The Rotavelo by Trisled
The Rotavelo is an electric-assisted, recumbent tricycle, i.e. powered by pedals and electric motor. It covers up to 30 miles on the battery alone, and costs just 15p per 100km worth of electric charge.
We import Rotavelos from Trisled in Australia. We love the robust, aerodynamic, practical design. It's our “Sport” alternative to our CitiPod commuter vehicle.
Bad weather means bicycles don't hack it for commuters. This next-generation urban transport solution is weatherproof. Just fit the canopy, then you are warm and dry, protected from wind and rain.
What's more, you're surrounded by a “safety cell” . You gain protection from injuries typically suffered by cyclists.
