The HiLo Bikes project has been initiated and engineered by Gert Jan, starting in 2009.
“Mechanics and cycling have fascinated me ever since my childhood. During secondary school I started dreaming of a faired recumbent bike for faster and more comfortable commuting to school. While studying Mechanical Engineering and later on working at my first job the 4 wheeled bike became a reality with a first prototype in 2013. Following feedback from many people the 4 wheeler received the major upgrade ‘HiLo Active Seat System’ along with many smaller improvements.
I am passionate about people and care for the beautiful planet we live on. It is my conviction that technology should always serve people and make this world a better place. Therefore I love cycling, since it is healthy for both the cyclist and the environment.”
Gert Jan is currently living and working in Loenen aan de Vecht, the Netherlands.
