Shuttle-Bike: Amphibious Pedal Power Boat
How would you like to turn your bicycle into an amphibious vehicle? Now you can thanks to the innovative team behind the Shuttle-Bike.
The Italian design team at SBK engineering have been creating this system for over 20 years now, and it looks like all of the details are finally starting to get dialed in. The system comes packaged in an ultra portable backpack, and the boat itself can be inflated in just 10 minutes using pedal power (think of it like a stationary exercise bike). The Shuttle-Bike boat itself is equipped with all of the clamps needed to mount this to your 2 wheeler, so there’s no need to worry about altering your bike. The rear wheel activates a pivoting roller gear mechanism that transfers power to the propeller located under the front wheel through a flexible, completely waterproof driveshaft. The propeller is controlled by the bike’s handlebars, and the Shuttle-Bike is capable of a top speed of 10kmh.
