Team GB ride revolutionary Lotus bike

By Phil Bainbridge

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - The British track cycling team’s new Lotus bike features an interchangeable “cockpit” that allows it to transform from a mass-start drop-handlebar bike to a pursuit bike with aero extensions.

With winning margins down to a thousandth of a second, Lotus Engineering and Hope Technology have teamed up with Team GB to create the Lotus x Hope HB.T, a revolutionary carbon-fibre bike that they hope will prove as ground-breaking as the Lotus 108, ridden by Chris Boardman at the Barcelona 1992 Olympics.
