This Is What The World’s Fastest Bicycle Looks Like [Pics]
Pill-shaped design could break the pedal-powered speed record.
Students from Liverpool University in the U.K. are looking to break the world’s pedal-powered speed record of 90 mph, with a bicycle that looks nothing like a bicycle. The ARION1 is encased in carbon-fibre, and requires the rider to navigate using a camera and on-board monitor.
Sitting just a few centimeters off the ground, the students claim the bicycle is 40 times more aerodynamic than a Bugatti Veyron supercar. “The project is no simple undertaking but, at this stage, just six months in, we are in a great position,” said Ben Hogan, one of the inventors.
