The carbon fibre hydrofoils make it impressively lightweight, coming in at 20kg. A streamlined profile makes the bike hydro and aerodynamically efficient, and Manta5 believe future versions may be able to go even faster.
The Manta 5 hydrofoil appears to be a world first. The motorized aquatic bike is capable of reaching speeds of 20km/h, has variable levels of assist and can be packed down to fit in a car for easy transportation
Also, and perhaps most importantly, it rides on water. It is called hydro-foiling and it looks like a lot of fun.
For those of you who are interested in its specs – it has a waterproof battery and motor, with speeds up to 12 mph. The motor is 460 watts, and is expected to launch in June 2020.
The Manta 5 is looking to redefine cycling and water sports, and if riding a bike on water interests you, this is a product you definitely want to keep your eyes on.
