Why a WAW?
The structure of a Waw is comparable with that of a car : the centre part of the body is a self-supporting structure, providing an excellent compromise between lightness, sturdiness and safety. The integrated roll bar extending behind the riders head increases protection.
Steering is done by the two suspended front wheels, the non-suspended rear wheel is driven. This combination results in a tight and sporty drive style.
Crank axle and seat can be adjusted to fit different rider sizes.
The front and the rear part of the body are detachable, making the Waw a lot shorter for transport or for long-term storage (2m80 to approx. 1m80), simplifying maintenance and, possibly, repair of these body parts.
The Waw is produced mostly by hand, on specification of the customer and in limited series. With the experienced gained with the Waw, we one day hope to be able to launch even better velomobiles into the world.

The idea and design of the Waw comes from Frederik Van De Walle.
Development and production are in the hands of Dries Callebaut.
