Quadski Gibbs 

Quadski; in very simplistic terms is the successful combining of a quad bike (ATV) with a jetski (PWC). It truly is an All Terrain Vehicle, capable of attaining speeds of 45 mph on both land and water. The performance and comfort of the ride are the result of a lightweight composite hull, wide track and low centre of gravity, which gives the Quadski excellent stability on land and water.

The Gibbs Quadski is an amphibious quad bike/ATV, launched in October 2012 by Gibbs Sports Amphibians.

The Quadski is a 4-stroke, amphiquad that converts to a personal watercraft. It features a top speed of 72 km/h (45 mph) on both land and water, a proprietary marine jet propulsion system, and wheel retraction. The Quadski can transition between land and water in about five seconds. The Quadski uses Gibbs’ High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology, which includes more than 300 patents and patents pending worldwide.

Developed and manufactured by a Detroit-based team, the Quadski shares a number of features with the Gibbs Aquada. When entering the water, by pressing a button the driver can retract the wheels into the wheel wells within the vehicle’s body and detach them from the drive train.

About 

The Quadski uses a marinised version of BMW Motorrad’s 1.3-liter engine from the K1300. In the K1300, the engine produces 175 bhp (130 kW), but Gibbs advertises 140 bhp (100 kW) for the Quadski. Power is further curtailed to about 80 bhp (60 kW) when in land mode. On water the Quadski uses stoneguard-protected intake, which draws in water before directing it through the engine driven impeller, which with the stator blades and nozzle propel the Quadski at high speed. The steering nozzle at the Quadski’s rear directs the vehicle via the handlebars.

The Quadski allows for over two hours travel time on the water. Its range on land is up to around 600 kilometres (370 mi).
