Wind Explorers

14 02 2011

This is really, really cool. Two German Wind Explorers have crossed Australia from Perth to Sydney in what looks very much like a velomobile built for two, but it’s without pedals, and is powered by electric motors. They recharge the batteries with a wind turbine that stows between their seats. Then it is also kite assisted. I love it – Recumbent trikes, sail power and electric motors together again. Well done to Dirk and Stefan, who are dead set legends. Magnificent!
