Cycling on water has never been so easy!
What is the RIVIKE?
The RIVIKE is the first water bike with an inflatable board. It offers a new way to have fun, halfway between fitness and leisure. The RIVIKE is a unique take on water sports, a perfect blend of physical exercise and relaxation.
It represents quite a revolution in paddleboarding!
How does it work?
The RIVIKE is a water bike made up of three components:
- An inflatable stand-up-paddle board
- A propulsion system
- A steering system
Once disassembled, the water bike fits within a backpack!
How did it all begin?
The idea behind the RIVIKE goes back to 2014. On a beautiful summer afternoon, somewhere on the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur), Alex decided to take his water bicycle from the 90’s out for a spin.
As he pedaled around the turquoise waters, he found himself surrounded with stand-up paddlers asking where they could buy one for themselves.
Their enthusiasm prompted Alex to set himself a challenge : to design and bring to the market a modern water bicycle that is fast, light-weight, easy to use and to transport.
Who IS RIVIKE?
The RIVIKE is the brainchild of a group of friends who share a passion for nautical sports, adrenaline and nature. Their goals are to reinvent paddle boarding and to help generalize water biking. Their guiding philosophy : Using innovation to enhance leisure and water sports.
How far advanced is the RIVIKE?
Using his experience in engineering, as well as modeling software and a 3-D printer, Alex designed and developed a working prototype. This prototype enables you to cycle on water at a speed of up to 15 km/h (9.3 mph).
