The victorious vehicle is the Eta speedbike, a 55-pound, aerodynamic, bullet-like bike enclosed with a carbon-honeycomb shell and whose frame is made with carbon fiber. Inside, the driver nearly lies down, almost parallel with the ground, a bit like a recumbent bike. To navigate, the pilot consults an on-screen display powered by dual SD cameras, while pedaling his or her way into fame.
The contest is still underway, so amazingly, it’s possible that another vehicle could even best the Eta’s blistering 85 mile per hour clip. Whew! It’ll take more than a Huffy to beat that one.
