Steering & Braking

A conventional steering system was designed based off of the strict SEM America safety regulations.

Design:

A custom steering wheel was designed to allow the driver simple vehicle control at the hands. 

The manufacturing of the steering components was completed in house that took many operations over long hours.

The vehicle was required to pass a 20% incline test at the competition. With the requirement, performance mountain bike components were used and fitted into the HESPHEV.

To accomodate for two front brakes, a splitter was manufactured to allow for the control of both brakes in one handle. The rear brake was controlled through a different lever.
