XE-1 Specifications

A WORLD FIRST

The Hydrofoiler XE-1 is not just the world’s first hydrofoil electric bike. It is the world’s first hydrofoil to boast the submerge launch capability, allowing the rider to begin cycling from a stationary position underneath the water.

From its conception, the submerge launch technology came with great complexity. First-class aeronautical, hydrodynamical, mechanical, and electrical engineers conducted seven years of R&D, producing hundreds of foil combinations, components and prototypes.

A WORLD FIRST

CARBON FIBRE HYDROFOILS & PROPELLER

This combination is impeccably tuned. Striking a perfect balance between stability and manoeuvrability in all types of water-terrain.

Features

Hoerner Tip design for minimal drag and effective wingspan extension

Rear wingspan measures 6,5ft – front wing, 3,9ft

Simple modular design for easy assembly and in-car transport

Carbon-fibre reinforced nylon propeller, producing thrust at low speed and reducing drag at top speed

LITHIUM BATTERY TECHNOLOGY AND 460W E-BIKE MOTOR

Clever technology. Ultra simple to use. This waterproof duo is designed to enhance your riding experience. The battery can be removed in seconds and recharged over 5 hours from any standard power outlet. The motor has proven resilient against rigorous maritime tests yet produces no more than a quiet hum and inflicts zero harm on the environment.

Features

IP68 waterproof rating lithium battery

460W brushless e-bike motor assists riders to a top speed of 13mph

Variable pedal assist for three different riding experiences.

Easy Access battery pack for easy recharge into any standard wall socket.

~60min (based on conditions and rider)

BMS (battery management system) protects battery from overcharging, overcurrency, short-circuiting, overheating, excess voltage and deep discharge

Heads-up display panel clearly indicates battery level, speed, distance and ride mode

LITHIUM BATTERY TECHNOLOGY AND 460W E-BIKE MOTOR

BIKE FRAME, BUOYANCY MODULES, GEARBOX AND DRIVETRAIN

Purposefully designed, the bike’s skeleton is modular. Affording riders the choice to upgrade - not replace - their existing bike as Manta5 releases different foil combinations, buoyancy modules, motors, propellers and battery packs.

Features

TIG welded 6061-T6 aluminium frame, an aircraft grade alloy revered for its strength and weight advantages

Total bike weight: 63lbs (including motor and battery)

Chain & shaft-drive hybrid with industry standard components for easy replacement

Buoyancy modules designed to streamline the Hydrofoiler both under and above water

Proprietary gearboxes, custom designed to streamline the body profile to reduce drag

Independent crankset, gearbox and propeller/shaft sub-assembly, ensuring easy drive-train maintenance
