The Adler is the next step from the Ego prototype. What is the difference? The Adler will have a door, just like a car. It will be a fully enclosed velomobile. The Adler will have a different structure and a different motor than the Ego. The Adler is what is called a mule, a testing vehicle to refine the final product.
In this section we’ll post the updates in the development of the Adler and target dates for production.
A new frame has been developed (It’s not the final one, there are modifications to be made for the production one). A 750 watts motor is in place with a bigger battery package. We like how it rides, but we’ll add also suspension in the front. 10/03/16
Back to the drawing board: The Adler being prepared to get a door and resized side windows. 11/03/16
Update 2017 working on door, resized front, and adjustments to general dimensions
The plug for the future mold of the Adler is taking form (July, 2017).
Plug progress: The Ego was sculptured without a mold. Before even starting to make a mold a plug needs to be made. Primer, first step, then plug needs a door to be cut out and a long process of detail working. (Dec 6, 2017).
A door has been cut out from the plug. More work on the shape… this is a longer process that I would ever imagine! But the care of detail is worth the wait! (2/25/2018)
