The Hase Bikes KLIMAX tricycle is a revolutionary vehicle that provides riders with the opportunity to protect themselves from inclement weather with ease.

Most tricycles or velomobiles (a human-powered bicycle or car that uses a hard shell for aerodynamic benefit and weather protection) use a hard shell to protect the rider from wind or rain, but the weight of the hard shell traps heat inside the vehicle. Additionally, because of the materials used to develop the shell, it raises the price of the vehicles tremendously.

The Hase Bikes KLIMAX tricycle offers an alternative by eschewing a hard shell in favor of an easily removable, weatherproof fabric fairing.

The Hase Bikes KLIMAX tricycle is currently still in the prototype phase, but it is expected to be released in the Spring of 2012. The expected retail price is $10,517 USD.
