KU VS KALUP – BE SEEN NOT HEARD – KINGSTON UNIVERSITY
KALUP’S drive for innovation inspired the idea of proposing a collaborative design project to Kingston University. As KALUP believes you should ride in style, Kingston University has developed a striking Kingston University Electric bike, which is not just fast but silent too. We wanted to support the KU students the best way we could. Our mission was to design a racing suit and team wear to complement their exceptional electric motorbike.
KUe – The UK’s highest scoring Formula Student electric team
Kingston University’s e-Racing team and the UK’s highest scoring Formula Student electric team. They have held onto their title as the highest ranking UK electric team for consecutive years. They wanted to continue a secure sponsorship funding, making them able to run year on year – encouraging more students to become creative in the Automotive and Motorsport field. For over 5 years Kingston University students have been developing electric racing motorbikes – KALUP wanted to support this.
The bikes are entered into racing series such as e-Grand Prix and TTxGP. The most recent success of the team has been at the Isle of Man TT Zero, where the Ion Horse has finished 3rd in class , but has also taken the top University prize Students work close with Industry to bring new developments into racing electric bikes.
The future plans include smashing the UK land speed record for electric bikes again, as well as developments to the Ion Horse and the exciting possibility of entering Moto E racing series for 2015. KU e-Racing is a team of students who have the passion and drive to compete in the top classes of electric racing and would love to tell you more about the projects.
KALUP ELECTRIC WOMAN
The special edition design by KALUP for KU ‘Electric Woman’ was developed over the past few months by our specialised team. KALUP applied all their technical know how and bespoke hand made quality to the final race-ware suit. What a result! Supporting t-shirts for the entire KU e-Racing team give the crew some electric blue.
