Semi-monocoque velomobile

Final render of velomobile semi-monocoque to be manufactured from plywood. The render does not include a few cut-outs for other components. I hope to get the final weight of this component down to less than 5 kilograms. This final design allows a 'safety capsule' around the rider a feature that I really wanted to have. Making from plywood makes an easy build and the possibility of a true 'flat pack' kitset velomobile. I am exploring the possibility of this being a Open Source Velomobile as this may lead to faster development once the basic design has been done.
