Milan Velomobile coming to North America

When I first saw the Milan velomobile on the internet I thought it was rather interesting looking and liked the idea that it was a somewhat different approach to velomobile design.   I wasn't sure if I could get used to the idea of the bumps and how they looked.  I finally got to see one in person during ROAM and it looks much better in person than in pictures.  I then had short test ride and decided that I should built it or something very similar.  It has taken since then to make the right arrangements so we can  build the Milan GT(formerly Milan MK2) and the Milan SL for the North American market.

The plugs for the Milan GT will arrive here in about a month.  Hopefully the moulds for the Milan GT will be built before the plugs for the Milan SL arrive.  The plugs for the Milan SL will leave Germany about the time I get the Milan GT plugs.  We should have our first demo models done by mid summer.


  1. Hi Steve,

    these are really very good news.

    Yesterday I've seen a big pile of Milan parts that are being prepared for shipping.

    I wish you every success with the Milan project. Nice that I could help a bit to start the fire ;-)


    1. Thanks Markus. The short ride in your Milan has to be my most expensive bike ride yet. I am sure it will all work out very well in the end. Hopefully we can ride together in the future.


  2. Guess I'll have to go to the Borealis Page and see whether it's become something new. Be interesting to see how the cost compares for a North American version of the beast.

  3. Any updates on the Milan GT? I would love to see a North American release of this sled!

  4. I am interested in this velomobile also. Is there a USA distributor for this make? Who in the USA owns one in or near Southern California.
