As a result of the pandemic, more and more people are embracing sustainable getaways, like long distance bicycle trips. When you need to keep your distance from others, there's maybe no better way to do it than by exploring nature or traveling on a bike.
But for some of us, there are complications. Traveling far distances by bike might not be that comfortable. You can only bring a small amount of luggage and you need to set up a tent every time you camp. If only you could bring everything that you needed with you ...
Well, that's exactly what the Z-Triton 2.0 aims to do. This truly unique three-in-one vehicle combines an electric tricycle, a boat, and a compact camper.
DIY meets high tech
The project was started by a Latvian entrepreneur and cyclist named Aigars Lauzis. He loves traveling by bike and even once biked from London to Tokyo! But as much as he loved his bicycle trips, he started to wonder if there was a way to make the journey more comfortable. In fact, it in the middle of this trip, he began to work on the prototype that became the Z-Triton!
After getting home, he hired a group of designers to turn his wild idea into something that others would be interested in using. The result is honestly the most curious, peculiar—and, perhaps, most awesome—vehicle we've ever seen.
