  • A hydraulically powered bike
    to 12,500 rpm and maximum operating pressure of 320 bar. Modifications to the standard products include cast-aluminum casings that reduce weight from 2.5 to 1.4 kg. A relief valve in the pump safeguards against excessive hydraulic pressure should the rear wheel lose all grip and spin excessively
  • Air spring key to robot handler
