In its development we seek the optimization of the weight / tensile strength ratio. A heavy chassis would require a lot of effort to accelerate it and to slow it down. As a result we obtain a chassis formed by aerospace aluminium tubes cut in laser machines and curved tubes in automatic bending machines. The set reaches a resistance that would withstand an impact of 5 tons in any part of the chassis (front, side, rear or roll bar).
By creating a safety cell around the cyclist implies a greater weight of the Bicycle in front of a normal bicycle and a level of security closer to that of a car. The traction system is hybrid, using the cyclist’s energy (human energy) and the assistance of an electric motor (electric power) that helps accelerate the vehicle between 0 km / h and 25 km / h. This help means that overcoming a hill or slope does not require great effort.
The body of the vehicle is designed to be attractive to the eye, to be aerodynamic, to protect the cyclist from inclement weather and to generate a zone of absorption of energy in case of impact. The bodywork is mainly made of carbon fiber / epoxy that gives it great lightness and mechanical resistance. Some areas of the body must use fiberglass instead of carbon fiber to allow the passage of electromagnetic waves from the navigation system.
From a technical point of view, the bicycle is conceived as a mini racing car. It has a tubular chassis that gives rigidity to the whole vehicle and the suspension scheme. The independent four-wheel suspension gives it an enviable stability and allows a fast turnaround. It has 4 brake discs that are activated by two brake levers: One to brake the front wheels and the other to brake the rear wheels. The traction system is formed by a bottom bracket with an electric assistance motor, together with an automatic gear change of continuous speed variation, together with a differential that distributes the force to the two rear wheels. In future versions, a 4-wheel drive system is being considered to improve traction on sliding surfaces such as in wet or snowy terrain.
Computer on board
It is proposed to present in option the use of an on-board computer with a 7-inch touch screen that allows to have the information of the trip as partial or total, speed, average speed, maximum speed, pulsations, average pulsations, maximum pulsations, equipment multimedia, GPS navigation system, personal trainer, vehicle tracking system, etc.
