Lehel Dominiak steps up
It all started many years ago.
Lehel, traditionaly a coach builder company, making carriages and coaches has diverted from its roots, and became a modern "coachbuilder" specializing on horse powers rather then horses. However the love of carriage driving never faded.
At the beginning it was Wolfgang Schairer from Germany who supplied lehel team with carriages. But due to his unfortunate illnes we have turned directly to the factory, and partnered up with Zdislaw Dominiak from Piasky. At the beginning it was a simple buyer supplier relationship, which soon made a step up. With the involvement of Zdislaw and Maciej, new projects started and new ideas were born. This led to more and more innovations, special designs and succesful showings. Dominiak is probably the largest carriage factory on the world, producing thousands of vehicles from flat wagons to complicated coaches. But the sport line is something else.
The difference is similar to car industry. Millions of fords are sold daily, but the rally department needs the involvement of special people, who help to design test and promote. This is what Lehel is trying to do. Lehel with the professional advisors of Jozef Dobrovitz, Martin Holle, Bram Chardon and many more is constantly working on product development.
A few years ago Lehel team had an idea to try some other manufacturers, and one of the bigest name in the industry from Holland has declined the offer to work together. This has led to the current step. Lehel has decided to develop a full range of competition vehicles, that are without a doubt the best on the world. Now we have the solution from pony single to horse team. Our products are already prooven. Bram Chardon was the winner of the cones competition in Tryon 2018. The carriages have participated on major international events and world championships with great success.
Now the test period is over, and the carriages are ready to be sold to the publick

Lehel is the only brand that supplies the full range of vehicles based on the same design.
It is not a secret that the motivation came from Van Den Heuvel carriages. The look has inspired the designers of the Lehel range. This goes back to the unsuccesful attempt to purchase a vehicle from them, which resulted in a conversation where it was approved in writing to production manager Vilmos Jambor to go our own way designing our own carriages by Van Den Heuvel. At that point the decision was made to follow the beautiful shape, but change the technique and upgrade the vehicles and make them available for all disciplines. The carriage is NOT a COPY. The geometry, the technology, the engineering has nothing to do with the dutch carriage, even the body is changed significantly. However the wave does follow the current trend of look.
The carriages are equiped with the latest technology. Fifth wheel position, turn delay, braking system, balance, ergonomy....all all developed with the best engineers and competitors. Only premium material is used throughout the vehicles.
Prices 12-16000 Euro.
