Vehicle with good mobility in rough terrain, Zoomcamp

A battery-powered, four-wheel drive bike suitable for people with disabilities

Description
The vehicle is specifically designed to get around in hilly terrain. The zoom is designed so that all four wheels are on the ground, regardless of how uneven the ground is, for constant four-wheel-drive. The safest position for the user is cross-legged (see photo 4) with thighs held in place (see photo 5).
The vehicle is classified as a Class III bike and is therefore permitted to travel on bike paths, roads and even off-road. Max speed is 20 km/h.
