This hydrofoil bike enables you to plane across the surface of fresh and salt water. The Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 is a pedal-electric bicycle described as "the new frontier of cycling."

The award-winning prototype has a 400-W motor that enables you to traverse across lakes, oceans and rivers. The hydrofoil bike features cutting-edge technology, including carbon fiber hydrofoils, an e-bike battery and variable pedal assist. The drag-reducing design and carbon fiber-reinforced nylon propeller let you quickly travel across fast-moving bodies of water. Its front tiller also helps with rough choppy waters and steep swells. The modular Hydrofoiler is easy to transport and assemble with two identical screws.

This on-water cycling experience demonstrates how consumers can enjoy outdoor activities in new ways.
