TeamBike

It is a nine-seated recumbent tandembike. It is especially suited for team-building trips. People can talk during biking, and they can share their muscle power and endurance.

It is a nine-seated recumbent tandembike. It is especially suited for team-building trips. People can talk during biking, and they can share their muscle power and endurance.



It has two wheels so the bike is turning like a regular bike, so it is tilting in the corners, thus it gives a more active feel. Because of the recumbent siting position even the outer pedals do not reach the surface of the road.



The bike can be balanced for every number of persons between one and nine. The recumbent seats are more comfortable even for less trained people especially for longer distances, and makes the trip a joy instead of pains.



The frame is made of carbon, which is strong, lightweight and suitable of making organic forms. The drivetrain is electronic, each pedal axis drives a generator and both wheels contain an electromor which moves the bike. Li-ion batteries are placed inside the frame. Because of the electronic drivetrain system the startup is easier since batteries could give an extra torque for this critical moments. During breaking the electro-motors act as generators so they start recharging the batteries.



On the business side, these bikes are targeted for bigger families, communities, clubs, companies for their team-bulding programmes. With two or more bikes races can be made. It is not necessary to buy these bikes for this groups, since they are also well suited for bike-rental companies, from whom the groups can rent this bikes. It can be a great business to loan them for a few hours, or a day or even more days for longer trips since it is a low maintance, no-fuel vehicle.



The users can enjoy the feeling of riding, talking, singing and having fun together in the open air. As an attraction in the streets, they also promote human powered vehicles and show a sustainable way of training, traveling and socializing together.
