The Jesus of Bicycles? X1 Water Bike Takes Cycling to the Sea
Take one avid Soul Cycler, combine with one large body of water, and mix well — that’s almost (okay, not at all) how this bike came about. Actually, when Judah Schiller created the X1 Water Bike, it was so that he could ride across the San Francisco Bay. Built like a bike, with handlebars, saddles, cranks, pedals, but with aquatic-friendly features like propellers and dual-chamber pontoons, the X1 offers riders the chance to take spin class to the open water. Depending on the rider’s ability, the bike can reach a speed of about 10 mph. It’s also easily transportable (on land), the lightweight frame and inflatable pontoons can be put together in about 10 minutes. We’re just hoping you don’t need Crocs or some other not-so-fashionable water shoe to take the X1 Water Bike for a spin.
