“What was that?” “Where did you get it?” “Can I buy one?”
These are the questions surrounding the elusive Contes Engineering Ikanos Prototype,
which has been spotted cruising trails and beaches in Orange County, Oregon, and
Arizona. The code-named Ikanos Project draws so much attention that it has to be
transported in an enclosed trailer.
Undergoing development and testing currently, the Ikanos Project represents the
possible future in urban transportation and beach cruising.
You never know, the future may be pedal-powered.
January 2014: Interest in IKANOS has been gathering lately, and our Mark III Athos
designs will incorporate the commuter/city car concepts that the Ikanos prototype
has been proving out. Significant technical and regulatory challenges remain, but
rest assured we are sticking with the vision!
