Hydrobike is an aquatic-sports vehicle, a recumbent bike for locomotion in water. It can be used both in recreation and serious sport.
To ensure an adequate drive and stability of rest position the hull-construction is based on a catamaran-type. Both recumbency position and direct front drive offer an efficient acceleration. Feed motion is controlled by a pitch propeller. With its vertical rotation the drive mechanism also substitutes the rudder. Rotor blades and direction can be regulated by bowden cables.
