A stone’s throw from history to launch an initiative in the direction of sustainable tourism development for the Lombard shore of Lake Maggiore. Near the Santana Seaplane Base, Sesto Calende hosted another “first” jump in the 1930s, which served as the “technological gems” that allowed the crossing of the Great Atlantic, the pride of the Italian Air Force. In innovation: the presentation of the Manta 5, an e-water bike that lets the world discover opportunities associated with these new modes of transportation. “An innovation in the name of sustainability, to provide new development opportunities for that tourism sector on our lakes that are preparing for a summer of complete recovery after the severe difficulties resulting from the health alert,” explains the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Fabio Longi.

This e-bike was produced in New Zealand and distributed in Italy by Aquaride, and it aims to popularize a new way of visualizing mobility in the water: a high-tech, and at the same time, ecological and magic vehicle. Equipped with a zero-emission electric motor and carbon fiber chips, to make it lighter, the Manta 5 allows you to reproduce the water cycling experience as safely as possible. Plus, its seven levels of pedal assist make it suitable for all levels of athletic training: from the avid athlete level to the novice tourist level.
