Enjoy biking new areas? Experience the freedom of biking across a new aquatic terrain with the Schiller S1, a sleek watercraft that functions much like a bicycle.


Cycling fanatics can take their hobby to the water with this specially designed water bike, featuring standard bike components like a saddle, handlebars, cranks and pedals along with a not-so-standard bike feature: a pair of inflatable pontoons to keep the bike above water.


Power is transferred from the pedals via Gates Carbon Drive Belts that assist in spinning the propeller and creating forward movement. Riders can easily navigate the bike with integrated handlebar steering that turns the rudder towards the desired direction.


If riders want to slow down or stop completely, all they have to do is stop pedaling. To turn around, cyclists can easily reverse pedal.



The S1 also allows riders to go from land to water in under 10 minutes and its compact frame and modular design allows them to take the product in their car, store in city apartments and even bring on an airplane.


Available frame colors are silver, black and blue while pontoon colors are black, white and red. Riders can also choose between a low riser handlebar or drop handle bar. The product is available to build online for $4,500.


With the S1, you never have to worry about falling off and hitting the street or sidewalk. Expand your cycling world beyond the three-foot-wide bike lane on the shoulder of the road and never worry about bumping into or getting run over by cars and pedestrians ever again.
