A velomobile is a human-powered vehicle related to the bicycle, for everyday use, with a body/shell that provides comfort, weather protection and luggage space. Due to the aerodynamically shaped bodywork, you can achieve a decent speed with little effort (30-50 km/h on flat road). Velomobiles are very suitable as commuter vehicles, for shopping or holidays, also are a good way to clear your mind while taking a tour or a road trip with your friends.
Our company slogan is “together for perfection”. This slogan perfectly describes what we stand for. Together with our team we want to deliver the best quality to our customers every day, in order to provide a great cycling experience. Velomobile World was born out of passion. The founder, Jan Wijnen, has been passionate about velomobiles and bicycles since he was 14 years old. His first velomobile was an aluminum Alleweder, after which he bought a Quest from velomobiel.nl.
From 2003 to 2006, Jan Wijnen worked as a volunteer in Romania. Because of this, he came into contact with the opportunities that Romania has to offer. In 2012 he combined his two passions in Breaza in beautiful Romania: velomobiles and entrepreneurship. At the end of 2018 an opportunity arose to distribute the Alpha 7 velomobile, designed by Daniel Fenn. From spring 2020 we have signed a contract with Raderwerk that we can also distribute the Milan SL and GT through the existing dealer network. View our dealer network here >

For which purpose do you want to use the velomobile? Which one is right for you? To give you a little help in your decision, we made a comparison table to see which is the best option for you. Most of our customers have given more attention to speed. Speed means you can drive longer distances with the same energy or it takes you less energy to drive the same distance. Take a look at the table above, then we can also assist you with all the info that you need.
Use the configurator, found on every model page, to choose the desired characteristics or extra options for your velomobile. Remember that sending the configurations to us it’s not the actual order, we use it to create and send you a quotation based on your options. After you receive the answer from us, we can discuss further info before we continue to the next step on the road for your velomobile.
The last step is to get you in touch with your local dealer. We have a list of salespoints/local dealers locations, in different countries, so finding the best solution for you is a matter of time. Here you can see a velomobile in front of your eyes and have a drive test to feel the experience with this special vehicle. After establishing all the details, we will start building your velomobile according to your requirements. View dealers page here >
Werner Klomp, one of our clients, took some time to share with us his experience over the years with a few models of velomobiles.
I just want to write something positive as a customer of VelomobileWorld.com; In one year, I drove about 16.000 till 20.000 km with a velomobile made by VelomobileWorld.com in Romania, and that’s already over 10 years with a lot of fun and almost no problems.
The velomobiles are getting better and better, lighter and lighter, faster and faster. Therefore I thank the Romanian producers and off course the designer Daniel Fenn and also the distributor Ymte with whom I have also good connections. If there is a problem, what normally is small, the help from all three of them is very fast. I never had a problem that big in the last 8 years that I couldn’t drive on to the destination I want.
The first Velomobile was a Strada, which I drove in two years about 50.000 km and the only problem was the broken suspension on the back. This part made from aluminum was on the post after two days at my place to repair it. Strada was a little bit big for me, that is when Daniel came to Velomobiel.nl and started to work there. At that time he designed the DF, which is like a smaller Strada, with the complete team from Velomobiel.nl. The DF velomobile came and I drove it with a lot of fun and speed, over 50.000 km in two years. By driving so many kilometers you’ll always find something to make better. All those experiences I offered to the team to make it even better than already was. The time goes on, people want to do their business to work, not always together, so Ymte started Intercitybike and Daniel is working for himself in southern Germany.
Daniel designed a new model called Alpha 7, which is a bit bigger than DF but a bit smaller than DF XL. This velomobile is about 21 kg, which is 3 kg lighter than the normal DF, so as you can see, it is still getting better and better. This Velomobile is made in Romania of course, and at a really good quality. Also if the new velomobiles have some problems, they always fix them very fast and the customers are getting help. The Alpha is now also produced with tank steering, which is made from carbon fiber and very light.
At this moment I have an Alpha with tank steering at home and a DF that was specially made for me with special parts and special carbon fiber to make it lighter for me. This one made me happy and I drove 500 km already, with a lot of hill meters in it the last 5 days. The speed between Alpha and my special DF is almost the same, but for me the DF fits very well to my body, so I am very lucky to have this part built for me in Romania.
So I want to thank the whole team in Romania for their work, the good parts and the deliver … thanks a lot guys.
We have happy clients that are delighted about the velomobile experience, in over 20 countries.
