Riding the Armadillo should be safe for you and your fellow cyclists and pedestrians. Safety is one of the great qualities of the Armadillo.
No more falling over
The high stability more or less eliminates the risk of falling over, which is by far the most common cause for serious injury for cyclists.
The rider has high control over the bike in all situations. It stops efficiently even on very difficult situations such as breaking hard on uneven surface while cornering, thanks to the suspension and stability.
Good traffic overview and visibility
The rider sits at the same height as cars and has rear view mirrors, so traffic overview and visibility is comparable to cars.
Safe riding on bike paths
The small width (86 cm) makes it safe on double direction bike paths and is easier to overtake. The Armadillo is low enough not to obstruct traffic overview for other cyclists.
The speed capability is also increasing safety. As it easily keeps up with most other cyclists, the need to do risky overtakings decrease.
Replaces cars and vans
This is probably the most important safety implication. As the Armadillo has the capability to replace many car and van trips, the risk of being hit by a heavy vehicle is reduced.
