Traditional bicycles have been available for over a hundred years but lack weather protection and high-speed capability and offer zero crash protection. Electric assisted bicycles, or pedelecs, remove the burden from pedaling up steep hills or in a strong headwind. But they do not remedy the problem of lack of weather protection, nor do they offer any crash protection.
Streamlined velomobiles, cycles with a streamlined body, are much faster, have at least some weather and crash protection but lack the ‘creature comfort’ modern car offers.
The PODBIKE® is a new electric-assisted velomobile constructed within a sustainable envelope
