The Spearhead is the winner of the ISEL Formula Student design competition.
KTM just became major sponsor of this project, which is a great honour!
Inspired mainly by the KTM X-Bow, the Spearhead features a dark red / grey body with a separation along the center line to strengthen direction.
The two-tone body helps define the concept shape and adds lightness to the whole.
Aerodynamics study led to some adjustments in the front deflector and headrest to reduce pressure in the pilot's helmet.
Strong attitude, purpose and precision is evident in the resulting shape, which is similar to a spear piercing the air with great velocity. Hence the name Spearhead, "the leader of an attack".
