New Hydrocycle Lets You Bike In Waters
A new Hydrocycle is out on the market, it’s basically a watercraft that lets you “ride it” much like riding a bicycle, except you’ll be in water. The rider will move the pedals in a clockwise fashion to spin a 12″ propeller, allowing the Hydrocycle to drive smoothly on rivers, lakes, or even oceans at speeds up to six miles per hour. The Hydrocycle uses polyethylene pontoons that were developed by a professional canoe designer for optimum buoyancy (don’t worry, you won’t have to hold your breath to stay afloat)!
What’s even cooler is that this Hydrocycle can operate in less than a foot of water. The water bicycle can also hand 3 foot ocean swells. Regardless, all users should definitely wear a life jacket and know how to swim, as you can never be too careful when you are in the ocean. The 17″ powder-coated aluminum frame comes with a quick release seat clamp that will adjust the seat height for different sized people.
The Hydrocycle will also have twin storage compartments alongside a cup holder to prevent your important gear from water damage. Now here’s the catch, the machine will cost you $3,600. Not sure how many people would be willing to pay that price just yet but we may find the company drive the price down to increase sales.
