SCHILLER X1 WATER BICYCLE
They say Jesus walked on water. We say, you can do even better – go bike on water! It may sound silly, but it’s now totally feasible with Schiller X1 Water Bike. Innovative, durable and fun to ride, X1 was recently announced by the producer Schiller Sports as the exclusive water bike which will allow you to broaden your biking horizons and go cycling off the beaten track and across open waters.
Consisting of a hard anodized and powder-coated 2.5 inches wide aluminum frame planted on a set of 11-foot rugged dual-chamber inflatable pontoons, the Schiller X1 Water Bike is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S. Built in California, this unique water bike sports a wide range of outstanding features such as stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum building materials for utmost durability and lightweight design, NuVinci n360 CVP transmission for maximum performance and drive-power harnessing efficiency, a proprietary two-stage 8:1 rotary gear reduction with Gates Carbon Drive Belt system and integrated handlebar steering for first-class cycling convenience and enjoyment, as well as twin oscillating propellers mounted on special reaction arms for simple and trouble-free rudderless steering allows it to reach up to 10mph. On top of these premium features, X1 also boasts a set of adjustable stems and comfy performance saddle, handlebars, cranks and pedals, as well as high-intensity LED lighting for optimum riding safety, a watertight storage compartment to pack your precious gear and a 30.9mm dropper seat post to fit your cycling needs and style best.
And though all this might sound too robust and heavy to pack into a water-borne bike, you don’t have to worry about having to fuss around complicated assembly procedures or demanding storage and portability options: X1 Water Bike weighs as few as 45 pounds and can be easily set up and broken down in under ten minutes. Plus, Schiller Water Bike is made to be as compact as possible when not in use and it claims a miniature spatial footprint in the disassembled state, guaranteeing easy storage and convenient transport inside a car trunk or bike rack. And last but not the least – each X1 comes with a stylish travel bag for bike parts and accessories, a plate with engraved serial number, client’s name and manufacture date and a two-year technology guarantee.
Sustainable, eco-friendly and completely human-driven, X1 offers an exhilarating and safe off-shore cycling experience to all biking enthusiasts who are always looking to get more out of their rides. Broaden your cycling horizons – with X1, you can set off for your life’s most scenic cycling tour along the shoreline and ride off into the sunset across the water like a true modern-day cowboy. watch the video below
