THE SAILPOD

Shaped like a maple seed the sailpod is a very own new type of beach vehicle and offers its brave rider the thrill of experiencing the direct power of wind while roaming miles of empty sand banks. The rider sits inside a protecteve frame, that acts as an axis for two spheres, which allow the sailpod to roll forward. Should the sail catch too much wind it will tilt sideways and be pulled back into place by a counterweight situated under the riders seat.
