Randall words about Triclo:

Triclo is a conceptual design of what a tricycle can be in a urban environment. It uses an organic forms and contemporary trend. Balance in visual volume and mass. Using arrays and knots was the basis for the formal development and geometric design.

The concept was: low material vs. high volume

The design is targeted for a younger market but can be used by adults too. The idea was to create a tricycle with a diferent look to capture the attention of people and thus encourage exercise. At the same time the concept of design is important to not use much material in the product and reduce costs.

A tricycle is more than a bicycle but less than a motorbike, but this tricycle has almost a cab, this protects of the sun and rain to the user. Therefore, that is its advantage over a motorcycle that somehow is to approach a car. Maybe this way, providing superior comfort offered by a bicycle or even a conventional tricycle, is a way for people interested in using the product and increasing exercise in the population. The design is targeted for a younger market but can be used by adults too.

The materials were designed to be recycled once they finish their service life. There are variety of colors to suit all tastes.

Dimensions:
1800 x 1500 x 1100 mm.

Maximum capacity:
180 Kg.

i think this would work better, for country or farms. too big and too bulky, try to redefine the purpose a little. wouldn’t it be hard to pedal this huge thing? the reason im saying this is because the person inside looks small (is it a kid?) if so it would be twice as hard for child to pedal it.

other then that good job

A very good idea. I think it would work fine in it’s intended purpose, maybe make it a tad smaller. Very innovative.

I see a number of significant problems with the Triclo.

0. With four wheels, it’s not a tricylcle

1. It’s not urban if you can’t get it up the stairs to your apartment

2. It’s not urban if you can’t lock it up on a bike rack.

3. Not enough suspension to overcome potholes.

4. It’s wider than standard bike lanes

5. It will act as a drogue chute in a head wind

6. The real wheels’ bering surface is way too large (high coefficient of friction); the front tires are far too massive. It’s going to take a whopping amount of torque to impart any angular momentum to those (4) wheels. The point being that in urban environments, the ability to accelerate quickly is as important in getting out of trouble as is braking.

7. No apparent adjustment for different size riders.

8. Where are the brakes?! How do you control the Triclo on a downhill?

9. How do you get the road grit out of the rear wheel berings?

Other than that. It IS pretty.

Thanks.
