Folks, Schiller isn't a new company, but because they've managed to stay alive as a supplier of vehicles that extend the boundaries of human travel, sports, and fun, I've decided to bring to light the work they create the S1-C water bikes. Born in Mill Valley, California, this team is no stranger to fun in the sun or being out at sea.
Now let's dive deeper and witness what you can broaden your horizons with for no more than $5,000 (€4,900 at current exchange rates). That's all you'll be dishing out for one of these machines, and frankly, that's a lower price than we're being asked to pay for some terrestrial bicycles; with an S1-C, you'll be able to explore lands like never before, and that's what you're mostly paying for here.
After all, the design isn't very complicated; there are two rafts set up catamaran-style, and in the middle of the action is you, pedaling yourself to safety like you just witnessed some shark fins floating in the local bay. But there's more to this story than meets the eye, so do continue reading.
You'll see a propeller mounted to the rear of the catamaran to transfer all the power you produce while pedaling into momentum. It's this feature alone that's responsible for helping you cover precious ground and steering. All that's to be controlled by the integrated handlebars. And don't worry much about shallows; it's a retractable feature, allowing you to lift it out of the water.
Which reminds me, because the S1-C is built from multiple separate parts, you can quickly load this up into your RV's garage or mount it to that roof rack on your car or even in the trunk. This could also be a great addition if you own a yacht or other seafaring vehicles.
At the end of the day, it's not the vehicle for every occasion, but it does come across as the perfect addition to your summer beach house or lakeside abode. Heck, Schiller's website even shows good ol' Connor McGregor rocking one of these puppies, and we all know that gentleman likes to stay in shape. It sounds like a neat way to do so if you ask me.
