Velocite - Recumbent Trike
The idea behind developing Velocite - Recumbent trike – assembled almost entirely from waste was to make a cycling a more attractive, cheaper and easier mode of transportation that promotes green cause.
The concept idea behind the project was to work on recumbent trikes which are integral part of a human being since childhood to the time when one gets old. Although such trikes are already available abroad, we wanted to develop a trike which is cheaper and made using sustainable method.
