Like them or loathe them, electric bikes are becoming more popular. E-bikes have infiltrated every genre of cycling: road, mountain, hybrids, even cargo and folding bikes. Now, the electric revolution is making its way onto the water with the Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1.
Manta5’s Hydrofoiler XE-1 is a hydrofoil e-bike that floats on water and is powered by a rider’s legs and a 400-watt electric motor. The pedal portion features a gearbox and both a chain and a shaft drive for the propeller.
