Can the Hydrofoiler™ handle chop and swell?

You can ride on oceans, rivers and lakes, handling moderate chop and swell. The front tiller section of the Hydrofoiler self-levels and help to punch through chop and over swell as you ride. Check out this video showcasing the bike in choppy conditions. 


*Always ride to your ability and practice caution in riskier conditions.

Who can ride the bike?

Confident swimmers between 135lbs – 220bs of any age (no license required).What happens when I stop pedalling?The bike floats on its side when stationary. When you stop pedalling you will slowly sink down into the water, buoyancy prevents the bike from sinking when you stop pedalling. Master the remounting technique to perform a "submerged launch" to get foiling again from deep water.

How fast does the Hydrofoiler™ go?

The bike boasts a top speed of 13mph (12 knots) and a cruising speed between 5 – 9mph (6 – 9 knots).

How long does the battery last?

The battery can assist the rider for up to one hour. Riding conditions, rider input and ability will affect ride time. Whilst riding you can check the remaining battery life which is shown on the heads-up display mounted on the Hydroiler handlebars. The 70 cell lithium-ion battery pack delivers 22Ah. Each battery pack can be easily swapped out for recharging, with each recharge taking 5 hours. 


 *Ride duration is subject to rider weight, water conditions and level of electronic assistance the rider has selected.

How do I transport the Hydrofoiler™?

The Hydrofoiler™ XE-1 is the most mobile personal watercraft in the market today. The bike is designed to be broken down into three parts; front foil, rear foil, and body. This allows for simple storage and transportation in-car or on roof racks. The Hydrofoiler™ can be assembled within 5 minutes and carried to the water by hand.

What riding gear would I need?
