Schiller Water Bikes



Founded in 2013, Schiller Bikes is pioneering a new frontier in water biking. A hybrid of premium bike-meets-ultra portable catamaran, the revolutionary S1-C is truly in a class of its own. With cruising speeds of 4-5 mph and top speed at over 8 mph, the S1-C water bike gives people of all ages and athletic abilities an exhilarating bike ride on the open water for fun, fitness, and exploration.

Cantilevered over the water, riders have a unique “glass bottom” view of an aquatic world below. Designed for salt water, the S1-C water bike employs a proprietary drive train that enables riders to easily create forward thrust with a high degree of maneuverability, even in reverse. Featuring Gates Carbon Drive belts, integrated steering and propulsion, and an array of accessories, the S1-C water bike delivers a silent, smooth and incredibly fun cycling experience across the water. Rugged, inflatable pontoons ensure maximum rider safety on the water while also enabling easy stowage of multiple water bikes.

The S1-C water bike is ergonomically designed with interchangeable bike components (saddle, handlebars, cranks, and pedals) and a variety of color combinations. With nearly one billion bikes around the globe built for land, Schiller Bikes is singularly focused on the majestic rides, trailblazing voyages and incredible sunset spins across the water.

Take the ride of your life and bike a blue planet.
