Yet another EcoGeek 3 wheel wonder, the Aerorider is â€œthe ultimate single seat hybrid: sensational, comfortable, sporty and relaxingâ€.
The Aerorider is a hybrid - human and electric powered vehicle that can achieve 45km/h (28 mph) cruise and the ability to overcome hills without breaking into a sweat. The single bucket seat supports your entire body placing you in a position to comfortably focus on pedaling. Pedaling efficiency is maximized by the â€œrecumbentâ€ position where you are seated with the pedals out in front.
In the United States the Aerorider is considered a bicycle and can go wherever a bike is permitted.
Battery range, usually the Achilles Heel in an electric vehicle, depends on how the Aerorider is used and on the terrain. The more you pedal the greater the range, slopes and frequent acceleration reduce it, so range varies between twenty and eighty kilometers. Various battery options allow the Aerorider to be tailored for your needs. The battery charger can be plugged into a standard household outlet. The more advanced batteries, which are lighter and smaller, can be removed from the vehicle.
The Aerorider is currently under development in Amsterdam.
