Battle Mountain, 17 September 2016: The Aerovelo team has set a new world record! 144km/h!
The Canadian rider Tod Reichert has thus improved the previous world record of his team once again. Even though Tod is very well trained, the vehicle itself was decisive in the end. It weighs about 25kg, is aerodynamically optimised and therefore highly efficient. The driver is fully integrated in the teardrop-shaped Streamliner. There are no windows. The driver can only see through a display inside and 2 outside cameras.
Every year, inventors meet in the state of Nevada to demonstrate the efficiency of their vehicles on Highway 305.
