There’s something to be said about a beautiful design that ticks all the boxes in the “useful” category Rico Kersten seems to have achieved that with this vehicle that seems to have come straight out of the future. We’re calling it the “Hover Cycle”.

The single pilot compact vehicle achieves both lift and thrust from a single, large, very powerful fan and it maneuvers with fins located at the rear controlled by the rider. Without ground contact, higher speeds can be achieved as the only thing causing resistance is air. But what about braking? Two reverse thrusters divert air in the opposite direction to slow the vehicle.
