Velomobiles vs bicycles: facts and figures.

Going back to a few months ago and the posts about my now sold Rotovelo velomobile…

I am adding today a slide with a comprehensive velomobiles model list – thanks to http://www.cykelvalg.dk, their main specification and performance vs regular bicycles. So here is the recap:

velomobile

Although the performance of a human powered vehicule depends greatly upon training, fitness, the added value of the complete fairing vs the extra weight of this feature is demonstrated here (with low uphill and downhill levels though). You can expect these numbers to increase greatly depending on the climb and downhill levels. I am still owner of a recumbent bicycle and a Catrike Speed trike / tricycle and believe, especially for the trike, that it is probably the best human powered vehicule I ever owned.
