WHY:

You may remember Judah from October when he made the first ever bike ride across the San Francisco Bay using a Bianchi road bike on an older Italian floatation system. He got so excited about water biking, and received so much interest from people around the world, that in December he decided to design and manufacture the most technologically advanced water bike ever created, an endeavor that took just 180 days from idea to product. Judah wants to get people around the globe excited about this new frontier in cycling and water sports. He founded the company on the belief that people should be able to bike across the water that covers 2/3 of our amazing blue planet.
