Gives sufficient light for an occasional ride in the dark. If you ride in the dark a lot, or under difficult circumstances we advise to use 2 of these units, or to buy a heavier alternative.

 

Miscellaneous KV4 Velomobile Technical Data

One rear view mirror. (second one is optional).
A powerful bell (you will need it !)

Will I fit?

Maximum height is 195 cm, maximum weight is 95 kg.
Very broad shoulders restrict the maximum length as that means that the seat can not be put in the backmost positions. (The cockpit opening gets narrower towards the back. When foreseen during the building process, it is possible to make the opening a bit wider, so the seat can be moved back a bit further without the shoulders getting in the way)
