Bespoke Recumbent Bicycle Seat

This project was about creating a seating for the riders of a HPV for the world human powered speed challenge (Battle Mountain) and was part of my contribution to the Human Power Team Delft.

The goal was to create a more ergonomically fit seating for the individual athlete in order to increase their performance andreduce the chance of injury.

The project involved methods for design: 3d scanning and modeling around the rider, production: cnc milling and laminating the seat and validation: measuring pressure distribution and power output.
