THE RIDE EXPERIENCE

CAN I RIDE?

Suitable for a wide range of sizes and abilities

Suitable for a family of riders. If you can ride a bike and swim, you can ride the Hydrofoiler SL3. Additional points of contact between the bike and rider, combined with a wide stable rear foil make the SL3 the easiest hydrofoiling product on the market.

NO PONTOONS REQUIRED

A genuine cycling experience on water

Manta5’s sole purpose has been to replicate an intuitive cycling experience on water. To be nimble, fast, able to carve and drift meant not settling for bulky buoyancy, pontoons or hulls. It’s a welcome trade-off that encourages learning and improving, and ultimately to loving every session. 

Falling off and getting wet when starting out is part of the fun. In less than an hour expect to go from novice to confident. From there, add fresh and salt water to your new biking terrain.

Even in choppy conditions falling is few and far between for experienced riders. More often than not adept riders slow down to semi submerge for a quick cool off. 

MANTA5 SL3 GENUINE RIDE EXPERIENCE

KEY TECHNIQUE

THE DEEP WATER LAUNCH

Like all foiling products, when you stop moving, the SL3 will lower until the chassis is floating on the water’s surface.

Riders can stay on the saddle semi-submerged when stationary, and when it’s time to launch, engage the throttle to take off.

Very similar to aircraft, the hydrofoil ‘wings’ begin to lift you up higher and higher out of the water the faster you go.

A surreal moment that has to be experienced.

HANDLES CHOP AND SWELL

SWELL & WAVE RIDING READY

The SL3 doesn’t just handle the chop and swell, it turns those conditions into a playground for thrill seekers. Hydrofoils lift you above the short wind chop and the reduced drag allows you to pierce over and down swell. 

Adding to the throttle and additional motor power all SL3s come standard with free spinning propellers. A guaranteed mind-blowing experience for advanced riders.

MANTA5 SL3 RIDE FITNESS

FUN FITNESS ON THE WATER

Go further on a single charge

When you combine human power with a 1000 Wh Hydropack Battery the result is remarkable. The SL3 boasts up to a 4.5 hour ride time – the longest ride duration of any e-foiling product on the market today.

Very few of us can maintain 400+ watts continuously. An effective cross training tool, the variable electric assistance means foil biking is possible for the rest of us making up the difference as and when you need it.
