Gepubliceerd op 26 november 2009 00:00 (1135 keer bekeken) 0Reacties

Azub maakt bekend dat ze met de ontwikkeling van een tweetal trike modellen bezig zijn. Verder maken ze van de gelegenheid gebruik om wat kleine wijzigingen bekend te maken in het model Eco.

Bij de gegevens van de eerste trike zijn toch redelijk bekend. In 2010 moet het model beschikbaar komen en het is een redelijk eenvoudige fiets zonder allerlei vering. Naar aanleiding van een lange testrit worden nu de laatste wijzigingen in het model aangebracht. De verwachte prijs zou rond 1700 euro moeten liggen.
De fiets is tijdens de testrit heel gebleven. Dus dit type kan in productie worden genomen.

Verder wordt er een trike ontwikkeld die in een hogere uitrustingsniveau en prijssegment ligt. De Azub Max wordt genoemd als uitgangspunt. De fiets moet meer vering en allerlei andere mooie onderdelen krijgen.

Uit de onlangs geintroduceerde Azub Eco zijn wat modelwijzingingen gekomen. Ook wordt gedacht aan een model met kleine wielen zodat de fiets geschikt wordt voor jonge of minder lange mensen.

Hieronder wat fotos van de trike en daaronder het originele persbericht van Azub

Azub trike projects
and
new specifications on the Azub Eco

Uhersky Brod, Czech Republic, November 25th – press release

Since 2000 AZUB has been developing only recumbent bikes and as a brand it
is pretty well known as a producer of durable recumbents which are ready
for use in the most difficult conditions which can appear not only on
expeditions around the world but also in the city while commuting.

In spring 2009 we started to develop a trike which would fit into our line
of recumbents and which would offer all the advantages as our other bikes,
like the IPS – Ideal Position System, durability, good design and perfect
ergonomy.

At the moment we are working on two different trike projects which we
suppose to introduce during the year 2010 when AZUB will celebrate 10
years of recumbent experience. The first one should fit into our ECO line
of basic recumbents with affordable price, good quality components and
good comfort. We suppose a price around 1700 EUR.

Second project will probably appear later in production, and will fit
among our high level bikes like AZUB MAX. Not all features are decided,
couple of solutions are still under development, but we are pretty sure
that the trike will have unusual system of folding and many other clever
features.

This trike project has been developed in cooperation with Technical
University in Brno, Czech Republic, with use of the high end computer
technologies.

We are very happy that one of the prototypes has already survived a hard
test during 8 weeks long expedition around Iceland and western part of
Europe. Our friend and actualy also a test rider Brona Nagel (64) cycled
over 6000 km during this period and he came back with a fully functional
trike and with many ideas how to improve it. At the moment we are working
with him to change his ideas into reality and to introduce a perfect
trike.

There are also some news in specification of AZUB ECO. After almost a year
of production we have a good feed back from our customers and dealers and
we have decided to do some changes in specification which are valid just
from now. We add a folding stem into a standard as same as Novatec hubs
with cartridge bearings instead of ball bearings on Joytech hubs. All that
should increase the value of the bike and it has also increased the price
a little bit to 949 EUR. But we are sure that a bike with unexpected
stable ride, good comfort, Big Apple tyres, adjustable seat position,
adjustable seat size, 3x8 gearing etc. is worth such price.

We also suppose to introduce a a smaller version with 16“ wheels in 2010.
It will be suitable for smaller riders as same as for kids. The seat will
be adjustable into three different sizes – XS, S, M and we suppose a
Shimano Alfine as a standard component line.
