Title: Borealis velomobile in action
Post by: RichForrest on July 06, 2008, 01:09:39 am
YouTube - ICE Trice recumbent trike QNT vs QNT / Borealis velomobile (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE3KLphD73c)


Quote from youtube page
"Little bit of footage from me out with another Trice rider with Borealis fairing. I could stay with him going uphill but on the level and downhill I didn't stand a chance. Look out for the bit towards the end where he overtakes me on a slight downhill, this is not speeded up.
Sorry for the shaky camera work, and yes I know he should have been wearing a helmet."


Looks like great fun and wish I could afford one, it's a shame the 'S' I have will not fit in the shell :(

What can one say, but "Phwoarrrr!" ?

Makes all those oversize 4-wheeled tin boxes with smelly tubes coming out of the back of them look ridiculous  ;D

Anybody else sat there trying to work out where the video was?   :-[



I'm sure at the end they pull into the car park at the point in Falmouth (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=falmouth&sll=51.534985,0.71855&sspn=0.150559,0.300751&ie=UTF8&ll=50.145426,-5.045804&spn=0.004847,0.009398&z=17) ... at which opint I realised that ICE are based down that way :-[ :-[ :-[
