Designer Ivan Vela's vehicle is a lightweight racing trike which has been inspired from feathers. The electric racing trike uses human energy to offer a safe and sustainable ride.

Specially designed for a TOUR Competition, the vehicle accommodates only a single person. It features carving-type steering and a big sprocket with a diameter of 40 cm to deliver a high torque at speeds above 70 km.

Implications - Along with the environmental movement, all companies are becoming increasingly public about their green initiatives. Eco-conscious consumers demand that products maintain their sleek designs and amazing features, but they now insist they function in an environmentally friendly way.
