Z-Triton launches market-ready amphibious camper-trike

Latvia based sustainability & impact startup Z-Triton is launching Z-Triton 2.0 – a production model of their unique and innovative recreational vehicle – Amphibious Camper-Trike.

The vehicle combines a boat, a tricycle, and a camper all in one and offers the freedom to travel both over land and water. The company will start delivering the product to the first pre-orders towards the end of this year and will start rentals in Latvia later this summer.

The product is ready for outdoor enthusiasts who want to do long-distance adventures or short weekend getaways to explore the beauty of our blue and green planet in a sustainable and extraordinary way. Z-Triton is on a mission to shift the way people travel and engage with nature, especially in the current times with the worldwide pandemic and continuous desire to escape in a self-contained and autonomous way. 

After completing the first prototype in 2020 the product received massive public interest. The first pre-orders came in and the first world-renowned impact investors joined in to help complete the company’s mission to revolutionize the way people travel and explore the outdoors. Although fully functional, the first prototype demonstrated that improvements needed to be made before the product could hit mass production. Step by step, a team of changemakers and top engineers was formed and within 14 months of hard R&D work, the new iteration was created. Z-Triton 2.0 has all the features and functions that make it a market-ready product now.

Most of the parts were re-designed and re-engineered making Z-Triton 2.0 a major improvement compared to its predecessor. The product is slightly wider now and provides more room in the cabin allowing 2 people to comfortably sleep in it. The bike part underwent a major redesign and now offers a lot more comfortable ride with rear suspension, adjustable seat, hydraulic disc brakes, 7 gears internal gear hub, and has twice the power – 1000W. The boat mode is also upgraded with a stronger 1150W motor which is integrated into the body and can be lifted up/down from the cabin. The list of upgrades goes on and on.

The product is 100% electric with both boat and trike electric motors, a Li-ion battery pack, and integrated roof solar panels. The body is manufactured in organic fibreglass with polyester made from recycled PET bottles and a number of parts are large-format 3D printed with bioplastics. There is also a plant pot that enables users to carry small trees that can be planted along the way to reforest our dear planet. Therefore Z-Triton 2.0 has a positive CO2 footprint and aims to be the most sustainable RV on the market.

Z-Triton 2.0 has been tested and evaluated with people in the Swiss Alps, Lake Geneva, Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin. Everyone who got the chance to test ride this unique vehicle was taken aback by how amazing and exhilarating it is.
