« WATERBIKE YOURSELF ON THE RIVER KWAI »

Ride effortless downstream the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi City, by paddling yourself on board HYDROBIKES, the N°1 pedal powered tandem watercraft in the world !

No effort ! Simply pushed by the slow & regular current of the River Kwai.

Easy to ride ! Super safe and incredibly stable : under normal use, it is totally impossible to tip HYDROBIKE tandem over, due to its sturdy super stable platform and 3 floats conception.

The perfect stability of HYDROBIKE watercraft is in fact due to its perfect catamaran design.

No harm to the environment,  as no noise, no air and no water pollution !

Built for 2 side by side adult riders, aged above 18 years old, with swim knowledge, together with 1 possible/additional teenager, aged minimum 8 years old, with swim knowledge, safely sitting on the center platform, between the 2 adult riders.

Geared for high performance, with optimum stability and  high visibility on the water, Hydrobike is engineered for a safe, reliable and smooth ride, with comfortable seats ergonomically correct for different height riders.

Upright riding position provides comfort and full vision, and won’t get wet !

Faster than a paddleboat or a canoe, with minimum effort :

Standard Cruising Speed : 5-8 kilometer per hour (3-5 mph)

Top Speed …………………… : 10-15 kilometer per hour (6-9 mph)

 

Moves in forward, and/or reverse, even in shallow water (40 Cms – 18 inch).

HYDROBIKES provide safety, optimum manoeuvrability and buoyancy, even in windiest and waviest conditions, choppy water, high waves and swells in sea regions, something which normally never happens on the River Kwai  in Kanchanaburi City.

Maximum load capacity : 300 kilos (600 pounds), with maximum  3 persons  on board : 2 adults paddling simultaneously side by side + 1 teenager sitting and relaxing on the center platform.

Hydrobike is a propeller driven human powered watercraft which utilizes advanced aeronautical engineering design principles.

Developed and Made in the U.S.A. since 25 years (1990), Hydrobike has become synonimous worldwide with eco-friendly pedal powered family fun and fitness on the water in 72 countries so far, enjoyed by everyone from 8 to 80 years old.

Performance and efficiency : Hydrobike computer-designed propulsion system features a 90 % efficient propeller which automatically pivots up and over obstacles like rocks or sand.

Hydrobike allows excellent cardiovascular exercise with recreational, social, physical fitness and sporting benefits.
