Aquatic cycling – innovative idea from Schiller Sport


Schiller Sport Inc.. develops ‘X1 water bike’ – a new experience as a bike on water. Aquatic cycling is a further development of the project “baycycle” that has been started, which deals with a new form of cycling in which bicycles are set up on an air-filled basis. The 20 kg construction was made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel and offers maximum safety of use thanks to the two air-filled pontoons. The swinging twin propellers are controlled without rudders using only a bicycle handlebar. The user can turn left and right and also drive backwards, which otherwise only a few “Velocipede” in the world allow. A stimulating, dynamic and safe experience at a speed of 8 knots per hour (or 14.83 kilometers per hour). All photos made available are courtesy of Schiller Sport Inc.
