Here some more impressions of how the new bike is built up. Next steps for march: smoothing surface painting possitive mold
Hans is working on building up a completly new bike. Luckely he could convince Calvin Moes to design a new bike for us. Here you see the result of a lot of simulations Calvin has done for us. Clearly you can see the similarity to Eta. This bike is a bit smaler and should have even better aerodynamics.
New World Champion in Fullyfaired Category! July 2019 Nandax France, in a really close fight with his pponent Richard Schaffenroth Matthias could win the WC-Titel in the category of the fullyfaired recumbents. The competition consist of four races: an uphill race (5km with average 5% slope) two sprint races 200m and 1000m and a 3h […]
Three of our Team participated at “a race in the park” the second biggest recumbent event in europe. Ellen and Matthias cycled in a velomobile (a fullyfaired three wheeler). Both of them won in their category the overall ranking. Ralf riding a partlyfaired recumbent ranked forth in the overall ranking. Besides our very succesful racing […]
We toke the opportunity to present our bikes at Cyclingworld in Düsseldorf. Thanks to HPV Germany, who sponsored the stand at the fair. Together with velomobiles of the manufacture Räderwerk and the “Bentlage Brothers” advertising for “a race in the park” we presented the whole range of high class recumbent racing. Additionally we toke the chance to […]
Nijmegen, Ellen and Matthias did another performance test at the Han Seneca Institute supervised by Vincent Bastiaans. This time their maximum output power were tested. The so called Windgate test consists of a 4 min warm up at 100 W and a 30 sec all out section. As you can see on the picture it is no fun […]
Pushing the speed for human powered vehicles to its limits also means pushing your own performance to your limit. Therefore Ellen and Matthias visited the Staps Institute in Collogne testing their current fitness. The test consists of a 15 sec sprint and a 15 min ramp test. Like this the laktat formation rate and the maximum oxigen uptake is […]
Hans just finished a new fairing for the our next bike. It will have a camera system therefore we need no window in the front. Beside this there are also bigger wheels in the bike. It is obvious that 26 inch wheels is the maximum size, which fits in. Once the faring is ready we will compare the “window bike” with the “camera bike” […]
