We are a team driven to challenge the impossible. Our projects centre on human power: with this as our only limit, we can take lightweight efficient vehicle design to the extreme, on land or in the air. We are designing for the future – as sustainable transportation becomes more crucial, the innovations and creativity in our projects become more relevant. We want to inspire the public to do more with less and educate youth to prioritize creative design for a changing world.

Currently, our primary focus is the design and construction of a high-speed human-powered vehicle to capture the 133km/hr world cycling speed record at the World Human-Powered Speed Challenge in September.

All of AeroVelo’s accomplishments are made possible through generous donations from individuals, research grants and corporate sponsors.

Aerodynamic Design of Eta

Aerodynamic Design of Eta

A lot of what it takes to go break the world record at Battle Mountain is the efficiency of the external aerodynamic shape. A huge amount of work had been done to design and optimize the shape of Eta prior to the start of summer to ensure we get the least drag on the vehicle. InContinue Reading
