Manta5 Hydrofoil eBike at the Excellence Green Night


The Manta5 Hydrofoil eBike is half-bike half-plane and replicates the intuitive cycling experience on water using carbon fiber foils (the wings) and a fully waterproof eBike battery and motor.

The Hydrofoiler redefines cycling and watersports by enabling riders to launch and plane through open bodies of water – from ocean shorelines to lakes and rivers. Cyclists can reach speeds of up to 22kph, comparable to traditional sailboats. The bikes are made from strong carbon fibre and aircraft-grade aluminium, making them buoyant and light enough to carry.
