HYDROBIKE - Bike Catamaran Concept


Hydrobike is a sports device for exercising or cruising on water. It´s based on two hulls like a catamaran. This enables stability on wavy water. The rider got the position of an recumbent bike - low center of gravity - and moves a front-prop which can rotate through its own axis.

Amazing summerproject from 2007 at HTW Dresden. I built a lot of 1:1 models which at least were able to swim. The complexity of transmission system for this bike/boat will be a challenge for the future. Water is a quite tough medium; hard to get speed on the vehicle. So Electric Hybrid Systems will be warmly welcome.
