swiss bikeboard – land, sea & snow adventure

Swiss Bikeboard has created a recreational board vehicle that can transform into year-round fun. The Bikeboard’s modular, interchangeable design allows those blessed with an unlimited supply of leisure time, coordination and a budget for toys to pursue and excel at:

  • land boarding: three wheeled powered skateboarding and street and off-road freeride models
  • snowboarding – with steering
  • water skiing with steering

The E-Bikeboard S500 in its land-based motorized form is powered by two Li-Po 10Ah rechargeable batteries and can reach speeds up to 15mph with a range of around 30 miles. It sports two rear disc brakes and a front V-brake. In addition to being rechargeable, the S500 is silent and has zero emissions.
They even make a Bikeboard Snow Junior model.

The powered model goes for around $2,500 and the Freeride version around $1,000. Get specific pricing and purchasing info for the various models @
