David Stone, a British Paralympic cyclist who has won three gold medals, is set to call upon the services of an extraordinarily high-tech racing trike to help him add to his medal collection at the Rio Paralympic games.

Developed by Nissan as part of a collaboration with the English Institute of Sport, this particular trike is equipped with a titanium frame that is exceptionally lightweight and aerodynamic. The trike is fitted with the same kind of titanium that is used in the Nissan GT-R Nismo's exhaust mechanism. This titanium allows for massive weight savings as well as increased power.

The generous use of high-grade titanium makes this racing trike a competitive weapon that will help David Stone and other British cyclists at the Paralympics.
