North One TV approached epm: technology with a view to setting a new world record for the furthest distance covered in 24 hours on a tandem bike. This was for the Channel 4 TV series, Speed with Guy Martin.
What we did
Using our expertise and knowledge that has helped us build F1 cars for many years, we helped with the design work and manufactured the monocoque and bodywork from carbon fibre. We tailored the lay up of the carbon fibre to make the tandem as light as possible whilst still retaining its strength.

Joining forces with fellow long distance mountain biker, Jason Miles, they managed to set a new world record of a staggering 565 miles in 24 hours. This was shown on TV on the 26th October 2014.
