The Schiller X1 fitness water bike caters to a very specific audience

Schiller Bikes

Going on a bike ride is an exhilarating experience. It’s far faster than running, puts the wind in your hair, and gets you where you’re going quicker through all of the scenic routes. Bicycles are widely available in a variety of styles, and can be used in any area so long as you have the leg power to pump the pedals. Even if you’re exorbitantly wealthy, rolling along on two wheels can be quite relaxing.

Should you happen to have so much money that you don’t know what to do with your piles of cash and enjoy riding on bicycles (custom made out of diamonds of course), then you likely wish there was a way to ramp up your pedal-pushing experience. If you don’t mind knocking out several thousand in one week, then you can get the Schiller X1 fitness water bike. This is exactly what it sounds like. Made of aluminum and steel, this is steered by oscillating propellers that will take you on a stroll over the ocean.

This is a $6,495 purchase, just so that’s out in the open. There’s a water-tight container for your stuff, but that’s pretty irrelevant if you don’t have thousands of dollars sitting around. While the idea for this is awesome and looks like a lot of fun, it is targeting a very specific audience. Not many people are going to have enough money to purchase this in the first place, happen to live near the ocean, and have the physical endurance to not only pedal a distance long enough to really go sight-seeing, but also make the return trip.
