What is the Rotovelo?

The Rotovelo is human powered vehicle. It’s designed around a recumbent tricycle frame and provides a great level of stability. Inside, it uses standard bicycle components, so is very easy to service and maintain.

Easier than walking, more comfortable than cycling

The frame of a velomobile puts the rider into a position similar to a recumbent bicycle, which makes it more supportive and comfortable, especially over long distances.  

It comes with 80 litres of luggage space with a roto-molded luggage compartment either side and overtop of the rear wheel. This means you no longer have to get sweaty with a backpack, and you can say goodbye to panniers!  

The volomobile is also more energy efficient than a normal bike. Trisled, the maker of the Rotovelo, has taken it’s engineering expertise from making velomobiles that break speed records and brought it into the design. You can expect an instant 20-30% performance improvement compared to your average bicycle ride.

The comfort, efficiency and generous luggage space makes Rotovelo the perfect option for commuting and touring.

Sturdy shell design

The Rotovelo made from HDPE, a durable type of plastic, which makes it light and great for commuting. This colourful rotomolded shell and enclosed design will also improve your safety out in traffic. It also means that if your Rotovelo is locked to a bike stand, there’s no paint to be worried about getting scratched.

Rain proof design

The enclosed design of the Rotovelo gives it built-in rain proof qualities. This makes it a great choice for Ireland’s unpredictable weather.

All Velocycle Rotovelo’s come with a standard protective cover to keep the riders shoulders covered, while their head remains out. With the optional rain hood, you get full coverage from the elements and an improved aerodynamic profile.

How much does it cost?

The Rotovelo base model costs €5,900 (including all taxes).
