Designed by Velomobiel.nl the Quest is, quite simply, a human powered rocket that seems to defy the laws of physics.

Taking advantage of wind tunnel testing, the Quest's aerodynamic body maximizes the speed that can be achieved under pedal power, far exceeding what is possible on an upright road, or even time trial bike. At the same time its full suspension provides a remarkably smooth ride and drum brakes coupled with a drive train that is isolated from the elements ensures minimal maintenance requirements. Its fairing and kayak-style foam skirt shields the rider from the elements and allows you to ride in comfort through the rain and the cold.

This is the evolution of the bicycle.

Will you be one of the lucky few to call a Quest your own?
