The Victorian Futurist's Electric Cycle

This is the electric tricycle made in England that evokes the spaceflight-inspired fantasy of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne with a rocket-shaped nosecone that forms its passenger section. Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer and powered by a 36-volt rechargeable battery, the tricycle’s 500-watt electric motor provides assisted pedaling in addition to a seven-speed dérailleur for purely human-powered operation. Built with a lightweight aluminum girder chassis frame that supports up to 540 lbs., the tricycle ensconces passengers—either four children or one adult—in the front compartment’s two Italian leather-upholstered reclining, removable, and safety harness-equipped bench seats. The interior of the forward nose cone stores a day’s picnic or helmets—terrestrial or astronautical. Made with the finest components, the tricycle accommodates a pedaler comfortably with a Brooks leather spring saddle, rolls smoothly on Schwalbe Kevlar-reinforced tires, and stops confidently with Tektro front and rear hydraulic disc brakes. Handlebars provide button controls for the throttle, horn, hi/low-beam headlight, and turn indicators while an LCD indicates speed, distance travelled, gear, and current battery level. Its rechargeable battery provides from a 20- to 50-mile range from an overnight charge using the included AC adapter, dependent upon usage. 98" L x 48" W x 36" H. (132 lbs.)
