The UIM Aquabike World Championships embody a youthful exuberance and culture across four international series.
It is one of the fastest, most spectacular and entertaining sports on water that brings together dynamic enthusiasm and the utmost in professionalism.
It is an event that combines speed, skill, artistry and sheer raw power that produces adrenalin-fuelled non-stop action, edge-of-the-seat racing and improbable feats of artistry and acrobatics.
One of the most spectacular categories with riders producing an array of gravity defying aerial acrobatics and tricks that demand extreme skill and strength. The Ski bikes used are open specification and modified specifically for use in Freestyle. The bikes weight approximately 100-125kgs with modified engines to produce in excess of 200hp.
The Blue Riband category in Aquabike and the biggest, most powerful and fastest bikes on the water. The riders can race seated or standing and reach speeds in excess of 170 km/h due to the weight to horsepower ratio. Runabout bikes are used in five different UIM disciplines: Circuit, Offshore, Endurance, Jet Raid and Parallel Slalom.
Designed to be driven standing up, riders combine the agility and skill of a mix of downhill skiing and motorcycle racing. Ski is the most physically demanding requiring strong upper and lower body strength to control machines that can reach 130km/h. Ski bikes are used in three different UIM disciplines: Circuit, Parallel Slalom and Endurance.
