The Explorer I Hydrobike is the perfect watercraft for recreation and cycling enthusiasts to enjoy the water. With incredibly little effort, you can enjoy and maintain cruising speeds of 4 to 6 miles per hour, plus you can accelerate up to a whopping 10 mph.
On an Explorer I Hydrobike, you sit just like you would on a regular bicycle; comfortably seated upright for great viewing as you cruise by canoes, kayaks and paddle boats with much less effort and fatigue. The Explorer I Hydrobike is the easiest way for you to look good and enjoy your time on the water.
I would rate my overall review of the Explorer I Hydrobike as 4 out of 5 stars. The Explorer I Hydrobike is a really fun watercraft for everyone to enjoy. The design of the Hydrobike is so stable that anyone who can pedal a bike can glide across the water with the greatest of ease. Basically, it’s a bicycle strapped to two pontoons with a pedal-powered prop to move you through the water, so you don’t even need to balance the watercraft. Whether you are 16 or 60, you can really enjoy a day on the lake with an Explorer I Hydrobike.
The Explorer I Hydrobike also provides a great platform for diving and swimming. This watercraft is so stable; it won’t move more than a foot after you jump off. The stability also makes it a great fishing watercraft, keeping you rock-solid while reeling in that trophy Walleye. Plus, the silent operation won’t disturb fish or wildlife, so you can move in undetected.
However, due to the size of a Hydrobike, this fun toy is reserved for lakefront property owners and those with a trailer large enough to accommodate it. Transporting a Hydrobike can be a real nightmare unless you have the right equipment, so this knocks it down one point on the rating scale. However, if you do have a trailer or a lakefront property, then the Hydrobike is very convenient and a great addition to your watercraft collection.
