Trisled velomobiles


O.K. without a doubt my favorite manufacturer is our Australian friends at Trisled. They have 4 racing velomobiles and 2 road going velomobiles to choose from. They also have 2 more regular, tadpole, recumbent trikes. They can be located at    http://www.trisled.com.au/index.asp.

On The Road




The most interesting road going is the Rotovelo. Seen here the Rotovelo is made using a roto-molded fairing, making it probably the most durable velomobile on the market. The molded design can also be lit from within and the light will show through the body making the entire fairing glow from within. It is listed at 5990 dollars Australian.



The velomobile to the left and at the top of the page is called the Avatar. This has the benefit of super streamlining in the design.  It should be the fastest of any road going velomobile, but it is hard to tell without actually being in one. This one lists for just under 15,000 dollars Australian.





On The Track



Formula Trisled
This one is the Formula Trisled. It starts at AU $3700 and goes up to AU $4200 including the fairing shown here.  This is the racing version of the Trisled velomobiles. They also list a fastback design, but do not show the fairing as seen below.


FastBack


FB10The one you see to your right is simply called FB10. This is on of the fastest seen racing in the Australian International Pedal Prix, which we will go into in later posts. It start at AU $6700. This is one of my favorite designs. But it is not my absolute favorite. For that  I will have to introduce you to.......



AquilaAquila. This is without a doubt my favorite designed velomobile of all time. To see why see the video at the bottom of this page. This design has vents for cooling, an opaque roof for shade and a fully enclosed cabin space. In the AIPP it is also without  a doubt the fastest velo on the track. It lists for AU $ 8500. Although this beautiful design was intended for racing, I see  no reason it couldn't be used on the street. Just add lights mirrors, and go!
