Alleweder A6



The Allweder A6 takes the classic aluminum velomobile and makes it into a fiber reinforced resin piece of art. Standard equipment will include a head rest, roll bar, dual front mirrors and an Inoled front light with a rechargeable Sigma battery. Available in red, yellow or white as standard, other colors are optional and the velo only need a few pieces glued together with laminating adhesives.  Here is the price list for the A6, taken right from their website.

 Front light (optinonal)Uses four very efficient white LED's. Thanks to clever electronics it runs 72 hours (400 in blinking mode) on just 3 AAA penlights.
With blinking mode for visibility. Gives sufficient light for an occasional ride in the dark. If you ride in the dark a lot, or under
difficult circumstances we advise to use 2 of these units, or to buy a heavier alternative.
 MiscellaneousOne rear view mirror (second one is optional).
A powerful bell (you will need it!).
 Maximum body sizes      Maximum height is 195 cm and the maximum weight is 95 kg. Very broad shoulders restrict the maximum lenght as that means
that the seat can not be put in the backmost positions. (the cockpit opening gets narrower towards the back. When foreseen during
the building process, it is possible to make the opening a bit wider, so the seat can be moved back a bit further without the
shoulders getting in the way.)
