Fun to build and great to drive.
The KV4 is a fabulous velomobile kit that is fun to build and great to drive.
The all aluminum KV4 is based on decades of development of the Alleweder. The famous Alleweder velomobile goes back to the late 80’s. The KV4 is a complete redesign following the proven technology of the Alleweder. So it is a well developed product that has proven very suitable for everyday use. A prototype had already made over 10,000 km without problems before the first production run was started.

A velomobile is a streamlined recumbent bicycle.
Zero CO2 emission
Because it is a lot faster and more comfortable than a standard bike it is a practical zero CO2 emission mode of transportation.
The production of the aluminium that is required to manufacture a KV4 kit produces an estimated 59 kg of CO2. That is the equivalent of no more than a 313 km drive in an average European car producing 189.8 gram CO2 /km!
Lot’s of attention for the KV4 during a tour through the Netherlands. Here on the middle of the Dutch “Afsluitdijk” in the north.
Very competitive price
The KV4 is the world’s most affordable velomobile.

It is the streamlining that makes it very, very fast.
