Created from carbon fiber and aluminium this stylish Velorian trike was designed to make it transport easier and for space saving. Its creator designer from Lithuania Mantas Palaima assures that this big and comfortable trike can be folded down to 1210 x 530 x 755 mm within a few seconds. This trike is highly stable thanks to the fact that rear wheels have 10 degrees of camber. “Because of split handlebar and track rods this recumbent steering became simple even for beginners. The seat designed to smooth out or damp shock impulse.” So don’t stop and check this elegant and interesting trike out.

    On visiting the designer’s site [http://www.behance.net/gallery/Velorian-a-folding-recumbent-trike-/585292] it becomes quite apparent that he’s not done much cycling, and none on a recumbent trike. Maybe saw a few on the web.

    He has “an idea” for folding of a trike-like structure, so he “develops” it “further.” He thinks that back wheel steering is “simple even for beginners,” doesn’t know that so far no serious trike experimenter has succeeded in making it work [and there are quite a few of those attempts described in depth in the “Human Power,” Technical Journal of the IHPVA [http://ihpva.org/HParchive/Kyle.htm]. Nor that a front wheel drive can not easily be hidden inside a hollow frame.

    THIS IS A PAPER PROJECT whose sole redeeming qualities are

    (1) the integral luggage-rack-becomes-rolling-bag when “trike” folded up; and

    (2) its apparent sex-appeal for design news-blog editors to use it as page filler. Nice modelmaking (scaled to fit inside another model) though.
