At Spezi, Oceancycle presented a prototype velomobile. Based on the Ice Qnt trike a fully closed velomobile has been designed. The looks are great!

The site recumbenblog found the same photo's, but your editors made the photo's from this article.

We know the Borealis already for some years, but the Challenger is a new development from Britain. Unfortunately, the advertised website is not (yet) in the air.

The people from Ice are familiar with the designer and builder of this body, apparently he also designed the trike seats.

According to the builder, the body now available for the Qnt should also fit the new model Sprint. A slightly wider wheelbase is the news of 2010.

The design of the trike allows the wheel boxes to get completely closed. Above seat steering makes that possible.

Of course there is a movie by Ice on youtube, filmed from within the new Challenger.

En aangezien de basis een Trice is: het achterwiel is dubbelzijdig opgehangen.
