The springboard that launched Zapata™ into the world-renowned Hydroflight sports leader it is today. The Flyboard® hydro-flyer allows users to fly, dive and jump out of the water using a personal water craft (PWC) for propulsion. Now in its third iteration, the Flyboard® 3.0 uses the Zapata’s™ Wireless Controller to send the operator to heights of up to 55 feet. Zapata™ has constantly evolved the Flyboard®, now offering 32% better hydrodynamic efficiency, and a 35% weight savings over previous models.
The Hoverboard by ZR® is a hydro-propelled board that allows the user to ride and surf in total freedom above the water. The Hoverboard by ZR® is connected to a personal water craft (PWC) by a Zapata’s™ hose and the user can reach heights of 26 feet above the water and speeds of up to 25 mph.
The Zapata Jetpack™ is a hydro-flyer system designed to allow the user greater flexibility, and a less demanding experience, from a seated position while in the air. Utilizing the same technology and aesthetic qualities as the rest of the hydro-flyer line, the Zapata Jetpack™ modern design weighs at least 50% less than compared with competing products. The Jetpack is more agile, allows more maximum mobility for the user, and is able to be transported with ease.
The Podracer™ will be the testing grounds for future, hose-less Zapata’s™ Air Jet Craft technology. With a completed prototype and development on track for a 2017 preview, the Podracer’s™ advanced seating position will give users the sensation of a flying jet bike, also giving the rider more confidence and proficiency at handling and maneuverability.
The second version of the Hoverboard by ZR® is in its prototype stage on track for a 2017 preview. The updated technology such as the gyroscopic leveling system will allow casual riders the ability to be able to perform on a similar level as advanced riders and extreme sport athletes. The Hoverboard by ZR® will usher in a new standard for advanced watersports.
