We are proud to present K/F Handicap Fashion as a Gold Sponsor of HSR enhanced.
It all starts with underpants! Design, wearing comfort and functionality stand side by side.
A new clothing label is the result of the need to develop clothes that enable highly paralyzed people to catheterize. Florian Hauser, managing director of K/F Handicap Fashion, was faced with the decision after his traffic accident either to get a permanent catheter or to make clothes that allow him to empty his bladder on his own.
On 21 June 2014, his life changes abruptly. Although he is still working as a construction foreman, in his new life as a tetraplegic he is above all interested in achieving as much independence as possible. He wants to share this possibility with other people. In order to develop and produce missing aids, Florian Hauser founded K/F Handicap Fashion.
CYBATHLON Team HSR enhanced is eternally grateful to its pilot Florian Hauser for his unrestrained will, the countless productive and beautiful hours, his precise feedback and the unforgettable moments of success we have already experienced together. We are looking forward to the future with K/F Handicap Fashion as Gold Sponsor, and we are still hungry for success! Thank you very much!

Pilot Florian Hauser has won the CYBATHLON Wheelchair Series 2019 Japan with his team HSR enhanced!
After two careful qualifying heats securing the final, Florian went full speed, full risk to win the title with a perfect point score: he won the race against our Russian competitors and friends 'Team Caterwil' with 660 to 559 points, making the time category irrelevant.
Unbelievably happy, Team HSR enhanced salutes you from Japan and says 'Thank you!' for all the cheers, support and happy wishes!
Special thanks go to all of our sponsors and patrons, who made Mission Kawasaki possible with their generous financial support.
