Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1: The Cycling Experience on Water

2 MINUTES READ

The feeling of riding the Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 is like nothing else. No roads, no traffic, an open-space riding experience. There is no hull so you can see into the water as you ride. The Hydrofoiler XE-1 uses two carbon fibre hydrofoils to provide enough lift to raise the body of the bike, and rider out of the water. The electric motor is quiet, not disturbing the natural tranquility – but the battery still offering a level of assistance for up to an 60 minutes on a single charge.

If you stop pedalling in the water or fall down, you are able to re-launch by performing a submerged launch to begin riding again

The bike by itself is buoyant, so it floats on its own for easy retrieval. In order to keep the bike practical for transport and storage, the buoyancy has been kept to a minimum. When a rider stops pedalling the bike, their combined weight will submerge under the water up to about chest-level. But, unlike other hydrofoil products, the rider can re-mount a stationary bike from underwater (an acquired skill with bragging rights) and perform a ‘submerged launch’ to get going again. Manta5 is the first to introduce this feature in any hydrofoil product. The bike has been designed for use in fresh and salt-water. Much like other water sports equipment, the Hydrofoiler XE-1 simply requires a more thorough wash following a salt-water ride.
