Hydrofoiler XE-1


Ride Experience

New ways to cycle. No roads. No traffic.

Adjustable Electric Assist

The Hydrofoiler XE-1 features 7 levels of variable electric assist. Riding on the lower level dramatically extends your range and duration of the ride up to 4 hours. An effective cross training tool a rider can adjust the level of assist mid ride giving you a break when you need it. When riding on full assist you can maintain foiling speeds just by lightly rotating the pedals.
