Velomobiles tend to attract a lot of attention. They have been around for quite some time and are quite popular among many for their unique silhouette and eco-friendly quality. The BeWAW by Fietser is an offspring of the famous WAW Velomobile. This ultralight vehicle for personal mobility is propelled by its load, the rider or a combination of human and electric power. A light lithium ion battery is concealed neatly under the seat. It features a nice carbon top and broad advertising space. They have opted for velomobiel.nl McPherson struts with drum brakes. A removable carbon fiber and polycarbonate canopy protects the rider from the elements. The new canopy is an upshot of the Bries and WAW. By means of a flexible yet sturdy mechanism, the position of the visor and cap unit can be adapted to the changing circumstances. Moving the cap forward or backward and lifting the front and/or the back or even one side only, directs the air flow for optimal ventilation and rain protection.
While the reflective graphics and silver striping offer excellent visibility during day and night, the narrow tail prevents turbulence and offers side wind stability. The carbon fiber dashboard features a collapsible mount for wireless speed and a heart rate monitor or GPS. You can easily adjust the lights and mirrors from the cockpit. The lightweight BeWAW is new for 2009.
