] and [B]) must be
aligned with each other.
Then fasten all cables and leads with cable ties to the bicycle
frame and perform a final function test.
WARNING!
• Make sure the cables are laid correctly. Failure to do so
could lead to the cable getting caught in the brake disc, the
drive or the spokes and by locking the wheel cause a fall.
• Never install the motor without the torque support [20]. This
could cause a total loss (twisting off the cable). This voids all
warranty or guarantee claims.
CAUTION!
• It is essential to observe the instructions and specifications
of the manufacturer of the various components attached to
the wheel in all your installation work. This particularly
applies to the brakes, the gear box and quick-release
mechanism.
• Carry 5 cable ties with you along with your repair tool, to
securely fasten any loose cables during a trip.
• Installing or removing the drive wheel is best carried out
when the add-on bike is upside down (standing on its crank
and connecting frame). Remove the sMMI attached to the
handlebars first so that it does not get damaged.
• Always use the original gear cluster built by the bicycle
manufacturer. Using other makes may lead to restricted
function or to the gear cluster scraping the chainstays

Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
Transportation:
When cleaning the device, never use cleaning benzine,
thinner, acetone or similar agents. Never use abrasive
detergents or aggressive cleaning agents. Instead, use
only conventional household cleaning agents and
disinfectants (isopropyl alcohol).
The following information needs to be noted when
transporting the Attitude by car.
•• Protect all components of your Attitude against
moisture and dirt by suitable means.
•• Remove the battery and the sMMI from the bicycle
before you attach the Attitude to the bicycle rack of your
car. This also reduces the weight that you need to lift,
particularly when using a roof rack system.
•• Always transport the battery and the sMMI inside your
car.
•• Even when transporting inside the car (e.g. in an
estate car), the sMMI and battery should be removed to
avoid damage occurring when loading and during the
journey.
•• If you have a roof carrier system with down tube
clamps ensure that when tightening the clamping device,
the battery mounting slide rail is not crushed/damaged.
•• Ensure that the ends of the cables cannot cause
damage to the Attitude or your car during transportation.
•• After reaching your destination check all the Attitude’s
contacts for possible foreign bodies or moisture. To
ensure reliable function all plug connections in particular
must be free from dirt and foreign bodies and be
completely dry.
•• Never lay your Attitude on the gear box side during
transportation, for example in a car boot. This could be
damaged.
Motor:
•• Your add-on bike motor should be regularly cleaned of
dirt, ideally with a dry brush or a damp (not wet) cloth.
Never clean the motor under running water, for example
a garden hose or even a high-pressure water jet.
However, travelling in the rain and on wet lanes is entirely
possible.
•• Water ingress can destroy the motor. Therefore always
ensure that liquid or moisture does not get into the motor.
•• Do not clean the motor when it is warm, for instance,
immediately after a trip. Wait until it has cooled down.
Otherwise this could cause damage.
•• If the motor is dismantled, for example for cleaning
purposes, it must never be held or transported over the
cables which would run the risk of the cable breaking.
•• If the motor has been removed from the add-on bike
(see section 4.1), the plug from the motor and the socket
of the cable to the battery pack need to be checked for
any contamination or cleaned before connecting.
sMMI Unit:
•• The contacts of the sMMI dock are spring loaded and
from time to time cleaned with a contact spray to ensure
they function perfectly and for a long time.
•• The sMMI housing may only be cleaned using a damp
(not wet) cloth.
Attitude/Attitude Hybrid Rev.1.0
Safety precautions:
•• When not in use, do not expose your add-on bike to
strong sunlight for long periods of time. This could cause
the motor to heat up and in an extreme case, not be able
to operate at full power. Even plastic parts age quicker
under intense sunlight.
•• If increased temperatures (caused for instance by
uninterrupted vehicle operation or downtime as a result
of continuous, direct sunlight), cause system downtime,
leave the motor to cool down for about 10 minutes before
continuing your journey.
•• The maximum speed (non-motorised operation) of the
system is 75 km/h. Exceeding this speed compromises
the electronic components which could be damaged in
the worst-case scenario. The maximum speed is logged
by the system.

WARNING!
• Read and observe the following safety instructions
and precautions before activating the battery and
before starting the charging process.
• Failure to comply with the safety precautions and
instructions may damage the product or result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injuries.
• The lithium-ion battery contains chemical substances,
which may cause hazardous reactions if the safety
instructions specified here are disregarded.
• The manufacturer accepts no liability for damage
resulting from non-compliance with these instructions.
Safety instructions and precautions on the use of
the battery:
•• Before using for the first time, the battery should be
fully charged.
•• The battery must only be used at temperatures
between -20 °C and 60 °C.
•• The battery must not be exposed to heat (e.g.
radiators) or fire. External heat exposure can lead to the
battery exploding.
•• In the (unlikely) event of the battery overheating or
catching on fire, you must ensure that the battery does
not come into contact with water or other liquids. The
only suitable extinguishing agent that is recommended
by the cell manufacturers is sand.

Therefore, if possible, charge the battery after every
use.
•• The battery must only be used to supply energy to the
neodrives components. Any other use requires the
written authorisation of the manufacturer.
•• The battery must not be opened or taken apart.
Improper opening or wilful destruction of the battery
involves the danger of serious injury. In addition,
opening the battery voids any warranty claim.
•• Never connect the battery contacts in the socket [3] to
metallic objects, or ensure that the contacts never come
into contact with metallic objects (for example with metal
filings).
•• If the socket [3] is dirty, clean it with a clean and dry
cloth.
•• Never immerse the battery in water.
•• The useful life of the battery depends, among other
things, on its storage location. Consequently, never
leave the battery (irrespectiveof whether the battery is
installed in or has been removed from the add-on bike)
in hot locations for prolonged periods. In particular, use
the boot of a car parked in the sun only for transport
rather than as a storage location.
•• The battery must not be subjected to mechanical
impact. If, for example, the add-on bike overturns and
the battery thereby hits the ground, the battery must be
checked by the manufacturer. Contact your specialist
dealer in this regard. You must not continue to use a
damaged battery.
•• If damaged or defective, the battery must be singled
out and checked. Please contact your specialist dealer
and discuss with them the next steps with regard to
return and repair. The defective/damaged battery must
not be used again or opened.
•• Always ensure that the battery is kept clean and dry.

Area of application
The Add-on Bike provides the user with the potential to
safely cover long distances in an ergonomically and
ecologically efficient manner, using their own wheelchair.
It expands the activity radius significantly.
In general we recommend the use of a rear wheel
extension or additional weights to improve the traction of
the driving wheel especially when driving uphill. The
attached wheelchair must be equipped in accordance with
road traffic regulations when used on public roads,
pavements and spaces.
The max user weight is 100 kg. The max load for
transported objects (e.g. in bike panniers) is 5kg each.
Please also check the Owner›s Manual of the bike
panniers.
The add-on bike can be operated by people who:
• are physically and mentally capable of safely
operating the device in all operating situations
(steering, braking , pedalling..) and can meet the legal
requirements for use on public roads.
• Have been advised and trained in it´s use by Sunrise
Medical or an authorized Sunrise Medical dealer
Operating Conditions
The ATTITUDE should be able to cope with tarmac
surfaces and firm paths with different topography Avoid
driving on unpaved or loose surfaces (e.g. on loose
gravel, in sand, mud, snow, ice or through deep puddles
of water), as this may expose the user to unforseen risks.

Foreword
ENGLISH
1.0 General safety notes and driving limits
The technology and construction of this add-on bike
have been designed to provide maximum safety.
International safety standards currently in force have
either been fulfilled or exceeded in parts.
Nevertheless, users may put themselves at risk by
improperly using their add-on bikes. For your own safety,
the following rules must be strictly observed.
Unprofessional or erroneous changes or adjustments
increase the risk of accident. As an add-on bike user, you
are also part of the daily traffic on streets and
pavements, just like anyone else. We would like to
remind you that you are therefore also subject to any and
all traffic laws. Be careful during your first ride in this
add-on bike. Get to know your add-on bike.
WARNING!
• NEVER exceed the maximum load of 100 kg for driver
excluding any items carried on the add-on bike.
• If the max user weight of the attached wheelchair is
less than 100 kg, this lower limit will be valid for the
complete system.
• Exceeding the maximum load can lead to damage to
the add-on bike, loss of control, or serious injury to the
user and other people.
• Exercise caution when using the add-on bike. For
example, avoid negotiating obstacles such as, steps,
curbs, path edges or dropping down gaps without
slowing down or braking first.
• Your add-on bike has not been designed for
transportation in a vehicle. DO NOT sit on the add-on
bike during any transportation in a vehicle; always use
a properly secured vehicle seat!!
• This add-on bike should be used exclusively to convey
one person at a time. Any other use does not comply
with the intended purpose.
• Use of the add-on bike is only recommended for those
who have the right physical and psychological
constitution to be able to cope with public traffic.
• Please note that you are subject to any and all traffic
laws when riding in public traffic.
• As a beginner, you should ride particularly carefully at
first.
• Familiarise yourself with the braking distances from
various speeds.
• Familiarise yourself with the general traffic laws!
• In order to achieve a stable ride when travelling
straight ahead, wherever possible, you should avoid
hasty steering movements when travelling at speed or
going round corners.
• A three-wheeled device is always less stable than a
four-wheeled device.
• When you are riding, braking or manoeuvring, always
hold the handlebars firmly with both hands. Failure to
do so could increase the risk of an accident through
steering error.
• The add-on bike is a powered drive unit. The speed
must be adjusted to suit the technical capabilities of
the bike, terrain and operator. The max speed is 6.0
km/h. Never exceed this max speed.
• At night and dawn/dusk, always use the lights.
• When you are travelling long distances, we
recommend that you take a spare battery with you.
• Only ride on asphalt paths, or firm, smooth surfaces.
• Use caution when riding over curbs, steps, potholes,
etc. as there is an increased risk of tipping over.
6
• Adjust your method of driving to your capabilities.
• Ride slowly and carefully, particularly when riding round
corners.
• Do not touch the motor, because it can get very hot
• Your bike should be serviced by your dealer at regular
intervals. (min. every year)
• As with all moving parts, there is a risk that fingers could
become trapped. Please always handle carefully.
• If the add-on bike is subject to direct sunlight / low
temperatures for long periods, parts of your add-on bike
could become very hot (>41°C) or very cold (<0°).
• Always make sure that the quick tensioner on the drive
wheel is set properly.
• The add-on bike should not be used in storm conditions,
heavy rain/snow or on slippery or damaged surfaces.
• You should only use product combinations which have
been approved by Sunrise Medical.

Attitude Power Rev.1.0
CAUTION!
• Check the conditions of your wheels, (including the
wheels of your wheelchair) visually, (spokes and rims,
damages of tyres) as well as the pressure of the
tyres. The correct pressure is indicated on the tyre
and for the add-on bike is normally 3-4 bar.
• Low tyre pressure increases the risk of tipping over
especially in bends, it also effects the braking action,
the wear and tear and the driving performance due to
increased rolling resistance.
• Always check that the tread depth of your tyres is
Okay.
• Check the function of the brakes; the add-on bike may
not be used if the brakes are not 100% functioning!
• Avoid damage to the Bowden cables for the gear-shift
and braking units. There is a risk of kinking the cable
when you transfer to/from the bike.
• Check the fork by visual inspection for damage (e.g.
cracks and breakages)
• Check that all components, especially the bolts, are
tight.
• Check that the handlebars are firmly fixed.
• Check the connection between the add-on bike and
your wheelchair. Clamping must be on the metal tube
without any parts, (e.g. calf strap, frame protectors), in
between.
• Check the frame and the components of your
wheelchair for any damage, (e.g. cracks)
• Check that the lights are functioning and the reflectors
are sound; they must be visible all the time during
use.
• Ensure that your feet cannot slip off the foot plate of
your wheelchair, if necessary use a special fixation
device.
• Check all cables and electrical connections.
• Remember, the max load for the saddle bags is 5 kg
each.
• Check that the battery is locked correctly and fully
charged.
• Switch the battery on and check the light.
• Always wear a helmet.
Safety instructions – while driving
on public roads and footpaths,
• Avoid driving on unpaved or loose surfaces (e.g. on
loose gravel, in sand, mud, snow, ice or through deep
puddles of water).
• Avoid abrupt steering actions
• Avoid driving in parallel to slopes
• Avoid turning on slopes
• On slopes the traction of the driving wheel is lowered
and the braking effect is considerably reduced. The
driving style and speed should be always adjusted so
that the product can be safely stopped at all
• Times without any risk.
• The traction can be improved by using an additional
weight or the rear wheel extension.
• Towing or using a trailer is not permitted.
• Driving on stairs is not permitted.
• Obstacles e.g. curbs must be run over always frontal /
rectangular with very low speed to avoid tipping over
and potential injuries. The max obstacle height is 5 cm,
but this depends on the distance of the stand wheels
and castors to the ground and therefore of the
adjustments of the add-on bike – wheelchair system.
• It must be avoided that any wheelchair components or
parts of your body get trapped when driving over or
passing obstacles. This could result in falls and serious
injuries as well as damage to the
• Add-on bike and the wheelchair.
• When driving on wet surfaces, there is an increase slip
hazard because the traction of the tyres is reduced.
Adapt your driving style accordingly.
• Always use the main brake to slow down your bike. In
case the main brake will fail the parking brake can be
sued as emergency brake once.
• Sliding of the driving wheel during braking can be
avoided by moving your body weight forward.
• Avoid strong braking actions while driving through
bends.
Safety instructions - after your ride:
• Switch off the product immediately when it is not in use
to avoid accidental operation / movements caused by
accidently touching the crank handle.
• Switching off helps to preserve the battery charge.
WARNING!
• Make yourself familiar with the product in flat terrain
before driving up or down slopes.
• Always hold the handlebars with both hands firmly as
otherwise, there is a high risk of an accident through
steering error.
• Always adapt your speed to your driving capability
and to the traffic - / terrain conditions
• Use particular caution when approaching stairs,
edges, drops or other hazard areas.
• Reduce your speed to walking pace and lean your
body inwards, when driving round a bend.
• When waiting e.g. at a pedestrian crossing, a traffic
light, on hills or slopes or at ramps of any type, always
activate the brake.
• Due to the increased turning circle, turning can be
sometimes impossible e.g. in corridors and other
confined spaces.
• Only use the defined brackets to fix objects,
(additional weights, bike panniers)
• When driving on pedestrian areas, observe the
maximum permitted speed (walking speed)
• Always follow the road traffic regulations when driving

ENGLISH
Main brakes (Fig.6.3):
The brakes allow you to safely and comfortably brake
your add-on bike.
Fig.6.1
A
WARNING!
• If the main brakes should fail, then the parking brakes
may be used once for emergency braking.
• The main brakes must be repaired imediately before
next use.
• Hard and sudden application of the brakes may cause
you to fall forward with your upper body, resulting in
possible injury. Therefore always stabilise yourself by
holding onto the handles firmly with both hands.
• Braking power can be severley decrease by any or all
of the following:
1. Worn tyre tread
2. Air pressure which is too low
3. Soiled and wet tyres.
Fig.6.2
• Ensure that the brake pads and brake discs do not
become contaminated with oil and/or grease. If this
happens the brake pads must be replaced. The brake
disc must be professionally degreased with a brake
cleaner.
• Be aware that the condition of the ground surface can
significantly affect braking efficiency.
WARNING!
• The braking effect will be greatly reduced if the surface
is wet, dirty, sandy, stoney, uneven or otherwise
compromised by environmental conditions. It is best to
avoid such conditions, but if this is not possible adapt
your driving style to avoid the risk of potentialy serious
accidents.
• Dirty and wet rims and brake pads also reduce the
braking effect when using rim brakes. For this reason,
you should always adapt your method of riding to the
environmental conditions in order to avoid serious
accidents.
• Always check the efficiency of the brakes before
starting your journey to ensure that they are working
correctly. The brakes should be checked regularly by
your dealer and adjusted if required.

7.0 Maintenance
ENGLISH
8.0 Service Period
11.0 Cleaning/Hygene
Servicing:
• The add-on bike should be cleaned regularly and after
each bigger journey with commercially available,
household cleaning agents.
• If needed only use a little water.
• Handles, display and battery may only be cleaned by
wiping with a damp (not wet) cloth.
• The drive wheel can be cleaned with a soft sponge or
a soft brush.
• The docking pins at the wheelchair and the docking
system can be cleaned with water, a soft sponge or a
soft brush (recommended after each ride).
• After cleaning please use a penetrating oil (e.g.
Ballisto WD 40, Caramba…) to lubricate the moving
parts of the docking.
If you have any questions or require any help, please
contact your authorized Sunrise Medical dealer, who will
be pleased to advise you with regards to servicing and
repairs.
Depending on how much you have used your add-on
bike, we recommend that you take it to your dealer at
least every 6 months, to have your add-on bike inspected
by trained personnel.
9.0 Tyre Maintenance
The add-on bike is equipped with a 16“ drive wheel.
Make sure that they are always at the recommended tyre
pressure, as this will significantly affect the driving
characteristics. If the tyre pressure is too low, movement
and manoeuvrability is made more difficult due to the
increased rolling resistance and this also increases the
amount of effort required.
The optimum tyre pressure (usually 3-4 bar) is indicated
on each tyre.
Fitting and repairing tyres:
Before fitting a new inner tube:
• Inspect the base of the rim and he tyre inner wall for
foreign bodies and if necessary clean thoroughly
• Check the condition of the rim tape, particularly at the
valve hole. Only well fitting, strong rim tape offers longterm protection against inner tube damage through
burrs and sharp spoke heads.
CAUTION!
• Never use steam or high pressure to clean the
product.
• Never use any abrasive cleaning agents or aggressive,
acidic cleaners.
• Make sure that water will not get into contact with the
electrical connectors.
Hygiene when being reused:
When the add-on bike is to be reused, it should be
prepared carefully, and be wiped and treated with spray
disinfectant on all surfaces which could come into contact
with the user. If you need to do this quickly, you must use
a liquid, alcohol based disinfectant suitable for medical
products and devices. Please pay attention to the
manufacturer’s instructions of the disinfectant you are
using.
Inflation:
Before inflation check all round on both sides, to make
sure that the inner tube is not trapped between the tyre
bead and the rim. Push the valve back gently and pull it
back out, so that the inner tube achieves an optimum
position around the valve.
WARNING!
After fitting, check the tyre pressure. It is essential that
you maintain regulation tyre pressure and keep the tyres
in perfect condition, in order to ensure your personal
safety and keep your add-on bike properly.
10.0 Maitenance Brakes
Maintaining the Brakes:
Check regularly the condition of the brake pads and the
brake disc. After 8000- 10.000km the brake cables
should be replaced completely. The brake pads need to
be replaced if the thickness measured at the thinnest
point is 2,5 mm.

5.0 Cleaning
Attaching the drive wheel:
Cleaning the motor:
Make sure that all the components attached to the wheel
have been installed in accordance with the instructions
and specifications of the respective manufacturer. This
relates in particular to the brakes.
When cleaning the device, never use cleaning benzine,
thinner, acetone or similar agents. Never use abrasive
detergents or aggressive cleaning agents. Instead, use
only conventional household cleaning agents and
disinfectants (isopropyl alcohol).
Do not forget to reinstall the torque support in the same
position as it was taken from.
Push the wheel into the slot of the frame and tighten it
using the hub axle nuts [18] in the following sequence:
1. tighten on the side without the brakes.
2. then on the side with the brakes.
NOTE: the torque for the axle nuts needs to be 35 Nm
WARNING!
• If the wheel is correctly attached to the frame, the
motor with the end of the cable that leads to the
battery can be connected. Then fasten all cables and
leads with cable ties to the bicycle frame and perform
a final function test.
• Make sure the cables are laid correctly as failure to do
so could mean the cable getting caught in the brake
disc, the drive or the spokes and by locking the wheel
cause a fall.
• It is essential to observe the instructions and
specifications of the manufacturer of the various
components attached to the wheel in all your
installation work. This particularly applies to the
brakes and quick-release mechanism.
• Never install the motor without the torque support.
This could cause a total loss (twisting off the cable).
This voids all warranty or guarantee claims.
• Carry 5 cable ties with you along with your repair tool,
to securely fasten any loose cables during a trip.
• Installing or removing the drive wheel is best carried
out when the add-on bike is upside down
• (standing on its handlebar and connecting frame).
Make sure the display attached to the handlebars
does not get damaged!). ENGLISH
4.0 Drive Wheel and Motor
Motor:
Your add-on bike motor should be regularly cleaned of
dirt, ideally with a dry brush or a damp cloth. You also can
use running water e.g. from a garden hose. Never clean
the motor with a high-pressure water jet or steam.
However, travelling in the rain and on wet lanes is entirely
possible.
CAUTION!
• Water ingress can destroy the motor. Therefore always
ensure that liquid or moisture does not get into the
motor.
• Do not clean the motor when it is warm, for instance,
immediately after a trip. Wait until it has cooled down.
Otherwise this could cause damage.
• If the motor is dismantled, for example for cleaning
purposes, it must never be held or transported over the
cables which would run the risk of the cable breaking.
• If the motor has been removed from the add-on bike
the plug from the motor and the socket of the cable to
the battery pack need to be checked for any
contamination or cleaned before connecting.
Display:
The housing may only be cleaned using a damp (not wet)
cloth.
6.0 Safety Precautions
Sunlight/direct heat:
When not in use, do not expose your add-on bike to
strong sunlight or intense heat for long periods of time.
This could cause the motor to heat up and in an extreme
case, prevent it from operating at full power. Even plastic
parts age quicker under intense sunlight.

WARNING!
• Read and observe the following safety instructions and
precautions before activating the battery and before
starting the charging process.
• If damaged or defective, the battery must be singled
out and checked. Please contact your specialist dealer
and discuss with them the next steps with regard to
return and repair. The defective/damaged battery must
not be used again or opened.
• Always ensure that the battery is kept clean and dry.
Safety instructions and precautions on how to store
the battery:
DANGER!
• Failure to comply with the safety precautions and
instructions may damage the product or result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injuries.
• The lithium-ion battery contains chemical substances,
which may cause hazardous reactions if the safety
instructions specified here are disregarded.
CAUTION!
• The manufacturer accepts no liability for damage
resulting from non-compliance with these instructions.
Safety instructions and precautions on the use of the
battery:
WARNING!
• Before using for the first time, the battery should be
fully charged.
• The battery must only be used at temperatures
between -20 °C and 60 °C.
• The battery must not be exposed to heat (e.g.
radiators) or fire. External heat exposure can lead to
the battery exploding.
• In the (unlikely) event of the battery overheating or
catching on fire, you must ensure that the battery does
not come into contact with water or other liquids. The
only suitable extinguishing agent that is recommended
by the cell manufacturers is sand.
• Your add-on bike uses power in all operating modes.
Therefore, if possible, charge the battery after every
use.
• The battery must only be used to supply energy to the
Ansmann components. Any other use requires the
written authorisation of the manufacturer.
• The battery must not be opened or taken apart.
Improper opening or wilful destruction of the battery
involves the danger of serious injury. In addition,
opening the battery voids any warranty claim.
• Never connect the battery contacts in the socket [3] to
metallic objects, or ensure that the contacts never
come into contact with metallic objects (for example
with metal filings).
• If the socket [3] is dirty, clean it with a clean and dry
cloth.
• Never immerse the battery in water.
• The useful life of the battery depends, among other
things, on its storage location. Consequently, never
leave the battery (irrespective of whether the battery is
installed in or has been removed from the add-on bike)
in hot locations for prolonged periods. In particular, use
the boot of a car parked in the sun only for transport
rather than as a storage location.
• The battery must not be subjected to mechanical
impact. If, for example, the add-on bike overturns and
the battery thereby hits the ground, the battery must be
checked by the manufacturer. Contact your specialist
dealer in this regard. You must not continue to use a
damaged battery.
Attitude Power Rev.1.0
