If you love biking to work, but wish you could get there a bit faster, then the Raht Racer is just the cycle for you. This hybrid vehicle amplifies pedal power to enable cyclists to travel at car speeds while still getting a workout, and it has a roof to keep you dry in wet weather. The Raht Racer’s hybrid flywheel generator multiplies the pedal power of the driver so that the vehicle can hit a top speed of 100 miles per hour!
The three-wheeled Raht Racer features a composite body with room for everything the daily commuter needs, such as a laptop, a bag and lunch. It also prioritizes safety with a roll cage, air bags and seat belts. There is even a second seat for a passenger, so you can ride share to reduce your carbon footprint even further.
The Raht Racer is the perfect vehicle for people who want to bike to work but who live too far away from the office. The system is powered by electricity generated by the cyclist – it senses pedal torque from the rider and boosts it with sports car-worthy acceleration and speed. The energy generated by the driver also powers the on-board computer, which keeps track of the user’s performance and workout information.

“Safer than a motorcycle, or bicycle on a busy street, the Raht has an integrated roll cage, reinforced carbon fiber body and automotive safety features like headlights, tail lights, seat belts & air bag,” says the vehicle’s website. “It will forever change the way you exercise and travel.”
