Say hello to the AKO Trike.
What started as a personal challenge, has now become a venture of over 5 years in development. A history full of innovation, failures, rejections & achievements.
It was in 2016 when the trike design has developed its first shapes and got a wider recognition. Artūras Mikalauskas – the founder – found a design student – Lukas Avėnas – who was crazy enough to jump on such a venture. With the mentorship & ideology suggestions from Artūras, they have successfully created the AKO Trike concept design. Later that year, Lukas won the Young Designers Award for his design. Since then, Artūras initiated the build of a first concept-proof prototype.
“The challenge was to find crazy enough people to join this venture.”
Team expanded, vision was made clear – to bring back the thrill of riding. Team AKO got accepted to a Latvian-organised Buildit Hardware Accelerator where essential knowledge on how to turn a great idea into a successful business model was gained. Prototype ZERO – completed.
Despite the madness all around, we’ve built a second prototype – the MVP. Completely refined units, custom aluminum parts, electric power-train, two seats, and the first glances of exterior. It’s epic. It became the sandbox to test out various modifications & invite people for a test-ride.
A vehicle that combines the very best high-end technical solutions with an exceptional design
After enormous amount of test-rides, modifications and upgrades we are finally ready for the year 2021. The year we unveil our final prototype with every declared feature and even more.
The year we begin planning the series production.
We’re a small team of dedicated engineers & builders. We’re not some market giant. We’ve been developing the trike for over 5 years by ourselves. We have enormous dedication and drive to move forward. We aim to introduce the market a new alternative. And exactly for that – we need your help.
