rescue bike

rescue bike is defined as an HPAV (Human Powered Amphibious Vehicle). An alternative vehicle used by lifeguards in duties such as beach patrol and sea rescue. Equipped with the newest and most advanced technologies, it combines innovative solutions such as obtaining usable energy from the light of the sun and uses recyclable materials in its composition, as a way to incentivate and help preserving the environment. In the same way as a bicycle, the rescue bike combines the simplicity, practicality and reduced to minimal weight level, with the advantage of being capable of being driven on the sea.
