New Zealand-based company called Manta5 has created the world’s most advanced hydrofoil bike that allows you to plane across the water’s surface like never before.
This vessel pairs hydrofoil – a lifting surface in water – and electric bicycle technology with a propeller to allow riders to glide across the surface. Called Hydrofoiler XE-1. This bike is designed to glide across any body of water, including lakes, rivers, and the ocean.
It comes equipped with a battery and a quiet 400-watt electric motor that powers a propeller, and also ensures silence for use in all environment settings. Very important, if fallen off, which may happen on the first few rides, the bike can be relaunched from deep water.
However, this is the most unique and intuitive cycling experience to date.
Manta5 is planning their pre-sale launch for February 2018 and have priced the unique bike at around $5,237.
