The vehicle

* AZUB Six recumbent bicycle. Reason: A recumbent bicycle is very comfortable and lets you enjoy the scenery instead of the tarmac

* Schlumpf speed drive front gearing enabling intant gear shifting by a ratio of 1:2.5.
Reason : being able to shift gear instantly enables me to maintain speed instead of swaying over the road in that wrong gear. So increased safety.

* Gearless hub motor in the rear wheel. 500 W, Brand: MXUS XF39 XF40. The motor has a large diameter for higher torque performance

* Lithium battery pack : 36V / 35 Ah, which equals about 1.2 kWh of energy


* 3 semi flexible solar panels (100Wpeak each) mounted on aluminium frame

* 3 channel MPPT converter (by own design)

* Burley Coho XC trailer converted into a solar panel carrier

* recumbent bicycle side panniers L+R by Ortlieb
