Cora

C.O.R.A. (Cycling Optimized Recumbent Aeroshape) is the startup project of the team, and was an important step for all subsequent challenges. Born by the enthusiasm and passion of the first student members of the team, has allowed the participation WHPVA World Championship, held in May 2010 on the island of Jersey (GB). 
Features:

  • wheels 20 “front and 28” rear
  • monocoque composite foam core structural
  • aerodynamically optimized deflectors front and partial side cover of the rear;
  • integrated seat
  • front-wheel drive with the referral system through pulleys and single chain branch
  • two-speed gear multiplies the movement pedals

In 2011, for the WHPVA World Championship in Monza, are improved some aspects of the transmission:

elimination of the planetary gear integrated into the movement pedals

double loop chain multiplies the metric development between the two branches
