Comfort and safety
We understand how important it is to feel safe and to have enough comfort.
Our vehicle combines the features of a bicycle with the comfort of a car. As a result, we have obtained a vehicle that is safe and comfortable while taking care of his physical condition and the environment.
Thanks to the use of 4 wheels, EQHawk provides excellent ride comfort and stability.
This easy to drive vehicle is equipped with LED lights to facilitate the visibility of it to other drivers on the road.
The EQHawk is equipped with a seat that can be adjusted in several positions to give everyone the most comfortable riding position. Getting in and out of the vehicle is easy for both the driver and passenger, as well as for the disabled.
To ensure your safety the design of the vehicle protects you and a passenger against weather conditions as well as during a road collision or accident.
Additionally the built-in frame and the crush zones absorb energy during an accident and the seat belt provides protection during rollover.
The EQHawk also gives you functional luggage space. Its spacious trunk can also be enlarged by the area of the passenger seat.
EQHawk - the perfect car and bike replacement
Imagine going anywhere without worrying about parking space. EQHawk is a vehicle that combines the best features of a car and a pedal-assisted ebike.
It is eco-friendly. The EQHawk Hybrid version is equipped with a electric motor to suit your riding style.
EQHawk is categorized as a bicycle so you can use streets as well as bicycle paths. Parking is no longer a problem either.
The EQHawk is safer than a traditional bike thanks to a specially constructed safety cage in its body and custom lighting. We believe that our hybrid velomobile is an excellent compromise in terms of personal transport.
Need more reasons?
Riding the EQHawk is as healthy as riding a bicycle. It has been designed to provide the user with the most comfortable riding position, while increasing the efficiency of muscle work.
The EQHawk is a hybrid vehicle, so you can choose the type of drive – classic bicycle pedal drive, battery drive, or electrically assisted pedal drive.
For your convenience, the EQHawk is equipped with useful accessories, such as dashboard touch panel, stereo with speakers, smart apps, GPS tracker and LED lights.
In the front of the vehicle there are two storage pockets – perfect for maps or documents. Behind the driver, there is a seat for a passenger and a large luggage compartment
Do you want to be up to date with our activities?
Years ago the idea was born. It was born from passion and dreams. It has been developing gradually. It had been changing and transforming into its present shape.
The main driving force behind this idea was the desire to create a useful vehicle for people who seek innovative perspective for personal transport.
From the very beginning particular steps were needed to reach the current stage. From a simple idea to the first action. From sketches to the computer visualisations. From a model to the prototype.
We are people with passion and a dream to bring something more than just a simple velomobile.

The EQHAWK project – the Polish bicycle of the future
Project received funds within Operational Programme Eastern Poland (POPW), Priority 1 Entrepreneurial Eastern Poland, Action 1.1 Start-up platforms for new ideas, Sub-action 1. 1.2 Development of start-ups in Eastern Poland
Amount of the grant: 862 665,00 zł
The project is a follow-up of the innovative product and innovative business model, which was developed during our previous project – carried out within Sub-action 1. 1. 1 of POPW.
Main objective of the project is to design an innovative built-up four-cycle bicycle and its market placement. The objective will be achieved by:
– designing the chassis and vehicle interior,
– constructing the prototype, testing it and evaluating the assumptions,
– carrying out marketing activities, including participation in trade fairs, which will increase awareness of the product and will help to reach the target group.
