There is a rather unique back story of Z-Triton. Aigars, the Founder, cycled from London to Tokyo and came up with the idea of amphibious e-camper while staying for a few months in Shanghai. Z-Triton is his take on a cycle-touring upgrade. Take a look at how it’s evolved over time.
Beta prototype - production model
After more than 100 pre-orders received in the first few months since the completion of the Alpha prototype the works on Beta have begun. The manufacturing prototype or production model will have various design and functionality improvements.
Media attention / pre-orders / investors
Massive worldwide media attention with constant photo/video shoots. The first 100 pre-orders are in. Pre-seed funding round at full speed with the first investors from the Baltics and Singapore jumping aboard.
Design prototype of Z-Triton completed and ready for action.
Right after the return home Aigars rolls up the sleeves and sets up his studio - ZELTINI. Early design prototyping of Z-Triton takes place – 3D modelling, CNC milling, woodworking, welding, 3D printing, etc.
Aigars completes his London – Tokyo - Home bicycle journey
In Tokyo, after 30,000+ km, Aigars turns around and takes the Trans-Siberian train from Vladivostok to Moscow. He cycles through Western Russia to his home in native Latvia. The life-changing 4 year cycle journey is completed. For more info check out his BLOG
Initial idea & concept model – Shanghai
While still on the road and staying for a few months in Shanghai Aigars comes up with an idea of how to upgrade cycle touring. Tiny house-boat-trike is born. Initial sketches lead to the creation of the first mock-up model at his tiny apartment and the first tests in the local city park.
Aigars, the Founder, cycles from London to Tokyo.
After 6 years being based in London Aigars embarks on a solo cycle-touring journey across Eurasia, over 30,000km and 4 years with 4 stops to work as a designer in Istanbul, Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai.
