New Rocket Bicycle record 285 km/h in Interlaken airport!
Last update (May 2014) / New project: Exotic Thermo Engineering has just started the construction of a new rocket bicycle, with monstrous potential, that will excite all speed enthusiasts. On October 7th 2013, in Switzerland, François Gissy hit a peak speed of 285 km/h in only 6.7 seconds with the help of a 300 kg thrust rocket engine which gives an initial acceleration of 2 g. This is an amazing performance for such a lightweight bicycle and without aero fairing. The future propulsion unit will produce 1,500 kg of thrust, five times more than the one currently used! The theoretical acceleration would reach 10 g and the 300 km/h mark would be attained in a little second! The bicycle will be designed to exceed 400 km/h. Obviously, it is not certain that the full power could be used, but we will do our best. Because of the enormous physical and aerodynamics constraints, the development of this rocket-propelled bicycle will be conducted with the assistance of an engineering school in Switzerland, and wind tunnel tests will be done. To increase the spectacular effect and high tech level, the new propulsion unit will operate with vegetable oil. The result will be an impressive flame and a deafening noise. The most powerful Top Fuel dragsters have an initial acceleration of 5.5 to 6 g. The quickest rocket-powered motorcycle in the world reaches 4.5 g. The best Top Fuel Motorcycles can accelerate up to 4 g at the start and the world's quickest Jet Dragsters (quarter mile in 5 seconds at 530 km/h) leave the start line up to 3.5 g. Our goal is to upset this hierarchy on the acceleration level at the start, with a slim rocket bicycle without fairing. The new bicycle will be ready in early 2015 for the 20th anniversary of our first speed record with a rocket-propelled bicycle. We are open to any proposals for sponsorship.
