VT Ride

Beach rider

Student project

With a ride on a beach as start point, we realize there is no perfect vehicle to do such a thing. By car you are isolated from the environment, by bike you can’t sit back and chill, and walking you won’t go far enough.

The VT Ride was then designed to be that vehicle. Its low height and inclination system transfer all the road experiences to the users, while its 3 wheels bring safety and stability to sit back and drive. The lack of bodywork lets the user feel the environment, and its 2 sits let the fun to be shared.

An electric engine is also considered, for driver assistance and relaxation purposes.
