Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE lets you Bicycle on Water
There was a time when road bikes were popular but now it is time for waterbikes to make some noise. What if you could ride a bicycle on water? Yes, on water. Walking on water is not possible but at least we can bicycle on water, thanks to Hydrofiler XE by Manta5. You still don’t believe me, do you? Just go down this article and watch the video yourself. I saw this humongous bike at CES 2020. Due to its size, it is not easy to carry. It uses the hydrofoil technique to stay afloat and requires you to continuously pedal it.
As I spoke to one of their team, Hydrofoiler XE has a battery life of 1 hour. As soon as the battery reaches a threshold, it pops up a warning on the display. If the battery dies, it does sink down if there is a person on it. If you have a life jacket and can escape, the bike can escape too as it can handle its own weight and stay afloat.
