Development

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. 10/03/162016-09-22-007

Update 2017 working on door, resized front, and adjustments to general dimensions

Update Adler 2017

The plug for the future mold of the Adler is taking form (July, 2017).

Update Adler 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).

Update plug 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)
