Manta5 Hydrofoiling Bicycles for Sale
The Manta5 Hydrofoiling bike takes the cycling experience and elevates it on water.
From the beginning, the founding Manta5 crew quickly became hooked on the thrilling and surreal experience of flying over the water’s surface. This combination of outdoor activity whilst feeling at one with the environment was completely novel and created a welcome break from the pressures of modern life. Created by their founder Guy Howard-Willis, this initial dream and its loyal community of followers has now transformed into a global brand.
Just like a high-performance bicycle, Manta5 envisioned a concept that was lightweight, fast, agile, easy to transport and to assemble. The early human-powered prototypes revealed a vast number of subtle complexities, especially the hydrofoils and propeller profiles, and their position relative to each other. On top of this, the rider would need to launch from the beach, jetties or from deep water, without settling for any existing bulky buoyancy or hulls.
Manta5’s profile exploded internationally when their prototype won Gold in the Concept Category at the 2017 Best Awards. The video submission was picked up by media companies the world over and the exposure resulted in over 350 million video views on Facebook alone.
Since then, Manta5 has successfully manufactured the Hydrofoiler XE-1 in the numbers required to meet popular demand whilst never compromising on quality. In addition, they released the first international deliveries of hydrofoil bikes into both the United States and Europe. To add to their notable accomplishments, Manta5 has also set a new world record crossing the New Zealand’s most notorious body of water, the Cook Strait, riding 24 km on a hydrofoil bike between the North and South Island of New Zealand.
