26 October 2021


The MANTA5 by futuremovement.co, the world’s first Hydrofoil e-bike is now available in Australia. It’s already huge in Europe and the US on board superyachts and among people who love to cycle, adventure and challenge themselves.

The MANTA5 has a 460 kW electric motor and can reach speeds of up to 22 kph.

The carbon-fibre reinforced nylon propeller and carbon-fibre hydrofoils are paired together to maximise lift and reduce drag.

This makes it possible to handle anything from quiet lakes to the ocean.

Luke Bakhuizen from Futuremovement.co says “This is a game-changer for bike riders everywhere”.

“It’s thrilling to be able to cycle on water. It’s great exercise too if you want to push yourself or simply enjoy the experience. Like flying, hang-gliding, roller-skating, mountain climbing and deep-sea diving, this is a spectacular feeling.”

Suitable for a wide range of fitness levels, riders can explore ocean coastlines, train along waterways, or cruise lakeside with friends and family.


Using the same technology as America’s Cup sailboats the MANTA5 Hydrofoil eBike opens up a whole new cycling frontier.

“If you’re a thrill-seeker, this is truly the top-shelf experience with ease and comfort. The MANTA5 is the future of cycling.”

The MANTA5 can reach speeds of up to 22 kph/11 knots and can be launched from the beach, platform, a boat or deep water. RRP $13,450.
