We proudly present the Manta5 to Australia

Cycle upon water with cutting edge technology.

The Manta5 was constructed using the scientific know-how employed by the designers of America’s Cup sailboats. This Hydrofoil eBike elevates the humble bike to a 007 machine. No longer restricted by roads or paths, cruise over Australian waterways, lakes and oceans. Unlock a whole new world of fun, exercise and transportation with your tribe. Suitable for all levels of fitness.

The Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 eBike offers a unique experience on the water. It allows you to cycle along the shores of your favorite rivers, oceans and lakes. Riders can reach a top speed of 13 mph with the 460W brushless motor. The carbon-fiber reinforced nylon propeller and carbon-fiber hydrofoils are paired together to maximize lift and reduce drag. This makes it possible to handle anything from quiet lakes to the ocean.
