Hayili (2015-2016)

Hayili (2015-2016)

Our first model in 2016, Hayili, is a rear-load cargo tricycle built from bamboo. Hayili will be able to carry a load of 100 kg in addition to the rider, in a cargo volume of 280 L. To maximize grip, three wide off-road tires are used along with a differential on the rear axle. Safety, ease of use and high maintainability are ensured through the use of a multi-speed internal gear hub along with disc and drum breaks. While the current model is custom built by hand, a methodology is being developed that would enable the production of these bikes to scale rapidly. In light of this, most components used are off-the-shelf parts, which are easily available in most target countries.
