Challenger velomobile is a pretty known project which was assembled on ICE trikes some time ago. The builder was not able to produce it anymore as he has enough of other work so he has sold the complete project to Luc Smets and his company Eurocircuits. Luc is a customer of us and long time TRIcon rider and so he decided to adjust the shell for our trike. And here we are. First video of a Challenger with a TRIcon as a base frame.
What we like on the design is that they have a wiper which is so needed with head-in style velomobiles. The other thing is that Luc and his colleagues did some changes and you can ride without part of the closure which will be great in hot sunny days.
Price is not set yet. We should deliver first ten trikes at the beginning of July and based on their experience with assembling of those first units, they will set the price.
Another point is that the assembly will be done in Hungary, That means that another velomobile assembly moved to Eastern or let`s say Middle Europe which starts to be a velomobile nest now. Velomobiel.nl has production in Romania, many shells are manufactured in Slovakia, WAW is produced in Czech and Challenger in Hungary now. Veeery interesting 🙂
