Update August 17, 2014:
Well, as you can read in the responses Eurocircuits in Hungary took over the production of the Challenger and adapted it to the Azub Tricon.
It also appears Velomobiles.ca stopped producing the Borealis shell and concentrates on producing the Milan for the Canadian and US market. Probably a wise idea.
The ‘last chance’ for converting the ICE Sprint to a velomobile, the SpearHead Coroplast velomobile shell from Rick O’Brian is gone as well.
In the meantime I bought a KingCycle nose fairing clone from Ebay to face the weather in Autumn and Winter.
(You can tell it is cold and raining here. I’m into shells and fairings again…) 😀
There are two velomobile shells available to convert ICE Sprint RS trikes to full-blown velomobiles: The Borealis from Velomobiles.ca and the Challenger from Ocean Cycles in the UK. Both fit for the suspended 20″ rear wheel version of the ICE Sprint.
These kits might be interesting for you guy’s (and gal’s) left of the pond but here in Europe it’s probably cheaper to get a used velomobile right away and be done with it.
The very promising Azub Dyve fabric fairing unfortunately is a no-show so far. The one page ‘website’ from the German designer didn’t changed in the last 14 month and Azub never answered my inquiry by email.
The Hase Klimax fabric fairing looks like a pretty good solution for weather protection if you ride a delta trike. Light, foldable, easy to install but at around €900 not exactly cheap.
Unfortunately nothing remotely similar to the Klimax is available for tadpole trikes. As a trike commuter a light and foldable fabric fairing would be perfect. I’m pretty ok down to -5°C if it’s dry weather but rain at temperatures up to 10°C is a bitch and I really don’t like rain trowsers that much. I think it was Neil from ICE Trikes who wrote to me that they had a good look at the Klimax fairing, but designing a fabric fairing for their trikes would make no economic sense for them.
Looks like I have to go DIY from here. We’ll see… 😦
