Quadski – Amphibious ATV or self-trailing Jetski? You decide.
Can’t decide if you want to ride trails or carve rivers? Chillax, man. Gibbs Sports Amphibian have taken decision out of the equation with their first 40MPH-capable Gibbs amphibious ATV – the Quadski.
What they say:
The Quadski reaches speeds of 45 mph on both land and water and transitions between them in seconds. At the press of a button, the Quadski’s wheels retract after entering the water and deploy when approaching land.
Previously, no commercially available sports amphibian on the USA market has been able to exceed 10 mph on water. The difference is the breakthrough GIBBS patented High Speed Amphibian (HSA) Technology provides unique on-water performance. Unmatched freedom on land AND water, and rapid in transition – Quadski sets a new standard in flexibility, freedom and fun.
Quadski amphibious ATV can truly be called an All-terrain-Vehicle.
Have you got US$40k and don’t know what to do with it? Well, hang onto your cash until ‘around November’ when the first 1000 multi-purpose production model Gibbs’ Quadski Amphibious ATV Jetski thingies ‘wheel’ (or slip?) out of the the factories in Detroit.
Until then here’s AP’s news interview with the inventor and CEO of Gibbs Sports Amphibian; Alan Gibbs providing more insight into his invention. Not enough? Okay, then drool over the Quadski promo footage after that.
