World Speed Record

133,78 km/h

Human Vehicle Interaction

 

To achieve velocities over 120 km/h the VeloX and the athlete must be perfectly adjusted to each other . Therefore it is crucial to bring the knowledge of the students of both disciplines together in this project.

Every year, teams from all over the world gather in Battle Mountain - Nevada, United States - for the World Human Powered Speed Challenge. This is the Formula 1 race of the cycling world. Each team is able to try to break the world speed record several times during this event. The sprint speed is measured over 200 meters after an 8 kilometers long, straight and flat road.
