Pioneers in the new sport of watercycling
Why our water cycle will be one of your most profitable water vehicles..
1) THE WATER CYCLE WORKS IN WINDIER CONDITIONS THAT KEEP YOUR OTHER VEHICLES AT THE DOCK.
Conditions on the water are often too windy for SUP(stand up boards) ,kayaks or paddleboats. With ALL three of these vehicles their wind profile is just too large to make headway against any significant wind. On the water cycle you are seated(vs stand up) and it’s side profile is also much less than a kayaks. Windier conditions often come up when your vehicles are already out. Our water cycle won’t be affected by this.
The other reason it is so much better in windier conditions is because of the increased efficiency of a propeller(vs an oar) and the much greater strength of your legs(vs your arms). THIS ALLOWS YOU TO TRAVEL MUCH FASTER AND COVER GREATER DISTANCES,MUCH EASIER, THAN WITH ANY OTHER VEHICLE! This really gives your customer the ability to explore farther with confidence and greatly increases the chances of them renting again during their trip. Also because your legs are in much better shape than the muscles used for rowing, your customer will be much less sore the following days and ,again, increases the chances of re-renting during their vacation.
2) THE WATERCYCLE WORKS IN COLDER CONDITIONS.
Since the water cycle is so stable ,you don’t fall in the water and get wet. Since no wetsuit is needed, you can wear warm clothes on cold days which allows you to rent these on those SLOW winter days! This is ONE OF THE HUGEST BENEFITS of our water cycle,,,what else can you rent, that is this fun, when it’s a cold windy day?!
3) THE WATER CYCLE IS SO EASY AND STABLE ANY ONE CAN DO IT!
We used the largest stand up board we could find (12 ½’) and since you are sitting on it, it is so stable, it requires no balance. THIS ALLOWS YOU TO PULL IN OTHER MEMBERS OF A GROUP WHEN ONLY A FEW ARE GOING TO DO STAND UP. Now you can tell Dad when he brings his son to rent a SUP or kayak ,”THAT IF OTHERS IN THE GROUP WANT TO ALSO GO, WE NOW HAVE A VEHICLE WHERE THEY WON’T FALL IN OR GET WET”. This allows the more timid to still go with the group and is an easy upsell opportunity.
4) EXERCISE AND THE “COOL FACTOR”.
The water cycle is a new enough and cool enough that it will attract a far greater market range than any of your other water rentals. It is still so new that it gets stares and people in groups will nudge the others and say “look at that”.
We built it tough for rental operations in a salt water environment. The vehicle is made up of aluminum, stainless steel and marine board to ensure corrosion resistance. The warranty is for a year and covers everything.
We are pioneering this new sport and are coming out with a version that is pedaled with your hands for the disabled or a different workout. We also are designing a tandem model as well as a hydrofoil model capable of speeds up to 8mph! There’s more coming.
