If I rode that on my route back from summer camp into a 25 mph wind, it would take me 8 hours to get home without electricity. So far the worst without electricity on a MTB or the cargo bike left was 6. Normal time 3.5 hours. I carry 55 lb frequently, up to 80 sometimes.
 
The most benefit of leaning reverse trike is reducing lateral slip and fall when cornering in mountain winding road wet or gravel, 2 brakes in front ensure safety in down slope ,the trike is 28~30 kg with a battery and basket now, had better carry a spare battery and can charge in the camp

My youngest son was a member of his school's Human Powered Vehicle team when he was in college. Trikes were a popular design solution to the 'utility' criteria in the specs, but hey did poorly in the obstacle course due to tipping. His team solved this with a trike that tilted much like this one. These bikes were also in aerodynamic enclosures to perform well in the time trails. Very odd to see these sleek carbon fiber shells tip on a 45 degree around a corner!

As evolution of humankind rapidly in technology, the gears influence our lifestyle quite a lot,narrow track vehicle is one of them in near future
