Green Eco Trike
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another
We pioneered a new category of Stepper Tricycles – a practical city and leisure vehicle with Zero emission.The GET (Green Eco Trike) is a wellness machine and a city hybrid vehicle in one.
When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?
We started in May of 2009 and build the alfa-machine in September 2009. Then we went back to the drawing boards and developed and produced more prototypes. We just finished the beta model and are going to begin the production.
What was your goal in building this project?
Green Eco Trike (the GET) was conceived with the idea in mind to introduce a compact and environmentally friendly personal transportation vehicle and a fitness machine in one.
Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?
We offer in one package a weight loss equipment and a green mode of transportation.
What makes your idea unique?
The GET is a street legal, steady, light, foldable model. Top speed is up to 20MPH.
Rider stepping in the upright position. The rider’s full body weight and vertical legs movement generate driving force. You can seamlessly switch from the motor power to pedals and back. The best way to describe my experience on the GET - it’s a horizontal flight!
In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?
We using 33 bearings in this project. 9 of them are needle bearings, two special bearings in the head set, the rest of them are ball bearings.
What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?
Lose Weight, Boost Health and Get Fit with our trike.
How will you use the $5,000 prize?
We will buy a lot of bearings from your company. Just kidding, the prize will be used for the design of trike for kids.
