VELOX 2

history

velox 2

The road to the world record was continued by the VeloX 2. The second team designed and built a completely new VeloX with lots of innovations.

This is the first VeloX with a StuD-drive, which means that the cycling motion is elliptical instead of the usual circular shape. This made room for a sharper nose of the VeloX, which improved the aerodynamics. The window was also completely removed. The VeloX 1 showed that the connection between the shell and the window increased the turbulent airflow around the VeloX. Additionally, the vision through the often foggy window was poor. Instead, the cyclist solely depends on a camera-monitor system with live stream to gain vision. Finally, this is the first VeloX with a monocoque structure. This means it consists of one continuous shell. The only holes in the structure are for air-intake, the wheels and a hole at the top for the cyclist to get in and out. With this design, the Human Power Team won the WHPSC for the second time!
