LAKS3 / Innovative Trike

The Laks3 is a trike powered by muscular strength with a drive chain on the side, which makes a very low seating position possible. The saddle is substituted by a canvas chair cover at which the broad fenders form armrests. Two cardan joints in the steering spindle make it possible to drive the vehicle like a car while the handling is still very direct as accustomed from normal bikes. As principle and formal aspects of a canvas chair are adapted, the vehicle appears inviting and makes the unusual semi-lying sitting posture self-evident.
