Looking for the perfect Christmas present.
This summer’s ultimate riding toy.
If the vision of these Kiwi entrepreneurs is realised, then commuting could be about to get a whole lot different – with the upcoming release of the world’s most advanced hydrofoil bike.
Proclaimed as “the next frontier on water”, the Manta5 has an electric motor that you can glide over the water using a pedal assist or simply throttling with no effort at all. The carbon fibre hydrofoils make it impressively lightweight, with the motorised version coming in at 20kg and the manual 14kg. A streamlined profile makes the bike hydro and aerodynamically efficient, and although Manta5 believe it can go faster with more R+D, at the moment it can reach an impressive 20km/h.
